Himeko asks what does he think of Saaya, Bossun then answers saying she's just a friend. Himeko then tells Bossun that Saaya wanted to speak to him earlier, and asked her what do you think of Himeko, and Himeko asks him if her response was correct. In the bonus story Quest Dance, Bossun and company are recast as loser adventurers in the fantasy game world. Later, Momoka comes and asks for Himeko's help to be a contestant in a comedy show that Momoka is currently being the host assistant for, as she knew Himeko has great skill in tsukkomi.
But her opponent is a pro, can she beat him? Later, Switch and Bossun are evenly matched in their quiz challenge on a popular mecha anime show, Code A: Chian's Counterattack, so Switch invites Bossun to an otaku meet-up to see who is best between him and Switch.
Fortunately, their relationship gets better over time. He inherited his dad's hairstyle which contributes to their near identical looks. Being the leader of Sket Dan, he always makes it his goal to "save" others from their unhappiness and fight any injustice that they encounter. Averted with Bossun, to a T. In fact, if any of the Ship Tease in later chapters are to be taken to their logical conclusion, it's pretty clear that Bossun prefers blondes. He's just not fully aware of ityet.
Prone to very ugly and incomprehensible sobbing usually Played for Laughsdespite his attempts to mask them as Manly Tears. He means well but he's also well-known for his lack of delicacy, such as casually asking about Himeko's weight and commenting about Koma's "big" figure.
He wanted to be originally called "BOSS" but it didn't stick with his personality. He also gets the nickname "Milk" from Silk of the Pocket Dan, originating from a milk magic trick that became his gimmick while he temporarily learns magic from her. Being rather insensitive and socially awkward, he often gets beaten up by others including Himeko and Koma for saying the wrong things. Is the leader of the Sket Dan and very hands on. Like Father, Like Son: According to Akane, Yusuke looks and acts as his father, even having the same motivations about helping people first.
The reason why he was only adopted by Akane, is because not only Haru his biological mother didn't tell her that she was pregnant of twins, but she didn't want her to raise a couple of babies on her own as she was still young to follow her dreams as a fashion designer.
Love You and Everybody: In the final chapter, Himeko finally tells him she likes him and he tells her he likes her too This is what makes Himeko decide to give up on him. His first name "Yusuke" contains the kanji for "right", since his mother wished that he could always be together with his twin, like right and left. Even his friends can't manage his hair when combing or cutting it when it gets longer.
Bossun's "Concentration Mode" is usually heralded by dramatic techno music and swirly space imagery, since a minute-long shot of Bossun sitting very still while wearing goggles would admittedly be boring.
He screams "Concentration Mode" before putting his thoughts and details he perceived with attention, because he wanted to have a cool catchphrase as well. He wears a very distinctive red horned hat that Himeko gave to him after the events of "Ogress". It is the same hat that their childhood's hero, Poppman, uses. Bossun doesn't bother with the blazer nor tie, wears shorts instead of pants even in winterrolls up the sleeves of his shirt over another shirt, wears sandals instead of shoes, and wears goggles and the red Poppman hat.
When it does get cold, he wears a hoodie. Many characters, such as Agata, point him out that he shares some similarities with Tsubaki. Then it's revealed that they're twins, and everything makes sense to him.
He self-admits that he couldn't notice if someone falls in love with him, and this is evident in his lack of awareness for Saaya and Himeko's feelings.
Not even when Himeko outright confesses to him he gets it right! Only Known by Their Nickname: He's mostly referred to as "Bossun" instead of "Yusuke" or "Fujisaki". Exceptions include his family obviously and a few school rivals like Agata and Tsubaki even after The RevealTsubaki still goes by Last-Name Basis with him until they finally upgrade to First-Name Basis to show they've gotten closer as brothers.
Older Than They Look: His shorts, red hat and his cheery personality makes him look more like a year-old than a And he's even supposed to be Tsubaki's older twin.
The latter, at least initially, constantly tries to sabotage the Sket Dan for their perceived uselessness, while Bossun would constantly try to outdo him, and by extension the Student Council, to prove them wrong.
Doubles as Sibling Rivalry when they are revealed to be twins. She Is Not My Girlfriend: Everyone including their friends think he has something else with her. And while they are not even dating, all agree that they act Like an Old Married Couple.
Bossun and Tsubaki may be twins but they can not be more different. Bossun is cheerful, laid-back and might act irresponsible sometimes but can be really mature when the time calls for it, while Tsubaki is strict, serious and responsible but he has a childish and cry-baby side too. Bossun is Book Dumb but has lots of talents outside the academic such as drawing, while Tsubaki is a good student but has no artistic sense to save his life.
However, Bossun is later revealed to actually be Brilliant, but Lazyas in he's both smart and artistic, so Tsubaki's really got the short end of the stick on this one. Smarter Than You Look: Agata remarks him that he is quite pretty clever though it doesn't necessarily shows up normally. Is often the only one with common sense among whichever group he's with and has to be the one to respond to the others' nonsensical actions such as the time he gets turned into a kid and has to deal with Himeko and Switch making fun of the situation.
However, most of the time he acts as the Boke to Himeko's Straight Man. He looks exactly like his dad, which is lampshaded.
He becomes a stickman for a chapter after losing the quiz based on the second character popularity contest. Only Tsubaki finds his situation too abnormal. He and Himeko are prone to arguing which often leads to Himeko giving him a good smackbut they are quite close and understand each other very well. In addition to being a talented artist, impressionist, and savant at riddles, Bossun has "the power of incredible concentration".

