Hoakari Umeno (火明うめの) is second year and the manager of the Kanagawa High School Rugby Club. She is the sole female member of JinKou rugby club.
Umeno has short brown hair and brown eyes. She is relatively short, being only a centimeter taller than Gion. At practice and during games, she usually wears a white shirt and green track pants. Sometimes she wears a green jacket that matches her sweat pants. Her school uniform is a sailor style uniform.
Umeno is kind, but can be quite cheeky, especially towards Gion. She also has a belief that front-rowers are far more desirable as boyfriends than backs.
As a manager, she does know the rules very well, and often teaches and teases Gion about the rules.
She is described by Yasaka Rie as a frugal shopper.
- Umeno joined the team when she was a 1st year after being invited by the sole third year manager at the time. After she got used to the job the previous manager disappeared.
- Does her job without complaint, but is at an age where she worries about getting sunburned.
