Manaka (愛歌) is an actress who co-stars with Taira Murasame and Cain Heel on the movie, Tragic Marker directed by Konoe. She may be the heroine, co-leading with Murasame, in Tragic Marker for one of the staff members refers to both her and Murasame as the lead actors.


Manaka has neck-length bright-colored hair that has bangs swept to the left side, light-colored eyes or dark-colored eyes and she is quite short, which is one of the reasons why Cain Heel called her a "hamster" and treated her like one.

She is always seen wearing a long-sleeve shirt with a fuzzy skirt and a necklace.


At first, Manaka seems like an impatient person as she was complaining about Cain Heel being over an hour late on the first day of shooting of Tragic Marker and she seems to accept other peoples' quirks without a hitch, but she is also a hard-working person as she states she strives to be one of the top actresses in Japan.

Although she was initially scared of Cain like the other cast members when she had a short encounter with him in which he tapped her head and comforted her, she became more hyper and always tried to stick to Cain's side and get his attention, much to Setsuka Heel's frustration.


Nothing much is known about Manaka's background.


  • (to Cain Heel, under the belief he's the personification of the manga character Kyoshiro) Kyaah! Yay, yaaay! You finally responded to meeeee! This is my first step in joining your character relationship chart! I loooove your piercing gaze and mean words. Mr. Cain, Mr. Cain. Let's have lunch together. If you feel awkward joining everyone, I'll come join you instead![2]


  • The name Manaka means "love, affection" (愛) (mana) and "song, poetry" (歌) (ka).
