So Tomori isn’t your usual anime girl with headphones (well, earphones really) as they are not a permanent part of her look, but she deserves a special mention as her music player and the post-rock band Zhiend are so important to her. She can often be found alone listening to it, and even gives her player to Yuu as a present – a seemingly unimportant moment – but used as foreshadowing for their budding relationship. Zhiend is also used as a point of stark contrast to the other music group mentioned in Charlotte – How-Low-Hello – whose music is often showcased in a music video watched by several people. On the other hand, Zhiend conjures personal memories and images for the listener while playing only for them in the headphones. For more on Zhiend see this great article
