Nobuta Tanaka is a student in Class 3-D of Kunugigaoka Junior High School. He is often seen with his friend Chousuke Takada.


In contrast to the lanky Takada, Tanaka is thickly built with a round face. He has black spiked hair, narrow eyes, freckles on his face, and lightly tanned skin.


Just like Takada, he is very disrespectful to Class-E. He takes what he says very lightly, casually threatening to "kill" Nagisa without thinking of the implications of his words. However, he is also very cowardly, quickly running away from Nagisa after the later gives him a glimpse of his bloodlust.



Aside from his consistent rudeness, Tanaka, like Takada, has no noteworthy characteristics nor abilities.


Nagisa Shiota

Although he and Nagisa used to be classmates in Class D, he consistently teases Nagisa for being in Class E. He also gets scared of Nagisa when he said that, 'he doesn't know what it feels to kill someone'.

Chousuke Takada

Tanaka appears along side Takada in every appearance he makes, indicating that they are very close. They are so close that they have no qualms holding each other or sharing a two-person bicycle.


(To Nagisa Shiota) "Say something Class E!! I'll kill you!!"


  • According to the Graduation Album [1], Tanaka ends up living together with Takada as roommates.
  • Tanaka gets his first-ever girlfriend after attending his university’s welcoming party for new students. However, because he's so close to Takada, she asks him, “Between me and Takada-kun, who would you choose?"
  • It has become a custom of theirs for Takada to listen to Tanaka complain about his girlfriend while they bathe.
  • According to the Character Book [2], Tanaka and Takada were so close that the girls in their class suspected they were in a romantic relationship.
