|Anime:||Episode 1 - "Super Peace Busters"|
Manabu is a middle-aged man who has short gray hair, brown eyes, and glasses.
Manabu is a very serious person who hopes Irène Honma (Manabu's wife) will face reality and get over the tragic loss of Meiko "Menma" Honma (Manabu's daughter). He did not allow Menma's childhood friends to make fireworks for granting his daughter's wish. Later, due to the request of Atsumu "Yukiatsu" Matsuyuki, he finally allowed them to make fireworks. On the day that the fireworks lit, he accompanied his wife to see the fireworks made for Menma.
- "There's no way we could ever forget Meiko, It's fine, so... we'll just have to feel lonely together. You, Satoshi and I - the three of us sharing that sorrow together."
