Background Edit

Tanaka is also a good badminton player, as he eventually joins a badminton university due to a recommendation.


On the first day of school, Tanaka was introduced to a transfer student nicknamed Wien. Tanaka was also assigned to show Wien around the rest of the school. As Wien was new to Japan, he usually consulted books about the cultures of the country, Tanaka was persistent that Wien just consult him instead of books as they were inaccurate. Eventually, the two become best friends. Eventually, it was announced that the Badminton Club that Tanaka was in was to be disbanded due to lack of members. In an effort to save it, Tanaka had invited Wien to the Badminton Club. Later on, he was challenged by the Choir Club to save only one of the two clubs via a Badminton Match. Due to a Member disadvantage, the Badminton Club was forced to join the Choir and Sometimes Badminton Club. Eventually, Tanaka learned how to project his voice and sing very well along with the rest of his club. He was also involved in Wien's "WestStop Rangers" Project. Wien was last seen singing "Shiokaze no Haamonii" with the rest of his club as a song to Sawa, who was abroad. It was also known that Tanaka had a crush on Sawa as he spoke to her before leaving but the vocals were off, therefore leaving what he told her a mystery.
