Inamori Asuto (
Inazuma Eleven SD
- "A young boy with a straightforward heart who loves soccer. He aims for victory no matter what the circumstances, and watching him enjoy soccer not only fires up his team but his opponent’s team as well."
Asuto had deep green eyes and short dark gray hair that spikes up at the top and back sides of his head.
His casual outfit consists of a white t-shirt, a short-sleeved blue hoodie over it, and dark blue shorts.
Asuto is an upbeat, straightforward, soccer-loving boy. He usually thinks before acting and doesn't like interfering unless he thinks the situation is out of control. He is hard-working and accepting, and easily adapts to new situations.
At the start of the series, he had a simpler mindset, assuming everybody played soccer for the sole motive of enjoying the sport. After moving to Inazuma Town and getting the chance to meet many different people in the Football Frontier, he comes to realize and accept there might be a variety of different motives, but he still stands by his principles that soccer should be played fairly.
Asuto tends to be considerate of other people and avoids forcing his own ideas on others, as shown with Nosaka's sickness and Haizaki's situation. He prefers to confront people privately and allow them to speak their honest feelings. Because of this, he helped people like Haizaki and Ichihoshi to figure out their own paths.
Asuto received a letter from his late mother where it was revealed that he originally lived in Tokyo with his mother and father, who was a professional soccer player. However, his mother decided to move to Inakunijima due to her illness she had while his dad moved somewhere else to continue with his career. She didn't tell him anything about his father, because she was afraid that Asuto would hate his father and soccer, and she decided to tell him that his father died in an accident.
Inazuma Eleven Ares no Tenbin
Asuto played soccer along with his teammates who were a part of Inakuni and decided to take a break after some training. Wanting to play a match against another team on the mainland, he and Michinari Tatsumi went to Fuyukai Suguru to suggest it but he then said that Inakuni Soccer Club was disbanded. Seeing some workers destroying their field, Asuto tried to stop them but failed as the workers kept pushing him easily from the field. While tending to his wounds, he received news from his best friend Hiura Kirina that he had to go to the hospital for his mother and he quickly went there. He arrived and was saddened by the fact that his mother was on the edge of dying while his mother instead was worried about his injuries and apologized to him for not able to see him grow, stating that she will be forever with him. After his mother died, he ran towards the cliff on Inakunijima and screamed it out while crying also. The next day, the former members of Inakuni Soccer Club and Kozoumaru Sasuke decided to move to Inazuma Town to be able to play soccer. They joined Raimon's soccer club under the name of Inakuni Raimon and while being at Inazuma Town, they stayed at the Kogarashi Manor, which is ran by Kazeaki Yone.
Asuto with his team played against Seishou Gakuen for their first Football Frontier kanto match. Kozoumaru scored the first goal for Inakuni Raimon with Fire Tornado which surprised Inakuni Raimon as well as Seishou Gakuen. However, after the goal, Seishou Gakuen dominated the rest of the match, using hissatsu like Death Zone and Overhead Penguin to score goals, and Inakuni Raimon lost the match with 10-1. After the match, Asuto and his teammates went to a nearby tower and cried as they lost the match. However, Shimabukuro Ikutarou stepped to them and offered to be their sponsor for the Football Frontier, despite losing the match. This made the players of Inakuni Raimon very happy again.
Inakuni Raimon woke up in the Kogarashi Manor and ate their breakfast before heading off to Raimon to train for their next match. While they were training, they were introduced to their coach, Zhao Jinyun, and they heard about the set-up of the Football Frontier, which made Asuto excited since Inakuni Raimon still had a chance to advance. They then talked about their next opponent, Minodouzan, and they find it weird how their coach wanted to strengthen their defense instead of coming up with a strategy to bring the wall down. The coach gave another weird training where Hiura and Iwato Takashi were excluded from others, giving them chores to do instead while the match was coming up. One evening, Asuto went to talk to Kozoumaru and after they started to talk a bit with each other, Kozoumaru revealed that he used to be a defender but became a forward as Gouenji Shuuya told him he wasn't suited to be a defender.
