Kareha Banouin[]

Retsumi cares deeply for Kareha Banouin. Throughout their time together, despite being on opposing sides of a nonlethal war, Kareha is evidently on her mind. Ever since Retsumi first defeated Kareha in battle and reignited her will to live as well as recovered her sense of self, Retsumi and Kareha both agreed upon continuing their battles after Retsumi asked what made Kareha feel alive. Despite having to keep their friendship a secret in order to preserve the realism of the mock battle, Retsumi misses Kareha and pines over her, wanting to speak to her again. It is also revealed that Retsumi views Kareha as a wonderful leader, and is happy and proud when reflecting upon her. She noted that Kareha was lonely, and wished to fill up that loneliness, as she enjoyed speaking to her, competing against her and understanding her. When in battle against Kareha, Retsumi is shown to be ecstatic and enjoys their time spent together. Furthermore, when with Kareha after the war ends, she is very affectionate with her, and easily embarrassed by Kareha's comments and occasional innuendo.

During their date together, Retsumi felt cozy and at peace with Kareha. However, as Kareha's time drew to an end, Retsumi confesses her love to her. She stated that she wanted to keep playing with Kareha, spending time together and having fun, and that she loves Kareha.

After Kareha's death, Retsumi is evidently in grief. Despite this, she endeavors to keep Kareha's memory alive and with her forever.

Hibiki Higoromo[]

Retsumi values Hibiki's input in the mock war, and had a habit of promoting Hibiki repeatedly over small endeavors. She considers Hibiki a valuable addition to her army, and appreciates her help with matters of the heart, as shown when Hibiki assisted her in getting ready for their date. The two of them appear to get along well, with both of them bonding over their shared experiences of surviving the process of becoming Empties.
