Detective Kazutoshi Gotou is a middle-aged clumsy workaholic detective. He is an action over words/thinking person. He knows Yakumo from a long time ago. He considers Yakumo like family and worries about him despite how he often gets angry at Yakumo for his contrary attitude. He asks for Yakumo's help whenever there is a paranormal involvement in the case he's investigating in. Despite Gotou's rough ways he is actually very kind, he sometimes gets too involved in a case and if it does not work out right he blames himself for it.
