As Student Council President, Megumi cheerfully takes her duties very seriously. It becomes clear that she knows about her fellow students, such as Tomoko. In the manga she helps Tomoko after she injures her hand in Chapter 20 and then appears periodically to help Tomoko. She quietly reveals to Tomoko that Yoshida is a friend. After her graduation, Tomoko regrets her failure to get to know her when she had the chance.
Megumi Imae is very warm and kind to everyone including Tomoko. She is one of the few people who take notice of Tomoko and even cheers her on from a distance. During the culture festival, Megumi borrows a mascot costume for the sole purpose of hugging Tomoko in an effort to cheer her up, which was quite thoughtful of her.
Additionally, she is seen to be quite popular as when she leaves her third year at school many people are wishing her goodbye.
Based on her appearance in the anime and in color covers of volumes, Megumi has black hair worn long but gathered in the back with dark gray-green eyes. She stands a few inches taller than Tomoko.

Megumi Imae takes pity on Tomoko and often helps her out, which Tomoko doesn't ever realize until it's too late. Megumi has done a number of kind acts for Tomoko, including making sure Tomoko wasn't being bullied by Yoshida in Chapter 98. In that incident, Yoshida is inwardly offended that Tomoko avoids asking her for help. Tomoko fears Yoshida while perversely prodding her. When Megumi realizes that Yoshida is not bullying Tomoko, she goes out of her way to walk with them and let them air out their differences.
In a moment of maturity, Tomoko deeply regrets wasting the chance to get to really know her before she graduated.
In her final year, Tomoko recalls Megumi's kindness though she does not quite understand the reason for it. When she sees the first-year student Shizuku Hirasawa depressed after being humiliated in the school sports meet, Tomoko decides to at least act like Megumi and give Shizuku a hug.
- She has a resemblance to Sekai Saionji from School Days .
- The mascot costume she borrowed during the cultural festival is a possible reference to Chiba-kun, the Chiba Prefecture's mascot.
