Hajime Kiriyama (霧山 一 Kazukazu Kiriyama) is a 1st year in class A and a member of the Beautification Club.
Hajime wears his navy blue jacket buttoned together over his white shirt and red tie. He also wears brown chequered pants and brown shoes.
Like Masaru Gohonmatsu, Hajime is a very loyal 1st year student to his club's president who will gladly follow any of Rei's order, even helping carrying his senpai around to force him to do his chores.
Besides his respct for Rei, Hajime is very kind and tends to take care others a lot, which compare to being like a mother.
While he may not look like, his very physically strong and his often in charge of the heavy work within the club. He is horrible at sports, however, and laments about this part of him.
Not much is known about Hajime, but he is the eldest son in his large family and he is very good in taking care of his younger siblings.
Hajime and Masaru are both clubmates that praise and extremely admire their senpai, Rei Ichijodani, and follow his commands no matter what. Their relationship goes beyond that, though. They're very fond of eachother, living with eachother and finishing eachother's sentences.
They're also very dramatic when it comes to eachother. In one of the dramas, Hajime gets buried under clutter when they open a storage closet and Masaru is devastated and overly-dramatic about the accident, asking if Hajime is alive. In another, when Kippei Uwajima uses a leaf blower on his friends, Hajime gets blown away and Masaru runs after him and shouts his name.
Surprisingly, Hajime can be very clingy. He wants Masaru to be around him and gets slightly jealous when Masaru spends more time with others than with him. He gets pouty when Masaru is late to their appointments.
Hajime greatly admires Rei and follows his every word no matter what, alongside Masaru.
Rei scouted both Masaru and Hajime for the Beautification Club.
Ordered by Rei, Hajime has to frequently carry Kakeru around like mikoshi (portable shrine) in order for him to do his club work. Their relationship isn't all so bad, though, as he calls Kakeru by his first name ("kakeru-san") and admires him. He says that he considers carrying Kakeru around as his hobby, much to his dismay.
