At first sight he looks small, with a red spiky hair, but behind this vision hides a strong character. Just like Onoda, Naruko is also a newcomer high school student. They both meet in an anime figure shop. Naruko has the ability of motivating people around him and Onoda is the one who uses this benefit the most. Thanks to Naruko's teachings, Onoda keeps progressing and goes deeply into cycling. Naruko has already made himself famous in the cycling world before coming to his new school (the new club). After becoming member of the team Sohoku, Naruko and Imaizumi become rivals. They always argue about everything and the one always thinks differently than the other. Unlike Imaizumi, Naruko is highly specialized bicycler.
