Kei Hanada (花田 慶 Hanada Kei) is supporting character of Handa-kun series. He is a classmate of Sei Handa.



Due to idolizing and over-obsessing Seishuu Handa as a whole, Hanada decided to become Seishuu as well. However, the plan went out pretty badly when everyone in the "Handa Force", including Seishuu, realizes how bad the poem and Seishuu even said that he didn't even wrote a poem not even once, making Seishuu to get furious. And even though he fully copied the eyes and hairstyle of Seishuu, his hideous mouth makes it all the difference, that's why he puts a surgical mask to hide his mouth, mistakenly identified him as the real Seishuu to some people due to his identical dead-fish eyes and hair. But when everyone learned that he was a fraud, the girls and some students calls him as a "phony" or in some cases, "fake Handa'.

When it comes to taking tests, he's using Seishuu's real name instead of his real name.
