Kitakaze Asuka (北風あすか Kitakaze Asuka?) is a world leading marine biology expert and veterinarian. She made her first appearance in episode 36. Her dream is "to understand the sea". She is also an author and she currently resides in Florida.
Asuka has long brown hair usually worn in a thin ponytail. She has tan skin and dark-colored eyes, and is normally depicted in water-related outfits or gear.
Minami's parents, leaders of the Kaido group, are holding an important event in a luxury cruise ship they named as "Sea Dream". They will introduce their daughter as a future member of the Kaido Group and only important people were invited to the event.
An aquarium close to the place where the cruise ship was anchored requested Asuka's services and she went there riding her windsurfing sail. She saw Minami playing with Tina and was impressed by their friendship. After introducing herself, she invited the girls to follow her and learn more about her work. Minami hesitated, but Kanata and the girls convinced her to go.
When they arrived at the aquarium, the girls were impressed by the number of fishes there. Asuka was looking for sick fishes in the tank and she was impressed by Minami's perception when she found one swimming slowly. Later, she inspected the sea lions and the penguins' feeding. She said to Minami that she is fit for this kind of work and they continued their visit.
Back to the cruise ship, Minami is introduced to the guests and she spotted Asuka in the audience. Minami was surprised when she discovered her parents invited her to be part of the Kaido group. Asuka politely declined their offer again, even though they have resources to fund her researches. She doesn't want to be bound by contracts and desires to understand the sea without any restrictions, by her own two eyes. Her answer confused Minami, making her doubt about her own dreams.
In the end of the episode, Asuka reveals that Minami seems a bit similar to her, since both of them love the sea and all the animals living in it. She invited Minami to join her if she feels interested. They said farewell to each other and the episode ends with Minami considering her offer.
