Terakado Tsuu (寺門 通) is a newcomer pop idol singer. She is known affectionately by fans as Otsuu or Otsuu-chan.
Tsuu always dreamt of becoming an idol. Even as a child, she would practice her singing voice with her father as an audience. As she is a tone-deaf like her father, he started to laugh at her not being able to sing which agitated Otsuu to say that she will prove to him for sure. Her father then promised that if she ever fulfilled her dream and became an idol, he would bring a million roses to her first live concert.
Before becoming a breakthrough idol, Tsuu was a street-performer, during which Shimura Shinpachi who was the only one who watched her performance and regains his confidence after being scolded by his boss and start up a fan club to thank Otsuu for giving him a reason to live. Tsuu would, later on, build herself up to becoming the popular idol she is today.
She has dark purple hair and brown eyes. She is usually seen with a green microphone. In Episode 56, Tsuu wears a Shinsengumi uniform.
She has a habit of appending meaningless words at the end of all her sentences. Though she is quite dense at times, she is still a very hard-working, kind, and determined girl.
Her father broke out of prison to see her, but with the help of the Yorozuya, he was able to show up at the concert, saving her from a rampaging Amanto fan and bring her a few flowers. She then told him to bring roses next time, signifying she hadn't forgotten the promise he made that day.
She briefly dated Goemon, leader of another pop-idol group called 'Hansamu'.
