Kota Tanuma is a student at East Tokyo United's football academy and his father, Goro Tanuma, is a long time fan of ETU. He is also a big ETU fan. Kota used to find ETU's playing style boring but since Tatsumi took over, he finds ETU exciting. He wanted to get Tatsumi's autograph but didn't voice it out loud as he thought his friends would think he was silly for wanting a coach's signature.
