Of course we do! Usually when we’re bored, we would share headphones and listen to music together as a pastime. I have lots of CD collections that we could listen to…Yoshiki doesn’t mind listening to them from what I can tell…
We do have our own tastes, but we’re open to listening to a variety of genres; nothing in particular!!
Apparently has difficulties with geometry as he got a low score on one of his mini-tests (tests done in order measure understanding for a single topic
within a subject).
His kind nature is well
known by friends and faculty. This occasionally has him roped into doing
favors for them since they know he won’t refuse.
the pork cutlet sandwiches that are sold at the school cafeteria, but
often fails to acquire them. A variety of events occur that prevent him
from getting to them before they sell out. (e.g. his mother giving him a
lunch box with only a thousand yen bill and a note asking him to buy
lunch (thus delaying him to the point the cafeteria had closed before he
could get to it), or joining the line just in time to watch the very
last one being sold out in front of his eyes, etc.)
Often ends up escorting his little sister after school. Is not involved with any after school clubs or societies.
morning walk to school is either with his little sister, if not
Yoshiki. This is an old habit from when Yoshiki used to skip school
quite often. In the past he would come by to Yoshiki’s apartment most
mornings to drag the delinquent to school.
this guy’s intuition is no joke… Well, that’s like the only good thing
about him… Finds out what people are worried about, or what makes them
happy real quick…)”
(Yoshiki thinking about Satoshi’s perceptive nature)
and easy going, Satoshi serves as the mediator/binding agent for their
group of friends. Things he agrees upon tend to be accepted by everyone
“You’re a real fraidy cat, aren’t you?”
“No I’m not!”
“Weak against women, scared of ghosts. Can you even go to the bathroom without me?”
“What did you say?!”
(Yoshiki and Satoshi after riding a roller coaster.)
most people would be annoyed by Yoshiki’s occasionally scathing
remarks, Satoshi responds to them with childish anger. This often turns
cynical into comedic. The two of them arguing is often looked upon as a
source of amusement by the girls of their group.
Satoshi: “So the guy’s will be on drinks duty then. Morishige, you want green tea, right?”
Morishige: “Huh? Oh, well remembered.”
Yoshiki: “Hmm, for me… let’s see…”
Satoshi: “Huh?… Not listening.”
Yoshiki: “Eh? H-hey!”
(Satoshi looking out for a slightly queasy Morishige while still being annoyed at Yoshiki.)
he can’t refuse requests, he still takes a leadership role for his
gender in their group of friends. Pro-activity and sensitivity to the
wants of others makes him a surprisingly good leader.
“Ms. Yui, your bike chain came off today, didn’t it? I love watching when you fail. Ahahaha!”
(Satoshi’s slightly mean streak(The English translation changed his dialogue to make it less mean.))
isn’t a saint and does enjoy the occasional bit of schadenfreude
(enjoyment derived from the suffering of others). Regardless, he still
places the well being of his friends and family above himself.
Yoshiki, Satsoshi has a firmer grasp of his own limits and is less
likely to dive head first into situations. He has regretted this
caution, however, lamenting that he may have been able to do more if he
was a bit pushier.
“(I don’t think this is about rationality anymore.)”
(Satoshi questioning Niwa, Kuon’s thought processes.)
offended by people other than his friends, Satoshi tends to act as
calmly and logically as possible, instead of arguing back like he does
with Yoshiki or Naomi. He will collapse from a headache if situations
get too ridiculous though. (For those interested in the limit it would
involve having a hot spring built in his front yard without prior
notice, and a school friend of his little sister’s trying to seduce him
with her bust.)
“Sensei, were you crying?”
(Satoshi worrying about others.)
if offended by someone, he still cares about what they feel. A real
goody two shoes who can’t stand people being sad around him.
“DON’T SCREW WITH ME!”
with all the above points, Satoshi is still capable of being angry with
people. He is a caring person, but not caring to the extent where that
is his only reaction to things.
Yoshiki he tries to save those he can, but although he pities and pays
respects to the dead, he makes no attempts to save them.
