|~ Tomohiko Kazami|
Tomohiko Kazami is a character from Another (anime).
Kazami appears to have short dark blue hair and blue eyes. He wears spectacles with green frames in the anime. In the manga, he has the same appearance. He is usually seen wearing the school male standard uniform.
He has a very serious attitude, especially about his work. It is shown that he and Teshigawara have been friends since they were children. While he was initially warm and welcoming to Kouichi. When Yukari Sakuragi died, he became emotionally unstable, which amplified when Teshigawara threw him over the balcony, mistaking him for the Extra student. Since then, he harboured a hatred for Kouchi so strong that he is one of the few members of the class that doesn't join in on the witch hunt for Mei Misaki.
Tomohiko first appeared in the story, with Yukari Sakuragi and Izumi Akazawa at the hospital. They were there to visit the patient, Kouichi Sakakibara as class representatives of Yomi North and wanted to express their welcome to him. Tomohiko personally sent Kouichi notes in order to help him keep up with the class' current curriculum. When Kouichi arrived in school, Izumi was absent from class prompting Tomohiko and Naoya Teshigawara, to give Kouichi the class tour. He among many of Class 3-3 were trying to keep Kouichi from acknowledging Mei Misaki as part of a charm to keep the school from suffering an annual calamity, which causes students and their relatives to die one by one. The calamity eventually came and Yukari Sakuragi was the first to die, falling down the stairs and impaling her throat on an umbrella. While he has seldom appeared in the anime since then, he didn't show true prominence until the class trip, where Naoya Teshigawara threw him over the Inn Balcony during the class trip, under the false assumption that he was the Extra (dead) Student of the year. He survived with a severe head injury and figured out that in order to stop the calamity the Extra must die. While his first guess was Kouichi Sakakibara, he killed two other students in an attempt at trial and error. When he met Kouichi he tried to kill him too, also holding him responsible for the death of Sakuragi. Kouichi tries to defend himself while trying to provide information regarding the calamity, which Kazami angrily denies the truth. He overwhelms Kouichi, but Izumi knocks him out before he could finish him off. The blow he suffered, though proved to be fatal as Teshigawara finds out when his body is placed outside by Chibiki.