Although it isn't a particularly heroic skill Kenta Shinohara's Author Avatar lampshades this when Bossun tries to demonstrate this as an idea for his manga and the former is left unimpressedhis "Concentration Mode" is actually extremely helpfulespecially in a school environment; among others, it grants Bossun near photographic memory, extremely fast calculations, and ability to create an elaborate plan in minutes. He and Agata see each other as rivals in terms of intelligence and respect each other as such.

She wasn't known as "Onihime" for nothing! She is very strong when the moment calls it, especially when she gets embarrassed by Bossun. Actually a wrestling armbrand, her collar was a gift from Bossun. Himeko tends to melt down at the sight of small and cute things, up until the point where aforementioned small thing acts like a complete jerk.

When she gets really angry, it's better to be miles away from her. She said to her friend Arisa that she wanted to protect her when she thought she was being bullied. Unfortunately, Arisa took that as Himeko calling her weak and things didn't end well. She dyed her hair blonde when she was in middle school to help to spread the name of the delinquent "Onihime". In the present day, she probably keeps that look out of habit. Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: A good deal of her storyline is her worrying about her future.
Abuse, Female on Male: Bossun ends up experiencing a world of pain whenever he gets on Himeko's nerves. So much, that EVEN he gets both hands broken.

They have been referred as: At first, Himeko gets her hair longer and dyes it as blond to spread the name of the "legendary delinquent Onihime".

