Shinagawa Daichi (品川 大地）)Edit
Shinagawa is the protagonist and "yankee-kun" of the series. Throughout the manga he is always being caught up in Adachi's and the other students' problems. Despite the series being instigated by Adachi and her desire to change, Shinagawa also changes drastically. He is Adachi's Student Council Vice President.
Shinagawa in the PlotEdit
- The male protagonist of the story. Also known as "Yankee-kun," Shinagawa is a short-tempered delinquent who does not like to be bothered and has no plans for his high school life. That is until he meets Adachi, a former delinquent who convinces him to change his path else he might regret it like she did. At first he is merely pestered by Adachi into becoming more active in school, but gradually changes throughout the series: from small things such as not smoking and avoiding class to even becoming co-vice president of his class. He hates to study but is pretty good in math. He is also an honorable person who will try everything to protect others, becoming an integral member in his newfound group of friends.
- His mother is a lawyer while his father, whose personality is similar to his, is a renowned doctor. Later in the series, it is revealed that due to innate talent and his being very hard working, he was one of the top students in a reputable private elementary school. Upon realizing that delinquents were bothering his number one rival in studies, Shizuku Hachioji, interfering with her ability to study, Shinagawa became directly involved to save her. His involvement in a fight with those delinquents resulted in him being kicked out of the school. Although he made a promise with Shizuku to meet again in university, his grades had already begun to slip, eventually losing interest in studies entirely and subsequently becoming a student with poor grades. This event marks his becoming a delinquent and his changed look (he previously had black hair and wore glasses).
- He initially has a love-hate relationship with Hana Adachi, liking her due to her nature to help others no matter what, but becoming annoyed with her due to her idiocy, lack of common sense, and forcing him to help with her bizarre plans and antics. In a bonus chapter, it is shown that Shinagawa decided to attend Mon Shiro only after seeing a beautiful girl, who was actually Adachi without glasses and with loose hair (something he didn't realize until much later chapter 133), at his entrance exam. Although he always bicker with Adachi, he would do anything so that he won't hurt or upset her. He later admits to liking her and even gets jealous when her former middle school classmate tells Shinagawa his intentions to ask her out, but Adachi remains oblivious to Shinagawa's feelings.
