Sadao tends to be anti-social and blunt, but often prefers not to talk to people at all instead of insulting them. He is usually calm and determined, but also straightforward and fixed on pushing his limits. He believes that if someone doesn’t try his hardest everyday he’s not worthy of succeeding in anything and tends to look down on people who don’t try hard enough from his point of view. Even though he will most likely come across as a dominant person who doesn’t care about what others think, he actually cares an awful lot and might sometimes unintentionally show off in order to get the attention he never had. Next to that he’s a terribly sore loser, but won’t rage because of it. Instead he ignores his opponent and just starts muttering to himself with a frown.
Because of the fact that he has never really gotten to learn how to get along with others, he might even give blunt remarks without meaning any harm and has a tendency to treat any friend he might have with more disrespect than he should, however, as soon as he realises it he will do everything to restore the possible precious bond they have.
To people who know him well enough he will most likely show his ‘softer side’ which is a lot like how he used to be as a kid; a naive, shy personality that tends to get excited over odd things.
He often hides his sexual orientation and doesn’t like to be reminded of it due to events in the past. In general he usually claims that there are more important things to attend to than being intimate with someone anyway. However, even though he often hides it he will not deny it either to himself or others when someone asks him straight to the point.
He is Arrogant and Tends to be blunt
He is Determined
He is anti-social
He is shy and naïve at times
He greatly values any bond he might develop with others.
He cares a lot about what people think and will occasionally try to get attention by showing off.
Sometimes he’s a bit too honest for his own good when it comes to stating his opinion.
He sometimes randomly becomes overenthusiastic when he’s greatly enjoying something, but other than that he’s usually a calm person.
As a kid, Sadao lived a village in the far North of Japan together with his parents and his older brother who left and moved to the US and later joined the army when Sadao was 10. He died because of an accident during a training mission 4 years later. Sadao has never gotten rid of his brother’s army pendant ever since they got it back from the army.
Sadao has never been quite popular in primary school and his former high school. This was mostly because of the fact that he was a typical ‘zero’; he was small, skinny, wore round glasses and liked to spend his time inside rather than outside like the rest of the kids, mostly because he was terribly shy and liked to read instead of running around. Because of this he got bullied a lot in high school, and got put through a lot with it from calling names and pulling his hair to stealing his clothes after gym and seriously hurting him.
One day after school when it was winter, his classmates urged him to go and pick up their ball which they accidentally kicked onto the frozen lake.
Afraid of being humiliated or hurt once again Sadao had decided to do as they said and ended up falling through the ice, nearly drowning until a teacher nearby saved him and had him taken to the hospital. Despite of the fact that he loved to swim beforehand, after this accident Sadao developed claustrophobia and a phobia for large amounts of water.
Later he started to discover his sexual orientation which left him confused a lot and ended up putting him in the most awkward situation of his life; Accidentally getting turned on as a young teenager in the showers after gym class. This is what caused the other students to make his last few years of high school a living hell and almost making him drop out. However, especially in these last years his personality dramatically changed; He decided to stop crying, work hard and never think of others from there on because that would be his only way to get anywhere in life. He started to push his limits everywhere he could; studying hard, going outside and training a lot to get stronger and fitter and pushing himself to go to the water to get over his phobia, although he never succeeded to get rid of his fear for enclosed areas and might still panic when he thinks he can’t get out of the water whenever he wants.
He ended up graduating early, so with the time he had left and in order to push his limits even more he eventually decided to go to Mizu-no-Gakuen hoping that one day he will completely get rid of his fears and even enjoy it as much as he used to when he was little.
He can get bribed with strawberries or strawberry flavoured sweets or pastries sometimes
He never takes off his brother’s army pendant
He wears contacts (hence why he always has his goggles with him when he’s about to go in the water. He does, however, wear his glasses when he’s reading in bed.)
He has a habit of running his hand through his hair to put it back occasionally even though part of it just falls down again right after.
When someone points out his blunt remarks and/or behaviour he will listen to it and try to stop most of the time, except when he’s truly annoyed or frustrated or seriously looking down on a person.
He occasionally tries too hard and just ends up being clumsy
He fails to hide it when he likes someone or something a person does to him quite easily, and will show the most obvious signs to what he feels. There’s a slight chance he will try to run off when it happens.
He likes to believe his older brother is watching him and proud of him for the things he has accomplished. He might sometimes be caught talking to himself as if he was talking to his brother.
When he isn’t certain if an area will be small or crowded and when he goes to the pool he always takes a paper bag with him to breathe in in case of a panic attack, although he will try to hide it to the best of his abilities.
For those who didn’t get it or didn’t read: he’s a homosexual
He turns red or blushes very easily when he messes something up
Due to the bullying his father forced him to learn Krav Maga from when he was 13. He still practises this 2 times a week, but swimming has become his first priority nowadays
I can imagine him with Nakamura Yuuichi's voice. He's dubbed multiple characters so here's just an example: youtu.be/L05IiKsQ40I
