"A friend is... someone who walks with them even if they follow a different path! Someone who can bear the burden of their sins! Isn't that what it means to be a true friend!?" - Yoshitake
Yoshitake Tanaka (田中 ヨシタケ Tanaka Yoshitake) is the blonde character of the main trio. He usually goes along with Hidenori's schemes, much to Tadakuni's disapproval. In episode 1, it is stated by Hidenori that Yoshitake has a part time job. It is also revealed in episode 2 that he has an older sister.
Yoshitake has a slim and handsome appearance, giving the impression of a cool guy. His blond hair, spiked backwards, is his most distinctive feature. He is the only one out of the trio of main characters who does not always wear the school tie in and out of school.
As Rubber Shooter, Yoshitake had brown hair and wore a black long-sleeved shirt under a plain white t-shirt, blue shorts, and a red scarf. The most noticeable part of his outfit was his trademark mask. He fought bullies by aiming and shooting rubber bands from both hands, earning him the title of "Rubber Shooter".
As a child, he adopted the "Rubber Shooter" persona in order to protect weaker kids from bullies and assisting the kids when necessary. The "Rubber Shooter" persona was forgotten as Yoshitake grew older; he only brings back his persona when playing with rubber bands. Yoshitake likes to engage in immature acts and conversations with Hidenori and gets himself into trouble quite often. Despite his bad-boy looks, Yoshitake is quick-witted and smart, as shown in episode 3 of the anime when he and his friends played trivia with ping pong.

Hidenori and Tadakuni Edit
His two best friends, he interacts with them more than any other character, often at Tadakuni's house, and making trouble with Hidenori.
