Profile Edit

The goalkeeper of the Real Japan 11. He was introduced as the keeper who catches the shoots like a spider imprisoning the shoot courses in its web. In the first match against Japan, he caught Nitta's Hayabusa Shoot easily and completely defended the goal in the next two matches. However, in the rematch with the 7 excluded members of All Japan, he couldn't respond to their attacks, especially Hyuga's Raiju Shoot and conceded 10 goals in just 30 minutes.

He was also among the candidates for the Olympic, but was not chosen in the end.

Special techniques Edit

Trivia Edit
