Tsukuyo's twin sister, Tsukasa hopes to liberate Magical Girls. Born into a family of traditional bamboo craftsmen, she runs the household to support her father and his apprentice. Though she is cheerful and has many friends, Tsukuyo is the only one she can open up to.
The Doppel of disassociation. Its form is an aquarium. The master of this emotion will not bend or break to any situation or circumstance, but she will lose herself utterly in her other half, the only person who truly understands her. Through this, the two are capable of severing their connection to the world outside. No matter the opinion or attitude taken, together in their miniature world they can only trust each other's presence. No one else can understand them. This Doppel shuts out any unknown values in order to keep its master's spirit stable, though doing so causes her sense of ethics to weaken.
In an abandoned museum, Mifuyu Azusa tells Tsukasa and Tsukuyo that the AI Rumor has disappeared and they need to be more careful. The Amanes apologize, claiming their actions were worthless. Mifuyu says they did a good job on the website and won't blame them. Tsukuyo wonders why their opponents are so fixated on Rumors. Tsukasa says if they just left them alone, the victims will eventually be freed. Mifuyu says that Iroha is looking for her younger sister and found a lead in the Rumors.
The Amanes are reminded of themselves, when they didn't know each other. Alina Gray appears and asks what they're talking about. She says she's curious about their past and wishes, and says she'll let them off easy if they tell her. She says their flutes might become her favorite pigment if they don't say anything. The girls understand, and begin their story.
A long time ago, Tsukasa was far busier than she was, doing errands and chores for her father's workshop. At school, after supplementary lessons ended, Tsukasa would go to leave. It turns out she handles the family finances and grocery shopping. As Tsukasa begins to depart, a girl says she was waiting for Tsukasa's lesson to end so they can hang out. Tsukasa apologizes but says she has to go for errands. The girl says she's boring, but Tsukasa says she has to care for her father's live-in apprentices. The girl asks if that's something a kid should be doing, but Tsukasa says if she doesn't do it, no-one will and she won't have a place for herself. The girl says Tsukasa should run away, but Tsukasa says she can overcome anything with a smile.
Tsukasa claims that in the workshops of the Artisan Ward, the men did the work while the women keep house. This was the outdated tradition her family's Amane Bamboo Workshop went by. As Tsukasa leaves to get groceries, she admits she wanted to hang out too. After returning home she prepares dinner, and does laundry. She finds the apprentices have left laundry in their pockets again. She admits it makes her annoyed, but she smiles anyway. With laundry done Tsukasa prepares to do her homework when her father and his apprentices arrive. Tsukasa says they came early. Her father says the apprentices were cutting so well he decided to give them an early meal. When Tsukasa says that dinner isn't ready, her father says she should have foreseen that.
Tsukasa thinks that no-one told her anything, and she can't meet all their whims. She still respects her father, but she asks him why he doesn't help around the house a little. When he insists it's a woman's job, Tsukasa asks if that's why her mother left him. Her father says not to bring up "that woman". One of the apprentices offers to help Tsukasa, but she says it has nothing to do with him. Tsukasa narrates that with all the chores she does, she sometimes loses sense of herself. When that happens, she plays the bamboo flute she received when she was little. The flute was her greatest source of relief, since she didn't have time for friends.
Tsukasa would go to a shrine to play her flute. One night, on the way to that shrine, she met a person she credits for saving her and reuniting her with Tsukuyo. The person told her she should be careful. She claims that when the sky grows dark and you get too depressed, you'll be eaten by a witch. When Tsukasa expresses confusion, the girl tells her to cheer up. At the shrine, Tsukasa wonders about the meeting, but decides not to worry. Suddenly she saw a person at the shrine who looked like herself. Tsukasa says this was probably the first time she met Tsukuyo, and the start of what led to their wishes.