Asuto played with his team their second match of the Football Frontier kanto block, their opponent being Minodouzan, and this time they played in their own Raimon Stadium. They had a rough time breaking their defense as the players were standing like a wall in front of the goal and used their override hissatsu, Rensa The Wall, as well to block Inakuni Raimon's movements. Despite Minodouzan's strong defense, Hiura revealed his new hissatsu, Koori no Ya, to pass the ball to Asuto, who was between the wall and the goal. Asuto received the ball and succeeded in scoring Inakuni Raimon's second and winning goal. Having achieved Inakuni Raimon's first win, Asuto was happy and was sure that they will take their soccer back if they kept winning more matches. Some time after the match, Asuto ran into Haizaki Ryouhei in Inazuma Town and since they faced off against each other in the first match, Asuto became interested in Haizaki and decided to talk with him. However, Haizaki broke the talk up quickly since he had somewhere to be and walked away, leaving Asuto behind. Inakuni Raimon later watched the match between Seishou Gakuen and Kidokawa Seishuu with Asuto being interested how the match would play out.
Before Inakuni Raimon were able to play their match against Mikage Sennou, their coach got arrested for unauthorized access, leaving the team shocked and surprised. As the match started, they had no idea what they should exactly do without the instructions of their coach. Zhao Jin Yun luckily managed to send some instructions from the jail to Inakuni Raimon's Eleven Bands, resulting in Asuto scoring the first goal for Inakuni Raimon after receiving the ball from Hiyori Masakatsu who used his new hissatsu, Shooting Cut, to get the ball. Asuto then received an instruction that was meant for him through the Eleven Band and decided to dribble forward with the ball where he used Inabikari Dash to get pass two defenders. Receiving more instructions from their coach, Inakuni Raimon was able to win their third Football Frontier kanto match with a score of 4-0. After the match, Asuto met Kidou Yuuto, who said to him that he should be cautious about their next opponent, Teikoku Gakuen. The coach eventually returned sometime after the match and they had a meeting about their next opponent. The coach decided to give them a training, which really tired them out at the end of the day.
Inakunu Raimon faced their next opponent and Asuto motivated their team that they were going to win this match. The kick-off started and Asuto was surprised about Teikoku's movements and Asuto's teammates started to move up to which Asuto stated that they moved up too much. Asuto managed to pick up a loose ball and used his hissatsu, Inabikari Dash, to get past Kazemaru Ichirouta, scoring the second goal for Inakuni Raimon as well. The first half ended and Asuto and some of his teammates were exhausted since they used a lot of their energy during the first half. The second half started and Inakuni Raimon weren't able to keep up with Teikoku's movements since their movements changed and some players from Inakuni Raimon were still exhausted from the first half. Before Sakuma Jirou was able to score another goal for Teikoku, Asuto went all the way back to the goal to sliding tackle Sakuma, saving Inakuni Raimon from a potential goal. The coach gave the team new instructions through their Eleven Band, which caused the players to use their new hissatsu they developed in the Inabikari Shuurenjou. After receiving the ball from the defenders who used Gravity Cage, Asuto along with Kozoumaru and Umihara Norika used their new combination hissatsu, Hokkyoku Guma 2gou, which scored the fourth and winning goal for Inakuni Raimon, thus winning their fourth kanto match, causing Asuto and his teammates to celebrate their victory.
To make it to the national block of the Football Frontier, Inakuni Raimon had to face one more opponent in their kanto block and they had to win that match as well to be sure to have a spot in the top 2. Asuto decided to watch Seishou Gakuen's match and saw Haizaki wasn't playing, surprising him. Haizaki then approached Asuto and said he won't be playing against a weak team but Nosaka Yuuma and Nishikage Seiya came. Haizaki became angry of what Nosaka said and confronted him while Asuto was standing at the side, confused about what they were exactly talking about. Haizaki didn't tell him either when he walked away and Asuto then received a call from Michinari who told him that their opponent had to withdraw and that their next opponent would be Seishou Gakuen again. Later that evening, Asuto talked to Hiura and Mansaku Yuuichirou about the conversation he heard earlier between Haizaki and Nosaka. After the talk, Asuto received a letter from Yone who was from his deceased mother, telling him about his past and his dad. The next day, Inakuni Raimon trained for their rematch against Seishou Gakuen.
