Although from afar he seems to be a rough-house delinquent who hangs out with all the wrong people, Minato, is a kind and almost timid person who doesn't like to get the people he cares about into trouble. He is a good "house-wife" as his uncle says and is interested in astronomy, just like Hikaru. He lives with his uncle at the moment as his parents are recently divorced. His sister-in-law is a beautiful opera singer who believes that he is destined to become a professional pianist and apparently will go to drastic measures to see that accomplished. He carries around a bell that is seemingly very important to him, according to his uncle.
