Nomozaki appears as a young man with dark long hair. His face is similar to that of Kakine Teitoku. His appearance in a colored illustration of Volume 11 of Toaru Majutsu no Index, where he and Tsushima appears as background characters in the Amakusa Christians' submersible, are quite different. Here he is wearing a suit and he appears much more "Kakine Teitoku-like".
When his appearance is recycled, his clothes are redesigned. Now he sports a v-neck sweater with a white collar shirt underneath. He also now wears light colored pants.
Not much separates him from his comrades. In spite of his apparent marriage, he shares the perverted tendencies of the male Amakusa Christians. In fact, his lamenting of the fact that Itsuwa has hidden large breasts implies that his wife likely has smaller breasts than her.
Toaru Majutsu no IndexEdit
Orsola Aquinas Rescue ArcEdit

In the manga adaptation, he plays a role where he and the other Amakusa Christians use wires to restrain the members of the Agnese Forces before they overwhelmed by their sheer numbers. He and the other Amakusa Christians later follow the plan concocted by Stiyl Magnus, Tatemiya Saiji, and Kamijou Touma, act as decoys while they distribute Stiyl's rune cards to create a large magic circle and the pretend to be defeated by the Agnese Forces.
In the anime adaptation, despite his other comrades making small cameo appearances, there is no indication that Nomozaki's character even appears.

He appears in the colored illustration of the 11th Toaru Majutsu no Index light novel volume alongside Tsushima after the Amakusa Christians rescue Kamijou Touma, Lucia, and Angelene from the Adriatic Sea. Both of them however are unnamed background character that would later be recycled for the artist’s design of them on their proper debut.
Acqua of the Back ArcEdit
- Main article: Acqua of the Back Arc
Nomozaki properly debuts in the novel from where this story arc is based, as one of the named Amakusa Christians. In the story arc, the Amakusa Christians are sent out by the Anglican Church to protect Touma from Acqua of the Back.
He has only one notable scene where he is mentioned. He is first seen when he and the rest Amakusa Christians spy on Itsuwa and Touma from behind a nearby building. He and the rest of the males there gather around Tatemiya Saiji as he describes Itsuwa's greatest weapon to getting Touma which has yet to use, her breasts. Nomozaki mutters to himself that breasts should be a bit smaller with a hint of regret and disappointment. He likely went like all the other Amakusa Christians that spied on the two after Saiji kicked a soccer ball on Touma's head to force it to bump on Itsuwa's breasts which irked the nearby Misaka Mikoto—run away and leave without a trace.
If the illustration is any indication, Nomozaki apparently joined in the hard fought battle against Acqua of the Back, and later rallied to the side of Kanzaki Kaori after she called on the Amakusa Christians to help her defeat Acqua of the Back.
British Royal Family ArcEdit
- Main article: British Royal Family Arc
Nomozaki first appears during Itsuwa's bout of depression after the mix-up in the airport where instead of receiving Touma and Index, she instead receives Sphynx instead. Here, Nomozaki tries to cheer the drunken Itsuwa and at the same time subdue Ushbuka, furious at Itsuwa for drinking his Potato Baron, an alcoholic drink he had hidden. He is likely present when, after Isahaya says that the spiky-haired boy is coming, the spiky-haired Saiji appears and is promptly propelled by Itsuwa into the air after flipping the table in a bout alcohol-fueled rage.
He and the others likely continue to participate in the missions that were given to the Amakusa Christians of the British Halloween.
English Civil WarEdit
- Main article: English Civil War
During the calm before the storm, the Amakusa and the rest eat to restore the stamina they lost from the fleeing and battling. While Itsuwa is flustered on what she should do with getting close to Touma, Saiji appears having apparently gotten the Great Spirit Revealing Maid outfit. Saiji reveals that the designer was from London, as such he picked one up just after the coup d'etat started, to which Itsuwa just freaks out. Seeing this, Kanzaki lets out a sigh of relief, believing that her own maid outfit was lost back in the ensuing chaos of evacuating the Necessarius Women's Dormitory. But Saiji reveals that he also picked up both the Fallen Angel Maid and the Fallen Angel Ero Maid from the dormitory, much to Kanzaki's befuddlement. The Amakusa men, including Nomozaki, then started talking about Kanzaki having other more erotic maid outfits, infuriating her even more. This was apparently because they have never seen their Priestess in a Fallen Angel Ero Maid outfit. All the discussion about maid outfits reached the ears of the Agnese Forces and even Sherry Cromwell and Orsola Aquinas.
Nomozaki and the other Amakusa Christians are present during the Battle of Buckingham Palace. When the Griffin Sky arrives to aid Carissa, Kanzaki orders the Amakusa Christians to split into teams to deal with Carissa and the Griffin Sky mobile fortress. Kanzaki orders the Amakusa Christians to split into teams to deal with Carissa and the Griffin Sky mobile fortress. Ushibuka, Kouyagi, and Nomozaki were the one who were ordered to do so, but doubts if they can get through against the Griffin Skies as they have giant shields. Regardless, the Amakusa Christians quickly do as their told, and though one of which was not taken down, Kanzaki was able to use it to her advantage. Swinging the lance it had to hit the other Griffin Sky mobile fortresses and attack Carissa. Kanzaki later encourages them to make teams in order to increase their attacks on the Griffin Skies, to which the Amakusa Christians do so quickly.
After the battle, Nomozaki, as part of the Amakusa Christians likely later treat the wounded after the end of the coup d’état. When the conversation shifts from Kanzaki getting more debt from Touma after his assistance in beating Carissa and ending the coup to Kanzaki wearing the Fallen Angel Ero Maid as repayment, Nomozaki and Isahaya join in the conversation. Kanzaki then scolds them for joining in the conversation in spite of their age.
He and the others may have also gathered around Index after Fiamma of the Right took away the external controller for her John's Pen Mode, as well as Touma declaring to hunt down Fiamma of the Right.
World War III ArcEdit

As a member of the Amakusa Christians, he was likely deployed during the Battle of Dover Strait against the French forces.
Shinyaku Toaru Majutsu no IndexEdit
- Main article: Homecoming Arc
Nomozaki isn't mentioned but he is likely present along with hundreds of other people in St. George's Cathedral to watch Tatemiya Saiji attempt a sword catching technique with Itsuwa. After several failures and the suggestion that the bamboo blade might be throwing Itsuwa's timing off, Kouyagi offered her a metal imitation sword to try using, to Saiji's dismay.
Toaru Majutsu no Index SS: Necessarius Special Admission TestEdit
In spite of not being mentioned at all in in the sidestory, it is likely that he participated in all the enterprises that the Amakusa Christians took in the story.

Like most of the Amakusa Christians, Kouyagi is trained in the style of combat and magic inherited from generations of secrecy, and is particularly effective working in a team. Like most of the Amakusa Christians, he uses a Western weapon. His weapon of choice is a longsword.
