Deimon Devil Bats (high school)
Akira Nakabo (中坊 明, Nakabō Akira), nicknamed "Chuubou", is a middle school student who participated in the World Youth Cup under Team Japan.
Youth World Cup Arc
Although he admires Sena's running, his position on the team is as a lineman. His given position seems to be a wise decision because he is able to perform the "Delta Dynamite," a block that needs precise timing which hits three points and causes the victim to lose balance (judging from chapter 311, when Chuubou uses the Delta Dynamite and stops Takeru Yamato and at the same time throws him off balance).
In the same chapter, Rikiya Gao exhibits interest in Chuubou after seeing his move. After the game against Russia, Gaou challenges Chuubou, which results in the latter losing. This causes Chuubou to train using the "Delta Dynamite," and eventually he teaches his senior and fellow lineman the technique. During the aftermath of the World Youth Cup, Chuubou finally becomes a member of the Deimon Devil Bats team.
