Tachibana- Senpai (as called by Mei) is one of the art club senpai. She never appeared in the anime.
Tachibana has light-colored wavy hair tied in a loose ponytail. She was also seen wearing a clip. Her eyes are dark-colored and she usually wears the school standard female uniform.
Mei claimed whenever it came to nonexistent students like herself and Kouichi, Tachibana wasn't sure how to respond, often becoming terrified. Unlike most senpai, Tachibana refused to give Mei advice. She is kinded-heart and is somehow guilty because of her past of ignoring a student which led him to do suicide. She seems to be naive and optimistic and looks innocent and humble.
She made her debut in chapter 11 as an art club-senpai and an ex 9th Grade Class 3 student. When Mei first asks about "non-existence" and co. , she became terrified and didn't give Mei any advices. When Mei asks again carefully, she said that she can't recall anything about Asakura Mami, the 1996 extra one. When Mei aks about the "non-existence" student, she tells that his name was Sakuma-kun and that after semester 2, because of the pressure and rejection, he broke the agreement. After the new year started, he committed suicide.
- Her surname, Tachibana, means " Erected Flower."
- Senpai is a suffix of respect for ones' elders; roughly the equivalent of "upperclassman," it refers to students who are at least a grade ahead of the speaker, and is a term of respect, similar to "sensei."
- She has only appeared in the Manga chapter 11.