And when it was the moment, Bossun tells her that he finally decided to go to the same University as her, making her to postpone the confession She wasn't originally a yanki, but after the things around Arisa went bad, she got a reputation.
Her blonde bleached hair didn't help either, especially during middle school. Himeko, being from Osaka, often slips her accent in her speech and writing. However, she uses "atashi" rather than "uchi". Her backstory reveals she became a loner after becoming a delinquent and tried very hard to keep it that way upon entering Kaimei Academy before she gave in to Bossun and Captain's friendship.
The more emotional member of the Sket Dan trio. Plays this role to Bossun's Kirk and Switch's Spock. She's the first member recruited in the Sket Dan, the vice president and is far more likely to get involved with Bossun's antics than Switch would be. Himeko has her ribbon undone, avoids the blazer, and wears a choker and heels. She wears a pink cardigan during the colder weather.
While not that much obvious as Bossun, it looks like everyone in Kaimei Academy suspects that there is too much to their friendship than just Vitriolic Best Budsexcept her, of course. Heck, even Switch supports them!
Himeko refers to Bossun as "the number one in Japan when it comes in finding a way of breaking out of a warehouse with long arms" during the first part of "Costume Break".
Her former delinquent nickname was "Onihime" literally "Demon Princess". Often cries out Bossun's name whenever he experiences a world of hurt. She shares her last name with another former delinquent who wanted to reform his life in wanting to help people. Adding some other points, Himeko also wants to pursue a teacher career. She amplifies her role as the tsukkomi Up to Eleven. And it's Serious Business. Her cooking ability is good, shown as being a participant in the first challenge of Gachinko Vivage Battle Arc: Much to her dismiss, Switch even teases her calling her as mom, at some moments when they end up acting as children and she has to keep them on track.
She recognizes that her artistic talents aren't as good as Bossun's, but they aren't much better than Roman's. Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She notoriously evolves her tomboy personality when she starts being involved with the Sket Dan at the time, foe example wearing more skirts and often leaving her field hockey cane aside. Himeko loves Pelollipop Candy, a lollipop candy brand similar to Chupa Chups that has a gallery of weird flavors such as: Sea Cucumber, Soft-Roe, and Liver.
Anyone else who eats them usually vomits. She even gets to become their spokesperson for a commercial. No, she doesn't like Bossun that way, he's only a good friend she's indebted to, don't pay attention to all the blushing or the way she freaks out when someone suggests there's something more between them.
Turn the Other Cheek: She forgives Arisa for having betrayed her when they meet after years of certain events that triggered her 'Onihime' persona to surface.
She and Bossun are prone to arguing which often leads to Himeko giving him a good smackbut they are quite close and understand each other very well. Her ability to use a Field Hockey Cane as a weapon shows her rough side and former delinquent background. Switch appears to be the most serious of the group, but his fooling around says otherwise. Switch is tech-savvy to an extreme: Mysteriously, he prefers not to speak, instead communicating via a text-to-speech synthesizer in his laptop.
Perhaps there is a hidden side to this eccentric young man He is the Scully to Reiko Yuuki's Mulder. He believes that there are no supernatural beings, and thus, he holds his argument on the truth proven by science.
Shown to have zero accuracy when he has a gun fight against Daisy in the Gachinko Vivage Battle and fails to hit most of his bullets on her. When the rest of the Sket Dan got sick, Switch had to be pulled out from his sidelines comfort zone, and is asked by the Principal to take care of his grandson while also having to do other clients' tasks with help of his gadgets.
A minor one, but Switch hates gaps in his data. Learning facts he didn't already know about people upsets him. Is considered to be good-looking with and without his glasseslampshaded when Himeko gets him to be Prince Charming instead of Bossun for the Snow White play and when he along with other attractive male students are coined the Kaimei 5 parodying the handsome F4 group from Hana Yori Dango.
Despite being a consummate weird otaku, he is considered to be pretty handsome and popular. He had a crush on his childhood friend, Sawa, and she liked him back. Unfortunately, he didn't know this until the day she moved away after his brother was killed. He usually has a remarkably impractical invention behind the sleeves, if necessary. Switch is not what he looks like. That nickname was his brother's, Masafumi.
Due to his jealousy towards him, he unknowing it at the moment led Sawa's stalker to him and Sawa, and ultimately killed him. The triggered guilt trip made Kazuyoshi to be a hikikomori and is the main reason he refuses to speak up until the present. Not long after, he became the moderator of "Death Fights", just to bring justice to Masafumi, revealing purposely that he was responsible of all of it. Bossun saved him and helped him to make the first step out of the situation and out of his home.
He communicates via text-to-speech with a laptop. The reason he still refuses to speak is because of the guilt over his brother's death and the fact that he still doesn't move on from this event. He eventually does start speaking again. Switch's inventions are either useful or Awesome, but Impractical.
There are some chapters that show the effectiveness of those if they are combined together, one in which Bossun creatively combined some of them to rescue a boy who is falling from a building, and another where it proves that Switch can be a Badass Bookworm if neither Himeko nor Bossun are with him all the time.
Tragically deconstructed, towards his little brother, Masafumi. He was jealous of his intellect and friendship with Sawa, and sadly, because of this huge misunderstanding of it being thought as something more than Like Brother and Sisterit led to his killing.
He was a shut in for months before joining the Sket Dan. At one point, the ever so stoic Switch calls Yagi "expressionless", and gets called out by his peers for it. He blames himself of Masafumi's death since it was his offhand comment that drove the killer to attack him.
Switch isn't usually the source of peoples' problems, but it seems like half the time he only gets involved with helping people because their predicaments are a source of great entertainment.
Which to be fair, they are. He originally had longer hair and differently combed bangs, but he decided to change it. His current haircut is the only reminder and memory he has left of Masafumi's image on himself. The default voice on his laptop often is toned to exaggerate when the moment calls it. He isn't the first person to go by Switch. It originally was Masafumi's nickname, and he took it for himself after he died. Literally Loving Thy Neighbor: He had a crush on his next door neighbor Sawa, but she eventually moved away after his brother was killed.
In his backstory it's explained that Switch didn't have any friends when he was a shut-in although it was a known fact that he would "run away" when someone got into contact with him about school. However, it was Bossun who lent him a hand at first and never gave up to help him. After the "Death Fight" incident, he accepted Bossun's proposal to go to school again.
After that, he slowly became friends with him and Himeko. He represents the "science" side to Reiko's "supernatural". They always discuss from the very little detail, to just annoy each other. The ending of the series implies he might end up in a relationship with Momoka. As a punishment, he wanted to be the image of his brother at the start. He knows it is nonsense to become a Replacement Goldfish for him, but he still wants to hold on Masafumi's memory, if it's only for a little longer.
Switch is very athletic when the situation calls for it especially when playing Genesisbut he prefers to stand in the sidelines. This mostly annoys both Himeko and Bossun sometimes, because he is practically useless in certain situations just as when it is rainingand also just because he relies on them as the most assertive action guys. Switch avoids the blazer and tie, and wears a green jumper or vest. He averted this when he first started going to Kaimei however, wearing the proper uniform before his brother's death.
Kazuyoshi prefers to be called "Switch" instead of being called by his given name.
