Saika is a member of the Tennis Club.
He is first introduced in the series when he asks the Service Club to help him improve his tennis skills. Since then, he is a recurring character and becomes an unofficial member of the Service Club's activities.
Saika has a soft, feminine appearance, and on occasion is mistaken as a female by Hachiman. He has short, light brown hair, large, sparkling blue eyes, and light skin tone. He is seen wearing his gym uniform throughout most of the series, often accompanied by his tennis racket, a towel around his neck or both.
In the anime, it consists of a dark and light green sports jacket, similar colored shorts with black knee length tights underneath, and wears a v-neck inner shirt that is long sleeved and a lighter shade of green in color.
In the manga, his shorts are slightly longer and his inner shorts are not visible.
In the light novels, his clothes are exactly the same as in the anime, except his jacket is initially light blue and changes into green later in the novels, and his inner shirt is short sleeved with a blue collar and is white.
He also wears a black bracelet on his right wrist.
Saika has a soft, and kind demeanor, as well as a feminine appearance, which confuses Hachiman on multiple occasions to mistake Saika as a female, though once he realizes he might fall for Saika, he instantly stops himself by remembering Saika is a male. Though, he ends up proposing to Saika and blushes and he obviously wants him and loves him.
Saika is one of the few people who truly wants to be closer than friends with Hachiman, despite Hachiman wanting to stay a loner because of Hachiman's tsundere-like attitude. He is also one of the few people who admire Hachiman for his true, kind personality.
Saika loves sports, mainly tennis.
He was in the same class as Hachiman for two years.and they attend the same gym-session in school. Saika seems to have a very kind and loving personality towards Hachiman, and even goes as far as to hug him when their team wins the athletic tournament, making Hachiman blush like crazy .Saika is the first person in the series to call hachiman by his first name.
Every-time Hachiman talks to Saika, Hachiman is often blushing, despite Saika being a male. Once being approached by Saika in class, Hachiman blushed, stating, "Please cook for me every morning for the rest of my life" causing Saika to be utterly confused, in which Hachiman quickly responds "I'm not fully awake yet."
Hachiman often has 'thoughts' about Saika, and quickly stops himself from 'falling for the Totsuka route' after quickly remembering that Saika is a male,
In Light Novel ,they often seem to hangout together in places like arcade and even to the movies during summer vacation mentioned in volume 5. Saika is one of the few to have hachima's cell number and E-mail-id .Saika thinks hachiman to be cool which is mentioned in volume 9
Hayato and Saika seem to be on friendly terms. Saika and Hayato even participated in the main roles of Hina's yaoi play, though Hachiman was originally supposed to be in Saika's place. It is shown that Hayato was initially reluctant to take the part, though he eventually obliges due to his courteous manner. Saika was shown to not argue or complain about participating, though instead wondering rather cutely to Hachiman if he was "right for the part." Hayato ,Hachima and saika attended the work place visit as a group.
They're classmates and probably Yuigahama probably thinks of one day cross-dressing Saika and taking pictures of him. They're really on good terms.
Saika seems to hang out comfortably with the service club during any official activities like kawasaki issue and also during unofficial activities like the Chiba camp ,yui's birthday,Christmas party etc
