Rin Natsume (棗 鈴 Natsume Rin) is the main heroine and the younger sister of Kyousuke Natsume. She is the second and only female member out of the five original Little Busters members.


Rin has long, dark brown hair, which has been tied in a ponytail. Behind her bangs she wears a small yellow bell, tied with a small white ribbon. Rin's eyes are brown with a red shade in the anime and clear red in the visual novel. She is wearing the same, usual uniform as the other girls.


Rin is the main heroine in the story. She does not communicate well and is seen as inarticulate. Due to this, she is anti-social, and is usually seen alone. When playing baseball with the others, Rin is the pitcher of the group. She is one of the two initial survivors of the bus accident.
Rin loves cats and at school takes care of several strays; it is not uncommon for several cats to crawl onto her.


  • Rin's name means "bell", and she wears a bell in her hair.
  • Her English voice actress, Brittney Karbowski, has also voiced characters in previous Key anime series, including Ryou Fujibayashi in Clannad, Ayu Tsukimiya in Kanon, and Yuri Nakamura in Angel Beats!
  • She has given Masato several nicknames like, Trash, Retard, etc. She gained a title given by her brother Kyousuke herself: during the first baseball practice she gets the title "Godly Lack of Control", however in the visual novel if her first route is completed so her skill is better; she gets the title "An Ordinary No-Con" instead.[citation needed]
