The Ritsu Tainaka wiki last edited by OrangeSponge on 03/27/13 06:38AM View full history


The president of the light music club at Sakura High School, Ritsu (or Ricchan as she is called) dreamed of starting a band with her childhood friend Mio. When the light music club at her school was in danger of being shut down after all its members had graduated, she persuaded Mio to join, and set about building the club, and its band, Houkago Tea Time.

Ritsu plays the drums, and is known for her energetic and slightly tomboyish personality. She is often thinking of ways to improve the club and earn more money. Her favourite drummer is Keith Moon from The Who.

Ritsu Tainaka is voiced by Satomi Satō in the original Japanese dub, and Cassandra Lee in the English dub.
