    World Trigger Wiki

    Background[edit source]

    Kitazoe joined Border approximately three years before Chika Amatori and Yūma Kuga.[1] He came to a mutual understanding with Masato Kageura after eight rounds of solo matches.[2] At some point Kageura Squad was formed and climbed to A-rank no. 6,[3][4] but it was demoted when Kageura threw an uppercut at Eizō Netsuki.[2]

    Introduction Arc[edit source]

    Kageura Squad presumably takes part in the extermination of all Rads in Mikado City.[5]

    Large-Scale Invasion Arc[edit source]

    Due to Masafumi Shinoda preventing B-rank squads with missing members from fighting against Aftokrator's forces out of fear of capture, Kageura Squad is not deployed.[6]

    B-Rank Wars Arc[edit source]

    Round Two[edit source]

    Since Azuma Squad, Katori Squad, Ōji Squad and Yuba Squad[7] compete in a four-way rank war in the day division on February 5,[8] and Ikoma Squad and Ninomiya Squad are known to have clashed on that day,[9] Kageura Squad presumably faces off against them in the night division.

    Round Four[edit source]

    On February 11, Kitazoe and Yuzuru Ema find their captain watching the log of Yūma's fight against Kō Murakami in round three, prompting them to note that it is rare for him to do so. Convinced that he has finally found his motivation, Kitazoe's eyes well up with tears, adding to Kageura's annoyance.[10] Four days later, during the night division of rank wars,[11] the match between Kageura Squad, Ninomiya Squad, Azuma Squad and Tamakoma Second begins in a snowy cityscape B.[10] Kitazoe spawns to the north-west of the map and immediately climbs atop a building to bombard all trion signatures within range; however, none of his attacks connect. Before he can target the possible hiding places of the members of Azuma Squad, Masataka Ninomiya fires back with Asteroid, forcing him to flee. The Gunner asks for Ema's help, but when his Egret is easily blocked, Ema leaves his teammate to run from the chasing Ninomiya by himself. Kageura also ignores the fact that Kitazoe is holding up the dreaded Shooter so he can have his fun with Yūma.[12]

    Ninomiya eventually switches targets from Kitazoe to Ema, which the Gunner discovers only when his teammate is attacked[13] and bails out. Now unmarked, Kitazoe aims a few rounds of Meteor at the area where the Attackers of the four squads are fighting, but to his shock, they are detonated mid-flight by Haruaki Azuma, who proceeds to target him next. Kitazoe is however saved by none other than Ninomiya, who wants to claim the point. Resigned to his fate, Kitazoe uses his last moments to bombard the Attackers, providing crucial assistance to Kageura, before bailing out.[14] When only Azuma, Kageura and Ninomiya are left, Kitazoe and Nire pressure their captain into staying hidden until the end. Time runs out without further developments and Kageura Squad ties in second place with Azuma Squad.[15]

    Round Five (Night)[edit source]

    On February 19,[16] the night of Galopoula's Invasion, Kageura Squad fights a rank war against Azuma Squad and Yuba Squad.[17]

    Round Six[edit source]

    On Saturday, February 22,[18] Kitazoe and Isami Tōma serve as commentators for the day division of the sixth round of rank wars, with Yuu Kunichika acting as the host. When Ōji Squad selects Cityscape A, Kitazoe remarks that Tamakoma Second has rarely fought in it, so they might be at a disadvantage.[19] Shortly afterwards the match starts, and Kitazoe supposes that Osamu Mikumo is not meeting up with his teammates to spread his wires.[20] He describes Kazuki Kurauchi's Salamander and hypothesizes that, since Kazuaki Ōji's and Osamu's way of thinking are similar, the former might be able to anticipate the latter.[21] When Tatsuhito Ikoma joins the fight, Kitazoe asks for an explanation of Ikoma Senkū, as no one in his squad uses Senkū, and is deeply impressed with Yūma's sneak attack and the decision to remove Kurauchi instead of using him to slow down his teammates.[22]

    Ōji and Yutaka Kashio thus switch to targeting the Snipers, the team's characteristic of being made up of fast runners reminding Kitazoe of Kusakabe Squad. He praises Chika's deception of Kashio and comments on the irony of Ōji Squad having suffered the most losses despite being the most proficient at reading the flow of the fight.[23] He is surprised that Ōji would then target her instead of Kōji Oki. To Tōma, who states that Tamakoma Second's victory rests on whether she will manage to outrun her pursuer, Kitazoe replies that it does not seem to him that the situation is as dire as the Sniper describes. The two comment on Tamakoma Second regaining the upper hand and Ōji Squad having only one fighter left,[24] and the Gunner discusses how he would counter the wire strategy.[25] At the end of the match, he remarks that Ikoma Squad went with the flow as usual, and that their ability to score is proof of their strength.[26]

