Appearance

Personality

He is polite, but shy. Even when not in the water, he is quiet and will not speak unless spoken to first. In front of his older brother Kisumi, however, this changes. Then, he is upbeat and affectionate, as evidenced when he greets his brother with a hug, bursting with energy.

History

At one point in the past, he and Kisumi were on a boat on the ocean. While Kisumi wasn't looking, Hayato fell overboard. The boy almost drowned at that time, leading to his fear of water.

Story

Relationships

  • Hayato and Kisumi share a close relationship. Hayato seems to depend and look up to Kisumi, who picks him up from his swimming lessons.
  • He forms a bond with Makoto Tachibana, who is his swimming instructor for a short period of time. Makoto pays special interest in Hayato because his fear of water reminds him of himself. Makoto teaches him to swim backstroke and Hayato seems deeply upset when Makoto has to leave.
