  • People often make jokes out of his name because it sounds like the English "kiss me."[1][2]
  • Haruka doesn't particularly like Kisumi for the reason being that during junior high school, Makoto started hanging out with him too, making him jealous.
  • His uncle, Katsumi Shigino, runs a small real estate business where Kisumi often assists.
  • Whenever Katsumi came to visit Kisumi, he would say "Kiss me! Catch me!".[3]
  • He's kept in touch with Asahi Shiina since Iwatobi Junior High School and they're still good friends.
  • Kisumi admitted to Haruka in junior high school that he admires the “natural Asahi” who is free, straightforward and always cheerful while he himself is just trying to look good.
  • Young Kisumi's seiyuu, Rina Satoh, also provides the voice for Isuzu Mikoshiba.
  • Young Kisumi's voice actor in the English dub, Tia Ballard, also provides the voice for Chigusa Hanamura.
  • Due to not being a swimmer like most other main and supporting characters, in place of a motif animal on merchandise Kisumi is represented by an anchor symbol instead.
