“You think I'm a woman? Well, I'm often mistaken for one.”
His appearance is notorious for him being seen as a flat-chested girl often times by many, including Kotaro. He has a very slim body akin to that of an athletically-flexible girl, a white bob-cut hair, light lipstick and feminine eyelashes over his eyes with light-blue irises. His school and Taimanin outfits further add layers to his deceptive appearance.
Nao's personality completely contrasts his actual gender and makes his feminine appearance all the more deceptive. Nao has a liking on cute things like kittens or puppies, especially since he owns two kittens in his house. He also has a habit of cross-dressing, liking to wear in women's clothing, such as Gosha Academy's female student uniform or his own skin-tight female Taimanin suit.
Kaiju World War: Part 1 Edit
Nao is a first-year student in the Gosha Academy and a fellow Light-Style Jutsu user like his teacher and mentor Ryuunosuke Shirogane. Ryuunsouke sees Nao as one of his favorite students, which kind of puts him in a high regard. As a result, Nao becomes somewhat of an apprentice to Ryunosuke, receives rigorous training after rigorous training to hone the same power that his mentor has and is sent to missions.
