Chiaki Tougane is a student at Jinnan High School and plays the electric violin. Yukihiro is his childhood friend. He comes from a millionaire family who runs a bank and a steel manufacturer, but he doesn't rely on his parents wealth. Instead he helps his uncle out with asset management to earn his own money.
He has a really blunt personality and says whatever he wants. He often tells Kanade that her performances are boring and she lacks "the inner flower". He is also really self confident and says that he has the skills, the convictions, and the power to achieve anything. He also seems to be competing with Ritsu.
Two years ago Chiaki and Ritsu were the competing finalists in the solo division at a national competition. Ritsu won the event, but there was a judge who gave Chiaki's performance a score of zero. It was Chiaki's father. Chiaki wants his father to approve his music in a rematch against Ritsu.
However, when Jinnan went up against Seiso in the semi-finals, Chiaki gave his best performance which brought about a change in his father's way of thinking, thus finally giving Chiaki the sort of acknowledgement he had always wanted, even after having lost to Seiso.
- Chiaki and Len Tsukimori (from the original series) share the same seiyuu.
- He like the songs of Mozart and Glazunov.
- He likes Japanese food, but also likes the taste of western food.
- His hobbies are asset management and sailing.
