Mitama's powers center around strengthening other people, but she is not powerful enough to fight witches herself. Instead, she makes a living by enhancing the magic of the other magical girls in exchange for grief seeds.
The Doppel of memento mori. Its form is flower petals. The master of this emotion attempts to bring ruin to everything, out of resentment for the environment in which she lives. This Doppel does not forget death, which comes equally to all things in creation. It covers everything with fluttering petals, and gracefully comes to escort away girls with its white gloves. Both it and its master have no way to attack directly, but its power, which exists alongside the demise of all things, is fearsome nonetheless. All magical energy covered by its flowers will wither away, leaving nothing behind. Should this Doppel’s master continually seek its power, her left arm may eventually fuse with it completely.
Ayaka Mariko and Shizuku Hozumi go to Mitama's place in order to decide what place they should visit next. Ayaka asks Mitama to throw darts on a map. The dart lands on the Japan Trench, a deep area in the Pacific Ocean. When Mitama says they're heading to the bottom of the ocean, Shizuku says she's going to leave. She says that while aimlessly wandering is fine, she doesn't want to be made fun of. A worried Ayaka runs after Shizuku. Mitama thinks that she can understand Shizuku's desire to find a place where she belongs, but in her own case that place was stolen from her.
Felicia Mitsuki appears, having heard Mitama muttering to herself. She says she's here for an adjustment, but admits that she also wants to know who Mitama is. Mitama, stutters a bit and says that it's cooler to be mysterious. Felicia says she still wants to know, but Mitama ignores her question. Afterward, Mitama thinks Felicia won't give up figuring her out. At Yachiyo Nanami's house, Felicia is scolded by Iroha Tamaki and Yachiyo for poking into Mitama's affairs. Felicia asks if they want to know themselves. Yachiyo admits she's interested, but won't force it out of Mitama. Iroha says they can't just investigate when they have school. Felicia gets an idea and runs off with Sana Futaba.
Later on, Mitama is at class and sees Felicia and Sana there. Felicia confirms that Mitama goes to Daitou Academy. Sana is surprised, since Mitama usually stays at Shinsei Ward. Felicia says they're going to keep watching to learn more things about Mitama. She says they might find out how to make adjustments themselves. During class, the teacher says Mitama got full marks on her tests again, but is worried about her attendance. Mitama says she doesn't feel like coming, much to the teacher's annoyance. After class, Felicia and Sana try to look into Mitama's bag, but she catches them in the act.
Mitama admits she was surprised they tailed her all the way until lunch. When Felicia says she just wanted to learn about adjusting, Mitama says it's a matter of individual magic and she couldn't teach them anyway. She tells them to go back to their own school after lunch. The two girls leave. Mitama thinks she's been present long enough and should leave herself. Suddenly a voice calls to her. The voice belongs to Kanagi Izumi, who says she'll stop by that night.
Later, at Mitama's place, Kanagi asks if Mitama is alright. Mitama says it's fine. Kanagi says that if people know where Mitama's from, she might get customers looking for her outside her usual place. Mitama says there aren't many magical girl in Daitou at the moment, and she doubts everyone would come all the way to school to see her. She then asks if Kanagi has come for adjustments. Kanagi says she has, but also says she thought Mitama might want someone to practice fighting with. Mitama says that she's finally learned to use her magic outside of adjustment, and says it's just one way Kanagi has helped her.
Kanagi says she doesn't need to be thanked, since they're two of a kind. Mitama is glad to hear that, but says it might be dangerous to stay with her. Mitama explains her magic is like a curse. It doesn't work on witches, but it can manipulate the magic of other magical girls. By purposely failing an adjustment, she can destroy an opponent from within. Kanagi says Mitama is unique, but Mitama says she's just ordinary. Mitama narrates that she's an energetic 17-year old who grew up in Daitou, attends Daitou Academy, barely attends school, and always gets a perfect score on tests.
Later, Felicia hangs a sign at Mitama's place. It asks for information on Mitama, saying that Felicia will pay in "Decagon Ball Bald Hermit" stickers. (A reference to famous manga and anime Dragonball). Mitama arrives and says she can just take down the poster, but finds it cute. After Felicia leaves, Tsukuyo Amane and Tsukasa Amane arrive. Mitama nearly calls them the "Tooty Fluty" sister, which annoys the twins. Mitama admits she picked it up from other people, to the twins' surprise and disappointment. The twins then say they're there to see how Mitama was doing, saying they heard people were sniffing around about her.
The twins then notice the poster. When they see Felicia made it, Tsukuyo says she feels even more worried. Mitama says it's fine, but Tsukuyo says there are some people who remember Mitama at Mizuna Girls' Academy. Mitama acknowledges that Tsukuyo used to be her classmate. Tsukuyo says she still remembers what happened, and asks if Mitama wants to stop Felicia. Mitama instead asks if Tsukuyo believed in "the story that literary magazine printed". When Tsukuyo says she doesn't, Mitama says it's fine as long as there are people who believe in her. However, she then asks Tsukuyo for a favor.
At Mizuna Girls' Academy, the students discuss an incident from two years ago, whose perpetrator supposedly cursed the school. As Tsukuyo watches, she thinks back to Mitama's favor: Mitama asked her to spread the story itself, to prevent it from being altered. Tsukuyo hopes the gossip ends quickly and admits she added a small embellishment of her own. Manaka Kurumi goes to Ria Ami and Mayu Kozue and tells them about a rumor where the school is cursed. Ami says evil spirits are no match for her. Mayu says that Manaka doesn't know the truth becaus she wasn't enrolled in the Academy two years ago. Ria says it would be easier to explain if they found the literary magazine from the time. Mayu says she knows they keep back issues where the art club keeps it's supplies.