The next day, Tsukasa still thinks of the girl she saw at the shrine. The girl who invited Tsukasa to hang out asks her if there's something on her mind. She says Tsukasa usually leaves right after school, and is surprised to see her there. Tsukasa tells her about what she saw at the shrine, and wonders if it was a ghost. The girl says it might be a doppelganger, and then says if you see a copy of yourself, you'll die. The girl insists it was a joke, but Tsukasa seems to believe it. Tsukasa decides to go home, skipping supplementary lessons.
As she walks home, Tsukasa seriously considers her possible death, and notes that she has to tell her father and the others where the emergency food is. Suddenly she meets the girl that was on the way to the shrine. The girl says Tsukasa is looking just as down as she was before. She says she's concerned about her and says Tsukasa might be eaten by a witch if she worries too much. Tsukasa asks if she's being recruited for a cult. The girl says if that's what it sounds like then there are no witches and Tsukasa should forget it. In any case, the girl says Tsukasa shouldn't worry too much, since it could effect her body as well. Tsukasa says if she could easily solve her problems she wouldn't be worrying.
The girl invites Tsukasa for tea, saying they could come up with an answer together. Tsukasa says she doesn't know who the girl is. The girl introduces herself as Kanagi Izumi. Tsukasa then says she doesn't have any money. Kanagi admits she only has enough money for juice in the vending machine. Tsukasa tells Kanagi about the girl she saw at the shrine, which Kanagi finds fascinating. She suggests Tsukasa go meet the girl at the shrine again, quoting an old adage where there are three people in the world who look like you. Kanagi says if Tsukasa is going to die, she should go out fighting. She points out that with all the housework she's done, Tsukasa is probably stronger than the average girl. Tsukasa says that's a strange way of encouraging her, but decides to go to the shrine. Kanagi says that's good and claims it's best for people not to worry.
At the shrine, Tsukasa looks at her feet out of fear. She then bumps into someone which turns out to be the girl who looks like herself. The two of them start talking at the same time, asking the other not to kill them. Tsukasa decides to pull herself together and asks if the other girl's name is also Tsukasa Amane. The girl introduces herself as Tsukuyo Akatsuki. The girls are shocked by the amount of coincidences. Tsukuyo asks Tsukasa why she comes to the shrine, and Tsukasa answers she goes there when she's tired. Tsukuyo says the same is true for her. When she reveals she was named at the shrine, Tsukasa says the same is also true for her.
Tsukuasa begins to wonder if Tsukuyo really is her doppelganger. Tsukuyo asks her what she came here to do, and the two decide to answer on the count of three. They both say they're there to play flute. Convinced that the other is a doppelganger, the two girls try to distract each other, then run away. However, they bump into each other and drop their flutes. The girls see that both flutes are the same except for one difference: Each flute has a half moon shape inscribed in the opposite direction from the other. Tsukasa notes she never understood the meaning of the shape until that moment. Both Tsukuyo and Tsukasa realize that their names contain the characters for moon, and deduce that they're twin sisters.
Tsukuyo explained that their mother is from the Mizuna ward and her grandmother forbade her from entering the Artisan Ward. Tsukasa guesses they were being hidden from each other. The girls then started to talk about themselves. Tsukasa complains about how she has to clean, cook, do laundry and manage money for her family. She says it's so old fashioned, and no-one ever wants to help out. She respects her father, and understands he has difficult work and has to support the apprentices, but she doesn't see what that has to do with her. She says her father always says "That's a woman's job" and thinks there's a limit to how backwards someone can be.
Tsukasa also says even if she's invited to hang out she can't go, and even if she discusses her problems, no-one understands. Tsukasa says she understands and says they're even similar in that way. To Tsukasa, Tsukuyo was the first person she felt could understand her. The girls plan to meet again in the future. Recognizing their parents tried to hide their relationship, the two recorded their contact information under pseudonyms. For Tsukasa, she recorded Tsukuyo under "●", the symbol of the full moon. Tsukasa narrates that her father should have told her.
