Best described as the human equivalent of a parakeet: small, cute, colorful, hyperactive and regularly loud. A hyperactive kid who may also be somewhat In Touch with His Feminine Side. The Keet is often a male surrogate for female audiences.
Pops up here and there, especially in shoujo and shows with Yaoi Genre overtones; if he is the star, he is usually paired off in some form with his polar opposite. This character is born out of an enduring and surprisingly strict design plan for characters in Yaoi Genre manga commonly called the uke. A more manly version is the Boisterous Bruiser, who is often a seme in Yaoi Genre.
Often subject to a crossdressing escapade.
Keets are often also Genki Guys, as the cute and slightly feminine charm of a keet and the exuberant nature of a genki can go hand in hand quite well, however it's not strictly necessary for a character to be both.
