Wakaba is a young woman who is always mistaken for a middle school student due to her youthful appearance. She's a legal adult, but has the physical appearance of a young teenager which is made to look even younger when she wears pigtails. She doesn't let it get her down too much, however, since she is generally an easygoing and calm person.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Wakaba is always misunderstood to be a younger age than she is. Often times it leads to misunderstandings which require her to explain her age, such as making Kate believe minors could drive in Japan. Because of her looks, she was invited to join the “Little Marching Band Girls” unit as an adult member. She took the role of monitor eagerly after the younger girls continued to call her “big sister” and reliable. Wakaba has her driver’s license and seems to like looking at cars. She doesn’t like black coffee.
