Kineshi Hairo (灰呂 杵志, はいろ きねし lit. Hairo Kineshi) is Kusuo's classmate and the class representative of class 2-∭. Due to his kindness and leadership, he's well-trusted by his classmates. Kineshi is one of the main characters of the series and was starred by Kasahara Hideyuki in the live action of the series.

Appearance

Hairo Kineshi Full Design
Kineshi sports a spiky maroon hair, weird eyebrows and usually has a band aid on top of nose. He usually rolls up the sleeves of uniform as he mostly does exercise on school corridors.

Personality

Kineshi can pretty much be defined by three characteristics: Being hot-blooded and energetic, his obsession with tennis, and having his pants always falling down. He is very reliable and is always looking after others or trying to do the right thing. There are times he gets too fired up but in the end, he’s still nice to everyone, even to Kusuo’s little group of outcast friends.

Kineshi is one of the more normal, reasonable characters in the manga, although he still has a few areas where he lacks in common sense like not being able to cook/failing to cook. However, even though he’s weird and fired up all the time Kineshi is still really popular with all the other kids in class. Kineshi was once thought to be gay by Aren and Shun,[2] although it's more likely that he doesn't have any thoughts about love.

His enthusiasm is also his greatest weakness and causes him to do unnecessary work. On one occasion, he damaged a shutter during a fire drill, which could have been avoided if he had listened to the announcements and on another he nearly caused the school too burn down by getting too many gas canisters.

History

Rivalry
Kineshi hangs out with Kusuo and his friends occasionally, but not as frequently as Riki, Shun, or Aren. At some point, he starts to one-sidedly consider Riki as his rival, thus constantly challenging him to all sorts of sporty challenges (Although Riki usually wins).

He recruits Kusuo and Riki for his tennis camp.

Quotes

  • (to his classmates) "Let's do it! Give it everything we've got! Acting like kids oss fine!! Let's regain the innocence of youth!! Com, let's seat it out together!!
  • (to Riki) "Nendou Riki, I've fallen for your principles in life."
  • (to a classmate) "Why are you giving up! You can do it. Cold is just a matter of mind!"
  • (New Years wish) "A formidable rival is also like a good friend. I hope I'll find someone like that."

Trivia

  • His name is a pun on the word Pyrokinesis.
  • Furigana of his name is written in katakana instead of hiragana.[3]
  • His guardian spirit is a highly enthusiastic tennis player.
  • His favorite sport is tennis.

  • His will power apparently allows him to melt snow.
  • He is unfazed by Kokomi's looks.
  • While brash and slightly unrealistic, he is not a complete idiot, as he managed to rank 6th in the exams.
