  • "He has an irritating habit of humming the last song he heard all day long."


Otomura has light blue hair and violet eyes. He wears pink headphones around his ears and yellow frame glasses. He wears the Oumihara soccer uniform which is a teal shirt and gray shorts.



Otomura in the TCG.

He has a strong passion for soccer and music, as shown that when he was ordering his team, he ordered them by saying musical terms. He is seen to always tap his fingers when he hears the "rhythm" in matches they enter.


Season 2

He was first introduced by Tsunami to the team as 'the one who rides the best beat'. During Raimon's friendly against Oumihara, he first predicted Rika's tempo and ordered his teammate to "raise it by 8 beats". He then dribbles a bit faster and got past Rika easily. Soon after that, Otomura predicted The Tower's beat and asked for an andante and the teammate slowed down, avoiding the block hissatsu.


Otomura in season 3.

Soon, he was able to find Raimon's tempo and his team was able to avoid Raimon's attacks. Before the first half was over, Kidou figured it out by changing their rhythm for getting past Oumihara's defense. Otomura quoted that rhythm doesn't exist on the individual, hinting Tachimukai's lack of experience as a midfielder. Whenever the ball was passed to Tachimukai, Oumihara was able to counterattack. In the second half, it became the battle of beats as both teams kept adjusting their rhythm. In the end, Raimon won 1-0 and after the match, Otomura taught Kidou that the entire world is tuned up into rhythm. He was seen again with the whole team, watching the match of Raimon versus the Dark Emperors on a TV, he was also seen to be watching the rhythm again in that match, as seen that he was tapping his fingers.

Season 3

Otomura and a few of his teammates in Oumihara were present during the Inazuma Japan representative match, watching them play.
