Yuya is very expressive and energetic. He is very passionate, especially when it comes to Ran. His crush on Ran even leads him to having a crazy imagination where he plays out scenarios, taking the parts of both himself and Ran. His emotions can change swiftly as well, such as when he was modeling during a magazine shoot and he was all depressed until Ran called him and he became all energetic.
