Eri Tajima (Japanese: 田嶋絵梨) is a high school student and good friend of Nozomi and Noriko Nakamura. After figuring out how Nozomi felt about Ryo back in junior high school, she has been supportive of her both openly and in secret. But she doesn't get along with Ryo very much and often acts short with him because of the way he seems indecisive about Nozomi. Because of this, she comes across as arrogant and a little selfish, but in truth she is just trying to protect Nozomi and Noriko, acting like a big sister.
