"Rin? Oh yeah, 6'2", shark teeth, cries when you call him bitch-baby." - Seijuro, episode 6Rin is rude to the main characters whenever he meets them. He's described as being a swimming savant who can do nothing else. He's very emotional. In fact, his roommate Nitori observes that he is always upset. He claims to hate Haru and attempts to make him kill himself after losing a race (because that's what they do in Australia). He later admits to Nitori that he isn't sure if he hates Haru or loves him.
He is on the Sumezuka team despite barely making it through their hazing. According to their captain Seijuro, he ran off after the paddling. While on the team, Rin tries even harder to avoid the Iwatobi boys and even claims not to know them even when they're screaming his name to get his attention. He is often seen with his roommate Nitori.

- Jabber Jaw
- Deep Blue Sea
- Shark Zone
- Rin was born 2 months early.
- Rin cannot count (Example: when doing sit-ups in episode 16 he counts 28, 29, 23)
- There's a door from Haru's brain to his.
- He confirmed that he's part shark.
