Chihiro Mukunoki is a first year student at Komosawa Middle School and the ace of their mahjong team.
She has long light brown hair with the sides tied with a ribbon and reddish eyes. She wears the Komosawa uniform.
Chihiro is a little flighty and comes up with interesting anecdotes to dodge questions she doesn't want to answer (such as mentioning her phone at 11:11 was at 11%). She is confident in her playing abilities, and thinks that East Shimane is weak compared to West Shimane, despite the fact that in the children's tournament, only the east participates.
It is revealed that when she gets nervous she just wants to run away, and ends up being late to the meeting times with her team, prompting them to want to put her on a leash to keep her on time.
Playing Style / Abilities
As the first year ace of Komosawa, the 7 year representative of the Shimane prefecture, she is really strong. It is mentioned that as an elementary schooler she beat the interhigh champion Kanon Yaji who had recently gone pro.
City Tournament Arc
Chihiro skips the tournament and is asked why by Tomoko Nagami. She then dodges the question by talking about her phone battery. She then jokingly asks if they lost without her today. Tomoko then proceeds to inform her of Yumachi's victory but Chihiro isn't too interested. However, she says that there are much stronger kids where she is from and wishes to show everyone this.
Individual Tournament Arc
While browsing through the records, she believes the east is weak.
Shimane Tournament Arc
She arrives late and tells the others that despite being motivated to win, she is really nervous. When Yuzuha leaves, she pats Chihiro on the head and says she will be counting on her. During the vanguard match, she asks the manager about the lineup and says that she won't be able to get to play otherwise. The manager tells everyone to go all out.
- Ritz Kobayashi mentioned that Chihiro's character design posted on her blog resembles a little Ako Atarashi.
