Kousuke Sawaki (沢木 浩介 Sawaki Kōsuke ) is one of the main protagonists of the Taimanin Arc of the Mahou Kaiju Series, who was introduced in the movie Anti-Demon Kaiju Taigaia as a young boy who is the brother of Asagi Igawa's late boyfriend Kyousuke Sawaki, and could transform into the tiger kaiju Taigaia.
He is a very youthful-looking man with an average height, as well as spiked brown hair and sky-blue irises on his eyes. He wears a red headband. His outfit is a yellow shirt, purple vest and fingerless gloves, blue pants and indigo sandals. He also has bandage on his lower left cheek to cover the scar that he had while trying to protect Asagi.
Kousuke is a hot-blooded and determined boy who is always stubborn and headstrong as a result of his difficult childhood and rough times he faced during the events of Taigaia. Initially, he was crude and mean-spirited to everyone around him, especially to his eventual best friend Ryuunosuke Shirogane. This was the result of him having to deal being alone for the rest of his life after his only family and brother Kyousuke was killed by Asagi after he was turned into a monster by Oboro. Because of this, Kousuke came to hate the Taimanin. However, after being saved by Ryuunosuke, he wondered why he would save him if he gave off a bad impression as a rude boy. Then, he came to finally let go of all his troubles in the past after Mudou's defeat.
