Sone (Sone 曽根) is one of Kobayashi's neighbors.
Sone has thick eyebrows, and his eyes are usually closed. He has no hair on the top of his head. He is usually seen with a purple shirt.
Sone lives in the apartment above Kobayashi's, numbered 502 in the anime. Due to him not being able to work at his usual location, he had to do his woodworking at his apartment, this causes a lot of loud noises that pain Kobayashi when she had a hangover and cause his neighbors to complain.
In episode 11, Sone gives the Kobayashi household a rooster figurine in exchange for some extra mochi that Tohru pounded.
In chapter 60, Tohru visits Sone for ideas on hobbies. She manages to carve out a parrot figurine using Sone's tools.
