Saika is popular among his peers. He has his own fan club comprised mainly of girls, who address him as prince for his feminine personality. He is quite popular with both genders and mentioned to be on par with Hayato in popularity.
Saika seems to have a good relationship with his club-mates. He is shown to be a capable club president and able to manage his members how he wants.

Hachiman often has 'romantic thoughts' about Saika, and quickly stops himself from 'falling for the Totsuka route' after reminding himself that Saika is a male. Saika is one of the few people who truly wants to be closer friends with Hachiman, despite Hachiman's tendency to push others away. Furthermore, at the summer camp Saika is shown to sometimes dream about Hachiman, mumbling Hachiman's name in his sleep.
Saika is one of the few to know the real reason of the roof incident during the Cultural Festival, though he believes Hachiman has his reasons for acting the way he does and ultimately wants a good outcome. After the athletic festival, when their entire class shows their dislike for Hachiman, he still socializes with him. He admires Hachiman for his true, kind personality.

Hayato and Saika seem to be on friendly terms. Saika and Hayato participated as the lead roles in Hina's play, an adaptation of the story "The Little Prince", though Hachiman was originally supposed to be in Saika's place.
Once Hayato tried to assist the Service Club with Taishi's request, but this ended poorly for Hayama. Hachiman along with Yoshiteru burst out laughing, Saika tried to stop them from laughing at Hayama but struggled to hold his own laughter. Hayato notices but has no hard feelings for Saika.

Saika occasionally hangs out with Zaimokusa. In Volume 3, Zaimokuza accompanied Hachiman and Saika to the arcade and to the theater. Saika gave Zaimokusa a picture of the three. Saika also extended his hand in friendship stating that "a friend of Hachiman's is his friend as well". Zaimokuza initially thought Saika was a girl at first until learning otherwise. Saika is not put off by Zaimokuza's tendencies and gets along fine with becoming the latter's first friend.
