That's Hiroshi Satou, the guy I respect most in this school.
~ Kusuo to Satou


Hiroshi Satou (佐藤 広, さとう ひろし lit. Satou Hiroshi) is from the same class as Reita. He is the epitome of an ultimate normal guy, everything that Kusuo has ever wanted to be. Hiroshi was first introduced as someone who gets the same rank in school as Kusuo. Someone who has boring name, common appearance, average in brains and body and has no single quality to stand out. He blends into the background, so the other characters tend to lose sight of him. Hiroshi has his own circle of friends: a chubby guy and a skinny glasses guy.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Normalcy: Satou Hiroshi possesses the power to turn himself and his surroundings normal. For himself that means that he has no unique characteristics all across the board, having normal academic abilities, a normal family, normal friends, normal physique, normal looks, a normal name, normal behaviour etc.
    For his surroundings that means that they turn out to be completely cliché. A good example is his baseball team. A baseball team where everybody is normal wouldn't be normal at all. Instead it has a captain that is always carrying around a club registration form, a guy that is only good at running, a genius pitcher who didn't go to the famous baseball school for some reason, a chubby catcher and a glasses guy with a high IQ. All of these are cliché characters that show up in every sports manga. So while individually not normal, they build a perfectly normal group that allows Satou to appear as just some normal background character. Likewise the events happening to the team, like being disbanded if they don't win the next game, are cliché points of an average sports manga, in a certain sense making them the most normal developments possible. These Sport manga clichés even go to a supernatural extend: The members of the baseball team have developed special superhuman techniques, such as moving so fast that it leaves after images or throwing a ball so fast it catches fire, like is typical for protagonists in sports manga.
