Naruse Shisuto (成瀬 詩守斗, なるせ しすと lit. Naruse Shisuto) is one of the male supporting characters of Komi-san wa Komyushou Desu Wiki, introduced in chapter 102 as the "handsome protagonist" of his own story.

Appearance

Naruse has blue, gelled hair with bangs he can often be seen adjusting. He wears glasses and is also usually seen with his earbuds. He was first introduced wearing the school male uniform which he is most often seen in.

History

Naruse is a person who believes that all people are his fans and the reason he is not approached is that others think he is too good for them to talk to. Believing that Komi is the only person who would be able to relate to this problem he attempts to talk to her multiple times but is foiled by Komi's fans. To him, Tadano is so ordinary that he seems invisible. Later when Naruse leaves the classroom he drops his handkerchief which Komi returns to him. This action causes Naruse to believe Komi is in love with him and asks for her number the next day. He doesn't get her number but thanks to some words from his friend Kometani he does get the number of Tadano and they become friends.

Naruse is in Tadano and Katai's group on the school trip. Naruse becomes friends with Katai during their bath time.

When everyone enters their second years, Naruse is in class 2-1 along with Komi et al. Being friends with Tadano and Komi from the previous year, Naruse and Kometani begin tagging along with Komi, Tadano, and Rumiko (and occasionally Najimi), in addition to their new friend Ase.

In Chapter 165, during a trip to the beach, Naruse trips in the sand and gets pulled out to sea upside down. After being saved by the lifeguards, Naruse is feeling down. Ase stays with Naruse after that.

In Chapter 180, as Shibuki and Naruse tremble onward during Najimi's "Test of Courage", Ase apologizes for having to be Naruse's partner and berates herself for her sweatiness, even as Naruse cowardly hides behind her. Naruse replies with comforting words, saying she shouldn't be so hard on herself for her sweating, and thanks to her for sticking by his side after the embarrassing incident on the beach. He then blows it off with a narcissistic comment. Hereafter, Naruse seems to start developing feelings toward Ase.

In Chapters 211 and 229, Naruse attempts to lend a hand to Ase. In Ch 211, he's going to get the sweaty Ase some water during the Sports Festival. In Ch 229, he starts helping Ase clean up confetti. Both times, though, he is interrupted by the sudden appearance of Isagi Kiyoko. The first time, Isagi intercedes by offering Ase water before Naruse gets the chance, The second, Naruse gets a swift whack from Isagi's mallet when he gets too close to Ase. And a few extra hundred whacks thereafter, for good measure.

In chapter 361, Manbagi observed Ase and Naruse are always being together. This resulted to confronting Ase and Ase finally confirms that she and Naruse are in relationship. She further confirmed that it was she who confessed and was flustered when asked if they smooched (by the girl love talk group). Kiyoko became out cold during this.

  • Naruse enjoys western music and is shown listening to "Justice Bieber" in his intro chapter.
