Honekawa is a teacher at Sainan High and a minor character in the series. He is the homeroom teacher for Class 2-A which is Rito's and most of the main cast classroom.


Honekawa when he was younger.

Honekawa is a wrinkly old man with nearly bald hair and black eyes that are covered by his big round swirl glasses which he is hardly ever seen without. He is always seen wearing a button shirt and loose tie.

It was shown, when he was sprayed by the Modori Skunk, that he was a handsome man when he was younger.[1]



The extent of Honekawa's personality is unclear, but due to his old age, he tends to talk slightly slow and often seen shivering. Due to that he is sometimes seen writing scribbles on the chalk board. On some occasions, he tends to overreact when his students don't take his class seriously.

As shown in To Love-Ru Darkness Chapters 48 and 62, Honekawa is a bit perverted himself, as he does think and maybe obsesses about women's breasts. When Lala temporarily shrunk, he asked "What happened to Boing-Boing Lala-shan?".


Being a minor character he doesn't seem to stand out much in the series doesn't stand out as much, however his major role in it seems to be introducing a new character debuting in the series.

In To Love-Ru Darkness, when he got back pain, this gave Tearju a chance to temporarily take his place to get close to Yami. Thanks to Lala's invention, after some time, his backache decreases so he returns to teaching.


  • Honekawa means "bone, knack, talent" (骨) (bone/hone) and "river, stream" (川) (kawa).


  • Honekawa made a cameo in Mayoi Neko Overrun!.[2]
    • In fact, he is the only male in To Love-Ru to make a cameo in that series.
