Chapter 4 (Manga)
The tallest among the first years, Midori is blessed with good looks and physique, but has no confidence, is a bit timid, and easily finds things bothersome. He often makes inappropriate remarks and rants. Formal and honorific speech is his weakness. His reason for choosing the academy is because it's close to his home. His house is the greengrocer in the shopping district located beside the academy.
He actually wasn't intending to become an idol; he just entered the idol course by mistake, and now has no choice but to participate in idol activities. He sees RYUSEITAI leader Chiaki Morisawa's brash nature as stifling, but is relatively on good terms with his other two teammates Tetora Nagumo and Shinobu Sengoku. RYUSEI Green from the unit RYUSEITAI.
Midori is a tall young man with a good build. His hair is light brown, short, and slightly tousled. His eyes are a light blue, aqua color. He wears the school's uniform with white shirt unbuttoned at the collar and a red tie, together with a black button-up sweater under the school's blazer, which is left unbuttoned. He wears green sneakers with white accents and laces.
On stage, he wears the green color version of RYUSEITAI. It includes a green leather jacket with white accents and a black shirt underneath. He also wears black form-fitting pants with a green stripe down the middle, accessorized with a star on a belt that has yellow and green strings dangling from it and wrap around the waist. He also wears tall white boots with green accents and a pair of black fingerless gloves.
- Midori's first name means "emerald" or "green," which is also his color in RYUSEITAI, as well as the color of his sneakers. His last name means "high peak," which is most likely related to his height.
- Midori's autograph consists of his full name rendered in hiragana and also features the head of a mascot character, perhaps stemming from Midori's interest in them.
- Midori really likes cute stuffed animals.
- As seen in Biblio, Strawberry Colored Holiday, Shiny First Years, and other stories, people around him often mention how good-looking he is.
- In Climax, Sweet Halloween, and other stories, people often remark he looks scary when wearing a blank/serious expression due to his handsome face.
- In Morning Practice 2, he received an Atlantic footballfish key chain from Kanata Shinkai. He now attaches this key chain to his phone, as shown in his school festival card.
- In Christmas Live, Midori says that he is a big fan of Yuzuru's art, which is supposedly very bad. He also says he would like Yuzuru's autograph.
- It's revealed in Climax that his older brother has been taking exam after exam in hopes to become a lawyer, only to fail every time. This is one of the reasons Midori felt he had to support his family and the greengrocer over anything else, because unlike his brother, he "has no dreams."
- Until Repayment Festival, Midori has never said the Ryusei Green catchphrase correctly, instead opting to simplify it or saying it however he felt like. The most common way he would say it is "The green flames are the mark of compassion... Healing everyone with things like mascot characters... My name is Midori, so I'm Ryusei Green, Takamine Midori..." He uses a similar version in Yumenosaki Ryuseitai Song.

Voice Actor Comment
"It seems to me that Midori Takamine the type of boy who has no confidence in himself, whose body matured faster than his mentality. As in, his physical body grows at a pace incompatible with the mental image he has of himself, causing him to feel perplexed when people start relying on him, making him think: 'Ahh... That's not how I really am...' He tends to complain quite a bit, but he will surely become a great catch, not only physically but also emotionally, so please regard him kindly!"
