If you look at other questions i answered what -Chan means but -kun is used to show endearment towards boys. Otherwise it's used to show the person using it knows them well.

What does -kun at the end of a name mean in Japanese?

"Kun" is a diminuitive. That is, it asserts a degree of familiarity, or in other cases, social superiority. A teacher may refer to his students, or a boss to those who work under him, with "kun." Likewise, it may be used among friends. It is not only used for males, just as 'chan' is not only used for females. Kun is not something you would attach to the name of your social superiors.

Is Ritsuka-kun a boy or girl?

It's obvious when it stands -kun behind the name. Ritsuka-kun is a boy. Well, I'm going to change this answer. Just because the name is Ritsuka-kun doesn't mean it's a boy. It goes the same way for "chan," because it is used for little girls/boys aka Tadashi-chan can be a boy even though "chan" is in the name. the suffix "kun" for girls can be used when a male coworker is addressing a younger female coworker, or when a girl is a tomboy. (ex: Akira-kun) I hoped this helped. :)
