GeGeGe no Kitarō Wiki

Yōsuke-kun (ヨースケくん Yōsuke-kun) is a yōkai and haunts Mana's school as one of its seven mysteries, where he is called Yōsuke of the Second Floor Boy's Bathroom.[1]


Yōsuke-kun has the appearance of a teenage boy with pale skin, shadows under his eyes, messy turquoise hair and eyes. He wears a middle school uniform, or gakuran, consisting of a long-sleeved black shirt with several gold buttons, black pants and white shoes. He is noted by Sunakake-Babaa to be rather handsome.[1]

He has a creepy demeanor and is rather obsessive, having sent gifts and flowers to Hanako-san and kept watching her. He is oblivious to his actions, believing that their love is genuine, and will get rid of anyone he thinks is in his way with Hanako-san.[1]

Because of this, he sparked a friendship with Nezumi-Otoko who, after hearing his story, empathized with him over their respective "love", calling them kindered spirits.[1]

Neko-Musume defeating Yōsuke-kun

After a while, Neko-Musume stops them, and asks if he and Hanako-san are really a couple, because she never mentioned him to her. He claims that they are and that she is shy, to which Ittan-Momen asks what he does. He states that he sends her gifts and flowers and is constantly watching her, to which everyone points out that he is merely a stalker. Yōsuke-kun refuses to believe their reasons of why she is not in love with him, telling them of how they fell in love, in that one night he ran out of toilet paper and Hanako-san gave him some to use. Nezumi-Otoko empathizes with him, understanding his love and claims that they are kindred spirits, joining together. Nezumi-Otoko makes him believe that they tried to mislead Hanako-san from him, but in reality, Hanako-san ran away because she was frightened of him. He refuses to believe Neko-Musume's response and attempts to punch her, but is stopped easily and beaten by her. She explains to Yōsuke-kun that he is too enwrapped by his selfish desires and then finishes him off, causing an explosion. His soul then flies to someplace else.[1]
