Biography

Early life

In elementary school, Sugimaru met Haruto Kaguragi, Kaito Taira, Issa Narumiya, and Airi Maya.[2]

High school

Sugimaru joined Haruto's Correct 5 with Kaito, Issa, and Airi. Soon after, he began attending Eitoku Senior High. In high school, the Correct conducted "peasant hunts" to force the poor students to quit.[3]

Meeting Oto

The Correct 5 met Oto Edogawa, when she a accidentally ran in front of their car.[3] Later, Haruto asked his friends for advice about a girl blackmailing him. Sugimaru was against Haruto following Issa's advice since he the school's "biggest flirt".[4] He "looked into" Momonozono Academy to figure out why the school was more popular than Eitoku. From his research, he learned about the student president Tenma Hase and reported his findings to Haruto.[5] Sugimaru devised a way to "infiltrate" Momonozono. He and Haruto entered disguised as students. However, they were quickly spotted. Tenma protected the other students from beating them up. They left, when Haruto became irritated by Tenma.[6]

Later, Sugimaru, Kaito, and Issa discovered fliers exposing Oto as a commoner. Sugimaru was surprised by the large amount of fliers spread everywhere.[7] The Correct 5 then decided to expel Oto. Haruto declared that he could not bring himself to do it, much to everyone's surprise. Airi promptly left to expel Oto by herself.[8] After Tenma paid Oto's donation, Sugimaru commented that it was "amazing" that Tenma was her fiance.[9] Before one of Issa's flower arranging performances, Sugimaru was astonished that Haruto was unaware of Airi's feelings for him.[10] An hour later, he was shocked to see Oto with Airi, because of her earlier antagonism toward Oto.[11]

Megumi Nishidome

Sugimaru: "I knew he wouldn't be able to do it. Faking a romance is beyond him."
Issa: "True, but that's what I like about Haruto. He's so genuine he can't lie"

Like the other Correct 5 members, Sugimaru was shocked to see Megumi "Megurin" Nishidome at Eitoku, when she came to return Haruto's wallet.[12] They were also reluctant to believe that he just accidentally met her in the resort's bath. After the initial shock was over, the Correct 5 brought her to their "Salon".[13] Several days later, Sugimaru and Issa annoyed Airi when they appeared unconcerned about Haruto being absent. The same day, Sugimaru was indifferent about Megumi transferring to Eitoku.[14] Meanwhile, Eitoku students were being targeted in "Eitoku hunts", which concerned the Correct 5. The school's gates were later vandalized.[15] Oto spurred Sugimaru and the others to help clean it.[16] Sugimaru was impressed by Oto's actions.[17]

Later, Kaito confirmed that Haruto and Megumi were "over". Sugimaru commented that "faking a romance [was] beyond [Haruto]".[18] Haruto revealed that someone from Momonozono was behind the attacks on Eitoku attacks. Sugimaru reacted angrily, saying "I'm gonna thrash 'em".[19]

Sugimaru had a "nice body" and well-toned muscles from working out constantly. He had spiky, black hair and almond-shaped eyes. Sugimaru was frequently seen wearing work-out clothes, when he was not at school in his Correct 5 uniform.
