Manabu Takasaki is a 26 year-old male teacher who has romantic feelings for Izumi Sakurai. However, he is unable to tell Izumi as he is too shy to admit that he has feelings for Izumi. He also becomes extremely anxious and agitated whenever he is in a position to express these feelings, or believes that he is being seen while showing them. Thus, he was eventually blackmailed into sponsoring and coaching Igo Soccer after Makoto, Izumi's brother, bribes him with pictures of his sister. He teaches Japanese Literature to students.

He has dark brown hair. As a teacher, he is mostly seen wearing a black trouser, black suit with a white shirt and blue tie with a full-Windsor knot. Sometimes he wears a long-sleeved white shirt without wearing the suit and the tie.



Izumi Sakurai, an easily flustered teacher, is herself a cause of agitation for Takasaki.

Takasaki is usually calm but he tends to panic in situations where he has too many tasks or when nervously talking to his crush, Izumi Sakurai. When he panics, his mind crashes and he carelessly talks about things that make situations more awkward. He also becomes extremely anxious and agitated whenever he is in a position to express these feelings or believes that he is being seen while showing them.
