You may be searching for her younger counterpart, Washio Sumi.
Two years ago, Togo was scouted by the Taisha for another group of Heroes with Nogi Sonoko and Minowa Gin. Because of her strong aptitude, she was adopted by the influential Washio family, giving her the name Washio Sumi. Her real family was compensated with lavish gifts for her services and sacrifices. When fighting the Vertex alongside Sonoko, she activated her Mankai two times, first losing the use of her legs and then losing her memories of the past several months. Afterward, she was returned to her original family, who told her that she had lost her legs and her memories in a traffic accident, and she retook her birth name. The Taisha gave the Togo family a lavish house next to the Yuki family, in part for recompense and partly because Yuna had the highest Hero Aptitude of anybody tested. After this, Togo began attending Sanshu Middle School and joined the Hero Club. She prefers to be called by her family name.
Togo is a wheelchair-bound girl with long, black hair tied in a low ponytail using a blue ribbon which she drapes over her left shoulder, along with dark green eyes. Compare to the other girls, Togo grew more maturely for her age within two-year time span from washio sumi being the second tallest in the group and having the largest breast in the entire series which usually well hidden in her school uniform. Her school uniform is a long-sleeved black cardigan with a red ribbon on the chest area, with a cream-colored shirt beneath and black thigh-high socks. Her casual wear is a light blue dress that cuts beneath her bust to reveal a white undershirt. Her wheelchair is black and dark blue.
Her Hero uniform is a tight-fitting blue and white bodysuit with detached sleeves, along with four long, blue ribbons which trail from her shoulders and serve to prop up Togo's body as well as move her around. Her hair grows much longer in her Hero form and is flows freely from a white hairband around her ears. Her Mankai gauge resembles a Morning Glory and is located on her left breast.
In her Mankai form, she has a light blue and white long, flowing kimono-like dress and a golden ring above. Her Mankai takes the form of a large flying spaceship mounted with several laser cannons, which Togo can use to fly around the battlefield.
Togo is a mature, intelligent girl who is nonetheless always willing to speak her mind. She studies computer programming and runs the Hero Club's website, and is also very good at baking sweets. She is a Japanese history buff and is extremely patriotic, refusing to eat non-Japanese food or use English loanwords in her speech. Togo is a pessimist by her own admission who will often begin to have dark thoughts when left alone, but she can also be quite silly at times. Togo prefers to be called by her family name (Togo) instead of her given name (Mimori), even by her best friend Yuna.
Powers and Abilities Edit
As a Hero, Togo possesses the Mankai after expending a great deal of magic, granting exceptional power unique to Togo for a limited amount of time. Every Hero has a Mankai gauge on some part of their uniform in the form of a five-petaled flower. Using large amounts of magic or blocking powerful attacks will cause one of the gauge's five petals to light up, and once all five petals have been lit, a Hero can activate their Mankai form. When the Mankai is activated, rainbow-colored roots of energy will spring up from the Jukai and surround the user in light, before the light explodes into an enormous, flower-shaped aura. Their weapon will also become a much stronger version of their primary weapon. Additionally, the Mankai involves the Shinju granting a portion of its own power to a Hero, and thus it requires a sacrifice in return. This sacrifice is referred to as the Sange (falling flowers). After a Hero's Mankai dissipates, they will permanently lose a bodily function in return, such as Togo's hearing in her ear.
Togo fights using a variety of ranged weapons from a long distance. Her first fairy, Aobozu, allows her to use a sniper rifle that lets her fire powerful shots from extremely long range. Another fairy, Gyobudanuki, gives her the twin pistols that she wields in reverse grip, and her fairy Shiranui gives her a rifle for midrange. Her fourth fairy, Kawabotaru, creates portals around her which autonomously fire lasers at nearby threats.
List of FairiesEdit
- Aobozu: (青坊主) An egg spirit with a blue flower marking on its side.
- Gyobudanuki: (刑部狸) A raccoon spirit wearing a blue robe.
- Shiranui: (不知火) A blue flame spirit.
- Kawabotaru: A light-blue will-o'-the-wisp spirit.
It was revealed Togo is a member of the Hero Club. They are performing a puppet show for the kindergarteners and Yuna suddenly knocks down the stage. They then save it quickly through improv and Togo rallies up the kids for excitement. Afterward, they go out for udon and go back to school. Togo sets up the website and the members are amazed, they go to class but suddenly, time stops, and the event of the forestization happens and they are soon in Jukai. They then met up with Fu and Itsuki then asked if Fu knew anything. After she explains everything a Vertex comes to attack. Togo then is panicking saying "I can't fight" while focusing on her leg disability. After a while, the vertex comes to focus on them and Togo says to leave her. But then, Yuna transforms into a hero ending the episode.
The vertex attacks end and Fu explains everything to the Hero Club. Togo is mad at her for not explaining for the sake of Yuna. They are then soon brought into another battle and Yuna gets thrown around by the Scorpion Vertex. Seeing Yuna smashed by the Vertex, she transformed as a hero with her Spirit. They then bring the battle to an end with the sealing ritual.
Togo is support for her team once more with the Capricorn Vertex and is ready to shoot. They find three swords implanted into the head and Togo tells them it wasn't her. They find Miyoshi Karin and watch as she seals it. The girl soon informs them about her and tells them about basic things. Togo informs Karin they can't let their fairies out due to Gyuki will always eat them. They have a comedic situation and soon are eating ramen together discussing the new member. They have more comedic situations and she comes to Karin's birthday party along with everyone else.
