About Ichimatsu

Ichimatsu Matsuno - The Lone Wolf of the Matsuno Brothers

Ichimatsu Matsuno is a character from Osomatsu-san, a 2015 comedy anime television series by Pierrot, based on Fujio Akatsuka's 1962 manga series, Osomatsu-kun. Celebrating Akatsuka's 80th birthday, the series follows the sextuplet Matsuno brothers from the original series as adults and features more adult-oriented humor compared to the original. Though the brothers are visually identical, Ichimatsu (the fourth-oldest of the six) is determined by Akatsuka to be the most serious and strong-willed sextuplet. As an adult, Ichimatsu still shares a similar appearance to his brothers, but he can be differentiated from them by his half droopy eyes, slightly ruffled hair, hunched back, and two cowlicks. His preference of cats to people causes his brothers see him as incapable of friendship, despite the truth that Ichimatsu is just not confident enough to actively make new friends.

Choromatsu is one of the stand-out characters against the other brothers alongside the eldest brother Osomatsu. His mature demenour and take-charge nature is something that he uses to characterize himself early on, setting him apart as an individual against the other sextuplets. Choromatsu is often at Osomatsu's side, becoming the most prominent duo is the series. Despite knowing better, Choromatsu goes along with Osomatsu's various schemes leading to the hijinks seen in the Osomatsu-san anime.

Choromatsu usually plays the straight man against his brothers' over-the-top antics and seems to be the only one truly concerned that they have reached adulthood without having a job. He considers himself the most mature out of all the brothers, often remarking that he should be the eldest and in charge over Osomatsu. However, Choromatsu relaxes his somewhat serious demenour around attractive women (particulary Nyaa and Totoko) which is his biggest weakness.

Despite his maturity and intelligence in many areas of his life, Choromatsu is not a crafty or secretive person and is poor at hiding his thoughts and emotions. He has a tendency to overthink things and get in a panic. In episode 12 of the 2015 anime, Osomatsu and Totoko make comments about how his serious and by-the-book way of doings things is not his "true personality" which is further revealed throughout the show.
