Kiyonaga Narumiya (
Kiyonaga was the only child born to his mother and father. When he was younger, he visited his cousins, Tsubaki and Tsukasa Domyoji, at their home once. In middle school, Kiyonaga's parents divorced and remarried. Neither of his parents wanted him to live with them. Instead they supported him financially so he was able to live on his own.
For a number of years, Kiyonaga lived by himself in an apartment. One day, he was visited by Tama and his cousins. He was happy to see them again. Tama was relieved to see him doing well since she had "always worried" about him. Tsukasa interrupted the cheerful reunion by pulling on Kiyonaga's cheeks. He good-naturedly continued chatting with him until Tsubaki pulled Tsukasa away. Kiyonaga realized that he had mistaken him for someone else and confirmed that he did not know a girl named Makino. He then asked whether she was Tsukasa's girlfriend. Tsubaki responded that it was "one-sided" on his part.
Tsubaki described him as a "cheerful, cute, chubby boy" when he was a child. Kiyonaga carried his plumpness into his young adult life. He most noticeable traits were his round face and bright smile. Kiyonaga had short hair along with thin eyebrows. He was also seen wearing a simple, comfortable sweatshirt and pants.
Personality and traits
Kiyonaga was notable for his cheerfulness, a trait he retained from his childhood. In fact, he remained so, despite his parents abandoning him in a way. He was extremely kind and patient. This was exhibited when Tsukasa pulled on his cheeks. Kiyonaga did not react in a negative way, instead he simply carried on the conversation. Overall, he seemed to be leading a completely normal life.
