Kokomi Teruhashi (照橋心美, てるはし ここみ lit. Teruhashi Kokomi) is one of the main characters of the series . She is a student in Saiki Kusuo's class and she is considered very attractive by both women and men, who often stop and stare upon seeing her. She was played by Hashimoto Kanna in the live action film of the series.
Appearance She has a lean body with long, flowing blue hair that reaches just past her shoulder and blue eyes. She is mostly seen with her hair untied and occasionally wears dresses and skirts whenever she goes out of town. In school, she wears the PK uniform that a standard female student wears, a long-sleeved shirt with a ribbon on her chest, and she wears a short green skirt with tight black stockings on her long legs. The skirt is quite short, so the majority of her thighs and legs are revealed.
When Kokomi was first introduced, she was shown to be a vain person and a gold digger (a person who only marries people for their money) who is good at manipulating boys who would easily abide to her will and demand by using her gorgeous looks she was born with. Even if not necessary, she gets discounts at every shop she goes. Whenever she's in trouble, someone will always be willing to help her out and most of the times she gets out of her mistakes with just a smile. Ironically, though she always corrects these and calls them not being an arrogant person but it is because she is gorgeous that is why it is naturally occurring to her. Being flirted with was a natural happening to her so she is able to get away too easily with just a simple rejection without hurting the other party.
Because of her good looks, Kokomi is used to the extreme reactions she gets from the people around her. Because of this, it puzzles her why Saiki Kusuo is not startled or star struck by her beauty . Due to her petty personality and hidden arrogant nature, she started to go after Kusuo until she had realized that she instead have fallen for him. She also refuses to believe that some people can be unfazed by her beauty, and will takes extreme measures in order for the other party to acknowledge her. However, since the girl in question has never received a single insult in her entire life, she becomes upset when Saiki Kusuke (Kusuo's brother) insults her, stating that he doesn't care how beautiful she is and he only thinks of her as a monkey like everyone else.
Kokomi is also prideful, which is usually covered by her angelic facade. As such, she doesn't want to admit it at first that she likes Kusuo, and eventually stops herself from saying that she does even though the people around her see how she's truly into him. Despite her extreme Kusuo-seeking personality, Kokomi has never been seen getting angry at others. However, she can be competitive when people talk about beauty, an example being when she ordered two ramen for her and Imu and, despite the two being hailed as beauty queens, Kokomi was still number one for she was given an extra-large bowl while Rifuta Imu was given a normal bowl of ramen.
She had a good relationship with Teruhashi Makoto (Kokomi's older brother). However, she hates him and never speak to him again due to him doing a terrible thing to Kusuo.
However, she gets redeemed at the later chapters when she was considering on becoming Saiko Metori's wife when the man first appears, but after comparing the rich boy with Kusuo, the psychic's face appears in her mind, implying that she has developed deep feelings for him, which is enough to suppress her gold digger impulse.
Kokomi was first seen in Episode 1 walking on a street when she noticed Saiki Kusuo whom she recalls as Saiki Kunio. Thinking that Kusuo was having a such a dull summer, she felt sorry for him and thought that talking to him will make his summer better. Kokomi greeted Kusuo who just merely gave her a bow as a reply. Dumbfounded by Kusuo's brief and unfazed reaction, she started to try getting his attention. But no matter what she tried, Kusuo continued to ignore her. When Kusuo suddenly disappeared in front of her, she thought that Kusuo might be an illusion. Remembering her own words from before, she then concluded that she was the one hallucinating about Kusuo and believed that she had fallen for him.
Over time she manages to get closer to Saiki with him helping her after she collapses and accidentally saying "Oh!" indirectly to her. She starts to become less arrogant and truly falls in love with Saiki.
