|Family||Narumi Kanai (Fiancé)|
Akane Minagawa is a music teacher at Mugi and Hanabi's school. Despite being new, she became popular among the students rather quickly.
She was previously Mugi's home tutor and because of that, calls him "Mugi-chan" as proof of how they've known each other for some time.  She is somewhat sadistic and manipulative. She later marries Narumi Kanai, Hanabi's crush, and has a child with him.
Akane has two different personalities.
At school, she displays a docile, airheaded personality, which made her instantly popular. Because of this, she was able to make Narumi Kanai, a fellow teacher and Hanabi's love interest, fall for her. She acts clumsy and cute which gets her a lot of attention.
However, outside school, she's the complete opposite. She goes out with many men and enjoys playing with them, though grows bored of them quite fast, hence is why she spends very little time with them after she lures them in to sleep with her. Having men obsess over her deeply pleases her. She has never really fallen in love with anyone and doubts there would be a "someone" who will make her feel that way will come into her life. However, she is touched by Narumi Kanai's love for her and decides to marry him.
As of Scum's Wish Decor, Narumi and her are still married and have a child. Though she goes on dates and looks at other guys, she never acts on her feelings and constantly thinks about her marriage and her standards of the man she'll have an affair with, coming to the conclusion that the man must be better than Narumi.
Akane is a tall young woman, who seems to be quite thin. She has long and smooth light brown hair with hazel eyes. According to Hanabi's classmates she's very beautiful. She wears natural-style makeup, takes care of her appearance, and is always well-dressed. As of Scum's Wish Decor, she has shoulder length hair.
Akane uses men for her own desires.
She is the main object of Mugi's affection throughout most of the series. He fantasized about her while in his false relationship with Hanabi to fill his desire for her. They had sex as seen in episode 8-10 of the anime. Furthermore, Mugi is obsessed with her to the point that he accepted her slutty side even though she doesn't like him. As of the end of the manga, he has accepted her marriage to Narumi and abandoned his feelings for her in favor of his love towards Hanabi.
Because she manipulates other men, she uses Nurumi to make Hanabi jealous and she hates her, in turn. However, Hanabi would come to terms with her marriage with Nurumi and have cordial conversations with each other.
A fellow teacher at the high school Mugi and Hanabi attend. He has obvious attraction towards Akane which causes her to manipulate him in order to make Hanabi jealous. Although she initially intended to use him to satisfy her and move on she later becomes enamored when Narumi expresses genuine love for her. When he proposes to marry her she breaks down and says that she'll cheat on him constantly and that he deserves better to no avail. As of Scum's Wish Decor, she and Narumi are still married and have a child.
