At first, Haruka idolizes him because his song, Nanairo no COMPASS , saved her and motivated her to become a composer. Haruka convinces herself that Tokiya is HAYATO when they first met each other, but her belief is crushed when she heard that Tokiya is not HAYATO, but his younger twin brother. Even though he treats her coldly, Tokiya has paid a lot of attention to Haruka ever since they first met, wondering why Haruka always tried her best. After Haruka knew his true identity, Tokiya distances himself from her, but his heart is softened by Haruka's kindness when she states that she wants to hear his songs. Tokiya, surprised, finally realizes that he can start from the beginning again and that he will try singing. Ever since then, he saw Haruka differently, romatically, causing him to begin to look at her as a love interest.
As the series progresses, he becomes more tender with Haruka, trying to make up for his harsh treatment of her early on, and also becomes more attuned to her feelings. After it was decided that STARISH would face HEAVENS in an all or nothing battle, Haruka becomes extremely worried at the prospect of STARISH disbanding, and succumbs to the pressure, which Tokiya notices. He becomes concerned for her, and takes her to a festival to remind her that it was important to have fun as well. When he finally gets her to realize that she'd forgotten that the most important thing was to make people happy, he comforted her as she broke down in tears at her failure. He then pulls her into a tender embrace, which surprises her, and he tells her never to take so much on by herself again, proceeding to ask her to share her pain with him whenever she needed to, implying that he would always be there for her.
In season 3, after QUARTET NIGHT proclaims that they intend to fight to keep Haruka as their composer, Tokiya becomes shocked along with the rest of STARISH. Later, as they all reminisce about how wonderful and pure she is, he says that "before he knew it, being apart from her became unthinkable."
In Season 4 Episode 1, after STARISH pull her away from QUARTET NIGHT, Tokiya holds her and says that "she knows how he feels...he feels the say way she does."