Seishou Gakuen quickly took the lead with Haizaki scoring three goals for them. Asuto clashed with Haizaki several times but was unable to take the ball. After the third goal for Seishou Gakuen, Asuto started to help defend as well, preventing Haizaki from scoring another goal and sliding tackling his opponents and the first half ended with Inakuni Raimon unable to score a goal. During half time, Asuto motivated his teammates to still have fun in soccer even though they're losing at the moment. The second half started and Inakuni Raimon's movements changed as they quickly scored their first goal with Kozoumaru's Fire Tornado. While Asuto approached the goal to score the second goal, Mizukamiya Seiryuu tried to stop him and he failed as Asuto managed to pass the ball to one of his teammates but Asuto injured his leg while doing that. After their second goal, they used their tactics, Marionette Attack, to disturb Seishou Gakuen's plays and Asuto proceeded to score the third goal for Inakuni Raimon. However, due to his injury, Asuto wasn't able to keep up with Seishou Gakuen's plays but he weakened Haizaki's Overhead Penguin, so Norika was able to catch it with Uzumaki The Hand. Near the end of the match, Asuto went to his coach and he received an acupressure treatment from him for his leg injury, which caused to temporary feel no pain from it. Because of that, Asuto played with everything he had got and scored the fourth goal with Meteor Drop, which was a combination hissatsu with Hiura and Kozoumaru, and the fifth and winning goal with his new hissatsu, Shining Bird. While Inakuni Raimon celebrated their victory and their place in the top two of their block, Asuto talked with Haizaki about his plays and the match.
After their win, Inakuni Raimon was training a day before the opening ceremony for the national block of the Football Frontier. Nosaka decided to pay Inakuni Raimon a visit and Asuto talked to Nosaka about doing their best in their matches, only with Nosaka to respond that he dislikes his soccer. Being one of the teams that made it, they were present at the opening ceremony and Asuto gave a small speech during the press conference. Their first opponent was Zeus and Asuto was surprised by Zeus' aerial movements. Zeus quickly took the lead with Heruse Arisu's Tenkuu no Yaiba and Afuro Terumi's God Knows Impact and Asuto had the ball when he approached the goal but it was stolen by Hadeno Tetsu before he could do anything with it. Inakuni Raimon managed to come back in the match and were able to win the match with a score of 3-2 with Asuto and Kozoumaru creating an override between Shining Bird and Fire Tornado called Bakunetsu Storm, which scored the third and winning goal. After their victory, Asuto and his teammates decided to watch the match between Seishou Gakuen and Outei Tsukinomiya but were shocked when they saw that Seishou Gakuen were losing 3-0, which was the end score as well since Seishou Gakuen forfeited the match. Asuto later followed Mikado Anna to Outei Tsukinomiya's school where she met up with Nosaka and spied on the conversation the two has in which Nosaka stated that he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and didn't have long to live.
During a meeting, it was shown that Inakuni Raimon's next opponent was Hakuren and they discussed three players, Someoka Ryuugo, Fubuki Shirou and Fubuki Atsuya. Asuto saw that Norika was a bit depressed and asked what's wrong with her to which she responded that she wasn't able to stop the shoots and that she should become a goalkeeper that can stop those shoots. After some training, Asuto visited Seishou Gakuen to talk to Haizaki about the last match he played but Haizaki brushed him off. Asuto then returned to the Kogarashi Manor and saw that Norika left directly after dinner to train, which caused him to eat quickly as well so that he could train to. They started their match against Hakuren and Asuto, Kozoumaru and Norika immediately used Hokkyoku Guma 2gou after the kick-off but it was stopped by Atsuya's Hissatsu Kumagoroshi Baku, which surprised them. After the defense started to fall apart due to some arguing, Asuto decided to defend in order to help his teammates. Right after the Fubuki brothers scored the second goal with White Double Impact, Asuto tied the score 2-2 with a strong normal. Shiratoya Nae got switched in and Asuto and his teammates were surprised about the fact that she wasn't able to play soccer properly by missing passes but she proved otherwise by scoring two more goals for Hakuren, the second goal with the help of the Fubuki brothers with Triple Blizzard. Despite being behind again, Asuto received the ball from Hiura, who used Koori no Ya, and proceeded to use Shining Bird to score the third goal for Inakuni Raimon. He was also happy for Norika when she used her new hissatsu, Mermaid Veil, to stop Triple Blizzard successfully. Atsuya then used Hissatsu Kumagoroshi Zan, trying to score the winning goal for Hakuren, but instead Asuto and Kozoumaru used Counter Drive and reflected the shoot to Hakuren's goal instead, causing Inakuni Raimon to win the match with a score of 5-4.
