A member of Anti-Skill, he is first seen along with Sugiyama Edao another member of Anti-Skill during the Academy City Invasion Arc, and is most notably known to be a witness to Accelerator murdering a Hound Dog, which turns Accelerator into a wanted suspect.[1]


In the anime adaptation, Ryouta is shown to to have an air of maturity. Having a prominent jaw, sporting short cut hair, and having an unshaven look to his face.


Not much is known about Ryouta, however, he is known to be working in Suzuyama High School and is part of the 84th branch of Anti-Skill.[1] It is also shown that he at least knows Yomikawa Aiho.[2]

Saigou (background) and Edao (foreground), witness the terror that is the Accelerator.

Ryouta along with his partner Sugiyama Edao first appear during the invasion to help a wounded Hound Dog who escaped Accelerator's massacre in the Third Resource Recycling Processing Facility. Here, they are unaffected by Vento of the Front's Divine Punishment spell as both of them have overslept and were unable to communicate with their colleagues through the use of the communication lines, believing it to be a simple case machine trouble.[3]

After responding to a call by the Hound Dog, their van is accidentally destroyed by Accelerator after he is angered by the Hound Dog's taunting him. Shaken by the event, they are unable to respond in time, and only discover that both the Hound Dog and Accelerator is gone, with only a smear of blood left where the Hound Dog used to be.[3]

Ryouta later sends out a report after searching the Data Banks regarding Accelerator who is now wanted for attempted murder.[1]
