Umehara is good friends with Junichi. He is a generally upbeat and cheerful guy. Initially Umehara and Junichi mourn with each other about not being able to get girlfriends. But after Junichi gets a girlfriend, Umehara supports Junichi whenever he can. Umehara often calls Junichi "boss" (japanese: taishou). When Junichi was still single, Umehara and him would often lend each other dirty magazines.
