Takezo Kurata

  • Growing up, Takeru had a close bond with his older brother and always admired him. After passing the entrance exam to Meiryou High and sharing the news to Takezo, who also originally planned to get into Meiryou but failed the entrance exam, Takezo's reaction was not what Takeru expected. Taking Takezo's reaction as a dismissal, Takeru started to have a hostile attitude towards his brother. He disliked Takezo's involvement in a koto club. However, upon learning his brother's dedication to it, Takeru accepted it and seems to be happy for his brother.
