Hazawa Tsugumi is a first-year student at Haneoka Girls' High School and Afterglow's keyboardist. She is often called "Tsugu" by her friends.

Eve works part-time at Tsugumi's family's cafe, and Tsugumi herself also helps out there. 

In the second season of the anime, she is a second-year student and continues being one of the student council members. 


Tsugumi has soft brown eyes and chin-length chestnut brown hair in a bob. She has a small side-swept fringe. Her casual attire is feminine with natural colors.

Her original band attire is composed of a gold tank-top worn with a black leather vest, along with a black skirt beneath a sheer layer and a pair of gold and black boots. She wears the choker the rest of her bandmates wear.

In her current outfit, she switches to soft gold ruffled dress with a black lace petticoat, worn beneath a black hoodie with Afterglow written on it, along with splatter markings. This is paired with her choker and a necklace, a black thigh strap, and black boots with yellow socks. She also wears earrings and an olive headband.


Tsugumi views herself as the most normal girl in the band. However, she is a very hardworking and optimistic person who rarely gets discouraged. Her optimism really buoys the other members' spirits. She is the one who also pushes the band to do and try different challenges - for example, entering the Girls Jam in Afterglow's band story, and Tsugumi was even the one behind the girls' idea to start a band. She can easily get flustered however, and tends to panic or have trouble with dealing with people whom she hasn't met before.
