Kiyoshi is pale, with scratches on his cheeks and knees, his flower is tall but slagging. His hair, like Hanazuki's, is dominantly black with white areas towards his face and at its ends. His clothes are colored dirty red, and has a white bracelet at the bicep of each arm. He wears a worn out sleeveless shirt covered with stains, shorts that are torn by the ends, and open-toed sandals with lacing that reach a little below his knees. His posture is noticeably hunched even when in a good mood.
Kiyoshi is the Moonflower of Sleepy Unicorn's original moon until he lost control of his moon to the inhabiting unicorns. During the revolt, Noble Unicorn (Sleepy) is his only ally. Twisted claims that the revolt was done because he does not believe in the Moonflower's capability of protecting the moon since the Big Bad attacked. But in Hide and Seek, Sleepy states that Twisted has been against him even before the Big Bad struck.
By the end of the episode, Twisted is defeated by rogue unicorn soldiers and Hanazuki takes Kiyoshi to her moon so he may learn to about growing colored Treasure Trees. Soon after their arrival in Better Together, Twisted comes to the moon looking for Kiyoshi.
After defeating Twisted, Hanazuki escorts Kiyoshi to his moon to help him gain leadership over the unicorns. In Damage Control, he grows his first colorful Treasure Tree on his moon. He reveals he was a part of a small group called the "Garlandians" in the episode Recovery.
- "You're wrong! It's half-empty!"
- —Kiyoshi, Better Together
Kiyoshi is a bitter individual. He is so bitter, he has grown an entire forest of Black Treasure Trees. However, he seems hopeful of Hanazuki and what she has to teach regarding growing a variety of Treasure Trees that can fight off the Big Bad.
He seems to rely on logic and reason more than on emotions. He is highly pessimistic and consider any negative probability as inevitable. In Hide and Seek, when Hanazuki suggested planting treasures to save his moon, his first response was to refuse and run away. In Better Together, regarding the fifty percent probability that Twisted is coming towards Hanazuki's Moon, he says the glass is "half empty" as opposed to Hanazuki's "glass is half full" argument. Later in the episode Kiyoshi blooms pink when Hanazuki is willing to confront Twisted for his sake. The first Treasure Tree he grows other than black is lavender, when he thought of an idea to make his unicorns cooperate despite their unruly and aggressive behavior.
Kiyoshi is adept at growing Black Treasure Trees. It's the only type of tree he has grown his whole life, and he grows them quickly. His fondness of Black Treasure Trees have endowed him the ability to see clues into the past, present and future from the treasures of the Black Trees.
Ever since she met him on Sleepy Unicorn's original moon in "Hide and Seek", she's willing to teach him on how to grow proper treasure trees, as he managed to produce only black ones. Their relationship of now has been short, but somewhat affectionate.
An example of this is how Hanazuki runs out into the open when Twisted Unicorn is searching for them to find Sleepy Unicorn in "Better Together", risking her freedom and possibly her life for him. Further proof of this is when Kiyoshi feels another emotion for the first time when she does this. He turns pink, showing how grateful he is that Hanazuki is willing to do this for him.
Also, in "The Resistance", they get chased into a treasure tree by Twisted Unicorn, and Kiyoshi notices how the tree is the first he saw Hanazuki grow. Then, they use the tree's treasure juices to throw Twisted Unicorn off into a struggle between his emotions, causing him to be frustrated and fly off. When the episode ends, they fist-bump in victory and the screens winks out in the shape of a heart.
He used to be a part of a group called the Garlandians with her and Maroshi. However due to her absense, they've since disbanded. They have a clear history with one another, as shown in Recovery where he quickly recognizes Kiazuki and rushes up to her. Being glad to see her return, after being gone for so long, this implies that Kiyoshi was close to Kiazuki.
After finding out that Kiazuki's moon was destroyed, he becomes guilty over it, believing he should have helped her back then. He wanted to help Kiazuki despite his own moon's problems, which shows that he cares for her wellbeing.
Maroshi was in a group called the garlandians with Kiyoshi and Kiazuki, that later disbanded. Interactions between them were only shown in Big Bad Sickness, but from what we've seen. they appear to be friendly with eachother since Maroshi hugged kiyoshi, the moment they met.
