Rei Sagara

Voiced by: Daisuke Hirakawa (Japanese), David Wald (English)

Rei is the manager of the Sena family.

  • I Owe You My Life: The reason behind his devotion to the Sena family is because Izumi's father saved him when he was left to die in an alley.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: During Izumi's Heroic BSoD, Rei wonders if telling him that he has no chance in the manga industry was a harsh thing to say.
  • Papa Wolf: Once when Izumi was little, Rei attacked a man who was trying to kidnap him.
