Like Shirakawa in " DCII ~ Da Capo II ~ ", he has the ability to read people's hearts ( telepathy ) by the magic of the undying cherry tree, and although he is attentive to the surroundings, he thinks this act is cowardly and dirty. I am suffering from what seems to be the ideal idol from the people around me. This ability plays an important role in her Kotori route.

DC Dream X'mas[]

In "DC ~ Christmas Mirai Koi Yume ~", although it is a parallel world, it is not a little shocking to know that Junichi and Nemu were married in the future world 53 years later.

In "DCII ~ Day Dream Believer ~", Yoshiyuki and others who came from the future are the first to be accepted and supported. She is also one of the few people who noticed a sense of discomfort in the loop world, and she will consult with Yoshiyuki and others in the future.

Actually, on the actual time axis (the world of "DC"), I didn't know Junichi and Nemu yet on December 22nd before the Kripa event, but I already knew them in this world (in the route of Naka & Kyou).
