Akane Satō (佐藤アカネ,Akane Satō) is one of the students from Class 3-2 during the second season of the anime.
Akane is a member of the school's Volleyball Club and a close friend of Eri Taki. She is a quiet girl, but can be easily influenced by the moods of others (for example, she likes cola because Eri hooked her on it). She wants to become a cosmetologist after graduating from high school.
Akane is a tall girl with long black hair that almost appears blue. It is tied to two ponytails which both lie on her shoulders. Blue hair ties are used to fix them. Her eyes are dark blue, almost appearing violet. As a Sakuragaoka High School student, she is usually seen wearing the school's uniform properly with white socks.
