Eita Tanaka (田中栄太 Tanaka Eita?) is a fifteen-year-old high school student and a well-built classmate of Keisaku's.


Eita is a well-built young man with short dark hair. He has a fair complexion and rarely opens his eyes. He is 15 years of age. In the anime, he is 175cm tall.[1]






When Margery Daw came to Misaki City, she randomly chose the two to be her guides to the city. When he and Keisaku found a Haridan, a magical map to the city that Friagne had been using until his defeat, the two often acted as support. He, as well as Keisaku, shows respect, admiration and affection towards Margery as an "ane-san" (respectable elder sister), but his feelings are more apparent than Keisaku's. However, he has shown some obvious affection towards Matake Ogata. Like Keisaku, he is friends with Yuji and Ike from the start in the novel. After an incident at school festival when Margery berserk and he saw Matake got shot by Margery by accident in the Fuzetsu, Eita decided to keep his distance from the events concerning the Guze and part ways with Satou and Margery.
