An ordinary boy who grew up in an average family, Tomoya is a pushover. He hates it when others think he's weird because of the peculiar people around him, but he doesn't want to be seen as "average," either.
In the Theater Club, he loathes the eccentric Wataru Hibiki, but highly respects Hokuto Hidaka. Since they make him read all sorts of scripts, his speech tends to become mixed up as a result, and he has some trouble with formal speech. A member of the unit Ra✽bits.

Voice Actor Comment
"When I first saw the character chart, my impression was that he's a very adorable character. He seems friendly and has great affection for his upperclassmen--basically, he's like a little puppy. I still remember feeling very perplexed when the director asked me to portray him as an average boy, with a capital A. I feel that it's the most difficult to portray an ordinary, 'average' protagonist. While acting Mashiro-kun's role, I kept wondering what kind of image the audience has of an average boy. I'm very excited to see how his relationships with his classmates, upperclassmen, and especially close friends will develop! I hope everyone will look forward to his stories as well. Please treat him kindly!"
