Mizuki has a very deranged personality, and is also an admin of a suicide website, Black Aquarium. Murder and death is not something that he fears.
In depth, Mizuki is mentally unstable and while not as malicious as he was before, psychotic. He seems to enjoy inflicting pain on both himself and others, making him a sadomasochist. He seems to be very obsessive and oddly childish as well, usually seen sulking whenever he doesn't get what he wants. He has an unhealthy obsession with his mom and seems to enjoy getting spoiled with love and affection (specifically he enjoys hugs and comfort) as he hasn't gotten any after his mom's death.
Although as the story progresses, Mizuki seems to grow out of his obsession with his mom (although not quite), and have a easier time controlling his outbursts. Although he still loves violence. He's very pushy and quite clingy if seen into. He usually acts without thinking.
While mentally unstable, he's quite brilliant in the brain and has tactical, methodical fighting skills along with a keen cleverness when outsmarting people
Mizuki lived with his mother, Ritsuko Kurashina during his childhood. One day, Mizuki saw his mother commit suicide in her room and saw the storybook named Country of Despair. Mizuki believed his mother didn't die but her soul was living in the Country of Despair and waiting for Mizuki to come with her, he soon tried killing himself so he could go to the Country of Despair with his mother, but soon he realized that he didn't have any despair yet. As such, Mizuki started to take a lot of photos about despair as his "tickets" so he can be able to go to the Country of Despair. Mizuki's mother dead face was his very first photo of his Despair collection.
Chapter 11-70 (Second Season)EditMizuki first appeared in Chapter 14, during the Real Live Game which he joined with another player, in the transmission he tried to kill and torture his partner to gain a lot of views, which Yuuma Mukai could see through his stream. Later, during the Read & Ignore Eradication Misure game he comes to see Yuuma, greeting him and asking him if he would like to eat his raw meat but Yuuma rejects him, then he leaves the slot-machine area and tells Yuuma that he's a boy. A day later, three players requested Mizuki to kill them so they can be freed from the feeling despair, to which he accepted the request. Then Mizuki brought the three players to another area, which Yuuma happened to walk by. When Chiho Fujimaki is nearly killed by Mizuki, he is stopped by Yuuma. Chiho starts crying and Mizuki thinks her crying expression are good so he takes a photo and puts it into his despair collection. After Yuuma notes Mizuki is crazy, he stopped Yuuma from replying to the message, it leaves Yuuma terrified because he would die soon because of it. Suddenly, Mizuki stopped his actions and let Yuuma stay alive and said that he is not the "best prey". Mizuki gives Yuuma's crying photo back to him as the photo is too lame and not good enough for his despair collection.
While Yuuma finally gets the No. 45 stamp and uses it, Mizuki steals Yuuma's stamp and deletes it. Yuuma asks him why Mizuki did it, to which he replies in this way the players will feel even more despair and become part of his despair collection. Mizuki also becomes interested to see how Yuuma's face would look like when he feels despair, however Yuuma remains calm which makes him wonder why he still hasn't feel despair yet, he said it's impossible to change the situation. After Yuuma ended the game with killing Marble, Mizuki realized that Yuuma is the "best prey" that he wanted for a long time, he swears that he must get Yuuma's despair photo and kill him.
A few days later, the Big Flame Festival game begins and Mizuki is in the same group as Yuuma and his friends. While the phones are being exchanged, Mizuki's phone is in Kirika Sakuragawa's hands and he mentions that Kirika is free to look into his phone, but Kirika is too scared to see into Mizuki's phone. When the phones are exchanged for the second time, both Mizuki and Yuuma's phone are exchanged and Mizuki says that they will both see into each others phones together. Mizuki reveals Yuuma's first memories and the fact that he has amnesia. Mizuki also taunts Yuuma by reading the said person's diary entries, exposing Yuuma's misanthropic views, and the fact that he finds the world boring. Yuuma reacts quite violently to that, making a move to snatch his phone back. Mizuki sends Yuuma to the edge as he delivers the final blow, which is the voice recordings of every single grateful message sent to Yuuma, claiming that, "he must've listened to it every night". Yuuma suddenly screams in pain and his scar bleeds out.When Yuuma finally showed his "true" color, Mizuki said he is glad to see his "true" color and replies he likes current Yuuma a lot more than before. Mizuki let Yuuma see his phone and said his phone didn't have anything to see. Soon, Mizuki's phone is ringing and it's showed "Country of Despair" calling him, hearing a woman's voice which make him think it's his mother who's calling him. Then, Mizuki realized that the voice doesn't belong to his mother but a virtual assistant app and he is tricked by Yuuma. Mizuki said he changed his opinion said that instead of like, he hates the current Yuuma a lot more than before. Then, Yuuma explained the actual plot of the Country of Despair, which Yuuma shows that the book has empty pages intended to allow the reader to see through the last two pages together. This causes the two pages to overlay on each other, presenting a different ending. This overlay turns the noose that originally hung from the ceiling into a sword being pointed at God. "God's invitation was for the country of despair. Pietro's unhappiness was the author's own". At the bottom of the overlayed pages is a bar code which was a message to the reader not to die, changing the story from one of despair, to one of hope. Suddenly, Mizuki goes crazy as he can't believe this is the actual story of Country of Despair and he tried to prove this by his own, realized Yuuma didn't said anything wrong and said he will never meet his mother again. Then, Yuuma deleted all of Mizuki's despair collection included his very first photo which is his mother's death face, he is saddened and started to sob due to the fact he can't see his mother anymore. When Mizuki is crying, Yuuma stood in front of him and told him don't act like a crybaby or else he would die here, though it's soon stated by Yuuma that he didn't have any use anymore.
