|Series||Rascal Does Not Dream Of Bunny Girl Senpai|
Mai Sakurajima is the main female protagonist of the Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai series. She is a notable actress and model, who is also a third year at Minegahara High School, the same school as Sakuta Azusagawa.
Mai is an attractive individual with a slender, well defined body. She has long, black hair, some of which is held in a bunny-shaped barrette.
In her bunny costume, she wears bright black high heels and wraps her long slender legs that in translucent black stockings. Similar to a black leotard, the outfit highlighted the lines of her body, while the chest made a firm, modest valley. White cuffs accented her wrists and her neck was adorned by a black bowtie.
At school, Mai is primarily seen wearing her school uniform. When not in her school uniform, she wears her casual attire.
Mai is a serious individual, especially around Sakuta Azusagawa. She can be considered as a type B tsundere: she isn't harsh by default, but she can be easily annoyed and come across as somewhat snappy or violent when Sakuta does or says something lewd. She usually responds to Sakuta's openly lewd remarks about her by pinching him, slapping him, or stepping on his foot, but can also be flustered just as easily and her tsundere act fails. Mai tends to ignore and stuff unpleasant feelings down rather than deal with them. Sakuta often points out that she is "dishonest", often lying about her feelings. She and Sakuta enjoy teasing each other, but despite her snarkiness, she's pure-hearted and even shy around Sakuta's jokes.
Mai is very sensitive, polite, levelheaded, helpful, and kind. She also has a very soft spot for Kaede Azusagawa, Sakuta's younger sister. Mai is also very intelligent, she's implied to have very good grades and even helps Sakuta study at one point. Though Mai can be somewhat harsh and strict towards Sakuta at times, and call him a pervert or an idiot, she is genuinely affectionate and kind to him as well, and often says that she loves him more than he thinks.
Before her invisibility was subdued by Sakuta, she harbored deep anxiety over the possibility that she could be forgotten entirely. She was also quite sensitive over the topic of her hiatus, as she still harbored bitter feelings over the circumstances which caused them; these feelings have now subsided since she starting acting at another agency. Because of her anxiety, she used to be somewhat distrustful and pessimistic, still remaining a very compassionate person.
All in all, although she's emotional and sensitive, Mai is a really nice and kind individual. Notable examples include when Mai denounced the hospitalization incident as false for Sakuta's sake, and when she gave Kaede a dress both as a gift and to at least spark interest in returning to the outside world.
She's also very selfless, sacrificing herself to save Sakuta from being hit by a car, and even becoming Shoko's heart donor. Still, Sakuta manages to get back in time to save her.
Overall, she can be described as very similar to Sakuta: they're both quick-witted individuals with a sarcastic streak, yet very kind and helpful, with an immensely good heart and who always do what's right.
Mai found early fame as a model for television, magazines, and books, due to the fact that her mother ran a photographing agency. While she did enjoy her job as a model in the show business, after being forced to participate in a swimsuit photo shoot by her mother in her third year of middle school, Mai realized she was simply used as a tool to make her mother easy money and took a hiatus from acting as a way to get back at her. Unbeknownst to Mai, the effects of Adolescence Syndrome caused her existence to become unnoticed by other people, something that she would soon discover.