May have a boob fetish.
He is best friends with Kishinuma, Yoshiki and is childhood friends with Nakashima, Naomi.
He is most at ease with these two and their friendly chatting can break up tense situations and introduce a warmer atmosphere.
relationship with his little sister is quite strong. (It is interesting
to note how Yuka’s death causes him to darken while Naomi’s doesn’t.)
Additionally, his sister is probably the one person he can watch a
“scary” movie with (Mostly because what is defined as “scary” by Yuka
isn’t scary for Satoshi anymore.). This does result in her asking him to
walk her to the bathroom for the next couple of days so there’s nothing
much to gain from doing this. He is trying to get her to stop though.
(This is from the Drama CD if you are wondering.)
think too far into his relationships and hence doesn’t really recognize
whether his feelings for some of them are romantic or not. For him, his
friends are simply precious. If they are happy, he’s mostly content.
Niwa, Kuon fell in love with him for some unknown reason(s).
According to her it began from the day she became their assistant homeroom teacher.
Satoshi has no memories of these events, he doesn’t understand how to
react to her numerous signs of affection towards him. (It gets to the
point where Kuon offers to feed him mouth to mouth. However, whether
this is a sign of how far Kuon’s relationship with Satoshi was or simply
Kuon’s oddball nature is debatable.)
notable that there seem to be events that Kuon does remember that
Satoshi doesn’t. i.e. their relationship was not only a teacher student
one. (The realization that this Satoshi doesn’t love her back and the
lack of his memories causes the stopped timer on her watch to begin
counting down again.)
No major supernatural one, however, a few interesting characteristics are present.
Extreme tolerance to pain:
can experience being; stabbed, strangled, both his legs broken, set on
fire, and experience a high fever without losing his sanity from the
pain or becoming mentally distraught. He does get depressed from it
Possible resistance to spiritual attacks:
the only member who could reach Yoshie’s diary as both Yuka and Naomi
experienced massive headaches when they approached the room it was kept
is relatively fit as he can carry about 45kg(99lb) on his back while
running over uneven ground and tackle things such as the Anatomical
Model hard enough to send them flying. However, this does not translate
into fighting skills as his inoffensive nature coupled with his lack of
experience often leaves him with no idea what to do.
sense what people are feeling and work out why they are feeling that
way. Has proven useful in building friendships as well as figuring out
the grudges and curses of the spirits he has had to deal with. His eye
for detail is quite high. However, his trusting nature tends to make him
take people’s words at face value, thus hindering this ability.
a personality trait, this kindness often makes him appear more
trustworthy and can occasionally be helpful in acquiring new allies. His
attention to the needs of others has turned hostile characters into
ambivalent or sometimes cooperative ones.
unverified ability. Has attracted the attention of multiple women from a
variety of social archetypes. As Glamors (spells that attract people
towards you) do exist in Corpse Party-verse it is possible this effect
is not solely thanks to his personality or looks.
Resistance to the Ridiculous:
His family life is slightly crazier than it looks.
mother of the Mochida family has a bizarre sense of humor. She
sometimes hands her son a lunchbox with nothing but a 1000 Yen bill and a
note asking him to buy lunch with it (Possibly in order to stop him
from complaining about her not making lunch. (By handing him a lunch box
with the lunch money she can trick him for long enough to avoid the
complaints. Also, hopefully by the time he returns home, he’s no longer
bitter about it)). Additionally, his mother seems to have no problems
having Kuon as a new family member. This probably means she was ready
(possibly even hoping) for a future where Satoshi may marry Kuon.
resistance may be a trait possessed by all the members of the Mochida
family as his father has no qualms at finding a hot spring being built
in front of his house without being told about it.
Satoshi himself finds his family’s adaptability insane at times but most decides to simply shrug and get on with it.
His calm outlook and ability to deal with stressful situations may be a by-product of this hectic daily life.
Minor Cooking Skills:
Knows enough about cooking to make egg rice porridge, a meal often prepared for people with colds.
