  • People often make jokes out of his name because it sounds like the English "kiss me".[1][2]
  • Haruka doesn't particularly like Kisumi for the reason being that during middle school, Makoto started hanging out with him too, making him jealous.
  • His uncle, Katsumi Shigino, runs a small real estate business that he often helps with.
  • Whenever Katsumi came to visit Kisumi, he would say "Kiss me! Catch me!"[3]
  • He's kept in touch with Asahi Shiina since Iwatobi Junior High School and they're still good friends.
  • Kisumi has admitted to Haruka in middle school that he admires the “natural Asahi” who is free, straightforward and always cheerful while he himself is just trying to look good.