Inakuni Raimon had a meeting once again about their next opponent, Eisei Gakuen, and the team also watched Michinari and Goujin Tetsunosuke trying to develop their new hissatsu. Next day, they had their match against Eisei Gakuen and Asuto scored the first goal for Inakuni Raimon after some passes from his teammates. Kiyama Tatsuya injured himself after trying to block Flash Dance and Asuto was surprised he still kept going despite his injury. Tatsuya was eventually went to the bench to threat his injury and Inakuni Raimon took their chance to score more goals since Eisei Gakuen was with only ten players on the field. Asuto used Inabikari Dash to get past Midorikawa Ryuuji and later scored the fourth goal for Inakuni Raimon, after receiving the ball from Hiura, who used Koori no Ya. Kira Hiroto was later substituted on for Nagumo Haruya, who injured himself, and he tied the score 4-4 with his two hissatsu, The Explosion and Zigzag Strike, causing Asuto to be amazed of his power. Asuto later used Shining Bird twice but both attempts were stopped by Saginuma Osamu's Drill Smasher. During the extra time, Tatsuya and Hiroto used their combination shoot, Cosmic Blaster, and Asuto and Kozoumaru helped Norika to stop the powerful shoot. After successfully stopping the shoot, the trio used Hokkyoku Guma 2gou which scored the sixth and winning goal for Inakuni Raimon. With this win, they advanced to the semi-finals and when the team was waving at the audience, Asuto saw that Haizaki was in the audience, assuming he watched the match.
When the team was on their way to school, they saw the shopping district decorated with their name on some decorations, seeing how many people are amazed by their winning streak and plays. Something similair happened when they arrived at school where some students were yelling at them. They later had a meeting about their upcoming opponent, Tonegawa Tousen, and their captain, Endou Mamoru, who previously was a member of Raimon. However, Zhao Jin Yun decided to leave the training and let the team train on their own. Asuto, Kozoumaru and Michinari were training to develop a new hissatsu but they didn't succeed. Back at the Kogarashi Manor, Asuto had a talk with Michinari and the next day, Asuto and his teammates were watching the crowd who were cheering for Endou to enter the stadium. The match started and Asuto received the ball, quickly passing it to Goujin. Nothing much happened during the match since both teams were even but Tonegawa Tousen managed to score a goal with Tenryuu while Inakuni Raimon wasn't able to score any due to Endou stopping everything. Michinari saw Inakuni Raimon's plays during the first half and gave a speech regarding the plays Inakuni Raimon made in the second half, causing Inakuni Raimon to play better. Asuto later used Inabikari Dash to change Kozoumaru's Fire Tornado's direction towards Goujin, who used his new hissatsu, Backdraft, to score the tying goal for Inakuni Raimon. Near the end of the match, Asuto, Kozoumaru and Michinari decided to use their combination hissatsu that they practiced the previous day but they hadn't gotten enough power until Michinari decided to give it his all in this hissatsu. The trio then shot Victory Line towards Tonegawa Tousen's goal and broke through Endou's Fuujin Raijin, scoring the second and winning goal for Inakuni Raimon.
After the match, Asuto sat with Hiura and Mansaku in the night, looking at the sky, and they couldn't believe that the finals were next with Asuto saying that they should win it and bring soccer back to their island. The next day, Inakuni Raimon were panicking about having only ten members for the finals with their captain being hospitalized. Kidou and Haizaki came to their clubroom and Kidou revealed that Haizaki will be their eleventh member, surprising the team. After school, Asuto and some others went to visit Michinari in the hospital to see how he was doing and Michinari wanted Asuto to be the captain for the final match, which he accepted. Later that day, Asuto brought Haizaki to a tower, wanting him to show the view and to talk about his revenge. Nosaka made a surprise visit to Raimon, surprising the Inakuni Raimon members, and he gave to data of the Outei Tsukinomiya players to make it fair for the final match. Before he left, Asuto stated that Inakuni Raimon will defeat Outei Tsukinomiya to which Nosaka responded that he was looking forward to it. Inakuni Raimon had a meeting and Asuto suggested to go back to Inakunijima to train which surprised the other members. The team warmed up and the match started with Nosaka's kick-off.
