Kiichi Momozaki (百崎 喜一 Momozaki Kiichi) is the adoptive son of Jofuku and the former best friend of Shojiro Ito. He is a supporting character who made his debut in "Episode 20".

He dreams of restoring Saga to a suitable prefecture after it was forcibly merged with neighboring Nagasaki after the Saga Rebellion of 1874.

Appearance

Kiichi's physical appearance is that of a young man of around 17 years old and he has orange hair and eyes of the same color, apparently he does not seem to have physical abilities.

He wears a long red Yukarta and wooden shoes, plus a white shirt underneath.

Personality

Kiichi is a young man with enough energy and a noble heart who wants to regain Saga's glory after the war eight years prior, his father died during the war so he was taken in by Jofuku as his grandson constantly takes care of him. In fact, it is thanks to Jofuku that Kiichi decides to go out into the streets of Saga to distribute pamphlets to recover Saga's former glory, whether he is pushed in the streets or his friends take advantage of him, nothing seems to go well for him. When he meets Yugiri, he instantly falls in love and treats her like a lady, to the point of giving her a comb that she would later use when she was revived, according to Ito's words they would both form a good couple because they seem to be made for each other.

He is a rather idealistic and childish young man who is willing to fulfill his dreams but is unfortunately ignored by people and everyone around him seems indifferent or opposes his efforts to restore Saga, to the point of getting into trouble with the forces of order, when he finally gets support for his cause to bring Saga back, he is left aside by his companions who want to go to war to recover Saga but they are killed by Ito who was there to stop any rebellion. Because of this, Kiichi feels like useless because real people died because of him and his childhood dream, but Yugiri manages to console him and tells him that these people will not die in vain and that his dream must be fulfilled no matter how childish it may be, which motivates Kiichi to escape Saga and guide his future to make a new Saga.
