"How about a game of Shogi?"

0 · 437 views · located in Yousaka High School

a character in “My Letter”, as played by Kuukakulily


Katsuyo Naganishi


Name:Katsuyo Naganishi
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Height: 5'9" (181 cm)
Weight: 145 lbs (66 kgs)
Skin Color: Slight tan



Personality: Katusyo is a fiercely competitive person who never really takes no for an answer. He is always up for a challenge, but he gets bored quickly with certain things and often has a divided attention span. The only thing he can really focus on is Shogi in which he is an exceptional player and ranked nationally. His default personality is laidback and cool, but when something catches his interest, he becomes excitable and relentless in the pursuit of it.

He is good-natured at his core, but he is not above using others to obtain his goals. He will always apologize if he feels he may have wronged someone, but that's mostly out of courtesy and he doesn't regret his actions. People sometimes look to him as a leader, given his older age and willingness to listen. He has connections with many of the school clubs and people often go to him with their problems. He helps them if he can, but if it interferes with his own matters, he will drop the other's need. He is essentially a selfish person and sees no fault in being so.

Miyako Kiyomizu

The sun was shining brightly this morning, causing Miyako to cover her eyes as she exited the door of the home she shared with her mother and brother. The modest home was not as far from the school as some of her friends, so she could take her time getting to school. Looking at her wristwatch, she could see that it was almost time for her to meet her friend, Haru-chan at the school gates. Despite Haru-chan being her senpai, they made friends quickly and bonded over a mutual love of books and people.

Miyako had Kyudo practice to attend after school that day and was searching her schoolbag to make sure she had what she needed. As she searched, she remembered she had left her mizugake on her desk before leaving. Mentally berating herself, she turned around and rushed back to her home to fetch the forgotten item.

After retrieving it, she ran from the house saying another quick goodbye to her mother and made her way quickly to school. As she rushed, her mind was elsewhere, worrying that she might miss Haru-chan like she had the day before. She was not paying attention to where she was going and in her hurry, she bumped into someone on the street, also heading toward the direction of the school. The stranger was wearing headphones, and had not seemed to notice her. She turned to him, gave a him a small bow and a quick sorry and hurried on her way.

She arrived out of breath at the front gates and glanced around. Students were streaming through the gates, but she saw no sign of Haru-chan. She glanced at her watch again, thinking she might have been late after all, but saw that she was just on time. The school bells wouldn't ring for at least another ten minutes so she Miyako decided to wait for her friend.

Katsuyo Naganishi

Katsuyo sighed as he left the last train stop. He hated using public transportation. It just felt so unclean to him and he was glad to be rid of it, at least until this afternoon where he would be using it to go home. He lived pretty far from Yousaka, but they had a pretty nice academic record and he liked that about it. The train left the station with a Whoosh! and Katsuyo climbed the subway stairs in a bit of rush. He wasn't going to be late, he was never late.

It didn't take him very long to reach the school and he was early as usual. After slipping on his uwabaki, he went in search of his friends. No doubt Hiro, at least, would be here trying to catch a peep at the girls changing. He smirked at the thought of Hiro getting caught again. It was funniest if his sister caught him in the act because she scolded him.

As he climbed the stairs her could hear the sounds of bickering and he again smirked. He looked up, and just as he expected, Hiro was being chewed out by Mira. "Caught again?" Katsuyo said brightly to him. "You should find some better peeping places." He gave Mira a nod and a smile. He was familiar with her, but not too familiar and he didn't feel like angering her just yet. As they were speaking, a guy about his age bumped into Hiro and mumbled sorry. This guy was obviously a foreigner and Katsuyo recognized him as the guy he saw getting beat up a lot in the mornings. Katsuyo never stopped it, always thinking what good what it do for him to get beat up too? Mira took a motherly approach with the stranger like she did with everyone else.

Katsuyo snapped his fingers in further recognition. "Oh, hey, you're that guy from my class. Ike-san right?" He didn't really care if this guy remembered who he was, but he was trying to appear "friendly" in front of Mira.

"No problem, no harm's been done."

Ike let out a small sigh of relief as the male said it was alright, and he seemed to relax a little, but kept his eyes cast downward. He still felt uncomfortable attempting to make any eye contact with either of them, because he didn't know them and he suspected they didn't know who he was either, and he just couldn't handle that right now. Any social situation made him anxious, and it was unfortunate because he really did want to make friends. He wondered if he should walk away now, but the other student, the girl spoke up after, Ike assumed, she had looked him over.

"Are you alright, dear?"

