|“||Manbagi Rumiko is, like, a manba gyaru.||”|
—Volume 10 Chapter 131
Rumiko Manbagi (
Manbagi is a manba-styled gyaru girl with tanned skin, bleached light hair and a very girly fashion sense. She's introduced in ridiculous, heavy makeup, but once that's removed she is revealed to have a naturally beautiful face. She has shoulder-length, wavy blonde hair, a dark complexion, and a curvy figure. Manbagi had a short, black bob and fair skin when she was in middle school.
In Chapter 204, it was revealed that her height and weight are 158.3 cm and 52.8 kg respectively.
Manbagi is a cheerful, friendly girl who easily gets along with people once she becomes friends with them. In contrast to the Shouko, she's quite energetic and talkative. Though the two are more alike than it initially seems, both being sweet, lonely girls who desperately want friends. She seems somewhat naive and insecure, believing that her heavy makeup is what makes her pretty and thinking she doesn't compare to Komi.
Manbagi has a tsundere-like personality, as she can be harsh on Tadano because she's shy about the feelings she developed for him after he called her cute. That harshness has softened as she's appeared and she's become nicer, though she can still be fairly short-tempered with him if she's embarrassed.
- She likes horror movies.
- Her name Rumiko Manbagi (
万 場 木 留 美 子Manbagi Rumiko?) means masquerading beautiful girl.
