While the Messiah is attacking the villages, Takashi and Mizuho Watanabe go back to Sage Academy instead of fleeing with the rest, to release the Impure Cats that are held there, hoping they can be a chance to defeat what they believe to be a fiend. Before going, the two of them leave a letter for Saki Watanabe, telling her to search for a biological weapon called the Psychobuster with the help of a real Minoshiro. It is later reported that he and his wife died in a fire created by the messiah shortly after releasing the cats.
- The name Takashi means "respect" (敬).
