Takendo Nakawaga (中川 武人 Nakagawa Taketo) was the first one to confess to Kotoko Aihara in the first series. He is very optimistic and his face had 85 points as described by Noriko Irie. He had a date with Kotoko and it seems that they both had fun. He helped "Young Matsumoto" go to the tournament of the tennis players using his bike and got extremely exhausted about it. She said thank you afterwards and their relationship smoothened though it was not shown if they were dating or not.


  • The name Taketo means "military, martial" (武) (take) and "person" (人) (to).
  • Taketo's surname Nakagawa means "middle" (中) (naka) and "river, stream" (川) (kawa/gawa).


  • Takendo was called "Taketo" in the manga.
