His apparel consists of an orange t-shirt worn with a black spiral in the center over another, long-sleeved black shirt and striped pants or jeans.[3]

Personality

Kazuya is an indecisive man who likes to immerse himself in his superiority, so he sometimes lies around him without hesitation. His lies often get him into trouble, because he cannot muster the strength to tell the truth.[2][4][5]

He makes the lies go on to avoid the problem of having to explain everything. An example of this is his fake relationship with Chizuru Ichinose kept up to cheer his grandmother up.[2] On the other hand, he is aware he's getting himself into a lot of trouble in order to try to protect others' secrets and keep those close to him happy.

Despite all of this, he is generally a kind-hearted person and even shows great persistence at times and will go great lengths to help others.
