Uruka Takemoto Highlights (Spoilers Beyond This Point)
One of Uruka's best traits her hardworking nature. Ever since she was in middle school, Uruka has dedicated herself to swimming. Even though she wasn't good at it when she started, she stuck with it and eventually became amazing at it. Although she hasn't been able to apply her hard-working nature to her studies, seeing her dedicate herself to something she loves is truly aspiring.

Uruka is able to easily make her way into the study group with ease and befriend everyone instantly. While her personality also leads her to not take things very seriously, especially her grades, it is still one of her best traits.
3. Smarter Than She Looks
Despite how airheaded and aloof she seems on the service, Uruka is actually quite perceptive when it comes to the people around her. When she finds out about the Nariyuki's study sessions, she instantly picks up on the dynamics between the group and does her best to fit in with the other girls, without letting them get close to Noriyuki
4. Cute Side
Whenever Uruka is around Nariyuki, she shows a whole other side to herself nobody else sees. Uruka's one-sided and childish crush on Nariyuki leads to her often going out of her way to try and get him to notice her feelings, but he never gets the hint. While Nariyuki may not understand what Uruka is trying to do, we can appreciate her and her attempts to win him over as we cheer her on from the sidelines.