    Kageura Squad fights against Ninomiya Squad, Azuma Squad, and Suzunari First in the night division of the sixth round of rank wars. Kageura Squad and Ninomiya Squad tie at the top with three points. No squad receives the survival bonus due to there being multiple survivors.[27] Following the match, Kageura Squad remains in second place with a point total of 34.[28]

    Round Seven[edit source]

    Four days after the blitz[18][29] the members of Kageura Squad, Murakami, Yūma and Tōma dine at Kageura's family's restaurant. Tōma and Kitazoe agree that their host has taken a liking to Yūma, the thought of which and of Ema having a crush move the Gunner to tears. When Kageura reveals that Ema intends to throw the match for Chika's sake, Kitazoe voices his doubts that they would be able to win that easily if he didn't. He follows Tetsuji Arafune's intervention with interest.[30] When Ema leaves to review Tamakoma Second's logs following Yūma's confident declaration that they will win, he expresses his fears that the Sniper would have been penalized for letting his opponents win, although Tōma disagrees, citing Chika's inability to shoot others. Yūma is unwilling to confirm their deductions until Kitazoe corners him. The Gunner is relieved, as she would otherwise be unstoppable with her trion, but Tōma explains that being unwilling and unable to shoot are two different things. After dinner, Kitazoe drives Yūma home on his motorbike.[31]

    Over the few days before Kageura Squad's match against Tamakoma Second, Azuma Squad and Suzunari First, Kitazoe happily watches the logs of their upcoming opponents with his teammates. When March 1 arrives,[31] Kageura is befuddled by Tamakoma Second's addition of a new fighter, whom Kitazoe does not recognize. The stage chosen by Suzunari First is revealed to be Cityscape D,[32] which the Gunner takes to mean that they want to hole up in the mall and evade the Snipers, to which Ema adds that it also counters Kitazoe's own Random Meteor. Kageura and Kitazoe do not feel at a disadvantage in a close-quarters encounter, unlike Ema. Kitazoe and Nire worry about him being hindered, but the decides to enter the mall and fight at Gunner range, impressing them with his resolve.[33]

    Kageura spawns on the fourth floor of the mall and begins to move upwards as Kageura climbs to the roof. The map is revealed to have a nighttime setting. Kitazoe notices that someone on a lower floor is chasing after him, and infers that it must be an ace. As Ema informs him that he will not be able to reach them for a while, Kitazoe spots and fires at his pursuer, who turns out to be Murakami. He meets up with Kageura[34] on the sixth floor[35] just as Tatsuya Kuruma reaches his own teammate. A firefight begins[34] which the two Attackers soon join. Though Kageura Squad appears to have the upper hand at first, the tides turn when Kuruma shifts into Full Attack. Kageura chooses to fall back, surprising Kitazoe.[35] They take shelter inside a restaurant, the narrow space preventing Kuruma from using his pincer attack, but just as they seem to be regaining the upper hand, Taichi Betsuyaku turns off the lights in the mall. Kitazoe is forced to suspend his cover fire not to hit his teammate, until Nire activates visual support. However, Betsuyaku switches the lights back on, blinding Kitazoe and Kageura and allowing Murakami to land a heavy hit on the Attacker. When Ema's attempt to destroy the fuse box fails, Kitazoe shoots the light fixtures and tries to calm Kageura.[27]

    However, Betsuyaku bails out moments later, and the fighters move outside the restaurant just as Hyuse and Yūma arrive. The duo from Suzunari First moves away while Kageura Squad and Tamakoma Second prepare to clash. Hyuse walls Kitazoe off from Kageura with Escudo, turning the battle into a two versus one.[36] Kitazoe kicks down the walls and manages to reach his captain an instant before Tamakoma Second can deliver the final blow, only for Hyuse to trap him. When he sees Yūma coming, Kitazoe conjures his grenade launcher and shoots the ground just as the enemy ace beheads him. Yūma survives the explosion, but Kageura uses the opening in the floor to survive long enough to give the point for his own defeat to Suzunari First, for which Kitazoe congratulates him.[37] When Ema also bails out, Kitazoe praises his wall-piercing sniping.[38] At the end of the match the members of Kageura Squad listen to the commentators' final analysis. Taking note of Kageura's wistful demeanor, Ema asks Kitazoe if he is alright, with the Gunner telling him that he was nervous due to the Sniper's participation in the away mission riding on their success.[39]

    Round Eight[edit source]

    On March 5,[40] Kageura Squad faces off against Ōji Squad and Azuma Squad in the day division of rank wars. Azuma Squad wins the battle, which took place in Exhibition Hall, with a final score of 4-3-3.[41]

      A: It seems I lost the chance to draw it in the story itself so I'll write it here: "HQ Chief Shinoda gave the order that B-rank and lower agents are not allowed to participate in the fight until all members of the team are present". It seems he was worried about agents acting on their own and getting captured by Rabbits. Of course, there are also teams like Kako Squad who was late to the fight because their captain went out on a drive on her time off.
