Misaki Harada (Girlfriend, Wife)
Tsubasa Andō (安藤 翼 Andō Tsubasa) is a student at Gakuen Alice in the middle school section. He is double star student, supposed to be that he is a triple but he causes so much trouble that stars have been taken away from him. He is also Mikan's first senpai. Tsubasa is nicknamed Shadow, because of his Alice, while also being called Baldie quite frequently. He later becomes Misaki's boyfriend and eventual husband.
Tsubasa is voiced by Makoto Naruse in the anime.
AppearanceTsubasa has dark blue hair and eyes. He often wears many different hats, though it is unknown if it is to restrain his alice or just fashion. Under his left eye, Tsubasa has a blue star that he received from Rui as a child that gives him shocks by Rui's command. His middle school uniform includes a black jacket and a white undershirt. He wears his blue ribbon untied around his neck. The jacket also has blue lines at the sleeves and going down horizontally at the sides of the opening. The uniform also has blue plaid pants and brown shoes. During winter, he is seen wearing the winter coat on top of his uniform with the coat's collar pulled up.
Tsubasa has an easy going personality and often skips class. He is a cheerful person and has friendly personality. Tsubasa is a little rebellious and doesn't care for the rules or the teachers. During his childhood he was even more rebellious and Tsubasa notes that he was much like Natsume.
He does show some responsibility and punishes Mikan by hitting her on the head when he found out she got in more trouble, and, almost at the end of chapter 32, he spanks her, though it's not shown. Despite his slacker attitude, Tsubasa has been in the academy for years, so he sometimes gives useful advice to Mikan and her peers. Misaki says he has a playboy demeanor, but he hasn't shown any sign of this.
Tsubasa was brought to the academy at the age of three, the same age as Misaki came as. Tsubasa was known to throw tantrums as a child and met Tono who became his senpai and who often bullied him. Sometime, as he got older, Rui put three marks of punishment on his face. He also got in trouble for defending his friend Kaname, because he was being used by the school. At an unknown time he got two of the marks off his face.
Mikan's First Senpai
He first appears when Mikan Sakura gets bullied and Tsubasa at the time was sleeping in a tree. He saves her and becomes her first senpai (upperclassman). He then takes her to the Special Ability Class where there is a welcome party for her. Then, when he entered, Misaki, threw a can to him.
Later Mikan shows him off to her friends and he explains his Mark of Punishment that is on his face. Tsubasa also states that this person can send pain through it and that this person is the only one who take it off. This person is found out to be Rui Amane. It is also said that his friend made Mr Bear.
Tsubasa tells Mikan that they could never come up with anything, because everyone's alices in the Special Ability Class are so different. Mikan comes up with a idea and convinces everyone, including Tsubasa, to try an idea she came up with for the festival. The idea was to make an RPG of Aladdin's magical lamp. He then provokes Natsume into playing the game by making him jealous by hugging (squeezes her) Mikan. When Natsume reaches Tsubasa's part of the game Tsubasa uses his alice and tells Natsume that he can only pass by touching him, but Natsume's movement is locked by shadow stepping. Tsubasa starts playing around with Natsume's movements causing Natsume to create a fire that makes the shadow vanish and Natsume wins and advances. Lucky for him, Natsume did not choose his lamp and did not become his slave. During the last dance he danced with Misaki, but Misaki claimed they were just friends, much to his disappointment, as he has feelings for her. All throughout the manga he has hinted at it on several occasions, yet Misaki has either ignored his advances or shot his efforts down.
He is seen pushing Noda to tell him about Z being outside the academy. Tsubasa is later seen playing father, scolds Mikan for causing trouble, which commented by Misaki that he was holding it in.

The next day, he is worried about Natsume, but Natsume just bickers with him and fights with him. As the group finds an entrance from a volcano that seems fake they entered it and everyone falls down to the ground. With Tsubasa being on the end everyone falls down on him. When the group finds a door Tsubasa tries to open it with his alice, while doing it, a trap was opened on the floor. Mikan falls into the trap and is dragged down by a skeleton.
Tsubasa tries to comfort Natsume, but he ignores him and they stumble upon a Z member. Tsubasa gets injured by one of the Z members. He is almost hit again, but is saved by Ruka who took the attack instead. The group escapes when Mikan releases a powerful Nullification and the building starts to collapse. Tsubasa and the group escape, but Mikan suddenly drops the cure for Hotaru and Penguin tries to get. He then helps rescue Penguin with Mikan, but Penguin sacrifices himself, so the group could escape.
