|Live-action Name||Mei Yue|
|Portrayed by||Unknown actress (Tsukigomori)|
She is portrayed in Dark Moon by Momose Itsumi. Not much is said about the original Mizuki portrayal in Tsukigomori.
When Mizuki was young, her family was in a car accident, which only she survived. She was adopted by her father's older brother. While growing up in the household, she was never cared for and was often bullied by her cousins, Mio and Misao. However she still manages to grow up with a bright and cheerful personality. She falls in love with Katsuki, despite knowing that he's her teacher as well as her cousin Misao's fiancé.
There is less emphasis placed on Momose's portrayal of Mizuki than there was for the other leads Mio and Katsuki. Probably because Momose encountered no problems with the role. However, she does mention that her acting needs to be alive or else it's a dead copy of the original. To do so she needs to depend on her partner and how they react together.
After Ren has trouble grasping his role, Momose states that it is easier to bring out Mizuki with Kyoko's Mio than with Ren's Katsuki for she can't feel the emotions from him so its difficult to respond. In her opinion Kyoko's Mio is much easier to act with.
Ren deliberately challenges Momose during the Katsuki Acting Test by saying he will definitely make her act it out which angers her. She sets out determined to NOT act like Mizuki, however is frustrated and anguished when she sees that through Ren's manipulations she acted out an even better Mizuki than she could have portrayed by herself.
After this incident, she vows to make herself a better actor. She goes as far as doing her own car stunt scene because Ren was doing his own stunt. This caused her more than a little anxiety, as well as called on inner strength, since she's not the type of person to even enjoy a roller coaster ride.
Despite her sad reality and harsh circumstances, or perhaps in spite of them, Mizuki is a bright, cheerful and pure girl. She has a strong and resilient attitude and does not let her environment and past affect her. She has great perseverance and is very optimistic. She never lets the situation get her down. She's always smiling like the sunshine and she loves to play the piano.
She is a girl who's filled with dreams and is looking forward to her reunion with Katsuki. Despite unfortunate circumstances and being poorly treated by her guardians, Mizuki is still cheerful. She falls in love with Katsuki and feels great conflict due to this for he is her teacher and her cousin's fiancé. She is quite innocent for she is flustered easily by Katsuki's advances.
