Charlotte Wiki

Takehito Kumagami (熊耳 武仁, Kumagami Takehito) was Shunsuke Otosaka's best friend. 



Kumagami had long light brown hair that covers his eyes, tied in a ponytail, and light violet eyes. He wears the usual school uniform of Hoshinoumi Academy, and he is always seen dripping wet in his uniform when he goes to the student council room as he says it is a requirement to use his ability. This often shocks new student council members; in the first 5 episodes, he appears only briefly to inform the student council members about ability users's whereabouts; in the episode The World that is No Longer Here, he is seen dry rather than dripping wet.


Not much is known about Kumagami's personality. He speaks only after detecting someone to describe their ability. He was a very kind boy who often cares about family; in the episode Charlotte, Kumagami is kidnapped by Furuki on the account of his family being held for ransom, Kumagami willingly obliges to go with Furuki after he discovers this, he also cares in great depth for Shunsuke, especially when the nickname "Pooh" is used.


He is first shown when being wet and he locates another ability user and leaves. He helps the student council locate many ability users. In The World that is No Longer Here, he approaches Yuu when not being wet, thus revealing his face and asks Yuu to come with him. Kumagami then takes Yuu to his brother who explains their past abilities and why he erased their memories. In Shunsuke's flashback, Kumagami is shown to be his best friend and is very loyal to him. He is also called 'Pooh' by Shunsuke. In Charlotte, he is tortured by terrorists. He eventually dies in Shunsuke's arms after protecting Nao Tomori, from being impaled by metal rods after Yuu his power of 'collapse'.


He has the ability to locate anybody who possesses an ability. Originally, it was thought that he needed to soak himself in water while fully clothed to use his ability, but it is later revealed that he only did it to hide his identity. He is a comrade who helps the student council in finding ability users. 


  • In Happiness You Did Not Notice, Kumagami is shown outside the academy for the first time.
  • In The World that is No Longer Here, Kumagami has been shown while not wet.
  • According to Nao, he's good looking when his face is shown.
  • Shunsuke called him "Pooh", a phenomenal fictional bear character created by A. A. Milne "Winnie-the Pooh". The reason for this is because "Kuma" means "Bear"
  • As of Charlotte, Kumagami dies from protecting Nao Tomori from Yū's Collapse Ability.
  • Kuma (熊) means Bear and Gami (耳) means Ear which results in "bear's ear". His name has the same structure to Shunsuke's, which is written as 隼翼 with Shun (隼) meaning falcon and Suke (翼) meaning wings, which results "falcon's wings".
