He does not listen to anyone other than Yuri, whom he has adoration for, and is antagonistic to almost everyone else. He has a rivalry between Otonashi and himself. He is a complete idiot whose weakness is education. He is not afraid to kill or harm anyone who gets in Yuri's way.
SpoilerHe appears to have a crush on Yuri because he is always trying to impress her, and even has a photograph of her to carry around.