During the SNS Hide-and-Seek, Mizuki joined sides with Yuuma to fight against the hunters, soon he replies Yuuma has changed his life since the Big Flame Festival so he will forever follow Yuuma and work together. Yuuma disagrees and tells Mizuki get out but Mizuki doesn't listen. Later, Mizuki become Yuuma's follower and uses handcuffs to lock Yuuma's right hand so he won't leave him. When the DQN Marble found Mizuki and Yuuma, he saved Yuuma's life by protecting him with his body but he is heavily injured instead. Mizuki requests Yuuma to bring him to the hospital to heals the scar, Yuuma originally doesn't want to do it but due to the handcuffs on his wrists so he is forced to do so. Later, Yuuma succeeds in bringing Mizuki to the hospital and is healed by Tamae Hanada, who is Mizuki's follower. After Mizuki finished the mission that has him to scan his follower's "Marble's mark", he stated that Yuuma is still not saved yet due to Ayame Kamijou is still his follower and hasn't finished the mission yet, Yuuma soon realized Mizuki wanted him to unfollow her so both him and Mizuki's life won't be in danger, but Yuuma doesn't and saved her from her brother, Shoujo Kamijou.After Ayame is saved, he asks her if she want to eat raw meat or not, but she declines, though he said even if she wanted some he wouldn't give her the raw meat. Later, when Mizuki and his group were attacked by the hunters and DQN Marble, both he and Ayame tried to make Yuuma calm down and Mizuki replies that he is very surprised the connection between SNS (Mizuki, Yuuma and Ayame) are way stronger than connection of their actual family members. Then, Yuuma drives the car and tells Mizuki and Ayame to die together with him and Mizuki has no problem with it. When another new mission was announced, along with Yuuma and Ayame, Mizuki has gone to see Mitsuru Kariya to reunite the follower once again, and they completed reunion except Yuuma due to the fact Mitsuru despises him so much. After Kirika's name is listed in the death list, along with Yuuma they went to "kill" the DQN Marbles. Both Mizuki and Yuuma attempted to "kill" DQN Marbles, while failing they find out the solution of how DQN Marble knew which were players. After Yuuma learned Kirika's last words meant, he and Mizuki tried to changed their GPS position from Japan to Hawaii and it worked. Though when the last DQN Marble was about to fall off from the Tokyo Tower, Yuuma and Mizuki set their GPS back to normal and took revenge for the players who died at DQN Marbles' hands, they defeated DQN Marble and Mizuki saved Yuuma from from falling down with the DQN Marble. Later, along with Yuuma, Ayame and Chiho went to the Real Account company building, in order to obtain the "Player Revive" technology to destroy Real Account. After Yuuma found Nanako Yuzuhara's corpse, Mizuki tells Yuuma that she is dead but Yuuma can't believe it and punched him. Shortly after this, Nanako calls Yuuma on the phone and replies she is in Real Account world now. When Yuuma arrives at the big gate, Marble announced another new mission where every players returns to the place where they started the death games. Because of lack of time and finding the technology, Yuuma decided to ask everyone for who would stay with him, Mizuki answering yes and said he would be happy to see Yuuma's dead expression and he will die together with him. Mizuki and other has to try their best to thinking what the password of the big gate would be, until Yuuma finally figured out the password and the actual place of where the start point the mission meant. After it is revealed the death games are taking place in real world, Mizuki mentions why was he so idiotic to not realize about it until now when there's so many things can prove they're not in the internet world but in real world (Wounds, bloods, feeling). While Yuuma is trying finding Nanako, Mizuki found a small entrance, entered it and saw Marble and other players were here to celebrating the end of SNS Hide-and-Seek.
