He appears in Aigis's Social Link event. Kiyoshi is first seen at the strip mall at Iwatodai Station. He asks his grandmother to lend him money for a date tomorrow, which she agrees to.

She gives him the money and he runs off happily.
The protagonist and Aigis follow him. Aigis asks if Kiyoshi gets lonely by himself, confusing him. Aigis concluded that his grandmother is lonely because she has nobody else. Kiyoshi asks if this is a lecture, and Aigis replies she simply wants to know. Aigis asks if he ever visits his grandmother, saying it would ease her loneliness. Kiyoshi dodges the question and tells her to stay out of stuff that doesn’t concern her.
Aigis then asks Kiyoshi what it means to live, confusing him further. Aigis mentions that the bonds between people are what's most important, and this is what his grandmother is slowly losing. Kiyoshi replies he thinks having fun is more important than having bonds with people. Kiyoshi tries to ask Aigis out on a date, although Aigis interrupts him by thanking him and she attempts to leave. Kiyoshi is annoyed, thinking Aigis made a fool out of him, says screw you to her, then runs off.
