Relationships

Kanji Koganegawa

In a flashback during the Datekou vs Aobajousai match, the coach told Sakunami that he would need to "steer" Koganegawa due to the latter's lack of technique. Sakunami is seen putting this into practice during the match, and it is also confirmed that they are in the same class, 1-A. The two also attened the 2018 Schweiden Adlers vs. MSBY Black Jackals match together.
