Name: Kojima, Rui
Birthday: 3rd of September
Height: 183 cm
Home or boarding: boarding school
Club: badminton (president)
Also part of the student council but rarely goes to the meetings and never really organises things.
While he and Yuuta were roommates for the first month or so, a new side of Rui's personality that Yuuta hadn't seen before resulted in much confusion, and they are no longer roommates. Even though seeing a more angry side of Rui was new to Yuuta, Rui also saw a side of Yuuta that had been hidden from him for a long while-- his possessiveness. This made Rui slightly wary of Yuuta, and Yuuta was now afraid of Rui. While they have seemingly made up, their relationship isn't as close as it was, and while Rui would like it to be, he is afraid of hurting Yuuta again, and thus keeps his distance. Even though he has no longer got a roommate, he is always with Banri, and thus is never lonely.
Rui is a bit short tempered, but they're always only short out-bursts; however, this is usually because he's quite out spoken and if he sees something wrong, he'll face it head on. Despite being a little bit grumpy, he is actually very sensitive; he can tell when people are down and upset, and he'll try to cheer them up in his own weird, subtle way. He's blunt, so he'll only say things that he really feels, although if he knows it'll upset the person too much, he won't say anything at all. He adores Yuuta and likes to spoil him, even though he'll hardly tell him how he feels and all that, since he hates talking about his own feelings towards others, thinking it makes him look less manly. Because of this, however, his smiles will always be sincere. He goes for a morning jog and an evening jog around the school's oval every day, and is very serious when it comes to badminton. It's not just his brother who he'll protect, he'll protect anyone if he sees an unfair point of view. He has only ever been in a physical fight with someone once, when they were really bullying his brother for far too long. He got into trouble with the school, but his parents pretty much fangirled about it and called him a "hero". He has almost been in another one protecting his friend.
On his days off, he uses his time to play
games on his ps3 while eating tonnes of sweets, as well as reading... ecchi books, and exercising to maintain his weight. He hates studying, and doesn't really do it, although he still usually passes his tests, saying he just uses his own logic. However now, he gets a lot of help from Banri, and his grades are improving. He is now aiming to go to university, whereas before he really didn't care where he ended up. He will help people if they're in need, but he'll try to act like he has no choice and say things like "It can't be helped/ shouganai,sa". At his job, he acts very helpful and sickly sweet, it's a huge difference from how he actually acts. He's forced to act like that by his manager.
He literally finds it hard to feel things; he has become used to his strategy of using logic as a way to almost escape true feelings, and so now has trouble when feeling things like jealousy, etc, since it doesn't happen much, although it is starting to now that he is making new relationships. He should be a housemaid, considering he is a good cook, nags Yuuta to study more, and when it comes to cleaning he has to clean everything down to the last detail. He can't control himself if he sees something out of place, or an odd sock, for example. It's almost like.. he finds joy in cleaning. That's how sad he is.
Rui is from the small city of Takayama, not too far from hida-furukawa itself. He grew up with his parents and his little brother, Yuuta. His parents were both from the city of Gifu, and were college sweethearts. As soon as they were engaged they decided to move to Takayama and open their own traditional hand made jewellery store. His mother and father studied different mediums of art, so they make the jewellery themselves. Not long after Rui was popped out. When his mum was pregnant with Yuuta, he was told that she'd eaten a balloon because her stomach was rather big, and he kinda... Freaked out. He was 2 tho, so. Rui's parents are always showing off their love, and are always cuddling and saying mushy things like "that's because I love you!". He's extremely embarrassed of his family and often calls them a family of idiots.
He began cooking for the family everyday when he was in his first year of middle school, upset with the fact that their mother really couldn't cook and when their dad did, he took hours and hours just to cook something simple like an omelet. Now whenever he's over there they depend on him to do all the chores.
