"To bring Souseki-sensei's teachings to the afterlife. I regard this as my duty."
A young man with a gentle demeanor and serene presence. His mannerisms are beautiful and he acts gentlemanly towards everyone, no matter who. He even intervenes when people are gossiping to preserve relationships. As a possessor of a keen aesthetic sense, he is knowledgeable about antiques and old books. He once had a tumultuous relationship with Kume Masao for an extended period of time, however their relations are currently reconciled. He is the type who somehow always ends up getting involved in difficult situations with others.
Natsume Souseki's eldest daughter, Fudeko, was Kume Masao's fiancee but ended up confessing her love for Matsuoka instead. Fudeko and Matsuoka married, which left Kume heartbroken. Kume subsequently wrote about and alluded to this heartbreak and "betrayal" from his best friend and ex-fiancee in many of his works.
