Mineko met Moonlight by chance while on her journey to Crestfall, but Mineko is so very glad that she did.
At first, Moonlight's appearance reminded Mineko instantly of her recently deceased friend, Rai, making Mineko think that Rai had sent this girl to her.
Because of this, Mineko allowed Moonlight to examine her, and also try out new experiments with her as her "test subject". However, Moonlight was also the one who made Mineko realize what was inside of her, and also taught her everything she knew about Shadows.
Because of Moonlight's similar appearance to Rai, Mineko bonded to her very quickly, and while Moonlight saw Mineko as not much more than a test subject at first, she now has developed feelings for her, but it is unrequited.
Mineko gets along really well with Moonlight, and loves her sense of her humor. Moonlight's jokes help her to laugh off her depression temporarily, and that is enough for Mineko to be forever grateful for.
Mineko constantly visits Moonlight at her home in the Old City, despite Mineko living in Crestfall.
Mineko loves to call Moonlight "Lumi", despite Moonlight's many protests. However, over time, Moonlight got used to this name, and grew to like it. However, she has sworn to "kill" anyone else who calls her by that name.
Maxi is Mineko’s life saver. Literally.
Maxi is the only one who can truly get Mineko’s mind off of her fate, and without him, she would have given in to her fate and depression long ago.
Mineko sees Maxi as one of her main reasons of living and hanging on to life.
She loves to joke around with him, as they are both cheerful and hyperactive. She never gets tired of his company.
She loves to tease him, and thinks of it as one of her hobbies to scare him by randomly glomping him, jumping up from behind him and screaming loudly, or injecting one of her ice spikes into his shoulder.
She sees him as a rolemodel, and as a beacon of light in the darkness that is her mind.
She completely trusts him with everything, and has told him many secrets that no other Scarf Hero knows.
However, she does keep her fate a secret from him, as she does to everyone else, as she doesn’t want to crush him.
Maxi isn’t much of a fighter, but Mineko is willing to help train him to become one, as she would really like to have him by her side on the battlefield.
Mineko has many nicknames for Maxi, but her favorite is “Muxboo”. But she also occasionally calls him “Dumbo”, “Muxi”, and “Mooxie”.
Mineko is of course, dreading the day when her fate finally arrives, as she knows that this event will scar Maxi, which makes it all the more hard for her as the anime goes on.
Originally, she was actually secretly scared to get any closer to him, as she knows that the closer they get, the more crushing her fate would be to the both of them when it finally arrives.
However, as much as she tried, she couldn't resist his presence, until they eventually did become a couple. And Mineko knows that she will stay with him until her last breath.