While Tsukasa and Tsukuyo were happy to talk to each other at first, they began to see different sides to themselves. In a restaurant, Tsukasa asks Tsukuyo about the tea she's drinking, but Tsukuyo says her voice is too loud. Tsukasa apologizes and asks how much the tea costs. Tsukasa says it's a thousand yen per cup, which shocks Tsukasa. Tsukasa thinks she started to grow tired of Tsukuyo's perfect manners and lack of flaws. Tsukuyo then brings Tsukasa to an expensive shop. Tsukasa says that for students like them it's pearls before swine. Tsukasa starts to feel that Tsukuyo's attention to her appearance was like boasting.
Suddenly one of Tsukuyo's classmates calls out to her. She asks if Tsukasa is her sibling, but Tsukasa says she's just a relative. The girl says Tsukasa has a different feel than Tsukuyo, which Tsukuyo agrees with. Tsukasa says that when she saw Tsukuyo talk with her acquaintances she felt like she was being used as a foil. Tsukasa narrates that the more they met, the more noticeable her differences with Tsukuyo were. In hindsight, Tsukasa admits she was just jealous, but at the time, her friendship with Tsukuyo deteriorated.
One day, Tsukasa returns home and her father comments she's lately been coming home late. Tsukasa says she's made a friend who lives far away. Her father says it's nice she has a friend, and also that she should still finish the chores. He then asks if the girl is from Mizuna Ward. When a shocked Tsukasa answers yes, he suggests she should give up on the friendship because otherwise she'll be on the same road he was. Tsukasa says this shouldn't have anything to do with him and her mom, but her father says it does. He says Tsukasa's mother and himself couldn't bury the differences between their upbringings with just affection. He says if she wants to make friends from outside she should think it over carefully, claiming that if their relationship warps, it will break and won't ever be fixed again. Tsukasa narrates her father's words hit too close to home.
One day, as the twins walked through the city, Tsukuyo showed Tsukasa fancy places that increased her feeling of persecution. The twins tell each other there's something they need to ask. Then they start talking about their mutual dissatisfaction. Tsukasa says that Tsukuyo is giving her a strange look, while Tsukuyo says Tsukasa is being mean. Tsukasa narrates how Tsukuyo was fed up with how impolite she was. Tsukuyo believed that Tsukasa didn't pay enough attention to her appearance and was a rough and violent person. The girls criticized each other, then argued. Tsukasa yells about Tsukuyo is always so concerned with formality. She says she should take a chill pill and relax, as Tsukasa finds it stifling to be around her.
Tsukuyo says that Tsukasa's idea of relaxation is vulgarity. She never asked her to pay for any of this, so at least Tsukasa could reform her manners. Tsukasa says Tsukuyo's lifestyle and behavior is far from normal and says she'll never have friends if she's so formal all the time. Tsukuyo says that Tsukasa's friends are only friends on the surface since she doesn't tell them her true feelings. Tsukasa says they can't understand what she's going through. Tsukuyo says Tsukasa should understand she feels the same way with her grandmother to deal with. Tsukasa says she has to deal with her father and his apprentices. The girls decide they don't want to see each other anymore, and probably aren't twins. Tsukasa thinks her father was right.
For awhile, the girls stopped seeing each other. However, Tsukasa still had problems with her family. One day Tsukasa's father yells at her for the month's expenses being over budget. One of the apprentices points out that vegetables have been expensive, but Tsukasa's father says she should have said something beforehand. The apprentice points out the budget log is balanced properly, but Tsukasa's father tells him to butt out. Tsukasa says they can do whatever they want and leaves. Tsukasa needs to play her flute again, but is worried that she'll meet Tsukuyo if she goes to the shrine. She then decides to play near a lake.
However, the flute fails to comfort her. Tsukasa admits that she wants to talk to Tsukuyo again. She thinks her father was right about not being able to bury their differences, but feels she's going to die if it continues. She still wishes Tsukasa was there to help act as an outlet for her frustrations. Suddenly Tsukasa hears a voice in her head, telling her that she might as well die instead of being a slave. Tsukasa says that in the present, she now knows this was the voice of a witch.
