|Affiliation||5th Special Fire Brigade|
|Manga||Company 5 and Company 8|
Tōru has short and shaggy light hair, with bangs that fall in front of his face, dopey eyes and is always seen chewing or blowing bubblegum, which sometimes, for comedic effect, bursts on his face and creates an imprint. He wears bunker gear, which consists of a protective outer jacket, dark trousers, boots and protective gloves. Parts of his outfit are coated with blue lines. When on official, 5th Special Fire Brigade, business, Tōru wears a black uniform with a hat, both of which have a cross-like insignia on them in the form of a button. Tōru's outfits contain patches with "5" on them, which signify his affiliation to the 5th Special Fire Brigade.
Tōru is rude, careless and doesn't give much thought before he speaks, which can result in arguments or fights. He is heavily opinionated, speaking freely and with a sarcastic tone, arrogant and boastful in his prowess as a Third Generation, which leads him to insult people, like Akitaru, who do not have the ability to manipulate flames. Tōru is also quite laid-back and appears to always be chewing bubblegum. He decided to join a Special Fire Brigade because of his ability and in hopes of being popular with girls.
Tōru is a Third Generation, who received the ability to create explosions by filling up the inside vacuum of a bubblegum balloon with flammable gas. He is also quite resourceful on the battlefield, as he was able to find the perfect hiding spot from which he could attack whilst not being able to be injured by Takehisa Hinawa's bullets.
Introduction arc Edit
As the 5th Special Fire Brigade arrives at the scene in order to secure the capture of Setsuo Miyamoto, Tōru pushes away a bystander, enraging Shinra in the process. When the rest of the 8th Special Fire Brigade arrive to back Shinra up, Tōru insults Akitaru for having no ability to manipulate flames, which causes him to get into a fight with Shinra and Arthur. Their fight is quickly broken up, after which Maki puts up a façade and approaches Tōru, delivering a corkscrew punch straight to his gut. A stand-off between the brigades is then catalyzed, but the two depart without any signs of struggle.
VS. 5th Special Fire Brigade arc Edit
The following day, when the 8th Special Fire Brigade infiltrates the 5th Special Fire Fighting Industrial Complex, Tōru attempts to fend off Maki and Takehisa, but to no avail as Takehisa uses his Second Generation ability to ricochet his bullets, allowing him to hit Tōru from behind the boy's hiding spot and secure the victory.
VS. 1st Special Fire Brigade arc Edit
After the 8th and 5th Special Fire Brigades come to terms and begin working together, Tōru, alongside Takeru and the Fire Officers from the 8th, visits the 1st Special Fire Fighting Cathedral. In the training grounds, Tōru is matched against Foien Li, who refuses to waste his time with the fight. Some time later, he settles in with Arthur, Shinra and Takeru in the 1st Special Fire Brigade's dormrooms where their peace abruptly ends as Tamaki bursts in, informing them of the recent Flame Human sighting and ordering Tōru to join Foien during the course of the mission.
