Tsubaki Takenaka (竹中 椿 Takenaka Tsubaki?) (nicknamed Tsubahi [1]) is one of two younger twin sisters of Natsuhi, the other being named Hiiragi.

Tsubaki has short blue hair tied with a yellow-colored flower ribbon at her left side.

Tsubaki and Hiiragi practice basketball with Natsuhi everyday, although Natsuhi himself does not recognize their talents. However, their combination plays, as a result of being in perfect sync with each other, make them unpredictable and draw their opponents to confusion.

This ability comes to its logical conclusion with the defensive move Twin Hell, a nigh-impenetrable double team capable of stopping even the most athletic players in the story in Maho and Rena.
