Chino is a slim young boy with short, almost shaved, black hair, with a widow's peak, and slightly short sideburns. He has slanted, large gray eyes, very thin eyebrows and a mildly round nose. His skin color is that of a light tan.
Chino dons a simple outfit. He has a white t-shirt covering his upper body. The shoulders are colored in a dark blue, almost black, as well as the neck. At the end of the sleeves the t-shirt regains its original white color. He wears light green pants reaching down to his knees, having part of the top covered by the white shirt. Due to the constant rain in Ska Village, Chino wears yellow rain boots with a lighter color at the bottom.
Chino holds a grudge towards the "demons" of Ska Village for making it rain constantly. He is always attempting to kill them by throwing rocks at them. When he first met Haru Glory, he tells him to leave him alone so he can get rid of the demons. However, when Haru stops Chino from throwing a rock at a frog, Chino gets mad and tells him that he does not know anything of what is going on, and runs away. As stated by Haru, Chino only bullied the frogs because they are powerless, reflecting what the Thunder Man was doing to the Ska villagers. Ever since the rain started, Chino has not placed a single smile on his face, as stated by his mother. However, his whole personality changes when Haru, Elie and Plue stop the rain. He smiles and becomes great friends with the frogs. He also says that he wants to be just like Haru when he grows up. When Haru and the others get ready to leave, Chino gets sad but understands why, and wishes them good luck on their journey.
Dancing Thunder arc
Chino is throwing a rock at a fog, calling it a demon, when Haru Glory, the current Rave Master, is walking by the area. He falls to the ground when Haru, unnoticed, comes behind him suggesting that he should carry an umbrella when its raining. Haru laughs at him, but Chino just turns his head around ignoring Haru. When Haru places Plue on Chino's head, he looks at it with a shocking expression. Second later, he asks Haru if he was from around here, to which Haru denies. Annoyed, he yells at Haru and Plue, ordering them to leave. He looks at a frog and calls it a demon. He picks a rock up and gets ready to throw it at a frog, but before he is able to throw it, Haru grabs his hand. He then runs away stating that Haru does not know anything of what is happening.
Chino returns to the hotel his mother, Lasagna, owns. He sees Haru coming in a points at him telling his mother that it was him the one who tried to stop his attempt to get rid of the demons, and the one who got his clothes dirty. However, Lasagna just sends him to his room.Chino looks out the door when he hears Elie is headed to where the thunder man is located. After Haru and Elie leave, Chino follows them with Haru's Ten Commandments. He calls for Haru's attention, and hands Haru his sword. He tells Haru that if he is going to defeat the thunder man he will need it. However, Haru states that he will only go there to get Elie back. Furthermore, he says that the thunder man and Elie must have some type of connection. Chino then question if Elie is part of the Demon Card organization, to which he rapidly denies. When Chino tells Haru that the man of thunder is part of Demon card, Haru begins to understand the situation. Chino hands Haru his Ten Commandments. Before Haru leaves, Chino and him make a promise. Haru vows to make the rain stop, and in return Chino has to stop picking on the defenseless frog. The two become friends.
Once Haru and Elie defeat Go and Rosa, the rain stops. Chino's smile returns when he sees the blue clear sky, just like Haru promised. He notices that Haru and Elie had returned and runs towards them. He thanks them, and complements Haru's strength. Before Haru and the others leave Ska Village, Chino questions if there is something wrong with Plue, since all he does is sleep. Elie and Haru tell him that he is just tired. Chino says his farewells to Haru, Elie and Plue as they head to Tremolo Mountain.
Lasagna is Chino's mother as well as the owner of Hotel Ska. Just like any mother would do, she takes care of Chino and worries about him. When she saw Chino's smile for the first time over so many years, she broke down in tears of joy.
Chino views Haru Glory as a hero ever since Haru defeated Go and Rosa, and made the rain stop. Chino first met Haru while trying to kill a frog, or, as he calls them, the demons. At first, they had a rocky encounter, since Haru had no idea of the current situation. However, after Haru made a promise to him and Chino made a promise to Haru, they became great friends. When the rain stopped and Haru returned to the village, Chino happily runs towards him and calls him his role model. He also states that when he grows up he wants to be just like Haru.
Chino refers to Elie as a sister. When Elie left to fight the thunder man, he acknowledged her strength. After Elie and Haru defeated Go and Rosa, and return to the village, Chino greets them with a big smile, and even calls Elie his big sister.
