Josei Shonan (3rd Year)
Masami Kikuchi (Japanese)
Wakato is the vice-captain of Josei Shonan. Known as the team's smug "idol" complete with screaming fangirls in tow (much to the consternation of his teammates), Wakato gets Jousei's singles off to a strong start with his flashy "Style of the Pretender" -- the ability to copy almost perfectly top-ranked pros. He enjoys taunting other players, but can lose his cool if the match starts to go south. Behind his laid-back playboy exterior is a perfectionist who spends hours practicing in secret to master his form.
Wakato has red-orange hair down to the nape of his neck, drooping violet eyes, and wears a white cap on and off the tennis courts. He, like the rest of his team, wear the traditional Josei Shonan tennis uniform which is predominantly light blue outlined with a darker shade of blue.
He has been known to copy such pros like Andre Agassi, Lleyton Hewitt, Pete Sampras, Boris Becker, Goran Ivanišević, etc. After determining his opponent's strengths and weaknesses, Wakato selects an appropriate counter style, but he can and does change style mid-match.
"Style of the Pretender" - Imitates play styles of top pros including signature moves, facial expressions and mannerisms. Can play baseline, serve and volley, etc.
Change Over - His signature move of when he changes to another playstyle and person. A nearly mahou shoujo display seen when swapping playstyles.
