Otabe is the second tallest chracter in the story. He has dark grey hair and thick glasses that hide his eyes most of the time.
In Koi Nashi Ai Nashi it is revealed that the reason he wears thick glasses is to hide his beautiful face from stalkers. According to Hijiri Jouran his looks are on the same level, if not higher, than Tsubaki's looks.
When it comes to shady business or the Computer Club, Otabe can be very serious and sometimes scary, however, if it's about Kanoko, he'll act all lovely-dovey and call her 'Kano-tan'. If Tsubaki is around when he looks for Kanoko, they'll end up having a loud discussion. He is physically attracted to girls with a natural look and flat chests.
Otabe is oblivious to Kanoko's attempts to avoid him and talks naturally to her. During the elections, he draws suggestive posters of her that will surely help her get the male votes, and he only shows up to the Sports Festival to shamelessly take pictures of her. He uses his connections to gather all the information he can about her.
Once in the Student Council, Tsubaki is in charge of the Computer Club issues, to avoid Otabe calling just as an excuse to see Kanoko.
Yabuki thinks Otabe is troublesome and even helps Kanoko to get away from him when he’s chasing her. They only seem to talk when they have something to discuss; like Kanoko’s relation to Otabe, the space Otabe was occupying by lying down in their year’s section or the pictures he was taking of Kanoko during the Sports festival.