Like the rest of the team, Asuto was hurt by Grid Omega, causing Outei Tsukinomiya to score the first goal, but Inakuni Raimon quickly got up and Haizaki revealed that he minimalized the damage by using the training they got on Inakunijima. Asuto later stole the ball from Nosaka after Outei Tsukinomiya used Rogue Press and he was surprised that Nosaka was hurt after clashing multiple times with Haizaki. Asuto used Shining Bird to make an Bakunetsu Storm with Kozoumaru which was a fake shoot as Mansaku picked up the ball and scored the tying goal. He later failed to stole the ball from Nosaka who quickly advanced through the field, scoring the second goal for Outei Tsukinomiya with King's Lance. The first half ended and Asuto grabbed Haizaki's and Nosaka's shirt and gave a speech about their plays. He then motivated the whole team to win this match and the second half started. Asuto dodged several Outei Tsukinomiya players and passed the ball to Kozoumaru. He later used Counter Drive with Kozoumaru to shoot Nosaka's King's Lance back but it was stopped by Nishikage Seiya's Ouke no Tate who got help from Michiba Atsunori and Hanasaki Taizen. While training to get the ball back, Asuto remembered his time with Inakuni Raimon and their trainings. When Goujin was about to use his hissatsu, Nosaka stole the ball but Asuto recovered the ball and passed the ball back to Goujin, who scored the winning goal for Inakuni Raimon with Fire Lemonade. The match ended and Inakuni Raimon celebrated their victory, being very happy about the fact that they won the Football Frontier. Asuto, Haizaki and Nosaka then went to a nearby tower and promised each other to play soccer again.
Inazuma Eleven Orion no Kokuin
Asuto and Haizaki were looking for some fruit to give to Nosaka when they saw Nishikage doing the same thing. The duo later visited Nosaka in the hospital and sometime after went to the ceremony to see which players were chosen for Inazuma Japan. Asuto was announced as one of the players as a midfielder and he was very happy to see that he was selected although surprised that he was selected as a midfielder. The players who were selected, aside from Nosaka and Nishikage, then came together wearing their uniform and went to their training facility with the bus. Because Ichihoshi Mitsuru was a new player, Asuto introduced himself to him and later the whole team was introduced to their coaches and managers. The next day, Clario Orvan appeared, using Diamond Ray which nobody was able to stop, and Asuto along with four others met Mutekigahara Fujimaru later that night who challenged them to steal the ball from him.
The day of their match against Red Bison arrived and Asuto was excited to play his first match as a member of Inazuma Japan. After Baek Shi-Woo's Red Break was stopped by Kazemaru's Spinning Fence, Red Bison started to use rough plays to get the ball. Asuto got the ball after Baek scored with Bison Horn and he mananged to dodge Baek's sliding. He was surprised that he was able to dodge the rough play that was made and he then realized that the battle they had with Mutekigahara was helping them to dodge the rough plays. Inazuma Japan then used Juu to Gou and Gouenji got the ball who used Last Resort to score the tying goal. However, quickly after the kick-off, Gouenji got injured and that made all the other members worried about his injury with the first half ending quickly after. During half time, Asuto was still worried about Gouenji's injury, assuming that Hiroto will replace him, and was surprised about Goujin's warm up. The second half started and Asuto picked up the loose ball after Seok Min-Woo hit the ball away with his head and kicked it towards the goal, scoring the second goal for Inazuma Japan. However, while he was happy that he scored, Haizaki and Hiroto looked at him angrily and Asuto quickly wondered if he should have made that shoot. He later dodged Tokkou Buffalo Train and was worried when Kazemaru tried to block Red Break with his head. Seok got injured by his own teammates, which shocked most of Inazuma Japan's members, and Asuto later was a part of the tactics, Angel Robe. In the end, Inazuma Japan with a score of 3-2 and Asuto went to congratulate Haizaki and Hiroto but they didn't respond to it due to their rivalry. Later that night, Asuto saw that their match made the news already and was still thinking about the victory when he was lying in bed.
Asuto was amongst the players who went to visit Gouenji in the hospital and when Goujin said that he was going to take Gouenji's position, Asuto said that their names were similair. When they got back, it was revealed that Inazuma Japan's next opponent was Australia's national team, Shining Satans, but their coach didn't manage to get any info on them, so the team went to train for their next match without having any idea what kind of plays Australia has. The Inakuni players met up with each other and they were wondering about Australia's plays when Ichihoshi came to their room with a video. He showed them the video and they went to train for physical combat since they saw that in the video. While they were resting from their training, Zhao came for Asuto, Hiura and Goujin and asked them to join Fubuki and Kazemaru for some shopping. After they were done, they went to look for Mutekigahara and they found him by a lake where he was fishing. They challenged them for another battle but instead of using rough plays, he used tricky plays and once again, nobody was able to steal the ball from him. After the battle, Hiura claimed that Mutekigahara's name was fake which surprised Asuto and after he left, Asuto stated that there was no mistake that he was an incredible player.
