Leader of the "Human Debris" (ヒューマンデブリ Hyūman Deburi?), trafficked boys who are conscripted into CGS (whereas the other boys usually enlist out of necessity to feed themselves). He is the second best pilot in Tekkadan after Mikazuki, and received two "Whisker" man-machine interface implants called Alaya-Vijnana, thus he was entrusted with the Graze Custom salvaged. He often takes the lead in dangerous missions.
Personality & Character
He’s cold, withdrawn, and cliquish as shown when he bluntly told Orga that he will obey any order from anyone if they are in authority. He has somewhat of a friendly rivalry with Mikazuki and is often seen working out.
Skills & Abilities
His piloting skills are second only to Mikazuki’s.
When he was a child his parents' trade ship was attacked by pirates and he was trafficked for money as a Human Debris.
Though he and his group are technically freed by Orga after Tekkadan's mutiny, Akihiro and his fellow Human Debrises remain with the group out of gratitude and the fact that it would be almost impossible for them to get regular jobs.
