|Japanese name:||神岸 あかり|
In the anime she adopts a central role, acting as narrator, with her romantic aspirations forming the main recurring theme of the series. In one episode she actually supplants Hiroyuki as the main character when she befriends the psychic girl Kotone: in all other episodes it is Hiroyuki who befriends the "guest" character of the episode. (In the manga Akari has a less pivotal role (though still a major one), and it is Hiroyuki who befriends Kotone.)
In To Heart: Remember My Memories, her normally optimistic and somewhat naive personality takes on a more depressed and emotional tone when Hiroyuki begins to pay less attention to her and more to the android Multi, and her relationship with Hiroyuki nearly fell apart.
Akari design was used to make Tsukasa Hiiragi from Lucky Star
