Here are 10 facts about Itsuki Nakano!
#10 She is a big foodie
You might remember one scene where Nino called her a bun monster. 😀 This is because Itsuki is a glutton who loves to eat a lot (I can relate). We see her often snacking on something delicious.
#9 She has really bad eyesight
Itsuki is often spotted wearing eyeglasses due to her poor vision. Nino has also really bad vision but she prefers to wear contact lenses.
#8 She is a tsundere
There is no doubt that Itsuki, as well as Nino, are both tsundere—at least at the beginning of the series.
Itsuki’s tsundere behavior is caused by Fuutarou’s rejection to help her with studying when they meet for the first time in the school dining hall. It is there where he also makes an insensitive comment about her possibly gaining weight from buying so much food for herself, which only adds fuel to the fire.
She later drops the tsundere act as she gets to know Fuutarou.
#7 Itsuki is the most studious sister
While they all suck at school, Itsuki is the most diligent Quint who never misses a class and always wakes up early. She has shown interest in studying alone as well.
#6 She is most similar to Nino
Not only they are extremely close, but they are also very similar. Both are tsundere, do sit-ups in the morning, have (or had, before Nino cut hers) long hair & fear of needles.
#5 Her height is 165 cm
This has been revealed in Manga Volume 9 – Extra Bonus Comic.
The average height for a Japanese woman is 158.8 cm, so she is quite tall for a Japanese girl.
#4 She is a third-year student at Asahiyama High School
This is the senior high school that Itsuki and all other Quintuplets attend, along with the male protagonist of the series.
Note: from Chapter 69
#3 Itsuki’s name’s meaning
Itsuki means “five” and “moon”. She is the fifth sister, so it makes perfect sense.
#2 Her blood type is A
People with blood type A are described as well-organized. They are stubborn & get stressed out easily. They are usually kind, diligent, and sometimes tense.
#1 Itsuki is 17 years old
Itsuki, like all her sisters, was born on May 5, which makes her zodiac sign Taurus. Taureans prioritize consistency and reliability in all areas of their lives.
