Takara has to share a room with Hosaka Kiyomine. Living together isn't easy, and many rows ensue. Kiyomine is very introverted, while Takara is just the opposite.

  • There Is Only One Bed: Played for Laughs as the dormhead actually rearranges their dorm-room so there really is just one bed. They had been (platonically?) sharing a bed for quite some time by then.
  • Will They or Won't They?: Kiyomine and Takara, at the conclusion of the series, it's still unclear if they have or haven't, but if one is to assume on how affectionately they act toward each other in the final scene, one could argue they have.