Togo finds the Hero Club's website has many views again. Karin tells them she already made a poster for the cat and is soon met with Togo questioning if it was a monster. Itsuki sighs and she informs them she has a singing test. They decide to go to karaoke for confidence boosting. Togo brings a pair of maracas as well. The song Kokon Musou plays and the Hero Club salutes to Togo singing leaving Karin confused. Togo wishes Itsuki good luck on her singing test along with everyone else. The team hopes it went well and the club is happy to find it does.
The Hero Club overlook as five vertexes approach them. Fu investigates it and tells the club to be ready. Yuna cheers up Itsuki and they soon transform. Togo soon helps Karin and Yuna to destroy a vertex. They defeat it quickly but leaves Togo suspicious with the vertex practically asking to get hit. Her Mankai Gauge gains another petal making it complete. Togo dismisses the other vertex and soon notice some of them fused. She tries to provide backup but to no avail. It blasts a fireball towards Togo leaving her defeated. The heroes then go Mankai afterward finding a soul that comes from space. Yuna and Togo defeat it and come back within a flower petal. They pray to be safe and soon are back in the real world with Karin requesting spirit medics.
The heroes are in the hospital for medical examinations and the heroes notice they lost some bodily functions but is supposed to get better immediately. Togo feels suspicion towards their loss but Yuna dismisses it. Togo is soon in her hospital bed and finds she lost hearing from her left ear. Togo soon discusses the possibility of their loss being an after effect from going Mankai. The heroes visit her in the hospital and Togo records Yuna had no signs of getting better. She finally gets discharged and the club overlooks out Sanshu thinking that this was the city they protected.
The heroes have fun at the beach and are soon headed towards the inn where they find extravagant food. Yuna and Togo act like parents to Karin and they soon head to sleep. Togo tells ghost stories in the dark leaving everyone scared but they stop after Karin sleep talks, "shut up". Yuna finds Togo on the balcony and starts talking to her while doing her hair. As she finishes, Togo loves it.
Togo's best friend, classmate and fellow club member. Togo and Yuna are incredibly close and have been friends since Yuna offered to show her around her neighborhood on her first day moving in. Togo has romantic feelings for Yuna and becomes extremely upset when other people express a romantic interest in her, but Yuna is oblivious to her feelings.
Togo's old friend and fellow Hero. Togo and Sonoko originally met two years ago and fought the Vertex alongside Minowa Gin. Although they originally did not get along, they quickly became good friends and bonded further when Gin lost her life. Sadly, Togo forgot about Sonoko when she lost her memories to the Sange. Two years later, Sonoko summoned Togo to see if she had truly forgotten her, and to tell her the truth of the Hero System. After Togo's memories are returned to her, she and Sonoko resume their old friendship.
Togo's old friend and fellow Hero. They met two years ago and fought the Vertex alongside Nogi Sonoko. Gin's tomboyish and playful nature often clashed with Sumi's studious and serious nature, but despite this, they had become very good friends prior to Gin's death.
Togo's senior, club president, and fellow Hero. Fu was the one who recruited Togo and Yuna as the first two members of the Hero Club. Togo respects Fu as a good leader, and although Togo was angry with Fu when the latter turned out to be withholding important information, she immediately regretted her outburst and apologized.
Togo's junior and fellow club member and Hero. Like much of the club Togo is rather protective of Itsuki, seeing her as a younger sister. Togo cares deeply about Itsuki's well-being and doesn't hesitate to help her out, although her advice is often rather strange.
Togo's classmate, fellow club member, and Hero. Karin seems to find Togo rather intimidating and does not try to bully her, whereas Togo often has fun at Karin's expense. Despite this, they eventually bond over being Heroes and over their relationship with Yuna. When Karin was undergoing rehabilitation, she was more concerned about Togo and Sonoko than about herself.

- Togo's birthday is 8 April, making her an Aries like Yuna.
- Togo's first name, Mimori, sounds like the English word memory, ironic given her amnesia. Whether this is intentional or accidental is currently unknown.
- Togo also shares her first name with the family name of her voice actress, Suzuko Mimori, although according to Mimori this was unintentional. There are a number of gags in Washio Sumi's Chapter about Sumi participating in idol activities, perhaps a reference to Mimori's role in Love Live As Sonoda Umi , and coincidentally both of the character share similar trait such as both of character image color is blue and have proficiency in using a bow. Both of them have quality being "Yamato Nadeshiko" such as using always polite form in their speech. If compared with their closed friend, Umi and Togo is more serious in their behavior.
- Togo is often nicknamed "Botamochi" by fans because of her love of making botamochi and her attempts to get Karin to eat them.
- In Yuki Yuna is a Hero: A Sparkling Bouquet, this is further reinforced by the fact that she often tempts the others with botamochi, sometimes in an effort to stop a quarrel.
- In all the media of Yuusha de Aru, Togo always gets a different nickname that relates to her bust size; since her bust size is the biggest in the group and seems unsuitable for her age. Even though Togo doesn't have any complications about her bust size (as she doesn't really care much about those things), all of the nicknames made her feel uncomfortable. In Washio Sumi (light novel) she was called "peach" since her breasts were the biggest in her class (according to Gin). In the animation, she was called "peaches", and her presence was jokingly described as "being in a fruit store". In the anime, Togo was called "Megalopolis" by Fu. Although Togo didn't have any role in Nogi Wakaba, she appeared in the webcomic along with Sonoko that released once a month along with the novel. In the chapter 3 Togo was called "poyon-poyon" (for something bouncy perhaps) by Doi Tamako.
Togo is associated with Asagao (朝顔) / Japanese Morning Glory / Ipomoea nil, which are said to represent affection and mortality.
