Haruto's initial love interest in Kimi No Iru Machi.
Nanami Kanzaki is the classmate and initial love-interest of Kimi no iru Machi protagonist Haruto. Despite Haruto's interest in her and the two having been classmates throughout middle school, they hadn't spoken to one another much before entering high school together at the series beginning.
Nanami states a desire to become better friends with Haruto and is quickly befriended by Haruto's new housemate, Yuzuki Eba, and soon begins socializing with the two, as well as with haruto's longtime friends Akari and Takashi in school. However, while she enjoys the rest of the group's company, she sometimes feels she isn't as close with them as they are with one another.
Nanami is considerate, responsible, though she can be quite shy at times, and has a mild temprament. She is usually depicted with a mild blush is sometimes quite passive, as seen when her elder brother Nurumi pushed her into becoming the baseball team's manager, when what she really wanted was to join the cooking club.
While Haruto has been attracted to Nanami for quite a long time, Nanami's thoughts and feelings towards him are often ambiguous.
