Appearance

Ubukata is a thin and slender girl with waist-length gray hair (pink hair in the anime) that has bangs hanging over her forehead, steel dark-blue eyes, she is taller than Tsukushi Tsukamoto and she has a flat chest, which is something that Jin Kazama said to feel "hard" after running into her at one point.

Personality

Ubukata is a haughty and popular student who is egotistical (excessively conceited or absorbed in oneself; self-centered) at first and quite hard on Tsukushi Tsukamoto.

History

Ubukata is in the same class as Tsukushi Tsukamoto and Jin Kazama at Seiseki High School.

After receiving lots of criticisms for a novel she wrote, she decided to quit writing, so when she discovers Tsukushi's perseverance and effort in spite of the criticisms of many (including her) she softens up to him and decides to join the team as a manager.

Plot

Skills

Thorough Note Taking

As a former writer, Chikako makes detailed and technical notes, even when it was initially impossible for her to understand. She took a week off before the Finals of Nationals Qualifiers to scout Touin, and returned in time to give a through team talk and plan.

Relationships

Tsukushi Tsukamoto

Ubukata doesn't start out liking Tsukushi much, finding him wimpy and annoying and feeling irritated at his hard work and dedication. Turns out that hatred mostly stems from frustration, as she sees her past self reflected in him and hates the constant reminder of her disillusionment, but with time his idealism starts to get through to her and she, too, starts believing in the power of hard work again thanks to him. After becoming the team's manager she continues to be rather rough with him, frequently making use of his kindness to make him run errands and calling him an idiot on a regular basis, but she does care about him. When he blames himself for the loss to Saku High she talks him out of it, when he and Jin Kazama briefly fall out during the Seikan match she brings them back together, and overall the two are shown to see each other as good friends despite her emotional awkwardness.

Jin Kazama

Ubukata and Kazama can't get along whatsoever that he calls her a "washboard" at every opportunity, and she retaliates by beating him up for being a pervert; Kazama also isn't too happy to see her being friends with Tsukushi Tsukamoto and tries to dissuade his friend from pursuing her romantically on some occasions, even though neither of them have shown any interest in each other beyond friendship, saying she's no good for him. Their relationship finally takes a turn for the better when Ubukata talks sense into Kazama after he's had a falling out with Tsukushi, and afterwards they're often seen observing matches from the bench together when Kazama isn't playing, discussing the strategies and tactics of the match together. They're still far from being friends, but for the moment they're capable of getting along.
