Kohei Yamashita is an aerialist who repeatedly misses his partners in his trapeze act. He blames the newly recruited foreign circus artists and grows distant and distrusting of them. Due to the stress of getting his act together for an upcoming performance, he has developed a sleep disorder and anxiety problems. He is a third generation circus performer after his father and grandfather. As a child, he learned to distance himself from other children because he had to constantly move with the circus. Because of this, he couldn't develop trust in strangers. He realizes that he was the one messing up the stunt after watching a video of his practice. He is represented by a penguin.
