!Hinata Mutou

One of the most popular guys in school who is the first to notice Hikage and reveals that he's been watching her all this time.

Hinata's best friend and an equally popular guy in school. Teru is much more easygoing than Hinata, but he tries to help Hikage, albeit in a very blunt manner.

* TroubledButCute: Despite his constantly cheerful demeanour as a SchoolIdol, he has a troubled home life (his parents are divorced, and they blamed him for their broken relationship).
* {{Tsundere}}: Often goes back and forth between helping Hikage and acting like a jerk to her. He was also a bit of one towards Hinata when they were children, insulting him and then complimenting him afterwards.
