Jirou is one of the members of the original and the ace striker of the Teikoku Academy team and a close friend of Yuuto Kidou. After Yuuto leaves Teikoku Academy and joins Raimon's team, he and Koujirou become part of Shin Teikoku Academy with Akio as the new captain. Jirou is still angry at Yuuto for leaving Teikoku Academy and is willing to use the dangerous forbidden Emperor Penguin No. 1 shot to defeat Raimon's team, despite Yuuto's protests. After a heated battle which ends in a tie, Jirou collapses from overusing Emperor Penguin No. 1 and is taken to the hospital. However, before that, he apologizes to Yuuto for taking things too far and they make peace, promising to play soccer together again sometime. After getting out of the hospital, Jirou is invited to the FFI recruitment match and eventually goes to the islands with the rest of Raimon's team to represent Japan. He, Yuuto and Akio are shocked to find Reiji is there, and investigate what their old coach is up to.
