Appearance

Kazuya is a slim young man of average height whose appearance is rather dull, he lacks anything that makes one stand out, he has messy spiky light brown hair that falls over his face as well as lackluster brown eyes.

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

Personality

Kazuya is an indecisive man with a very low level of self-esteem. As a result, he end up compulsively lying to those around him without hesitation. His lies often get him into trouble, because he cannot muster the strength to tell the truth and he's very emotion-based, often acting irrationally and illogically.[2][4][5]

He generally 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 his indecisiveness, cowardice and tendency to lie, Kazuya is ultimately a very kind-hearted person and even shows great persistence at times and will go great lengths to help others in favour of himself.
