Kei is one of the main protagonists in the series. He is ranked 1st
in the entire school which is why he has the habit of calling Hikari
"Miss Rank 2". He is the son of the CEO of Takishima Corporation, making him next in line for the company. He is Hikari Hanazono's undefeated rival. Kei became Hikari's boyfriend and they engaged which makes Hikari his fiancee.
As Kei is in the S.A he wears the standard S.A uniform: a white blazer over a pale green polo shirt with a dark colored tie and a pair of dark blue pants. Whenever he is challenged to a physical contest by Hikari he usually changes to a plain blue t-shirt and some white pants.
His outfits change whenever the S.A go on their outings.
In short, Kei is accurately described as perfect. Ranked first in school, Kei is good at everything and has the ability to get things right the first time he does it. He maintains a stoic and calm facade most of the time, and often deals with his problems calmly. He prefers working alone, since he thinks that is the best way - until Hikari shows him how much fun it can be to work with others.
Kei is in love with Hikari, a fact that he does not deny, and has loved her since they were children. His cold and stoic facade breaks whenever things involve Hikari and can bring intense anxiety out of him. It always bothers him whenever Hikari pushes herself too much or causes trouble, but her strong will and determination are some of the few reasons he admires and respects her. However, nonetheless, he enjoys Hikari's company very much. He usually shows a different side of him whenever she is involved, a more caring side than the one he usually shows to others. Seeing as he is in love with Hikari, he easily gets jealous whenever guys try to flirt with her. Though everyone else knows he's in love with her, he does not confess his love because he knows Hikari will misinterpret it, thinking he loves her as a friend. Even with his constant displays of affection towards her, Hikari is too dense to realize what he feels.
Kei is also very professional. He often works hard on things related to his soon-to-be company and he sometimes accompanies his father to different countries whenever he is told that his father is not taken seriously and he has to make the negotiation. His schedule is often very stressful that he sometimes does not get too much sleep, causing his younger brother Sui to worry about him. However, he tries to push his work aside whenever Hikari needs him or he's won a bet that states she has to spend the day with him.
Yahiro is another one of Kei's childhood friends. Akira,Yahiro, and Kei were all childhood friends when they were young because of their parents' jobs, although Yahiro wasn't as close to Kei as he was with Akira. Yahiro was like a prince, always bossing Akira around and making tea for him everyday. Soon, Yahiro became a bully to protect Akira because other kids would just hang out with her because she's rich and they get presents when they go to her house, so Yahiro would threaten those kids to stay away from Akira or his father would take away their parent's jobs. Yahiro then develops a crush on Akira.
Aoi admires Kei although he is 3 years younger than him. Kei and Aoi both have photographic memories and are "different" from others. At first, Aoi disliked his talent, but Kei told him they were "special" and since they are alike, Aoi looks up to him and call him "Master Kei." He and Hikari are also in the After-School Takishima Club.
Kei has a very bad relationship with his younger brother because Sui thinks he's a robot under human flesh. He feels inferior to Kei who is 'perfect'. But, thanks to Hikari, their relationship got better. They have a 'brother complex'.
He is often dragged by his father along to work, usually foreign business meetings. It is revealed in the manga that he has a father complex and that he learned most of his skills from Satoru.
Midori is Kei and Sui's mother. Both of them inherited their looks from her, so they have a strong resemblance to her. She longs for the day when Kei will ask her to buy something for him. They aren't really that close since Midori is always working overseas.
