Nagisa Shirai is a character from the Mermaid Melody: Pichi Pichi Pitch anime and manga.
If there's one thing that Nagisa is, it's persistent. Even though Hanon has a thing for older men and is still hung up on her crush on Tarou even after he turns her down, this underclassman won't stop working hard to get her attention, whether it's camping out in the middle of the night for tickets to the fireworks show or buying more drinks than he can consume when she's working at the beach shop. He's an immature dork, that's for sure, but soon Hanon begins to see a brave, unbeatable side of him, now if only he'd stop claiming that he was already her boyfriend.
In the AWA fics, Nagisa is a student at the AWA Academy.
Nagisa has dark blue bushy hair and blue eyes. For school he wears the required male uniform, consisting of a white shirt and blue pants. His usual outfit consists of a long sleeved striped shirt with a short sleeve shirt serving as a jacket and knee-length pants. In episode 17, he is seen wearing a tuxedo on a date with Hanon.
Nagisa is very childish, but nevertheless, is brave and likes to try new things to impress Hanon. Compared to Taro, Nagisa has no sort of talent, but he always tries his best to make Hanon laugh, which Hanon admired and eventually learned that it was love he was giving her.
