Neku Sakuraba is the 15-year old, anti-social, main protagonist of The World Ends With You. He finds solace in graffiti but has trouble developing relationships with people. Everyone has problems opening up at some point in their lives. However, he believes that society imposes its values on the individual. Despite his negativity and outlook on the world, he is extraordinarily imaginative. It shows through his clothing. He wears a black sleeveless shirt with an indigo strip down the middle outlined in gold, a yellow sweatband on his left wrist, white shorts, and shoes that match his sleeveless shirt. Most importantly, he always wears indigo headphones. He drowns out the world, seeking answers from within. When the only thing you can remember is your name, you must find inner strength.
“All the world needs is me. I got my values… so you can keep yours, all right?” — Neku Sakuraba
