Akira Kariya is a first year student and the deuteragonist of Try Knights.
Akira is a physically fit high school freshman with a shock of blonde hair and yellow eyes. Rather than the full uniform, Akira only wears brown slacks and a white shirt, nonchalantly unbuttoned, and with a loose tie.
With reflexes and fitness enough to excel at rugby, Akira nonetheless initially tries to avoid it until drawn back in by Riku Haruma. Together they have a strong, if fractious, friendship.
