Zaimokuza has an unusual appearance. He has grey/white hair that he keeps in a short ponytail, brown or black eyes and glasses.

Personality

Zaimokuza-Yoshiteru

Zaimokuza delusion view of himself

Zaimokuza is considered to be weird, gross, and creepy by most students of Sobu High.

He is a very eccentric character, getting incredibly excited over things he enjoys, particularly anything related to his 8th grader syndrome. He displays a high interest in historical shoguns, magic, and writing (despite the fact he is a terrible writer), and video game creation. He often talks like a movie narrator or with grandiose overtones. He sometimes refers to himself and those around him in the 3rd person and involves them in his fantasy/roleplays. His dream is to become a famous Light Novel author or movie writer and marry a seiyu/voice actress.[1]

His devotion to writing a novel is often mentioned in the Light novels. He also behaves like a professional and famous novel writer, despite the fact he has no accomplishments. During the Cultural Festival his script was used for his class play. He briefly considered being a creative game writer, until he found out the company would own all the rights to his work.[2]

He is quite easy going, being able to bounce back from being criticized by Yukino and Hachiman, and still display his enthusiasm for writing, which Hachiman refers to as a "writer's syndrome".

He is quiet, sensitive, and jealous, especially whenever Hayato or other popular people are around. He also struggles talking to girls.

He, like Hachiman, is a loner and feels most at home around other loners. He is known to have many acquaintances around the arcades in Chiba, but has few friends.

Zaimokuza has a very active imagination, even if it isn't very original (pointed out by Hachiman). During the Athletic Festival he is brought in with Ebina to brainstorm ideas for a fun and unique final contest.

His written script was accepted by his class (2-C) for their class play during the Cultural Festival.

He is seen as a bit wimpy, but shows he is actually quite strong during the Athletic Festival. He pushes Yamato, Ooka, and Tobe away easily with a move he called "Zaimokuza Crusher", and then knocks down the red team's bo-taoshi pole.[3] He demonstrates his strength and size in the Judo competition by teaming up with Hayama and Hachiman and making it to the finals.[4] He and Hayama consistently won 2-0, without Hachiman having to fight.