The day of the match between Inazuma Japan and Shining Satans arrived and Endou motivated the team before the match started. Asuto received the ball from Kidou, stating that they will win this match for Gouenji, but he quickly lost the ball as it vanished. His teammates were surprised that he easily passed the ball to them and said that he should focus. While Shining Satans advanced towards Japan's goal, Asuto mentioned that the team weren't like the players in the video Ichihoshi showed them. When Shining Satans used their tactics, Invisible, Asuto was wondering what kind of tactics that was. After Japan conceded two goals, Raimon Natsumi arrived and told Zhao Jin Yun to send an order to the players to close their eyes. Asuto did what he said and closed his eyes, successfully stealing the ball from Sar Gatanas. Inazuma Japan then used their tactics, Juu to Gou, and Asuto passed the ball to Kidou, who used Overhead Penguin to score a goal for Inazuma Japan. After the kick-off, Asuto and Haizaki were blinded by something, so they weren't able to stop As Taroth. The first half then ended with Shining Satans being in the lead with a score of 1-3. The second half started and Asuto noticed Haizaki and Hiroto's weird passes they were doing to Ichihoshi. As the game advanced, Asuto was wondering if Haizaki and Hiroto were doing that on purpose and what was going on with the match. He went to Sakanoue Noboru and asked him if he was part of it as well but he had no idea what Asuto was talking about. After Ichihoshi was hit by The Explosion, he went to him and aksed if he was alright. Hearing his side of the story, Asuto went to Kidou and asked if it were his orders. Kidou didn't answer and walked away while Asuto stated that this wasn't soccer with Haizaki saying that he didn't get it at all. Luci Fanos used his blade hidden in his cleats and cut Sakanoue, which caused Asuto to be worried about him. Before Satan Gaul was able to score another goal with Time Trance, Asuto stole the ball from him, stating that he will play soccer fairly, and passed the ball to Hiura. After Endou managed to stop Time Trance with Fuujin Raijin Ghost, Inazuma Japan quickly tied the score with Perfect Penguin, The Explosion and a new override, Death Crusher Zone. Kidou, Haizaki and Hiroto kept hitting Ichihoshi with their passes, so Asuto decided to take one on purpose which caused him to be immobilized for a bit, receiving some first aid. He then stated to the trio that soccer wasn't something you should use to throw out anger and hatred to each other, that would make soccer not soccer anymore with Ichihoshi thanking to Asuto for helping him. After both Asuto and Ichihoshi were treated, the winning goal was quickly scored with Penguin The God & Devil.
After the match, the Inakuni group went to Asuto and wondered if he was okay, also stating that something was off with the match. The team went to the locker room and celebrated their victory while Kidou caused some uproar with accusing Ichihoshi for everything bad that has happened to the team. Some people from the FFI administration bureau entered their locker room and searched through the belongings of the players when they found doping drugs with Kidou's stuff. They took Kidou with them, shocking the team, and Ichihoshi entered the room. Haizaki quickly grabbed his shirt and Asuto tried to stop him but that didn't work, so Endou calmed Haizaki down instead, saying that he would be banned from playing too. Ichihoshi then thanked him for helping him and that made him able to dispose of a nuisance, shocking Asuto. After Ichihoshi left, Haizaki blamed him for what had happened to Kidou. The next day, Asuto spied on Ichihoshi when he was sitting on a bench near the lake. Haizaki and Hiroto approached him and he and Goujin stopped the duo from causing more uproar. Some days later, their next opponent was revealed to be Uzbekistan, Eternal Dancers, who were a stamina team. The team were divided in teams to do a relay race for their training. They were exhausted when they were finally finished and thinking that they finally could get some rest, Kazemaru wanted them to do a different training. Some time later, Endou got arrested after he encountered some guys, which shocked the team, making Endou not being the goalkeeper for the match.
The day of the match arrived and Asuto couldn't believe that Endou wasn't playing but Kazemaru stated that Nishikage was comparable to Endou's goalkeeping skills. The match started and Inazuma Japan quickly conceded two goals, making the score 0-2 in the first half.

- Hino once said that because Asuto's personality is a lot like Tenma, he had to figure out a way to differentiate Asuto from Tenma.
- Asuto has a poor sense of direction as shown in Orion's episode 16. This is mostly due to Inakunijima's roadmaps being really simple.
