Akemi Roppongi

ROP-PON (Kanji): "six (long cylindrical things)"
GI (Kanji): "tree, wood, timber"
"six trees", a section of Tokyo known for expensive hostess bars
AKE (Kanji): "scarlet, red, bloody"
MI (Kanji): "beauty, beautiful, lovely"

The waitress of the snack bar "Cha-Cha-Maru", the resident of room #6, she is a red-haired bombshell who wears a negligee whenever she's in Ikkoku-kan. Though she may act sloppy, she is quite a sensitive lady who can understand not only Kyoko's feelings but Godai's as well. When the two's relationship was reaching a critical point, she sharply nagged Kyoko in an attempt to make Kyoko more honest with herself. She even threatened to have a relationship with Godai. Also, when the master of Cha-Cha-Maru visited Ikkoku-kan to propose to her (two days before Godai and Kyoko's wedding), she acted ignorant and had fun. Later, she gets married to Master (he recently divorced his wife), and moves to the second floor of Cha-Cha-Maru. (I hope she's not wearing the same kind of clothing that she did in Ikkoku-kan...)

Note on japan character voice: Yuhko Mita also played Benten (Urusei Yatsura) and Anna Puma (Dominion). She doesn't sound that different, does she?
