HORIKITA Maki-chan acted as a tetsu-musume, a girl who likes railroads, in her high school days, though she has poor knowledge about railroads.

When Producer of Marguerite Site created HORIKITA Maki Usagi, with her origin in HORIKITA Maki-chan in 2007, he set HORIKITA Maki Usagi as a only female member of railroad club of her university for this reason.

However, he changed the setting of HORIKITA Maki Usagi to a member of tennis club of women students after less than one year since he set HORIKITA Maki Usagi as his original featured character, because HORIKITA Maki-chan did not seem to be otaku, a nerd at all.

  • Here in Japan, rail hobbies are regarded as nerd's hobbies.
