Mimi Tasogare was introduced in the first season of the Duel Masters anime.


She first appeared to be a clueless duelist who is fascinated with the Duel Masters card game, but is later revealed to have been a Temple guardian working for the Master. She later ends up befriending Shobu and his friends, joining him on his adventures.

She was also an expert in martial arts and enormous strength, which drastically improved in adulthood. This was shown in a few occasions when she flung Katta sky high as a running gag, cutting a thick metal door and bending a piece of metal with her bare hands. Her intelligence also improves, being able to realize about Prin Prin, the Eternal's true nature just after Katta and taken earlier precautions to prevent the card from falling to the wrong hands.


Season 1

She makes friends with Shobu, Sayuki, and Rekuta at school. However, when Shobu gets an invitation to the Temple in episode ten, she becomes strangely serious and foreboding and while distracting Sayuki and Rekuta, punches a hole in the wall. Then when they are inside, after they see Shobu beaten up with only three tokens left, she becomes harsh and demanding with what seems like a split voice. Fritz, the goblin that loves karaoke, recognizes her, but she cuts him off. And when Shobu is about to duel one of the temple bullies, Mimi 'accidentally' knocks him over, mixing up his deck with hers.

As she picks them up for him, she adds some of her own cards. Shobu notices and is a somewhat angry, but Mimi says it's alright for him to use them. After all, his father is probably using evolution cards too. With the help of Mimi's cards, Shobu wins his duel, plus gains the fifty tokens he needs to be allowed to battle Hakuoh. There's more to Mimi that meets the eye.

Mimi is really a Temple Guardian and a member of White Soldiers, who is sent to spy on Shobu, but is still his friend. She plays dumb and pretends not to know what the card game is really about. Mimi is adored by lots of boys, especially by Rekuta. Most of her cards are Shield Trigger cards. After her duel with Shobu, Mimi begs Shobu to help Hakuoh turn back to the way he was. Mimi seems to like Hakuoh and Kokujo. She has a twin brother named Benny Haha (only in the English dub).

When the first season closes with the duel between Shobu and Hakuoh, Mimi reveals that Hakuoh was not always such a heartless duelist, and her personal connection to him has developed into a slight crush throughout the season. Mimi is also an expert at martial arts and is incredibly smart and strong.
