Raiha Uesugi (上杉うえすぎ らいは, Uesugi Raiha?) is the younger sister of Fuutarou Uesugi. She is the one who cooks for the family, and despite still being in elementary school, she's wise beyond her years.[1][2]


Raiha is a slim young girl who stands at a medium height with long black hair, green eyes, a simple butterfly-shaped ribbon and a huge ahoge on top of her head.



Raiha is a cheerful girl who is essentially the head of the family, despite her young age, since she's the one who takes care of financial matters and cooks for the family.[3] Her mother's absence forces her to spent more time at household matters, leaving her to hold back a lot of things a child normally do.[4] She cares a lot about her brother and concerned about his life, even when both of them have grown up significantly.[5][6]


Fuutarou Uesugi says that Raiha has been holding back all this time due to their family situation.[7]


Raiha is good at cooking as she is able to cook various meals.[8] In chapter 23, it is revealed that Raiha has a mediocre, if not poor, constitution, Raiha is the one who cooks in the family.[9]

Raiha is seen to have good wisdom and perception. She has a good understanding of her family issues and uses those circumstances for her/their benefit.[10] Raiha is also hinted to have a shrewd mind, capable of using her expressions to convince people to follow her lead, or exploit her cuteness to achieve her goals, as shown in several occasions.[11][12] Raiha uses her charms to entice Itsuki Nakano.[13] Raiha is able to connect the four Nakano Quintuplets with Itsuki, despite their different hair lengths and accessories, something that Fuutarou Uesugi is unable to do.[14]

One of Fuutarou's motivation and goals in life is to fulfill all of Raiha's wishes.[18]
