Takashi Komuro (小室孝,Komuro Takashi) is the main protagonist of the series. He is a high school second-year and the leader of the main group of survivors from Fujimi Academy. He is a childhood friend of both Saya Takagi and Rei Miyamoto, and while he has strong feelings of love for Rei he has also shares intimate feelings for Saeko Busujima as well. Takashi is not a very skilled fighter, but it has been shown that he can handle a gun because of Kohta Hirano. He is also shown to have good leadership skills, which often hold his group together in dire situations.


Takashi has been friends with Saya since they were in Kindergarten.[4]Although Rei is a year older than Takashi, he was best friends with her from the time they were both small children. Rei made a promise to marry him when they were children,[5] but, due to Takashi's inability to admit his feelings for her, she turned her attention away from him and towards Hisashi instead. Shortly before the Outbreak, Rei began dating Hisashi, and Takashi, realizing he had waited too long, was sad that Rei chose Hisashi over him.


In the time before the Outbreak, Takashi is laid-back and does not mind skipping class.[6] His casual nature can also make him hesitant, evidenced by the fact that he did not act on his feelings for Rei until it was too late. His passionate feelings are displayed when he is genuinely depressed by Rei choosing Hisashi over him.[5] Takashi becomes more serious after the Outbreak and begins to exhibit qualities of a leader. His resolve to protect Rei and everyone else earns him respect despite his own feelings of inadequacy. He is usually kind to the other members of his group, and he does not hesitate to save people who are in serious trouble, such as Alice Maresato when she is attacked by "them".[7] During the initial Outbreak, Takashi fights strictly for survival, but, as time passes, he begins to show a willingness to fight for himself and the group rather than just for the need to survive.[8] Saya has mentioned that he and Kohta Hirano are likely to snap if their situation after the Outbreak continues and they have to keep killing things that look like people.[9]
