Matake Ogata (緒方 真竹 Ogata Matake?) is Yuji's classmate in Misaki City Municipal High School.


Matake has short red hair, and green eyes. In the anime, she is 170 cm tall.[1]


She is a strong-willed physically active girl, as well as a bit of a tomboy. She tends to be nosy and a bit loud.


She knows Keisaku and Eita because of her usual visits on the Satou Residence (even prior to the start of the series) and sometimes acts an extra hand for house chores.


Her involvement in Margery Daw's display of outrage in her discovery of Yuji's silver flame almost took her life. Despite managing to survive, her well-being is cherished by Eita to the point of him being overprotective, especially when Margery is close by.

Other AppearancesEdit

Anime AppearancesEdit

Shakugan no Shana-tanEdit

Dengeki Bunko 2007 Move Festival SpecialEdit

Ogata makes a cameo in this special, seated with Ike, Eita, Keisaku and Margery in the theater.[2]


She has feelings for Eita; this usually exposes a more feminine side of Matake, as she tends to be nervous when her classmates tease her with Eita, who is equally shy when romance becomes the topic.

She is good friends with her classmate Kazumi Yoshida. She often tries to encourage her to be more confident, especially in her figure.




  • Like other human characters in the series, Matake's name is a homage to Japanese politicians; she is named after Taketora Ogata.
  • Matake has the same Geneon English voice actor as Marianne.
