Role in StoryEdit

Katsuya Honda was Tohru Honda's father and Kyoko Honda's husband. He was the only person to understand at all what Kyoko was going through. He met Kyoko at the age of 21 in middle school where he was teaching as an "unmotivated student teacher". However, he was only playing along with everyone else because they expected him to follow in his father's footsteps, but he had no intention at all to become a teacher. He and Kyoko became nearly inseparable, and he always called her "Miss No Eyebrows" as a remark to her Yankee style.

They met over the weekends and talked to each other about nearly everything. He told Kyoko about how he was insecure as a child, and faked the kindly speech he uses to win people over. One day, after Kyoko was released from the hospital, her parent decided to disown her. They had packed her bags and while Kyoko was standing at the door, Katsuya appeared and proposed to her. Kyoko agrees and the two are soon married.

Not many of Katsuya's family members like the prospect of him marrying a former gang member except Katsuya's father, who stands by his son's decision. Their short marriage was a happy one, resulting in the birth of Tohru, whom Katsuya became quite close to.

Katsuya died while on a business trip from pneumonia, leaving Kyoko in a deep depression. Kyoko and Tohru's grandfather were left to care for Tohru, though Kyoko did not remember doing much with Tohru during this time. One day, while seeing a show on TV, Kyoko saw something that made her think of Katsuya and left to head towards the ocean to follow him leaving young Tohru alone. Kyoko did not realize that she'd left Tohru alone until a young girl, no older than Tohru (at the time), and her mother were loudly talking about a train ticket which snapped her out of this trance. Kyoko then returned to Tohru, and hugged her.

At Kyoko's death, she begins to think about her leaving Tohru all alone, how she felt after Katsuya's death. When she dies, and sees Katsuya, she begins crying, Katsuya reaches out to hold her hand and they both reunite once more as a loving couple.

Trivia Edit

*Katsuya's sister and her family (except for their father) are not fond of his marriage with Kyoko and do not seem to like his daughter, Tohru much either.