His eyes shot up then to her face, his compass shaped pupils scanning her face for sincerity before locking in on her own eyes. He had a look of what might be called shock. It just seemed like exactly something his sister would say to him, and he had to take a moment to affirm that it wasn't her, even though he knew she was long gone. He opened and closed his mouth a couple of times, looking for the words he was thinking, but was cut off by the snap of the third student's fingers, and addressed him.

"Oh, hey, you're that guy from my class. Ike-san right?"

Ike was a bit thrown off by this student using his first name right away, without seemingly knowing him well enough beyond the point of knowing that they were in the same class. He wondered if it were a friendly gesture, or if this student was just casual enough to ignore customs and call people by their first names whether he was close with them or not. It did take him a couple of moments to register who the student was, but he did know him. Ike recognized most of the other kids that were in his class, though he never really attempted to talk to them. In reality, Ike sort of felt invisible in this school aside from when he was getting beat on. He was beginning to wonder if he was paying some sort of penance for something. He looked between the three momentarily before giving a curt nod.

"Y-Yeah, m'okay..." His voice seemed to trail off again as he began to stammer, and he placed his arms flat at his side and went into a bow. "S-sorry again for the inconvenience."

He rose out of it then, and gave a second small nod to the third student, addressing what he had said now.

"Y-Yes, hello Naganishi-san. Y-You can just call me I-Ike, if you w-want."

Hiro Mashiyama

Hiro saw Katsuyo pass by as he heard him ask, "Caught again?" Hiro chuckled and whispered back, while his sister was distracted, "Yep, just like yesterday, and the day before that, and the day before that." He actually began to think that it may have been better that he was caught because last time he went in, some girl with ridiculous strength had slapped him really hard across the face, and it didn't end too well for him. He was a bit nervous to run into the same girl from before, so he felt a bit glad about being caught, having second thoughts.

"You should find some better peeping places."

Hiro glanced over at his sister, who wasn't paying attention again, and shrugged with a childish smile on his face, "Oh but if I did, people would see me as the secretive pervert, and everyone knows I'm the type of person to do it straight out where the whole public may see my success!" He said sarcastically with a laugh, although he obviously knew he was probably the worst flirt in the whole entire school.

"Y-Yes, hello Naganishi-san. Y-You can just call me I-Ike, if you w-want."

Although he wasn't being spoken directly to, Hiro was always the type of outgoing person to just listen to other conversations and jump in, "Ike? Mmm... doesn't sound very Japanese... Are you a foreigner, Ike?" He asked, not adding any honorifics since he always saw people as friends without even having to meet them. A simple introduction, to Hiro, meant a friend if they had a nice attitude.

Mira Mashiyama

Mira watched as Katsuyo joined them, and saying a simple 'Good morning' with a polite bow and smile. She saw her brother around him sometimes, but couldn't say that she actually knew him as well as her brother did. Still, she was at least glad her brother had a sane friend unlike most of the friends he brought over which all had strange problems like drinking, flirting, or anything else of that sort. Of course, it was nothing serious, but she wasn't exactly very tolerant when it came to their behavior.

"Y-Yeah, m'okay... S-sorry again for the inconvenience."

She saw the student in front of her bow as she did the same, as respect, not sure if he was older or younger, but did it anyways. She couldn't help but continue to stare at the bandages over his face, wondering how he got him, seeing how she only knew a few certain people in the school, mostly just people in her classes, her friends, and her brother's friends. Other than that, she never really got to meet to many people outside that little group she stayed around.

"Y-Yes, hello Naganishi-san. Y-You can just call me I-Ike, if you w-want."

One of the things she had in common with her brother was that she, even though she didn't mean to be rude, listened to the conversation, and seemed to have joined in on it. Perhaps it wasn't exactly called 'joining in,' but she never referred to people by their first name unless she was a very close friend, "May I ask for your last name dear?"

Kohaku Tsubara

While walking, Kohaku saw one of his close friends, Oishi walking to his class. Just as he was about to call out and greet him, one of the people around his age seemed to have bumped into him, laughing as they passed him by. While he got bumped into, his glasses fell, hit his books in his hands, and hit the ground. His vision all of a sudden became blurry as he squinted a bit, and put his hand to the floor, trying to find the glasses he needed to see for class. Most people who walked by him, who's faces he couldn't recognized, just ignored him. He was one of this insignificant people at the school, the nerd, the weirdo, and other nicknames he was called throughout his life. While still searching for his glasses, he seemed to have sighed quietly and thought to himself, 'Only a few people actually understand people like me...' He wasn't just referring to himself, but most of the people who walked around the high school with little friends, and little people who realized them in the crowd.
