He makes his appearances in Episode 2 (when he gives Yukito Kunisaki a birthday cake), Episode 11 (when he comes to take back Misuzu Kamio after he left her in Haruko Kamio's care), Episode 12 (when he talks with Haruko after Misuzu passed away) and Air: The Movie.

Appearance and PersonalityEdit

Keisuke is a handsome young man with short brown hair that is split on both sides and blue eyes. He is normally seen wearing a business suit and a tie. In the Air: The Movie, Keisuke is seen wearing square-rimmed glasses.

Even though Keisuke looks and acts a very nice and polite person on screen, he is not the best person which can make it easy to ignore his actions. When his wife left or passed away, he didn't want to keep his daughter because she wasn't normal so he gave her to Haruko Kamio (Ikuko Tachibana's sister). After a few years, he changes his mind and tries to take her despite the fact her aunt has legally adopted her taking advantage of the memory loss Misuzu Kamio was going through at the time. But when she does get her memories back and rejects him, he accepts it gracefully.

Background Edit

After Ikuko Tachibana (Keisuke's wife) passed away from unknown causes, he left Misuzu Kamio to Haruko Kamio to raise her, even though Haruko didn't want her. After several years later, he came back to get Misuzu, but Haruko had grown close to Misuzu and didn't want to give her up. At the time, Misuzu was suffering memory loss and was calling Haruko "aunty" instead of "Mother", which didn't help the case. Keisuke gave Haruko and Misuzu three days, and if Misuzu didn't remember who Haruko was, he would take Misuzu back. Three days passed, and Misuzu was still calling Haruko "aunty". When Keisuke went to get her, Misuzu made a fuss and ran back to Haruko, calling out "Mama!". After seeing how close Misuzu had grown to Haruko, he decides to let Misuzu stay with her.