The next thing Tsukasa remembers is waking up in a collapsing witch barrier. Kanagi is there in a magical girl outfit. Kanagi asks if Tsukasa is alright, and says a witch tried to make her throw herself into the lake. Tsukasa doesn't remember any of it. Kanagi (presumably remembering Tsukasa's cult comment) says that witches were from some religion and says it was a monster instead. Tsukasa falls unconscious; the last thing she heard was Kanagi saying "I give up".
Tsukasa then dreams of how she always had to do things for her father and his apprentices, how they gave her unreasonable demands and made her life harder. In her dream she tells her father to shut up and begs for someone to save her. She then sees Tsukuyo, who says to take her hand. Tsukuyo says Tsukasa is fine now and can let go. Tsukasa thinks it's nostalgic. When Tsukasa wakes up, she hears a voice (revealed to be Mifuyu in Tsukuyo's story). The voice says that when Tsukasa and Tsukuyo were born, they were holding each other's hands. Tsukasa then hears Tsukuyo's voice and thinks of her dream. She mentally apologizes to Tsukuyo and thinks if they don't accept each other the way they did before, they can't survive.
Tsukasa arrives at Tsukuyo's room to talk to her. She suggests they throw everything from their pasts away and start with a blank slate. Tsukasa thinks if they don't they'll be crushed by adults. Tsukuyo says she was thinking the same thing, and they should start over from when they received their names from the shrine. The girls agree to become each other's sisters again. Tsukuyo says they might end up hating each other again, and the girls think their hearts might not be able to take it. When Tsukasa thinks of her father's words from earlier, Kyubey appears and says their pledge can be granted as a wish. The girls both wish for the same thing: "I want us to never hate each other".
Back in the present, the girls finish their story. Mifuyu says she was quite surprised when she came back to Tsukuyo's room. Alina grunts to herself and leaves. Tsukuyo asks if she didn't like it, and Tsukasa begs for forgiveness. Alina says she won't do anything to them. Their story simply inspired her to make some artwork. The Amanes are relieved. Mifuyu figures they should go themselves. Tsukuyo suggests to Tsukasa that they should play at the shrine on the way back, since it's been awhile. Tsukasa agrees. Tsukasa says she becomes sad whenever she's away from her flute, so it's always by her side. No matter how long she stares at the scenery, it's still a flute. "Oh flute, what are you? A bridge connecting me to my distant sister." Tsukasa narrates that their only allies are each other, and they will always be together.
One day in February, Tsukasa prepares herself for her big plans. She wants to go to the handicraft store later that day to buy some materials so she can make her own outfit for her next meeting with Tsukuyo. Although she can’t afford to buy a cute scarf and a thick leather belt, she can buy the materials and make her own using a how-to book as well as one of Yachiyo’s fashion spreads for reference (even if Yachiyo is one of her hated Magical Girl rivals). The day at school passes and it is now 4:20 pm, which leaves her 2 hours and 10 minutes to get everything she needs to done. Tsukasa quickly dashes from her classroom before her classmates can stop her. She hops onto the electric bike she acquired recently and makes it to the supermarket in Sankyo Ward for their limited-time meat sale. As much as she wants to get to the handicraft store right away, she’s still in charge of making dinner for all the students at her father’s studio so she can’t be home any later than 6:30. She spies Yachiyo Nanami at the supermarket as well and is surprised to find how quickly and focused she moves to get all the best deals. She tells herself to snap out of it and hurries to get the groceries she’ll need for dinner.
