Takeo’s next door neighbor, childhood friend, and classmate, who he calls “Suna” for short. Compared to Takeo’s boisterous personality, Makoto is level-headed, studious, and rational, though he will occasionally burst into stifled laughter upon witnessing Takeo’s unique behavior. Because Makoto is so handsome, all of the girls Takeo liked ended up falling in love with Makoto instead. Despite his endless stream of admirers, Makoto remains single, as he rejected every girl that’s confessed to him because of their insulting comments they made about Takeo. Although not nearly as outgoing as Takeo, he nevertheless values his friendship, noting that his life would be “boring” if Takeo were not around. Makoto is always watching out for Takeo and is willing to sacrifice his own happiness for his friend.
Makoto’s older sister and a college student. Takeo mentions that she, like her brother, is a great and kindhearted person. She has had a secret crush on Takeo ever since he compared her to a flower when they were children. Only her brother and her colleague Oda know about her feelings for Takeo.
Takeo’s mother, who always works hard for her family. Takeo is extremely protective of her, though she insists he worries for no reason as she was once an amateur wrestler and when she was giving birth to Takeo she actually helped carry another woman into the maternity room when she went into labour first.
Takeo’s father, who has a rather handsome appearance. He fell in love with Takeo’s mother when he saw her put herself in harm’s way to protect someone else and decided he wanted to be the one to protect her.
