Akira is often seen using her phone. Akira is also incredibly curious; this along with her attachment to Komaki gets her accidentally killed during Sadness Prayer.

Akira was saved by Komaki in a fire during a school camp.

Akira in Extra Story

Akira only has a small cameo in Symmetry Diamond, where she is since with Komaki and Miyuki, teasing Oriko. Akira does not have any spoken lines; she is only seen reacting.

Akira in Sadness Prayer

Akira begins investigating Komaki's supposed nightlife after being informed by Koito. As her parents are overseas at the time, this gives her free reign to investigate Komaki.

She tracks Komaki with her phone and finds her fighting with Kirika one night. After accidentally calling Koito instead of the police, Akira ditches the phone and runs out to Komaki after one of Kirika's attacks wounds her. Akira, however, gets in the way of another of Kirika's attacks and is cut in half, with her top half landing in Komaki's arms.


  • Akira "" means "crystal".
  • Namekata "行方" means "whereabouts" or "direction".
