Keiichiro Minase


Plot Summary: The MC finds herself in the care of Keiichiro and is scared at first, but soon she begins to see Keiichiro’s serious manner and kindness beyond his intimidating appearance. However, even if she is beginning to have feelings for him it seems like Keiichiro might already have a girlfriend

What I think of him: Keiichiro is a (young) man who takes things very seriously, especially regarding things told to him by people he cares for. He might look like a delinquent, but he’s actually. He’s very straightforward and doesn’t really think about lying and he tends to take things at face value. He knows he’s not the most experienced or knowledgable person out there but he’s one of the few people in the universe that actually finds his high school textbook interesting. He never starts a fight unprovoked, but he sure can put an end to them, even if he usually comes out bruised. He sort of feels like the dad of the dorm and the others listen to him on the occassion that he does say something. Voltage’s typing of him as “awkward” and “manly” suits him perfectly

Nickname: Kei

Charm point: His straightforward purity

Quote: “I kind of lose myself when I’m with you. My heart starts beating like crazy and I can’t calm down.”

Cuddle, kiss, or push down: Ride behind him on his motorbike on the way to visit Toshirou

Would have eloped with: No one

Favorite moments: 

  • The second time Keiichiro walks out in a bathtowel and ends up apologizing with an iced coffee
  • The MC meeting Toshirou and the conversation about her name
  • Going to the movies
  • The MC braving the storm alone to rescue Toshirou
  • Everyone waiting at the dorm for the MC and Keiichiro to come back in the end

Worst moments: 

  • The guy rescuing a cat cliche… And they even included rain later on
  • The MC begins repeating the phrase “that’s just like Kei” so frequently pretty early in the route even when she’s only beginning to understand him
  • The MC’s misunderstanding… raaagherdljkfluffle

Worth the price of admission?: I think Keiichiro is super cute, he’s very close to what I image a young Hiroshi Kirisawa must have been like. The route itself is pretty standard (and at several moments cliche) shoujo manga fare, but I think if you go in with that as your expectation, you will be pleased with what comes of it

After the main route (POSSIBLE SPOILERS): 

  • Epilogue: Keiichiro sees the MC naked after she passes out in the bath and suddenly he seems to be too busy to spend much time with her. This is a pretty sweet epilogue with a couple of different things happening. The climax is pretty dramatic and Keiichiro is such a sweetie
  • Completion Bonus: Akira tells Keiichiro that he’s going to be dumped if he doesn’t change himself according to what women like, and Keiichiro seems like he’s taking that advice to heart. Keiichiro is adorable, and I can’t even…
