Kurumi's senior (胡桃の先輩 Kurumi no Senpai , lit. Kurumi's upperclassman) was a graduate of Megurigaoka Private High School. Before he graduated, he was a member of the Track and Field Club along with Kurumi, who also had a crush on him.
He was a young man with short, slightly spiked brown hair which reached his neck, and blue eyes. However, his eyes were never shown in both the manga and anime. Since he was in the track and field club, he was usually seen with training clothes. He wore a white shirt, a blue jacket over it, blue shorts, dark blue socks and black training shoes with yellow at some places. Otherwise, he was seen with a normal Megurigaoka High School uniform for boys before he graduated.
He seemed to be kind and caring, which is probably why Kurumi fell in love with him. He appeared to have been athletic, friendly, and had a laid-back personality. Thus making it easy for him to befriend people. He also seemed to be quite popular, as it was seen that he had many friends.

Then, the same situation as before occurred; Kurumi's senior trying to attack her on the rooftop, with Kurumi killing him with her shovel, but this time, after killing him, she began to eat him, wondering if it actually happened. She then answered her own question, thinking that it actually didn't happen, waking up horrified a moment later.
Later that day, while Kurumi was exploring the school, she saw a female zombie and decided to end her. Kurumi gets ready to kill, but then, she saw that from her cell-phone, there was a picture hanging from it, featuring herself and coincidentally Kurumi's senior.

When Megumi, Yuuri and Yuki started blockading the doors as zombies had started to break in, Kurumi's senpai arose just before Kurumi was going to help, shocking her. He then started coming closer to her, eventually making her fall down. As Kurumi saw her senpai as a zombie, she became horrified, but before he could attack, Kurumi grabbed a shovel and killed him.
