Matake Ogata (緒方 真竹 Ogata Matake ) is Yuji's classmate in Misaki City Municipal High School.
Matake has short red hair and green eyes. In the anime, she is 170 cm tall.
Matake is a strong-willed physically active girl, as well as a bit of a tomboy who tends to be nosy and a bit loud.
Her involvement in Margery Daw's display of outrage in her discovery of Yuji's silver flame almost took her life. Despite managing to survive, her well-being is cherished by Eita to the point of him being overprotective, especially when Margery is close by.

Matake has feelings for Eita; this usually exposes a more feminine side of Matake, as she tends to be nervous when her classmates tease her with Eita, who is equally shy when romance becomes the topic.
She is good friends with her classmate Kazumi. She often tries to encourage her to be more confident, especially in her figure.

- Matake's surname Ogata means "thread" (緒) (o) and "direction, person, alternative" (方) (gata).
