{C}Tatsuko Itagaki (板垣辰子) is a fictional character in Maji De Watashi Ni Koi Shinasai! She is the middle daughter of in the Itagaki Siblings who was trained under Shakadou Gyobu, the former Assistant Master who was banished from Kawakami Temple.

Itagaki Tatsuko (板垣辰子) is an anti-heroine (Female antagonist in the anime) in Maji De Watashi Ni Koi Shinasai! She is the second eldest daughter of the Itagaki Siblings who was trained under Gyobu Shakadou and worked as hired mercenaries/smugglers to perform crimes in order to earn easy money by smuggling weapons in anime episodes. She first appeared in the original Majikoi! Visual Novel in the common route and story route.

She is one of the new heroines with her own route in Majikoi! S.


Little is known about her when you originally meet her in the Common Route of the original Majikoi! Visual Novel. However, she and her family play a major role in the Story Route. She learned the Kawakami Style Martial Arts from the former Kawakami Temple Assistant Master, Gyobu Shakadou and like her siblings, she learns the moves quickly.

During her life, she and her siblings have often feuded with the Kazama Family as they share the same style. Her strong feelings for Yamato Naoe has also caused conflict between them, especially with Shiina Miyako and Kawakami Momoyo.

In the Tsubame Route of the sequel Majikoi S, she becomes friends with Musashibou Benkei due to their similar life styles when they joined the Young Lions Tournament in Matsunaga Tsubame's route.


Tatsuko is often seen with her eyes close which usually indicates she is sleeping or in a good mood, though she does rarely open them when exceptionally happy or enraged. Her eyes are a deep green when opened and she has mid length light blue hair. She is very tall and has one of the largest bust sizes in the series, second only to Momoyo. Her clothing consists of a white-sleeveless shirt under a dark blue vest-corset like outfit. She also wears long tight jeans and black shoes.


Among the Itagaki Siblings, Tatsuko is a gentle, yet laid back girl who is very easygoing. She is deeply in love with Yamato Naoe and is very loyal and loving to her family, to the point of fiercely defending them if necessary. Her love for Yamato is so strong, she attacked her brother Ryuhei when he was messing with him.

She is also a very heavy sleeper, falling asleep almost anywhere. This is how she originally met Yamato when she joined him for a nap near Tama river during the Common Route of the original Majikoi! Visual Novel.

Tatsuko can be serious when her hidden power is unleashed, which is usually symbolized when she fully opens her eyes which give off a glow similar to Momoyo, while releasing an almost primal scream.

Abilities and Skills

Tatsuko is able to sleep even while she is standing or sitting. Tatsuko is also a quick learner, learning double lariat with Benkei for the tournament in Tsubame route.

Beastly Aura: When she gets into a fight, her pure beast-like fighting aura is so strong, it rivals those to Kuki Ageha and Momoyo herself commented that she is someone on her level. In the Agave Route, her monstrous aura is literally felt by everyone in the whole city, even if they are miles away from Tatsuko.

Monstrous Strength: She is known to have incredible strength, which makes her capable of ripping out a bus stop sign out of the ground with just one arm. During a fight with Shinshin, when she got her hand on her, she proceeds to defeat her rather quickly. According to her elder sister Ami, Tatsuko's power would be enough to even rival Momoyo's power, making her a formidable powerhouse of The Itagaki Siblings (She also stated that she is the most dangerous among the Itagaki Siblings, willing to attack anyone, friend or foe). This is proven when she defeats both Chris and Kazuko in one blow (in the process, literally sent Chris flying and broke Kazuko's leg), easily deflects Miyako's arrows, and goes toe to toe with Momoyo herself (both in the anime and in the novel) and even manages to beat her to a pulp. With one strike on the ground, she literally shook the earth with one strong blow and everyone around has felt it. In Benkei's route, she manages to overpower out of Benkei's sleeper hold and lands a heavy blow towards her. In Luo Haou's route, she was able to stand toe-to-toe against her that even Luo Haou recognizes her strength before defeating her. According to her master and guardian, Shakadou, she got the most potential among her siblings and her strength is limitless, adding that if she would only get serious, she would be unstoppable.

Monstrous Durability: She has high stamina and durability, making her able to take almost any blow and get right back up without any discernible pain or difficulty.She is also very tough, although getting beaten around by Luo Haou (who's physical strength is even stronger than Momoyo), she was still able to remain standing in the end. She once took a Kawakami style attack that is as powerful as a huge nuclear explosion up close and receives little damage. During Tsubame's route, she took on a muscle-buster by Tsubame during the match and was able to walk away without any injuries at all.

Weakness: Though despite having such strength, she is somewhat lacking in terms of tactics and planning, leaving her to be easily defeated by Tsubame by countering her Kawakami Driver execution. She is also rather slow, this is how she struggles to catch Shinshin, who is a smaller and faster opponent during their fight. And because when she goes berserk and would attack anyone, her older sister, Ami, restrains her from going all-out. She also has a habit of sleeping in nearly any random situation. And is is because of her sleepy behavior, Tatsuko has not reached her full potential.
