- — Tsugumi after the Inversion in A New Day
Tsugumi Matsunae (松苗 亜実 Matsunae Tsugumi), is a character that appears at the end of Solo Remix. She also appears in A New Day, an epilogue created for the Nintendo Switch port: The World Ends With You: Final Remix.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Tsugumi is a teenager with long pale blonde hair, pale skin, and dark brown eyes with a red ring around the pupil. She wears a white button-up blouse with a plaid red-and-white ribbon around the collar and a matching plaid red-and-yellow skirt with a small black ribbon on the front. She wears dark grey stockings. She has wired white and red headphones, sleeker than Neku Sakuraba's headphones. In her appearances in The World Ends with You -Solo Remix- and The World Ends With You: Final Remix, she carries Shiki Misaki's Mr. Mew plush.
Background[edit | edit source]
Very little is known about her aside from her outward appearance; she is seen wandering down Meiji-Dori Avenue in Shibuya after Shinjuku is Inverted. It is reasoned that she is the cause of the visions that Neku sees throughout A New Day. She is also seen interacting with Rindo in Shibuya.
She is first seen in a mysterious vision seen by Neku, following a vision where Shinjuku is erased. While Neku is unable to determine who the girl is, the Mr. Mew in her grasp prompts him to seek out Shiki in Shibuya.
During the chapter's ending, Shinjuku is subject to an Inversion, whereupon the city is Erased and Noise are set upon the RG. The girl is the only survivor of the incident, and Joshua and Hanekoma speculate that she formed a psychic connection with Neku that resulted in his future visions.
Tsugumi is seen introducing herself and staring at Rindo in Shibuya. Very little is known about her role in the plot.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Prior to the reveal of NEO: The World Ends with You, Tsugumi had no official name and was often called "Hype-Chan" by fans due her appearances in Solo Remix and Final Remix being used to create excitement for NEO. Her name was revealed as Tsugumi Matsunae in the Neo: The World Ends With You announcement trailer released November 23rd, 2020.