After reading the magazine, Manaka meets Sana and gives her a bento. This appears to be a daily occurrence for them. Manaka asks Sana if she has heard about the rumors about Mitama. When Sana says she hasn't, Manaka explains that Mitama used to be a student at Mizuna, but withdrew before Manaka or Sana enrolled in the academy. Manaka explains what she read in the magazine, but says she can't really believe it because it sounds too malicious. Sana says Felicia has been investigating Mitama, and wonders if that's why the rumor is spreading.
Later, Momoko Togame defends Mitama from a familiar. Afterward, she asks if Mitama will take down the poster. However, Mitama finds it cute. When Momoko still shows concern, Mitama asks if Momoko really believes she pushed down a classmate she hated. Momoko says she believes in the Adjuster she knows. Mitama says Momoko is being vague, but thanks her for her kindness. Mitama then admits that event forced her to return to Daitou, though there was no ill will. Mitama narrates that where she grew up she was famous for her beauty and intelligence, and attended Mizuna until there was a certain incident.
Later, Yachiyo and Iroha bring Felicia to Mitama in order to make her apologize. Sana is there to apologize too. In a flashback, Sana tells Yachiyo that she learned Tsukuyo was asked by Mitama to spread the rumor in Mizuna. Felicia says she didn't want Mitama to suffer. Yachiyo scolds her while Iroha says they went too far. Iroha decides they should go to apologize to Mitama together. Back in the present, Mitama tells them not to worry about it. However, Felicia gives her a Bald Sage sticker as an apology. After Mitama accepts it, she says they're even. Later, Mitama talks with Kanagi and says things have sorted themselves out. Kanagi says Mitama can't be too optimistic. Mitama says it's fine because only Kanagi knows her true self. She admits if she didn't have Kanagi, she would have known peace.
The story flashes back to two years ago. Mitama narrates that she's always been skilled at sports and academics. In elementary school she took Mizuna's middle school entry exam, and won a free tuition. However, there were several people at Mizuna who looked down at Mitama due to her origins. Mitama spent two years trying to change the perceptions of her home town. During her third year, a girl Mitama thought was a friend tried pushing her down the stairs. Mitama dodged it, but bumped into another classmate who fell down the stairs instead. Mitama admits she wasn't sure exactly what happened, but the school newspaper and literary magazine distorted the incident. Mitama was then encouraged to leave the school voluntarily
When Mitama returned to Daitou, she only found scorn from other students, saying that she's a disgrace to Daitou. Mitama was bullied for hurting the district's reputation. When a student says she feels bad for Mitama's younger sister, Mitama snaps. She yells at the students for putting her on a pedestal, stabbing her in the back, and threatening her family. She then wields a fire extinguisher, but is stopped by Kanagi. Kanagi tells Mitama not to give up. Kanagi then says the students are less than trash because they don't judge based on individual merit. She tells them not to base their own value on someone else. The students leave, and Kanagi welcomes Mitama back. Mitama thanks her.
Later, Mitama tells Kanagi she feels empty, and only has hatred in her. Kanagi says that Kamihama is rapidly developing boom time, and Mitama should resent its history, not its people. Mitama says that words and actions come from people, so of course she has to hate them. Kanagi says they're being manipulated by history, taking it's relics into themselves and losing their sense of self. Kanagi asks Mitama not to resent them, but Mitama thinks she can't be satisfied by that. On a rooftop, Mitama yells out her frustrations, saying she hates everyone. It is then that Kyubey arrives. When Kyubey offers her a contract, Mitama wonders if she's gone crazy. Kyubey says she's sane, and if she makes a wish she'll find out if she's crazy herself. Convinced, Mitama makes her wish:
"I want to become the one that destroys Kamihama."
Back in the present, Kanagi says she was surprised Mitama became a magical girl. Mitama says she couldn't even fight a familiar back then. Kanagi wonders if it was because of Mitama's resentment, or because her Soul Gem darkened quickly. Mitama says she was saved by Kanagi's support. Kanagi admitted she didn't think Mitama would survive, since there weren't that many witches in Kamihama at the time. Mitama says she planted resentment in the land herself, thinking "go die" at people. It's then revealed Mitama was saved by someone she calls "Sensei", who was in the same position Mitama was and taught her how to adjust as a way to survive.
Mitama apologies for getting Kanagi caught up in remembering. Kanagi says it reminds her of her initial resolution: Just as Mitama wanted to destroy the city, Kanagi thought that history must be erased. Because of their similarity, Kanagi says her spirit stirred again. Kanagi says she'll see Mitama the next day at school, but Mitama says she isn't going that day. Kanagi tells her not to overwork herself. Mitama narrates that she wished to destroy the city out of resentment, but because she began Adjusting and seeing the memories of others it feels like her hatred is dissipating bit by bit due to everyone's kindness. Mitama says that even if she regrets it, she can't run from her wish.

- The characters in her last name mean "eight" (八) and "cloud" (雲) respectively.
- Mitama means "honored soul," it's basically translated "ancestor spirit". Yakumo, meanwhile, is a famous poem like Iroha's name is, said to be literally the first poem in Japanese ever written (by Susanoo himself, no less). Extremely roughly translated, it goes: "From eight rising clouds I build a wondrous eightfold fence in Izumo to contain my divine bride; oh wondrous eightfold fence."
- Her illustrator is "Punyan"
- Mitama reveals her age during the "We passed the first of that day" event, where she says that she is only 17 years old after being told that she's like a mother to all magical girls in Kamihama.
- Mitama has been shown in multiple side stories to be a horrible cook, and incompetent enough with knives to be a danger to those around her. She appears to be oblivious to this.
- Totentanz, which means "Dance of the Dead", is either a reference to Danse Macabre or a classical symphony.
