Aragane Station Arc[]

Takumi worked at the Steam engines while being approached by Ikoma, who informed him about the trial he executed on his imperfect gun. Takumi suggested Ikoma to implant additional explosive power. Later on, the duo is tasked to repair the Koutetsujou, as Takumi berates Ikoma on looting the cartoid artery for his Kabane research.

After Ikoma got arrested for defending a suspicious civilian that was accused of being a Kabane, Takumi is seen having lunch with his fellow smiths, berating Ikoma for his actions, saying that he is a self-righteous idiot.

While boarding the Koutetsujou, Takumi and Ikoma are attacked by two Kabane, who are killed by Mumei. After being approached by the guards, they board the locomotive.

When Ikoma's Kabane heart is accidentally uncovered, Takumi and the rest of the civilians observed in fear, however, when Kurusu tried to throw Ikoma out of the locomotive, Takumi hopelessly attempts to stop him, mourning for his friend after he was thrown out. After Ikoma unblocked the bridge and saved everyone in the Koutetsujo, Takumi threw a hook for Ikoma to save himself, and is soon aided by Mumei.[4]

Journey to Kongoukaku Arc[]

Takumi is present when the group celebrated the triumph over Kabane.

When Ayame declares that the two Kanaberis will arrive to the Kongoukaku alongside civilians, Takumi willingly offered his blood in order to sate his friend's hunger.[5]
