  • Bookworm: The heroine first encounters him in the library.
  • Bothering by the Book: Should the heroine be bothered by a pushy salesman while on a date with Sakuya, he'll start asking a lot of questions about the product.

  • Foil: To Kazuma Suzuka. Sakuya is a calm bookworm, and a model student who is really bad at sports. On the other hand, Kazuma is a hot-blooded sportsman and not good when it comes to his studies. They have similar CGs in terms of what they involve — meeting them, visiting their house, revealing their fears, an event requires a previous event to be seen , dates during the spring having them protect the heroine from someone else, dates during summer involving with water and dates during autumn taking place at Habataki Mountain area — and their confessions contain something special. And the PS2 version had them have the same number of CGs, which was altered due to image-merging in the DS version.

  • Last-Name Basis: In the PS2 version, when he is at Friendly and below stage, he calls the heroine by her last name, using '-san' as the honorific.

  • Meddling Parents: His father is against his wish of wanting to become a botanist after graduating.

  • Missing Mom: His mother doesn't live with him and his father.
  • Nice Guy: Absolutely sweet and polite. He doesn't like violence or raising his voice, but is willing to get out of his comfort zone to protect the heroine. Even if he can't handle it very well.
  • No-Sell: His attack in the Pillow Fight minigame, Nature Guard. It causes a little sprout to pop out of his head, leaving him temporarily immune to getting hit by pillows.

  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Is one of the more mature guys in the game. At the amusement park, unlike Shiki's fondness of the merry-go-round, Sakuya remains pretty neutral about it, while most guys are bored or embarrassed when riding it.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: A turquoise-like shade.

Shiki tends to take quite some time to warm up to the heroine, and tends to be late for dates by at least an hour. However, should the player stick with him and prove to Shiki that the heroine appreciates his flamboyance and his love for art, he'll let her in on his vulnerable side.

  • The Dandy: Has a thing for fancy clothing, art, and beauty, in general.

  • Large Ham: Very flamboyant in his mannerism and speech.

Kazuma comes off as quite rude to the heroine at first, taking a bit to get closer to a romantic relationship. He'll see his flaws and even become attached to and very protective of the heroine.

  • The Ace: At least when it comes to basketball. According to RADIO DRAMA Vol.02, he is good enough to catch the attention from Japanese basketball league.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: The Girl's Side Days 2013 event changed him into being more readily attractive when compared to the original game.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: An In-Universe example if the heroine first meets him at the basketball club's summer camp. Kazuma scolds the heroine because she is being spaced-out distracting the others then tells her to sit under a tree because he knows beforehand that she's feeling sick. After they introduce themselves and he blushes then run off after she thanks him, the heroine wondered whether he's kind or mean.

  • Big "YES!": Shouts a big "YATTAAAA!" in his normal and best friend ending, should the heroine accept his confession.
  • Blue with Shock: His chibi-form is blue with fear in the face in the haunted house or when Tamami is using her attack in the Pillow Fight minigame.

And even his attitude towards the heroine changes, starting off as blunt and almost rude, before becoming more friendly. And eventually treats her as a 'woman' he is in love with, instead of just another girl he knows from school. Compare his behavior at lower and higher affection and the differences are staggering.

  • Foil
    • To Sakuya Morimura. Kazuma is a hot-blooded sportsman and bad at his studies, while Sakuya is not very good at sports, but great at academics. The two share similar CGs — meeting them, visiting their house, revealing their fear, an event acts as a continuation of a previous event, a spring date involves protecting the heroine, a summer date involves water and an autumn date takes place at Habataki Mountain area — and have something special occur in their confessions. They also had the same number of CGs, but this was altered for the DS version because of image-merging.
    • To Madoka Kijyou. Both are poor at academic studies and have similar parameter requirements. On the other hand, Kazuma takes quite a while to be friends with the heroine but quick to fall in love with her and is pretty clumsy about romantic matters, while Madoka is quick to become the heroine's friend but slow to see her as a potential girlfriend and is good at romantic stuffs. They also reacted in different ways to the heroine's grades, with Kazuma is impressed if the heroine ranked high in exams, while Madoka is unimpressed by her efforts.
    • To Wataru Hibiya. Both are poor students in their academics and passionate about their respective sports club. They also each have a CG that involves their fears.

  • He Is All Grown Up: Sports a much more mature look in the Girl's Side Days 2013 event.
  • Height Angst: His third year information by Tsukushi claims Kazuma seems worried about his height being considered too short for basketball. He's the tallest of the shortest potential boyfriends in his third year, with Sakuya Morimura and Wataru Hibiya being shorter than him.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Madoka Kijyou. They take remedial lessons together, and tend to appear together in supplementary art.
  • Hidden Depths

    • Walking home with him near graduation can lead to Kazuma revealing that he likes school and feels sad because he won't be able to see his friends as much as before.
    • Most of the White Day and birthday gifts from the guys have to do with their hobbies, but Kazuma's gifts seem very feminine and don't match his hobbies at all. They seem more matching to the heroine, implying that Kazuma was taking her hobbies into consideration.
    • During summer, should the player date Kazuma at the forest park a third time, there's a special response that has Kazuma reveal he values strong family relationship. And he can be quite romantic at times, when looking at his responses at the night parade or planetarium.

  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others
    • In the DS version, most of the guys have a generic "[Guy's Nickname] walked/drove me home" after a date, but Kazuma gets a "Teehee... [Kazuma's Nickname] walked me home".
    • Also in the DS version, in the original Japanese text, most characters have a generic "It was fun going home with [Character's Nickname]." Note  after school, but Kazuma get a "I went home with [Kazuma's Nickname]. It was fun." Note . Fan translators decided to stick with the generic version.

  • Performance Anxiety: Before the school-play, the heroine asks if Kazuma is nervous, because she notices that his legs are trembling, but he denies it.
