She is also an ally to the Kazama Family, especially towards to Yamato.
Story (Majikoi! S)Edit
Tsubame was scouted by Koi Kiriyama, a butler of the Kuki group who was looking for strong martial artists. She was also scouted by Monshiro Kuki and Hyumu Hellsing to help defeat Momoyo Kawakami, assisting her and her father in creating Hiragumo, her ultimate weapon.
Tsubame agreed to transfer to Kawakami Academy on the promise from her father that she would face strong opponents there.Tsubame loves to eat natto to the point where it becomes an obsession as she advertised the natto she loves to eat as well as singing the natto song. Her nickname when she sells and advertises her natto is the Natto Komachi.
She is introduced as the new member of The Big Four or 4 Devas after defeating Otome Kan (Kurogane in the manga) of the East, earning her the title of Tsubame of the East.
Tsubame can fight with or without a weapon as she has studied many different combat styles.
Tsubame is one of the two new female heroines, as well as one of the new five female characters introduced in Maji De Watashi Ni Koi Shinasai! S. She is the first heroine to have a route that can be played differently depending on your choices, with either her or Yamato taking the lead in the relationship.
Tsubame has pink eyes and waist-long black hair. She has white skin and a very athletic body. She occasionally wears glasses.
Tsubame is a cheerful girl who is a little bit of tsundere. Tsubame shares Momoyo's love for battle and because of this has become good friends with her.
However, it is revealed in her route that beneath her cheerfulness, she has a dark side. She can be a cold, ruthless and manipulative person who won't hesitate to use and get close to others in order to accomplish her goals, whether it be with her business or in a fight. She did this in her route with Yamato in order to gain the information she needed to defeat Momoyo with her ultimate weapon, Hiragumo. However, despite admitting that she used both of them in order to win, she truly became close to the both of them and eventually regretted what she had done. Despite this, Momoyo has called her a 'carnivore with all that cuteness' and Yamato has said that she is even worse than Momoyo when it comes to her selfishness and confidence.
She has also shown to be very intelligent and cunning, using plans and strategies at a level that rivals both Yamato and Touma Aoi. Nabeshima, the principal who runs the Tenjin school of the Ten Warriors, has stated that she is a master of the art of tactics and has never lost a battle. Tsubame has stated that she has never fought a battle that she didn't think she could win.
Abilities and Skills Edit
Unlike the other Members of the big four she doesn't possess inhuman speed or strength like Ageha, Momoyo, Yukie etc. rather than that her main strength lies in her intelligence and tactics in combination with the weapon(Hiragumo) invented by her father. This is proven in both her route and Koyuki's route that she is capable Momoyo and Seiso despite both of them being stronger. Although she doesn't possess the enormous strength the other Big Four members have, she is still capable of knocking out normal thugs in one hit and it has also been shown that her kicks can still give heavy damage to Kojuuro despite him being a specialist in getting hit.
Extra ordinary strength: she is not at the same level as people like Momoyo, Ageha etc. But her attacks and especially her kicks can still deal heavy damage to an opponent and possibly knocking them out as shown in both her route and in her battle against Gale.
The Big FourEdit
Tsubame is introduced as the newest member of The Big Four, as well as the third strongest member of the group.
She defeated Otome Kan (Kurogane in the manga) of the East, winning the title of Matsunaga Tsubame of the East. In her route, she became official after winning the Tag Tournament with Yamato and defeating Momoyo in battle.
Due to the fact that she defeated the former third strongest member of the Big Four, she became the third strongest without having to have an official match with Yukie Mayuzumi to determine the stronger of the two. However, in her route where Yamato takes the lead in the relationship, she was defeated by Ageha Kuki when she tried to steal secrets from the Kuki company. Nevertheless, it should be noted that in her route and Koyuki's route, with proper tactics and Hiragumo, she has proven capable of beating Momoyo and Seiso Hazakura despite both of them being stronger than her.
- In a recent popularity poll on Minatosoft's website for Majikoi! A, of the current female characters in the series, Tsubame is ranked #2. In the Majikoi! S poll, she was ranked #1.
- She loves Natto to the point that not only does she add it to nearly every meal she eats, but she also dreams of eating Natto in her sleep.
- Tsubame may possibly be a descendant of Matsunaga Hisahide, a daimyo of Japan during the Sengoku Period of the 16th century. This is due to several similarities such as Hisahide's conquest of the Yamato province in the 1560's (Which may symbolize Tsubame taking the lead in her relationship with Yamato, which is an option in her route.), her ultimate weapon Hiragumo (Which was a priceless tea kettle owned by Nobunaga Oda that was destroyed by Hisahide before he died.), her family originally living in Kyoto (Which is where Hisahide surrendered to Nobunaga), her nearly committing suicide when she was defeated and caught by the Kukis in her route (Which Hisahide did when he was defeated by Nobunaga in 1577.), her cunning and scheming nature (Which is how Hisahide is depicted in fictional stories.) and her love of art (Which Hisahide was considered a patron of fine arts.). Tsubame has even stated that her ancestors were involved in the Sengoku period.
- She specializes in many weapons in combat such as bows, swords, machines, spears and even her bare fists. It has even been stated that she can use a switch-axe as a weapon. This may be a reference to a weapon used in the role playing game Monster Hunter.
- Hiragumo's ability to seal instant-healing during her own route is a copy of a technique that Hyumu can use to seal instant healing techniques.
- Her tarot card arcana is the devil, which is a foreshadowing of how she really is.
- Tsubame is perhaps the first heroine in the series with the potential to dominate Yamato and take the lead in the relationship during her route, whereas it was usually Yamato who often was the lead of the relationships in every route beforehand during the original Majikoi!.
