Natsuko Saeki

(差益) 夏子, Natsuchi
Born and raised in rural Japan into a sake brewing family. Formerly a copywriter at a firm in Tokyo she has come back to her home to cultivate and brew the ultimate sake. Her brother was going to use a rare breed of quotTatsushinikiquot rice that is perfect for growing sake but does not hold up well to chemical treatment. After his death from a longtime illness she returns home and takes on his dream. She has a weakness for sake and is often seen having drinking contests with her friends. Apparently it is very easy to make her cry as well.
