Aki-Sensei (安芸先生 Aki-sensei) is a character in Washio Sumi is a Hero, being the girls' instructor and mentor in their Hero training. After the Sange of Nogi Sonoko, she became a Taisha priestess.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Aki-sensei is a tall and well-endowed woman. She has glasses, green-brown hair that she often ties back in a side ponytail, and lets some bangs hand over her eyes. As a teacher, she wore a green shirt with a dark green bow and a forest green skirt. She had gray leggings and black kitten heels.

When she became a Taisha priestess, she wore the de facto clothing, but unlike others continued to hang her bangs over her forehead like she always did so she could distinguish herself. She did not wear glasses during this time.

After the perishing of the Shinju, she lost an eye due to it being the starting point of her transformation into a sacred wheat.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Aki-sensei is strict and stern with her students but is not disliked. She does have a talent for scaring some students into submission. Underneath, Aki-sensei is kind and willing to help.

Interview[edit | edit source]

Question: The teacher in charge of the Heroes was a nameless character in the novels, but in the adaptation she was given the family name "Aki" and her appearances increased. Please tell use the reason for that.

Takahiro: Actually, she had a surprisingly high number of lines in the novel already. It would be weird for her not to show up in the adaptation.

Uezu: Still, this being essentially a story about those three girls, we carefully considered whether we should allow for an outside character like her. Once we decided that she should appear, it was also necessary to give her a name. The meaning of this will become clearer as the story progresses. That's another thing to look forward to.

Takahiro: Also, I think those who read Nogi Wakaba is a Hero may smile when they see that name.
