The man who had rejected Daisuke’s proposals for the past twenty years. His family runs the local bathhouse.
Has been proposing to his friend Kou for the past twenty years. His family runs the local liquor store.
The first time Daisuke had asked Kou to marry him, they were in kindergarten and he was rejected. But it’s not like this has stopped him – not when Daisuke’s been proposing every year for the past twenty years! Proposing and rejecting has happened so much between them that at this point, it almost feels less like something serious and more like a running joke. Has Daisuke ever thought about what he should do if ever Kou says yes?
