People just watching have no right telling me what to do! I made it this far on my strength alone. I've done everything to move forward!
— Yasutomo Arakita

Yasutomo Arakita is a second-year student at Yonan University and a member of Yonan University Bicycle Racing Club. During his high school, he studied on Hakone Academy and was a member of the Hakone Academy Bicycle Racing Club, which he worked as Juichi Fukutomi's assist in races.


In the past, Yasutomo styled his black hair into a pompadour, but he cut it off shortly after his first run-in with Juichi. His hair was quite short afterwards, but his bangs have grown out into his current hairstyle, still short, but long enough to reach his narrow eyes. He is easily identifiable by the eyelashes on his lower eyelids and his expressive mouth, which is often open wide enough to see his gums. In the movie, Yasutomo's hair has a brown tint.


Yasutomo has a bad mouth and is a competitive cyclist. He adds the suffix "-chan" onto the names or nicknames of certain people (Juichi, Sakamichi Onoda, Sangaku Manami, and sometimes Yukinari Kuroda), a habit that doesn't seem to match his otherwise gruff behavior. The nicknames appear to be more playful than derogatory, as they are only given to people who he finds impressive and acknowledges. He tends to pronounce it as "-chaan" rather than "-chan". Yasutomo often complains about being tired or overworked, but he still pushes himself to his limits in races.

Skills and Techniques

Yasutomo can ride at dangerous angles, even leaning over far enough to brush against the guardrail that runs along the road and his pedals hitting against the ground. He may just seem to be disregarding his safety, but this riding style is a testament to his skill. He is considered a strong puller by Juichi, especially on flats and downhill sections, and he did help Manami and Onoda, two climbers beat Hiroshima's three sprinters in the 20m lead race.
