Chitaru Namatame (生田目 千足; Namatame Chitaru) is one of the main characters of the manga and anime series Akuma no Riddle. She is a former student of Myojo Academy's Black Class who was in a competition with the other students of that class who were trying to kill Haru Ichinose. The reward being anything that assassin may want. She and Hitsugi were thought to have died during the Romeo & Juliet play but it is later shown that she is still alive, yet still in the hospital to recover from her near death experience.

The reason she came to Myojo Academy is because she was chasing an assassin known as Angel's Trumpet, whom killed her former teacher's daughter.

In the final episode, Chitaru is bedridden due to drinking the poison, but Hitsugi tells Chitaru that she can start rehab soon. Chitaru hasn't fully forgiven Hitsugi as she says she's incapable of saying those types of words.

Assassination Attempt

She attempts to assassinate Haru during the play, thinking that Haru is Angel's Trumpet, but Chitaru never sends a notice since she is not doing this as part of the Black Class competition. She along with Hitsugi become the fifth student(s) to be expelled from Black Class after their apparent suicide.


She seems like a very caring person, and would do anything to get revenge for the people she cares or cared for, as seen when she would risk her own life to transfer into Black Class in order to look for an assassin who may have killed her former teacher's daughter.


She looks like a prince and even older than a high school student.

Chitaru has short red hair and red eyes. She wears a black coat with yellow outer lining with a white collar shirt.

Skills and Abilities

She specializes in physical type assassinations and is an expert at swordplay, as seen when she was facing off Tokaku Azuma, and was winning until they were stopped by Hitsugi Kirigaya.


The only thing known about her past is that sometime long ago, she met her teacher's daughter, but was eventually killed by Angel's Trumpet.


  • Chitaru strongly resembles a male prince.
  • She also had feelings for Kirigaya.
    • Tho she and Hitsugi are quite close, and even fell in love with each other, Chitaru did keep referring to the latter as 'Kirigaya' throughout the entire series.
  • After she is expelled, red roses are placed on her desk, which symbolize Love.
