Kyoko Ootomo (
Kyoko has brown hair that is always tied up in a ponytail by a ribbon with bangs parted at the middle, blue eyes and she is normally seen with a smile on her face.
Kyoko is a friendly, social and upbeat girl who easily befriends others and even approaches those who are more socially introverted.
She has a darker side to her personality, one that is very resentful and vengeful, holding onto grudges for a long time and being capable of unleashing very hurtful remarks.
She can be considered clingy, for she still wanted to make up with Ko Ogino, and with an inability to move on from the incident.
Ogino breaks up with her after a fiasco between Ogino and Ishigami and she is still hung up about the break up which leads her to Shuchi'in Academy during its sports festival just to say she's still holding a grudge about that to Ishigami. Just before an event, she told Ishigami to go fall face flat in the dirt for being instrumental in getting her dumped, with Ishigami telling her to shut up. Although she was called an idiot by Ishigami, she leaves in good spirits, having told Ishigami what she wanted to tell him. She enrolled to another school due to not passing the preliminary exam.
