Uruka Takemoto (武元うるか, Takemoto Uruka?) is one of the main heroines of the We Never Learn manga series.


Uruka is a 3rd-year student who has short pink hair with violet eyes. She is tanned and has a long ahoge on top of her head. She sometimes ties her hair back on a few occasions.

She wears a school uniform with folded sleeves and wears no socks under her school shoes. When she goes swimming, she wears a white school team swimsuit.


Uruka is an athletic girl and excellent in sports, especially swimming. However, she is appalling in all academic subjects, and very reluctant to study. Once she is studying difficult topics, she burns out easily.

She has been in love with Nariyuki since middle school and is willing to study English when Nariyuki helps her to meet admission requirements for English for the Otowa Sports University. She became more hardworking after she got an exchange offer from Otowa Sports University to study in Australia, provided that she can score over 80% in English in the admission test.

She is friendly and has good relationships with all of the main characters. She expresses her likes and dislikes very easily, often makes Nariyuki unready to understand.

She is good at housework, but she does not tell that to Nariyuki and the other classmates.
