Rouichi is an invisible Kirin in Little Hero series. His concept is based on a real person's characteristic (Read more below)
Rouichi is a shy boy, he fell in love with Kiyoshi. Unfortunately, Kiyoshi could not understand love.
This painting was based on true event when Kiyoshi notice Rouichi existence while no one notice him.
Rouichi was being shy and sensitive to female touch, his whole body especially his ears would turn red. He could not stand properly whenever Kiyoshi touch him.
The Kirin theme was based on Luna New Year event.
In real life story, Kiyoshi notice Rouichi was the only one who give Rouichi the chance to speak up during the preparation on the event, while everyone did not notice his existence. During the event, Rouichi wore the Kirin head and danced with Kiyoshi. Therefore, in Little Hero Series, Rouichi will be surround by events and festivals, especially his Kirin head.

A painting series was created long time ago based on this story as well, it is called Dị Lân. The series continue every Luna New Year festival. From now on Little Hero will carry on the story.
Rouichi is the pure/clean/innocent boy who is actually clear in mind. In real life, he appears after Little Hero’s time, which means when Little Hero already turned back to Kiyoshi. Even though in Kiyoshi's time, everything is so depressful but Rouichi's pureness has helped clear Kiyoshi's mind somehow. Rouichi is one of the reasons that Kiyoshi keep up her hope that everything will be alright. He is like a lucky charm to her. [Bonus about how lucky he is] he can randomly pick up money flying outside the window, on the street, hanging on the tree...]
The different between other people is that his has no interest in anything; a boring person. However, he has a kindest heart. He tried to notice every existing things around him knowing that no one can see him. He cannot get in any drama conflict even if he tried; a complete different characteristic from Kiyoshi's. In real life, he is like an invisible person. No one notice him even Kiyoshi had no idea about his existence at first. But then an event happened that Kiyoshi turned to recognize Rouichi. Kiyoshi helped Rouichi become recognized able and fit in with others. While Kiyoshi tried to protect his pureness, she helped herself from getting into conflict with others. Kiyoshi often describes Rouichi as a blank sheet of paper. His appearance cannot disturb anyone else. HE SERIOUSLY IS INVISIBLE.
The similarity about his characteristic and the others is that his is a carefree person. He is carefree in a totally different way, he cannot start a conflict or feel negative about anyone nor anything.
If you just want to have a friend being there with you, without disturbing what you are doing.
