Akemi Asakawa (浅川 明美 Asakawa Akemi) is a second-year student who is on the Machido High School kendo team.

Personality[]

Akemi’s mood depends largely on her relationship with her boyfriend as her phone is always either in her hand or nearby that she is always waiting on a text or call. She constantly ditches practice to go on dates, something that the rest of the team has gotten used to and ignores. Whenever she is having a problem with her boyfriend she will become upset and lose any sort of motivation to do kendo, causing her to go on a lazy defense during matches. However, when she is happy she will put in all her effort and becomes a formidable opponent.

Trivia[]

  • The name Akemi means "bright" (明) (ake) and "beautiful" (美) (mi).
  • Akemi's surname Asakawa means "shallow" (浅) (asa) and "river, stream" (川) (kawa).
  • Akemi has been commended on her excellent footwork.
