We were able to create an estimated height value for all the characters by doing two things. First is that we observed the height difference between Sekine and a Japanese classroom door by watching this 4-nin wa Sorezore Uso wo Tsuku Anime Clip on Youtube. And then second is that, after we found out Sekine’s height, we used an image which allowed us to observe the height difference between her and the three other characters.
If you look at the video frame at the time frame [0:02] in the video, we can see Sekine walking in a school hallway with several doors lined up on the right side of the panel. Although this might vary especially in modern Japanese schools, the maximum height of that door should not exceed 72 inches. This is because 72 inches is the traditional door height in Japan, and the door’s small appearance further makes this theory plausible.
If we scale Sekine next to the door, she would take up 75% of the door’s maximum height; this means that she has a height of around 54 inches (137cm).
Now that we have Sekine’s approximate height value, we can now scale all the other characters next to Sekine so that we can figure out their heights. To do this, we will use Hikaku Sitatter Height Comparison Chart Tool to recreate the same height difference shown in the image below. The image was taken from Anime Trending.
After putting the input into the height chart tool, we were able to come up with the following conclusions:
- Rikka is around 118cm.
- Chiyo should be around 145cm.
- Tsubasa should be somewhere around 147cm, making her the tallest among the group.
