Cheerful spunky girl but a bit of a airhead. Ryuji Takasu has a crush on her.

Minori Kushieda is a girl in Ryuuji's class and is initially the object of his affections, and she is Taiga's best friend. She's also somewhat close to Kitamura. She is also known by the pet name "Minorin" (as a form of friendly affection). In contrast to the violent nature of Taiga, Minori is always smiling and cheerful. Her parents are always out working and she has a younger brother whom she takes care of.


She is very athletic and is the captain of the girl's softball club at school, though at the same time she holds many part time jobs. Minori has worked as a mobile phone stylist, a waitress at a family restaurant, and a clerk at a convenience store, steam boat store, and at a karaoke box . She is a glutton when it comes to food, but is also constantly combating with dieting, calling herself a 'diet warrior'. She gets a thrill out of being scared, but actually she likes horror. Despite her air-headed tendencies, she is very perceptive, and is one of the few people to see Ryuuji for the gentle person he is, and is also not fooled by Ami's acts of innocence. She also sees and knows that Ryuji and Taiga love and care for each other deeply despite Taiga's acts of pushing Ryuji and Minori to be together.


She's voiced by Yui Horie in Japanese.
