Kyoya Kisaragi is the younger brother of Ritsu Kisaragi and childhood friend of Kanade. He is a second year student at Seiso thus his shirt is embossed with the green colour of the second year students. It should be noted that unlike in the first Kiniro no Corda year colour specialization has changed: red for first years, green for second years and blue for third years. Also the anime specialized in the summer uniforms, meaning that majority of the uniforms are white and blue mixed with the year colour specializations.


Although he acts like a rebel and tends to find things bothersome, he somehow always ends up taking care of Kanade and feels like he is always being pulled up by her. He gets the impression that people compare him to his brother, Ritsu, and he hates that because he eventually got the feeling that he will never be as good as him. Because of the comparisons made between him and his brother, Kyoya started to play the violin less and less, and almost quit at one point.


When Kyoya was a child, it seemed that he enjoyed playing the violin together with Ritsu and Kanade. Ritsu later decides to go to Seiso Academy and left Kyoya and Kanade behind. After Ritsu left, Kyoya somewhat changed and now doesn't like playing the violin as much as back then.

When he was a child he also got compared to Ritsu a lot and people would be asking him why he couldn't play just like his big brother. Because people were always comparing him and his brother, Kyoya started to feel that he would never be as good as Ritsu and doesn't understand why Ritsu chose him as the first violinist for the third selection of the concours.
