Profile Edit

Boys' Fight Edit

Jito was originally someone who liked to fight hand to hand, and was more fired up against strong opponents. Eventually bored by a lack of worthy opponents, his friend Sano showed him Tsubasa, the number 1 soccer player in Japan, which made him take the decision of joining his school's soccer club. In his first duel against Tsubasa, he proved to be a terrifying rival thanks to his impressive size and his power; although he lost, he felt refreshed and decided to keep on playing soccer.

J Boys' Challenge Edit

He joined All Japan's Junior Youth team and played successfully as a defender (in a role that resembled the one of Takasugi), but with a more press zone capability as well as being able to do several combi plays not just with Sano but with the Tachibana twins as well.

Battle of World Youth Edit

In World Youth, he was one of the 7 players who were forced to leave the team by Gamo, who said that Jito was too slow to be a soccer player. After leaving the camp, Jito participated in marathons in order to improved his speed, and when he returned to the team, he had completely corrected this weakness. During the match against Uruguay, he unfortunately scored an own goal, and was willing to pay for this mistake in blood (offering his back as an airborne platform for Hyuga's Raiju Shot, which would have seriously injured him), but Hyuga managed to score without causing him harm.

Since Jito is a huge player, he always guards the other team's tallest player, as in the World Youth series he had to defend China's tallest member, Sho Hi, despite lack of jumping power, and Saudi Arabia's Vulcan, who is 210 cm tall.
