Jet Black Bride Arc

The gathered suitors

The gathered suitors.

Kariteru is waiting for Medaka Kurokami on the aircraft carrier Black, along with the other suitors. He introduces himself as pervert number five, and claims he likes girls with glasses, and thinks all girls should wear glasses.[3] He expresses his belief that Medaka will look good even in fake glasses.[4] Kariteru listens on as Bukiko Udou explains the rules of the second Jet Black Wedding Feast.[5] Kariteru is the fifth to battle Najimi Ajimu, claiming he had prepared "that" for the occasion should he need to fight.[6] However, he is easily defeated by one hundred of Ajimu's biological skills.[7] As Kariteru lies defeated, it is revealed that he and the others are actually nothing more than doubles for the real suitors.[8][9]

Unknown Shiranui Arc

After Iihiko Shishime realizes Fukurou Tsurubami does not want Hansode Shiranui as a double, he leaves the Shiranui Village, beating Kariteru and several other doubles in the process.[10]

Bouquet Toss To The Future Arc

Kariteru confronts Medaka at Hakoniwa Academy as part of the 100 Flowers Run, along with Iihiko and the rest of the Shiranui family.[11] Medaka defeats Kariteru with her War God Mode.[12] His message to Medaka is to tell her to say the word if she ever needs glasses.[13]


  • The names of the six doubles all contain kanji that hinted at them being impostors. His name, 仮輝 (Kariteru), contains 仮, which can mean "Temporary" or "False".
  • Kariteru's fetish for a girl with glasses seems to be fulfilled by Kanaino, who wears glasses.
