Okumura and Seto in Daikyou Senior

He was a third-year junior high student from Daikyou Senior in Kanagawa.[2][3] Seto and Okumura's coach treated them nicely in the beginning, but the coach actually believed the team had no potential and suddenly left them to coach a long time rival of their school instead. Feeling betrayed, Okumura rallied Seto and their teammates to defeat their former coach in a game to return him the favour.

Act IEdit

Fall TournamentEdit

Seto watches Seidou's first-round match against Teito High together with his close peer Okumura Koushuu.

FinalsEdit

Seto and Okumura come to watch Seidou's finals match against Yakushi High. They are shown in the bathroom with Seto talking about Raichi and his skills as both a batter and a pitcher. They later run into fellow middle school students Yuuki Masashi and Akamatsu Shinji and they have a brief conversation about what high school they'll be enrolling in. While Seto doesn't recognize Akamatsu, Okumura does recognize the pitcher.

After the match, he is seen talking to Okumura and Akamatsu.

Okumura and Seto

After enrolling at Seidou it's obvious that he sincerely cares about Okumura and often looks out for him, telling him that he doesn't have to push himself so hard.[4]

AbilitiesEdit

Seto is a player with good legs and is adept at stealing and putting pressure while on bases. His records and effectiveness are not yet available but Kuramochi once noted that Seto's base-stealing techniques demonstrated he must have had an extensive amount of training to be able to employ.

Ochiai also noted that his speed ranks A+.
