Himouto! Umaru-chan Wiki

Koichiro Ebina (海老名 公一郎 Ebina Kōichirō?) is the older brother of Nana Ebina in Himouto! Umaru-chan.


Koichiro has short dark brown hair that is typically tied up in a red-and-white hair tie on the top of his head.

He is usually seen with a chef's outfit on with a red scarf, his chef's hat shadowing his face to the point where it's impossible to see any facial features except his eyes.


Being a Master Chef, Koichiro is always serious whenever he's working. He has a strict and serious personality, despite that he's easy to embarrass shown when Taihei Doma complimented him as his face immediately turned red and steam started pouring out of his head with a workmate of him claiming him to be a Tsundere embarrassing him even more, much like his younger sister Nana Ebina.

He's a passionate about his occupation as a cook and even asked Taihei if he wanted to work in their restaurant, showing that he had respect towards those who knew how to cook and is good at it.
