Tohru met Natsuno when he walked passed him with a flat tire and offered to fix it for him. Natsuno refuses but Tohru insists. After getting another flat some days later, he visits Tohru again.

A stranger called Tatsumi, who just started living at the Kanemasa mansion offers to retrieve it using a back scratcher. Tohru is grateful and offers him to drop by sometime.

When Natsuno enters Tohru’s room with Tohru’s siblings, their father tells them that Tohru has died. And that he should have seen it coming because he’s actually working at the clinic and knew this epidemic was going around.
Before attending Tohru’s wake, Natsuno receives a late summer greeting card from Megumi which he tears up. Natsuno is very quiet at the wake and asks Tohru’s parents of he can see his face.

He is voiced by Koki Uchiyama in Japanese and Jerry Jewell in English. First father’s surname is Yuuki, however his parents did not get married and he has his mother’s surname, his legal name is Natsuno Koide rather than Natsuno Yuuki as some might assume.
He is one of the main protagonists in the series, a highly intelligent and calm 15 year old boy who lives and attends school in Sotoba. He hates living in the village and would prefer to be in the city. Originally a city dweller, Natsuno reluctantly moved to Sotoba with his parents when they wanted a change of environment. He is usually seen wandering around the bus stop, planning to return to the city one day.
He often exhibits a cold exterior, especially disliking Megumi Shimizu, who has a crush on him. However he is friendly to some, such as the Tanaka children and especially Mutou Tohru, an amiable boy, who persistently tries to become his friend.
After disappearing for a while, he reappeared as a Jinrou, a superior sub-species of Shiki and worked together with Toshio Ozaki in order to annilihate Shiki. He bit Toshio, cancelling Chizuru Kirishiki’s control over him.
In the final episodes of the anime, he falls down, with Tatsumi, into a pit where the dead shiki were disposed into. He lights a bomb and explodes, killing Tatsumi and himself. In the manga, he fell into the pit along with Tatsumi and it was implied that both of them simply died from the fall.
