The male protagonist of the series. He spent most of his childhood living in Onomichi by himself because of his mother’s death and his father’s work. He is very self-sufficient and able to do house work, make various repairs, budget money, and especially cook. Even though he is described as plain-looking - his name is routinely punned Tada-no-Mugi "common Mugi" (or "common wheat") - he has a few girls that are attracted to him. Most of the time he is unaware of their feelings. He has become very devoted to Yuu, who he fell in love with at first sight, but he doesn’t tell her out of fear of their relationship crumbling and her not having anywhere to live. Once Yuu’s circumstances changed, he has been trying to confess to her, but is often hindered by his own indecisiveness or being interrupted. He is prone to be in compromising situations with the female characters or having sexual fantasies about Yuu.
