Ayano Takashina is Azuma's prospective fiance who appears in the 11th episode of the anime. Like Azuma, she is a child of a wealthy family. She has long black hair and really likes Azuma, though the later he does not harbor feelings for her. She has a very weird way of speech which gives people the wrong impression, as stated by Miyabi. Despite her mature appearance, she is only a first year, the same age as Shouko and Keiichi. It is revealed that Azuma and Ayano first met during a party when they were younger and she instantly fell in love when Azuma gave her a glass of juice. However, during the near end of the 14th episode, he asks her to focus on her studies and grow up properly, not chasing after him and wasting her youth on things such as their engagement.
