'Futaba seems to have several issues with her self-esteem and often elects to sit out physical education classes. I believe Yumi notices this as she’s constantly and ruthlessly targeted by her. Futaba performs very well in Japanese Literature and spends most of her time reading, but can get lost in daydreams at times. She’s close with Rin but not so much anyone else. Takes well to positive reinforcement [...]'
— Sensei's notes


Futaba Fukuyama ("Futaba") is part of the Main Cast of Lessons In Love. She is one of the 10 original main cast girls.

Background

Born to a pair of unnamed parents, Futaba was granted a great level of independence and freedom from them for a good portion of her life. Before the game starts, she had already been living apart from them, and currently receives funds from them as they work overseas. At some point during these earlier years, she had met Nodoka Nagasawa, and Rin Rokuhara, developing a sister-like relationship with the latter.

She has long respected Sensei, believing him to be a cool and composed individual. This respect eventually involved into infatuation so strong that she had trouble speaking directly to him.

Along with Rin, Futaba is a member of the Manga Club along with Molly MacCormack, and Ami Arakawa.

Characteristics

As noted within Sensei's notes, Futaba is shy and insecure person. Due to her figure, she holds a great deal of discomfort and hatred towards her body. Besides that, she often remarks that she is unworthy of the attention of Sensei, and the love of her friends. She often downplays her achievements, and has a hard time believing any compliment given to her.

Her shyness, while not as severe as someone like Sana, often prevents her from speaking up or standing up for herself. As a result, Yumi is able to bully her relentlessly, and is usually only stopped by the intervention of other class members. Her natural introversion lead her to developing an interest in literature, and she has developed a deep love of reading, to the point of being excited after the opening of a new bookstore.

She is, however, not incapable of overcoming these obstacles on her own. When pushed, or alone with the Sensei, she has displayed bouts of confidence, and aggression.

Relationships

Sensei

Rin

Best friends and roommates at the dorm's room number 4. Both consider themselves sisters, and Futaba mentions that Rin has taken care of her several times in the past, expressing gratitude.

Yumi

Yumi bullies Futaba mercilessly for her weight, especially early in the game.

Nodoka

The two most bookish characters, Futaba and Nodoka have been friends for a long time. In Why Now?, Nodoka admits, "I kind of love" Futaba; Futaba cares for Nodoka, but not 'that way.'

Miku

There are not many interactions between the two, but Miku is very envious of Futaba due to the size of her breasts, as shown in David & Goliath.
