Tomoyo Sakagami (坂上智代, Sakagami Tomoyo?) is one of the major heroines of Clannad and the title character of its sequel visual novel, Tomoyo After ~It’s a Wonderful Life~.
Tomoyo transferred to Hikarizaka high school as a second year student during spring. Although Tomoya is older than she is, Tomoyo does not show him his due respect as a senior student. She has a younger brother named Takafumi.
In Tomoyo’s path, she is rumored to be violent and to have a misconduct record for fighting. These rumors are later confirmed, when she beats up several delinquents from her previous school at a day during school hours. Youhei challenges Tomoyo, unable to believe what he saw. Tomoyo usually uses chain combos with her high-speed kicks, even combining with Tomoya once. Youhei’s face is usually hidden after the beating, implying it to be too damaged to show on screen. After several meetings with Tomoyo, Tomoya learns from Tomoyo that she wants to be a student council president, and later, her reason for wanting to do so. Her reason is that she wants to get enough influence to start a movement to prevent a row of cherry blossom trees from being cut down by development plans, as they are considered significant by several residents of their city, and the cherry trees have a special meaning to her since they helped mend her broken Sakagami family and turn her away from delinquency.
