Raina Kitamura (喜多村 来南 Kitamura Raina ) is a minor character in the Hibike! Euphonium series. She is a third-year student who plays the bassoon but marches with pompoms during parades since bassoons are not marching instruments.
Raina is a very tall girl with wavy dark green hair, tied into a pony tail laid on her shoulder, and she has light green eyes. She is usually seen with a normal Kitauji High School uniform for third-year students.
In her appearances throughout the episodes, Raina's face often has a serious or passive expression. However, she is shown with a bright smile while marching the parade.
As a side character, Raina has a very small role in the anime series. While she was present at the section leader meeting in episode 4, she did not voice an opinion. She is shown speaking a line in the background during episode 7 in the Season 1 and episode 1 in Season 2.
- Though her name is Raina (来南), it can be confused with "Kurumi", as it is a much more standard reading.
