"If it's only this much, I can still take care of the pupils."
One of the two novelists who ushered in what is known as the Kouro era. Being an obliging person, he is good-natured and hardly perturbed by anything, and that seems to have stemmed from his pride in bringing up a large number of pupils. Currently, he is watching warmly over Izumi Kyouka and Tokuda Shuusei. Although he is that kind of person, with regards to food he has just one thing to say, which is that he will absolutely not eat anything that is not to his tastes. He has an unexpectedly mischievous side.
