Akira Kaibuki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akira_kaibuki.jpg
Voiced by: Nobunaga Shimazaki (Japanese), Todd Haberkorn (English)

The main protagonist, Akira is a stoic and level-headed youngster who behaves according to his belief that he is bent into becoming a "savior". He pilots the red-colored Vector-01.


  • Ambiguous Disorder: Akira is just... off. He's always expressionless and emotionally reserved. He's obsessed with "becoming a savior" without knowing why himself. He's also clearly not a people person, doesn't seem to understand social conventions and has the strangest ideas.
  • Battle Couple: With Maia.
  • Betty and Veronica:
    • The Archie to Kokone's Betty and Maia's Veronica.
    • The Betty to Subete's Veronica and Maia's Archie.
  • The Champion: Although he forgot it, Akira's goal for nearly his entire life was to be Maia's savior and save the world for her.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Maia. They met once when they were children and Akira promised her to save the world so she wouldn't destroy it, but Sougon had the memories of their meeting erased. After they meet again years later and spend more time together, they fall in love with each other.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: As part of his role as a "savior", Akira always rushes to save anyone in trouble.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: It's nearly impossible to understand his train of thought.
  • The Comically Serious: Always being so stoic and overly serious doesn't keep him from being funny at times.
  • Determinator: You can chain him up and lock him in a holding cell, but it's not going to stop him.
  • The Dulcinea Effect: It turns out he decided to become a savior in order to save a girl he didn't even know from her fate to destroy the world.
  • Friendless Background: His companions in DEAVA conclude Akira has no friends when he tells them he doesn't have a cellphone because he doesn't need it. Akira doesn't seem to mind, though.
  • The Hero: He's the good guy who's here to save the day and he knows it.
  • Heroic BSoD: He has one in episodes 21 and 22, when he temporarily gives up on being a savior after he can't bring himself to kill Maia to save the city, Maia gets taken away by Subete and Nesta and Tsutomu has to sacrifice himself because of it.
  • Heroic Sacrifice:
    • The Vector-ga is seeking to erase Maia's concept as she's the key to awakening the Aquarion Logos. To protect Maia from it, Akira is letting it erase his own concept instead, even though he knows this could result in him disappearing and being forgotten by everyone.
    • He also tries to pull this off in the finale by sacrificing his life to restore the Logos world and save humanity, but Subete ends up taking his place.
  • I Call It "Vera": He nicknames his Vector as "Savior-go".
  • Instant Expert: Was able to pilot a Vector right away without any instruction or training.
  • Jumped at the Call: He just stumbled onto DEAVA by accident one day and leapt right into action.
  • Manly Tears: He cries when he finally remembers Maia is the reason why he wants to become a savior.
  • Master of the Mixed Message: Maia doesn't think Akira thinks nothing special about her and she's convinced he only protects her because it's his job as a savior. However, Akira says he protects Maia because he wants to.
  • Messianic Archetype: Akira calls himself a "savior" and he thinks it's his mission to save humanity from any danger. Subverted in the finale, where Subete ends up becoming the savior who sacrifices himself for humanity's sake.
  • No Social Skills: Akira doesn't seem to know what is right to say and do at the time of socializing.
  • Oblivious to Love: He's pretty clueless about matters of love, such as Kokone's and eventually Maia's growing feelings for him.
  • Official Couple: With Maia.
  • The Promise: The reason why he decided to become a savior was a promise he made to Maia when they were children. Maia was desperate because she would cause the end of the world, but Akira promised her that he would save the world so she could live on.
  • Raised by Grandparents: He was raised by his adoptive grandparents.
  • Red Is Heroic: He pilots a red Vector.
  • Ret Gone: After he starts using the ancient Vector-ga, Akira tries to protect Maia from it and as a result Akira's entire concept is slowly erased and Akira's existence starts to be forgotten by everyone. At the end, Maia's feelings for him keep Akira from disappearing.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: He never shows any kind of romantic interest in anyone besides Maia and it's eventually revealed he has been subconsciously longing for her since childhood.
  • The Stoic: The expression on his face rarely changes.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Akira is a nice guy, just very stoic and serious as well.
  • The Unchosen One: Subete was thought to be the one who was supposed to be chosen by the power of Verbalism, but then Akira just came out of nowhere and kept saving the day instead, much to Subete's chagrin.
  • Wistful Amnesia: Akira knows he has to become a savior, but he can't remember the reason he decided it. It was because of a promise he made to Maia when they were children; he promised to save the world so she was allowed to live on. They forgot it because Sougon erased their memories.
