Kazuyoshi (Switch) is one of the three members of the school support club, the Sket Dan. He is the club's secretary.
Kazuyoshi is a member of the supportive club of Kaimei High School, Sket Dan. He appear as the club's secretary and usually seen carrying his laptop whenever he goes, using it to "speak" for him. He wanted to be called Switch, based on his brother's old nickname. Switch took on his brother's "identity" after an unfortunate incident which resulted in the death of his brother. Switch blamed himself for this incident, thus leading him to attempt to take the place of his brother.
Kazuyoshi was created by Kenta Shinohara as one of the main characters in the Sket Dance franchise. He first appears in Sket Dance volume 1: Paint Mask and episode 1: The Academy SKETs. In the anime adaptation of Sket Dance, he is voiced by Tomokazu Sugita while his younger self (not past self) is voiced by Aki Kanada.
Kenta Shinohara stated that Switch was named for a musician, Kazuyoshi Nakamura (中村 一義) in the one shot manga. He changed it to make a reference to Kazuyoshi Saito (斉藤 和義).
In the Switch Off story, Switch has a very dramatic change in his appearances and personality. This will be split up in his past and present self.
It's assumed that when Sawa and Masafumi has left a void in his life, Switch has resorted to play SIM games to regain those feelings of love.
When someone new comes along for a request, he will explain a lot about the person such as their club affiliation, blood type, and astrology. During the White Gibbon request from Moe, Switch has placed a tracking device on the gibbon, and he relays the location to his club members, Bossun and Hime. During the kidnap of Hime by Kitbitsu, Switch immediately finds the locationg of the train station that has park nearby when Bossun asks him.
Switch has an amazing ability to find knowledge in his laptop. During the duel that Reiko and Switch has to find out if ghosts do exist, he interviews the anime otaku, the news reporter, and a friend. He gathers all that data for Bossun who figures out the ghost's identity.
