Issa Narumiya (
Issa made the suggestion to Haruto Kaguragi about dating Oto Edogawa, after he learned Haruto was afraid of blackmail. He later recognized Oto, when Airi Maya made those posters about Oto being a commoner. Issa was also in a hurry to get Oto's peasant hunt over with and appeared to have guessed Haruto's feelings towards her. He was not present, when Tenma Hase paid Oto Edogawa's donation for her. Issa later went to Oto's classroom to confirm his recognition and encouraged the other girls to stop bullying her.
The Correct 5 members later went to one of Issa's flower arranging ceremonies at a hotel. Issa had hoped to meet the hotel owner's daughter, Megumi Nishidome there. The next day, Issa and the Correct 5 were surprised to see her at Eitoku, waiting for Haruto.
Women reportedly find Issa extremely attractive, especially his "down-turned eyes". His hair is short with his bangs swept to the left. Issa also has both of his ears pierced. He is mostly seen wearing the special Correct 5 uniform.
Personality and traits
Similar to Haruto Kaguragi's admiration of Tsukasa Domyoji, Issa admires Sojiro Nishikado of the F4. Besides respecting Sojiro for being the head of his family's school, Issa also strives to be a "ladies' man" on par with Sojiro. He has an exceptional talent for flower arranging, which his family is famous for. His monthly demonstrations draw huge crowds. Issa is often shown to be laid-back and may appear indifferent towards the Correct 5's activities, but will become serious if need be.
Behind the scenes
- Issa first appears in chapter 1 of Boys Over Flowers Season 2 with the rest of the Correct 5.
- He is the main character in the three page "Bonus Story", which makes fun of his lack of screen time.
- He shares his last name (成宮) with Kiyonaga Narumiya, the cousin of Tsukasa Domyoji. There is a possibility that they are related or it may simply be a coincidence.
