Voiced by: Yūtaro Hōnjō,[3] Takuto Yoshinaga (young)
Kenji is a seemingly average boy who lives with his grandfather and baby sister. His constant tardiness suggests he is lazy and his habits suggest he is absent minded, but his room is littered with inventions and construction plans, which indicates intelligence belies his general appearance. He and Natsuki have lived as neighbors since they were young children and are good friends despite their frequent fighting and incessant teasing. Kenji has an unexplained crush on Kahori Harukawa, which Natsuki exploits through teasing. Though Kenji is generally straightforward, he has difficulty putting his emotions into words, which makes it difficult for him to convey his feelings to Kahori and understand Natsuki's jealousy. Unknown to even him, Kenji is a powerful psychic whose powers were sealed by his grandfather.

On the one hand, she wishes to support Kenji, but on the other, she wishes her feelings would reach him. As a result, she often says and does things to Kenji she does not mean.
