As it turns out, Kotomi was Tomoya's childhood friend. He has forgotten her, although she has not forgotten him. Her parents, important academics, were always too busy to attend her birthday when she was a child. Before one fateful birthday, they made a promise to attend and give her a teddy bear, but they died in a plane crash before that could happen. The mysterious man in black is actually a friend of her father's, the one who informed her of her parents' death -- an association that causes her fear of him years later.

Kotomi was too devastated to hear of their death and the prospect of them forgetting her by dying like that without her present and eventually she burnt a catalogue that she thought to be her father's scientific paper (which turns out to be a catalogue for the teddy bear they'd bought her), which started a fire that would likely have burnt down her house, with her in it, were it not for the quick action of that man in black. (Tomoya was there, too, although he forgets about it until near the end of the first season.)

After the fire, Kotomi vows to study hard and make amends for her destruction of (what she thinks was) this seminal scientific work, by becoming an important intellectual in her own right. Socializing simply isn't important to her -- at least until she meets Tomoya again, when they're high school seniors.

Tomoya befriends her and helps her to open up and socialize. Later she discovers that her parents never forgot about her, and the last thing they preserved before their death was Kotomi's present, a teddy bear doll. After this, in the VisualNovel, Kotomi resumes her relationship with Tomoya as his girlfriend. But in the {{anime}}, she gets DemotedToExtra.

* VocalEvolution: When we first meet her, she speaks in a quiet almost-whisper. As she befriends the rest of the gang, she speaks in a more confident, albeit still quiet, tone.

* CastingGag: Greg Ayres previously played ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'''s ButtMonkey, Jun Kitagawa. This makes for one hell of an amusing BrickJoke in ''After Story'' if you remember what Kitagawa said about wanting to try Akiko's jam.



* CastingGag: Both her seiyuu and voice actress voiced another GenkiGirl with GirlishPigtails in a [=KeyAni=] series -- Michiru in ''VisualNovel/{{Air}}''.

** Episode 18 sees her in a four-way battle with Kyou/Ryou, Tomoyo, and even ''Fuko''. The victor is never revealed, as Tomoya was too paralyzed with shock over the brewing harem battle.
