It's such nice weather. But I wonder where this is. There's a deer I've never seen before.

Kousuke Seto (瀬戸 幸助 Seto Kōsuke) / Seto (セト) is the second member of the Mekakushi Dan.


Seto is a young man with short black hair and hazel eyes. He wears a dark green jumpsuit with a pair of goggles attached to the hood, a brown belt, and dark green sneakers. He also wears a yellow hair clip on the left side of his head. His sleeves and pant legs are rolled up, showing the white inside of the suit.
When he was young, he wore a white hoodie with golden trousers and purple sneakers.[8]
In Mekakucity Actors, he wears a black shirt with a red neck underneath his suit and shoes that appear almost black.
In Summertime Record, Seto is seen wearing a yellow shirt underneath his white hoodie, along with the pants part of his green jumpsuit.


Seto is a kind-hearted person and gets along with everyone. He is also close childhood friends[9][10] with Kido and Kano, as they all came from the same orphanage, and later, Seto lives with them together in an apartment. He often wanders off to explore new places. To earn money, he works as a florist at a shopping center and has other jobs, such as traffic control and delivering newspapers.
He dislikes his Eye Ability and rarely uses it on people. He first discovered his ability to understand the speech of animals while wandering through the forest before he ran into Marry.[11]

Eye Ability

  • Stealing Eyes (目を盗む Me o Nusumu): Seto's eye ability which allows him to hear the thoughts of his target's mind, which includes animals.[12][13][11] However, even though he is able to understand animals, the animals cannot understand him because to them he still speaks human language. When he loses control of his ability, which he often did as a child, he can hear the true thoughts and emotions of everyone, even strangers, in a wide area. [14] When used to its full potential, it can read a person's memories. [15]





  • He has a pet hamster named "Hanao".[1] The hamster may know something about eye abilities, as he calls Seto a monster. It also appears to know about Azami.[16]
  • His favorite type of girl is someone like Yachigusa Kaoru.[1]
  • Like Kido and Kano, he is referred to with his last name rather than his first name.
  • His white hoodie was a gift from Ayano when they were younger, but he gave it to Marry upon meeting her.[17]
  • He usually ends his sentence with "-ssu", a way to shorten desu, a Japanese polite copula.
  • Because Seto has a lot of part-time jobs, he was designed to wear something comfortable to work around, as suggested by Sidu.[18]
  • His dog's name is "Hanako".[19]
  • Seto's designs had to be corrected the most when the anime production team presented the rough character sketches. According to Sidu, he looked like a whole new character.[20]




  1. Chronologically, Seto should be 16, however, Jin and Sidu state he is 17.
  2. Kagerou Daze VI -over the dimension-'s official English translation has Haruka mentally noting Kido "didn't seem too much younger than I was". In comparison, Seto is described as "he looked about one or two years younger than [Haruka]". Though this makes Kido and Seto the same age chronologically, Kido would also be some months older than Seto, with Seto being the youngest of him, Kido, and Kano.
