Takeshi is a member of Kyōshirō's pack.
Ginga Densetsu Weed
He falls into a river where Tōbē saves him. Afterwards, Tōbē is told to kill him, but instead he wounds him badly. Takeshi is then taken to Hōgen's fortress as hostage but saved by Kyōshirō, while Tōbē stands guard, ready to fight off anyone who might attack them. Takeshi is then brought to safety and joins Weed’s pack.
Later Takeshi can be seen watching the final battle between Weed and Hōgen.
