Kōtarō Takebayashi is a student in class 3-E of Kunugigaoka Junior High School, taught by Korosensei.

Appearance

Takebayashi has black hair combed over along the sides of his head and wears round eyeglasses. His uniform consists of a suit jacket worn over a dress shirt and a black tie, aswell as a dress pants and dress shoes.

Personality

Takebayashi is mostly a quiet person. However, he seems somewhat eccentric in his behavior and stands out as the oddball in the class. He also seems to be clumsy at physical activity, having ping pong balls hit his glasses while playing with others and nearly losing balance in one of Tadaomi Karasuma's lessons.[1][2] He initially wanted to leave E class and seemed ashamed to be in the class but decided to stay when he realized how much his class and Koro Sensei cared for him and vice versa. He is also obsessed with anime, at one point stating "A girl isn't a true girl until she loses the third D" implying he likes anime girls more than real women. He also enjoys going to maid cafes.

History

Takebayashi's family have been doctors for generations. His elder brothers are all in Tokyo university in the medical departments. As such there is enormous pressure for him to suceed and is considered the outcast of the family.

After the assassination of Koro-sensei, Takebayashi was last seen working with Okuda to expand the medical research based on Koro-sensei's legacy using revitalizing slime recipes that can make an universal blood which can transfused to any blood type.

Abilities

Analytical Skills: During the Class-E’s baseball practice, Takebayashi has been assigned to gather data on the team’s performance. He has shown to have quite good observational skills like Shiota, but, unlike the latter, Takebayashi is inclined towards statistical data and analysis as opposed to emotional and practical knowledge.

Risk Management: During the Summer trip in Chapter 61, Takebayashi has display Risk Management Skills. When some members of class 3-E got infected by an unknown virus, Takebayashi disagreed with Terasaka's suggestion of taking the infected classmates to a big city hospital because of risk factors associated with the unknown virus & high unlikely chance of an effective anti-virus.[3] This is also further demonstrated in Chapter 63. While tending some of the infected class E members, [4] his observation concluded that the unknown virus was likely oral transmission over contamination.

Explosives Specialist: Takebayashi is the explosives manager for Class 3-E, as he easily memorizes the usage of explosives when assigned by Karasuma. He demonstrates this ability when he uses a shaped charge to infiltrate the God of Death's complex, using his smuggled explosives set to escape from captivity in Chapter 167, and distracting Houjou with flash bangs.

Academics: In the second semester finals, Taebayashi has the fifth highest overall score, at 447.

Although he and Manami Okuda rarely talked in school and in activities, they are later teaming up to conduct research for null null RH- blood type seven years later using legacy of Korosensei. Gaining impression of the superior scientist, they start working on researching it further.
