  • Due to not being a non-swimmer like most other main and supporting characters, his motif on merchandise is an anchor.
  • People often make jokes out of his name because it sounds like the English "kiss me."[1][2]
  • Haruka Nanase doesn't particularly like Kisumi because, during junior high school, Makoto started hanging out with him, making Haruka 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 are 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, just tries to look good.
  • Young Kisumi's seiyuu, Rina Satoh, also voices Isuzu Mikoshiba.
  • Young Kisumi's English voice actor, Tia Ballard, also voices Chigusa Hanamura.
  • Those born under Gemini are expressive, quick-witted and sociable, but can also be nervous and restless. They like chatting with people and travel, and dislike routine and confinement. Those born on May 26 are always seeking someone to love and finding balance in life.  Traits are affected by the position of the moon and other planets at the time of birth.[4]
