I joined up because I thought you were cool.

Kotarō Tomoe to Kuniharu Kakizaki, in Kuniharu Kakizaki.[1]

Kotarō Tomoe (巴 虎太郎 Tomoe Kotarō?) is a Gunner of Kakizaki Unit.

AppearanceEdit

Tomoe has neck-length ash blond hair[3] (sandy in the anime)[4] with two bangs framing the sides of his face, and a small tuft of hair on his nape pointing outwards. He has big, almond-shaped eyes with narrow black irises. His uniform consists in a high-collared, zipped jacket in a bright persimmon color with matching headphones, a black undershirt, boots and dark brown pants[5] (gray in the anime).[4]

PersonalityEdit

Tomoe is very disciplined and focused in combat and while preparing for matches. He is known to be respectful of his elders and well-behaved.[3] He was deeply impressed with Tamakoma Second's goal of making the next away team[6] as well as with Hyuse's swordsmanship,[2][7][8] later congratulating him[9] despite the crushing defeats suffered at his hands.[10]

RelationshipsEdit

Kuniharu KakizakiEdit

Tomoe joined Border because he thought that Kakizaki was cool and two years later jumped at the chance to join his unit.[11] Contrary to Kakizaki's fears, Tomoe does not resent him for their losses and still has a strong faith in him,[12] admiring him and gladly heeding his orders even though he turned out to be more insecure than Tomoe knew.[3]

QuotesEdit

  • (To Madoka Ui) "Sorry, I couldn't tell what was going on, and then I lost."[13]
  • (To Kuniharu Kakizaki) "I joined up because I thought you were cool."[1]

TriviaEdit

  • He likes hashed meat and rice, watermelons, and manga.[5]
  • When he joined, he was the youngest agent as well as the first elementary school student to be accepted into Border.[14]
  • He is the only combatant in his unit not to be an All-Rounder,[15] his position as a Gunner suggesting that it is because he lacks enough points with Kogetsu.
  • The author described Tomoe as a riajū (リア充), a pejorative term for someone who lives a happy and fulfilling life, on account of his being doted on by his senpai and especially by his unit's Operator Ui.[3]
    • This makes Tomoe the second riajū of Kakizaki Unit, the other being his captain.[3]
  • Ashihara also insinuated that Tomoe's hairstyle might be inspired by Yūichi Jin's.[3]
