History Edit

Early Life Edit

Ren and Akira as Kids

Akira and Ren as children

Akira was born and raised in Tokyo, where she lived with her parents, Midori and Hideki Kazami. Akira was always boyish and played sports, but her mother did not like the way she behaved. At age five, her younger brother, Takumi Kazami was born. At age ten, she befriended Ren Johnson, who was a lonely boy when her cyan sunhat landed on his head. They played together and spent every summer in Okinawa, where they played with Akira's cousin, Haruka Kazami. One day, they were playing "Tag", but Ren won the game. Akira, however, did not seem to mind at all, as she congratulated him instead and said that she wished she run so fast, so she would win tag. Ren said that he wished he will transform into people. When the nanite explosion happened, their wishes granted and gained super speed and super strength.

At age twelve, Akira bid goodbye to Ren when he was about to move back to America and promised each other to meet again one day. She enrolled to middle school as a first year student.

Season One Edit

Breach Edit

Akira was first seen in Tokyo.

Personality Edit

Akira is tomboyish, independent, tough, carefree, strong-willed, bold, hot-blooded, short-tempered, stubborn, energetic, upbeat, sarcastic, adventurous, outgoing, courageous, athletic, rebellious and spunky, which makes her somewhat similar to Rex Salazar and Yumi Sakurakouji in many ways. Despite portraying several "Rex/Yumi-like" habits, she has shown to be quite mature and and less self-confident. Although she is outstanding at sports, she loves all kinds of sport too much to settle into one club in her school, preferring to provide aid to any team that needs her help instead.

Physical Appearance Edit

Akira has shoulder-length dark brown hair and eyes of the same color. She wore a tight-fitting yellow sweater-vest with a sky blue string tie over a long-sleeved dress shirt, a gray short pleated skirt, navy blue thigh-high socks, black sneakers and sometimes a navy blue blazer. She is also known to always wear black cycling shorts under every skirt and dress she wears.

When she was younger, she wore a cyan t-shirt, an overall dress similar to the one Circe wears, but with a chest pocket on the center, white socks, teal sneakers and a cyan sunhat. Her hair was also shorter.[1]

Her normal outfit consists of a two toned green t-shirt over a navy blue undershirt, blue shorts, a green belt on her waist, a green wristband on her right wrist, her navy blue thigh-high socks and black sneakers.[2]

Occasionally, she is seen wearing a white shirt under a teal jacket with elbow-length rolled up sleeves, light blue rolled up pants and teal flats.[3]

When she was in Okinawa, Japan, she was wearing a light green bikini.[4]

In cold climates, she wears a teal and turquoise jacket with a cyan belt on it, blue pants, dark gray boots and cyan gloves.[5]

When The Pack came to attack Providence, her attire changed from her usual, school uniform to a new outfit Dr. Holiday gave to her. This outfit consisted of a short teal and turquoise high-collared vest with cyan trimmings over a black sleeveless turtleneck, navy blue short-shorts and a teal belt on her waist. She appears to have kept her navy blue thigh-high socks, but wears teal and cyan thigh-high boots over them. She has teal and cyan sleeves/gloves that go a little past her elbows and her hair is held by two teal pairs of hairpins forming an "X" on the left side of her bangs, which is given by Ren.[6] She now wears her school uniform only when she goes to school.

When jogging, she wears a tight-fitting gray shirt, black track short-shorts with two white tracks running down on both sides of the shorts, white socks and white shoes. Her hair is pulled back in a short ponytail.

When attending to the Trendbenders concert, she wore a mini jacket elbow-length sleeves over a teal midriff baring tank top, dark blue puffy shorts, a teal belt, gray stockings, teal pumps and two teal wristbands on each wrist. Her hair was also held back by two teal hairclips, exposing her forehead. [7]

When she went to a date with Ren, she wore a turquoise halter dress and teal high-heels. Her hair was also held back by two teal hairclips, exposing her forehead. [8]

Powers and Abilities Edit

E.V.O. abilities Edit

  • Super Speed: Akira has super speed.[3] The same power allows her to climb up walls and run on water with relative ease. She has a superhuman strength, as she was able to throw a Providence Assault Vehicle,[9] easily punch through solid rock and she was strong enough to carry Ren without losing any speed.[10] She is also able to jump extremely high, even when running.

Other abilities Edit

  • Martial arts: Akira is a capable gymnast and martial artist. She is a black belt in karate, judo and tae kwon do. When preferring to use her athletics during fights or when she cannot rely on her E.V.O. powers, she is shown to be highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat.
