Tsukahara Kaname (塚原 要) is the Student Council President and Class Representative in his class. He is in the same class as Yuuki and Chizuru. He is the wealthiest among his friends as often pointed out by Yuuta and Yuuki. He has a short temper and often gets mad by his friends' foolish actions. Kaname was in love with his kindergarten teacher, Kaori-sensei, which the twins enjoy teasing him about and wanted to be like a guy named Kouichi, who later became his high school teacher, Azuma-sensei. He also seems to have a crush on his neighbor Hisako's elder sister Shizuna. Chizuru often calls him "Kanamecchi". Kaname has black hair and the only one who wears glasses among his friends. He has been friends with Yuuki, Yuuta and Shun since kindergarten. Kaname has a typical mother, who cares for him deeply and has no fear of showing that to Kaname or in-front of his friends.
