Hagiyoshi is Touka Ryuumonbuchi's butler. One of his jobs is tracking and escorting Koromo Amae when she is required for matches. Hagiyoshi has a number of talents such as sewing, cooking, and mahjong. His main asset, however, is his ability to vanish, like that of a ninja even while wearing a suit. He is usually calm and quiet with a sly smile on his face. It has been revealed at the nationals that he and Kyoutarou Suga met during the prefecturals when Kyou was buying tacos. Hagiyoshi has since taught him how to make his own tacos.
