Physical appearance Edit

Kentaru Mitsuba Editon

Kentaru in his work outfit

Kentaru is short and plump, as opposed to his wife, who is of average height and much slimmer than her husband. When at home, he wears a blue dressing gown with a belt, but when at work, he wears a brown coat, a white shirt, a blue tie, brown trousers, brown shoes and a brown and gold belt. He has short hair and thick eyebrows.

Personality Edit

Kentaru is a light drinker and sometimes goes too far, but he is always with his family to support them and keep everything going smoothly. Although he gets angry like everybody else, he isn't as short-tempered as his wife.

Relationships Edit

Family Edit

Kentaru gets on well with his family, and although he seldom has much time, he does try to spend

time with them (for instance, when he showed his new Android off to Hattori and the gang). He has an good, healthy relationship with his wife, but they do argue like the average couple, once when they argue about the car breaking down; Kentaru makes his wife cry after snapping at her that he doesn't care about how her friends' husbands' treat them.

Kentaru is close to Kenichi, but he doesn't like it when he gets low marks. In one episode, he, Kenichi and Shinzo had a bit of a tiff over an electronic logic game.

Hattori and Shinzo Edit

Kentaru gets on well with Hattori and Shinzo, but he can be strict with them. In one episode he loses his confidence because he feels that Hattori is more important than him; Hattori however gets him back to normal.

Other Ninjas Edit

Kentaru sees Tsubame as a good homemaker and relishes her food. He is, however, like his wife, misled by Kemumaki's pretending to be a goody-goody-two-shoes.

History Edit

Kentaru met a young woman whom he soon married. They had a