However, while shopping she accidentally bumped into one of the studio’s students, Take. Take is surprised to find Tsukasa there since he was just making a delivery for her father. Tsukasa explains she’s buying meat for their sukiyaki dinner. Take says he can’t wait and says he’ll be home by 6:00. Tsukasa smiles as she waves goodbye to Take, but inside she’s exploding. Now that Take has seen her at the store, she knows she only has until 6:00 to get everything she needs or else her father will find out she took a detour to “goof around” instead of focusing on her chores. She hurries to finish her shopping and check out before hopping onto her electric bike and racing to the handicraft store. She’s just able to make it in time to buy the wool and leather she’ll need and still have 10 minutes to make it back home in time. Tsukasa leaves the store and hops onto her bike only to notice that Yachiyo was also at the store and had bought essentially the same materials as Tsukasa. Tsukasa then realized that the outfit she had modeled wasn’t bought but handmade. That gave Tsukasa this weird sense of affinity for Yachiyo but she quickly put it out of her mind as she hurried home. With dinner out of the way, Tsukasa was able to knit the long winding scarf and make a beautiful leather belt with the tools from her father’s studio. Soon it was Valentine’s Day and she was able to enjoy the day together with her twin sister in her beautiful new outfit.
Christmas Outfit (2018)
It was Christmas of last year when Tsukasa and her sister Tsukuyo exchanged gifts at Hotel Fendt Hope. Tsukasa had been waiting with Mifuyu for Tsukuyo to arrive so they could do their gift exchange. As they waited, Tsukasa was telling Mifuyu that she had bought a pair of gloves for her sister. Mifuyu asks if they’re hand-knit as usual but this year Tsukasa did something a little different. She had been out shopping around for gifts when she saw the most beautiful fluffy gloves in a shop window. They were perfect for Tsukuyo, but too expensive. As Tsukasa kept walking around and shopping, she passed by a different store that had the exact same gloves for sale, but this store was having a mega-discount sale that day for the holidays and Tsukasa had just enough money to buy the gloves for her sister. Tsukasa had wanted to buy another pair for herself, but just seeing the look on Tsukuyo’s face when she sees them was more than worth it.
They hear a knock on the door and Tsukuyo enters the room, apologizing for being late. Tsukasa tells her not to worry and makes tea for all of them. With that out of the way, the two of them exchange their gifts. Mifuyu thinks the wrapping on the gifts is so pretty that she can’t wait for them to open their gifts. The two decided to open their gifts at the same time and are both shocked to find they’ve both both the same pair of gloves. Not just the same pair, but the same brand and color and everything! Tsukuyo had seen how popular the gloves were with everyone and thought that Tsukasa would love to have a pair of her own, and Tsukasa had thought the same. Mifuyu figures that since they’re twins it’s only natural that they both thought the same thing. The whole situation reminds her of “The Gift of the Magi”. Both of the sisters had liked the gloves so much and had wanted to buy a pair of the gloves for their own, but instead they had bought it for the other. Tsukasa asks if it’s really ok for her to have these but Tsukuyo tells her that’s her line. Mifuyu tells them they should both be happy since it was what they both had wanted and they were matching with each other. The two of them happily nod and both of them agree to wear their matching gloves along with their matching Christmas outfits for the big Christmas party they’ll be attending. A few days later, Tsukasa and her sister Tsukuyo celebrated a happy Christmas together.

Although seemingly unrelated to their wish, Tsukasa and Tsukuyo have the shared ability of sound wave manipulation, allowing them to greatly enhance the volume and strength of sound and sound-based attacks, most commonly those of their flute weapons.
This ability also allows them to amplify the range of a magical girl's telepathy, their own or that of another, allowing them to contact other magical girls well outside their usual range. This is likely possible because Magia Record establishes that messages, even non-telepathic ones, can be broadcast to magical girls via radio waves.
- The characters in her last name mean "heaven" (天) and "sound" (音) respectively.
- The characters of her first name mean "moon" (月) and "laughter" (咲) respectively.
- Her illustrator is "Hayami Chika"
- Tsukasa is event-limited.
- The doppel names of Tsukasa and Tsukuyo match up - they are references to Tweedledum and Tweedledee from Alice in Wonderland.
