Appearance EditYū has maroon eyes and black hair. His attire often consists of two uniforms; his Hoshinoumi Academy uniform consists of a black jacket and black pants, while Hinomori uniform is of a grey jacket, grey pants, and a dark green tie.
Personality EditYū is naturally academically poor, having trouble in classes and with studying. However, he possesses a certain level of cunning that compensates for his lack of academic ability once using various kinds of subterfuge, as well as his ability (see below), to deceive the people around him into believing his image as a model student.
While a master of his own crafts, he isn't the best at socializing with others, and is quite rude at the beginning of the story. He only acts differently when talking to his younger sister, Ayumi, where he usually tones down his personality and becomes more open and brother-like.While masquerading as a model student, he hides his extremely narcissistic and sociopathic personality very well, which is made evident when in Episode 1 where he saves Yumi Shirayanagi from a car crash he orchestrated to win her affection, without concerning about her safety.
However, he appears to have the ability to form genuine bonds with people by his happy expression as his team won the baseball game in episode 4.
Ability EditYū has the ability to take over someone's body for approximately 5 seconds. He often uses this power to view honors students during their exams to memorize and steal their answers. While in use, His iris becomes lime green and his pupil becomes light teal. However, his body slumps into unconsciousness while this ability is in use. Recently, it has also been discovered he can use other espers abilities whilst controlling their bodies. However, the five second time limit still applies.
Yū is similar to Lelouch vi Britannia from Code Geass. They both have black hair (the bangs going towards the right side) </span>as well as similar personalities and the ability to use their eye powers to manipulate a person (Yū can control someone for 5 seconds while Lelouch can give someone an absolute command). Both are also considered handsome or attractive.Nao serves to balance Yu's arrogance and condescension. Everytime he and Nao are involved in an argument, whether verbal or physical, the results always involved Yu beaten and forced to assume a pose that involves him falling on his knees, bending foward, planting face on the ground, and sticking his butt up. This is his punishment for being an arrogant jerk.
