Raizou in Money Tree

Todoroki Raizou is the coach of the Yakushi High School baseball team.


Raizou is a thorough and dedicated coach who can quickly assess a situation and make necessary adjustments. He plans to use Raichi's baseball skills to pay back his debts. He's otherwise easy-going and gets along well with his team.


Raizou played amateur baseball until his forties before retiring. He was unemployed for a while, eventually losing all his money and then his wife. He spent his time teaching baseball to his son, Raichi, and other kids by the river. He gave Raichi the bat he had used for practice when he was an active player — a wooden bat with the words "Money Tree" engraved on it. Despite his misfortunes, he finally landed the job at Yakushi High School.
