ito keita

rookie teacher

I'm going to do my best to be a teacher everyone can rely on.
Keita is back in GH2 as a brand new history teacher at Bell Liberty! He's the assistant homeroom teacher for Yuki's class, and because he's so young and a graduate of the school, he's popular with the students, who feel like he's much easier to relate to than Professor Sakaki. He's also a bit famous as the student who won the legendary MVP Battle seven years ago.

story intro

As a side character, Keita doesn't play a huge role in the game. He's just started at Bell Liberty as a history teacher, and is already popular with the students because he's friendly and a bit of a derp. He's still friends with Kazuki (or lovers, depending on how you play it) and has been asked to keep an eye on Tomo while Kazuki is working abroad.

In the common route, Keita will talk about the MVP Battle and offers advice to Yuki on how to choose a partner. He also plays a small role in some character routes, providing some information about the history of the school.

personality

Keita hasn't changed much since the original game, though he seems to have developed a bit more self-confidence as part of growing up. He's a kind teacher who does his best to help the students, and is well-liked as a result. Like Yuki, he believes in the goodness of other people and has a hard time imagining that someone would purposely want to close the school.

Sakaki Sojiro - coworker
Keita looks up to Sakaki as a veteran teacher and his senior. He respects Sakaki's dedication to his work, especially the creation of customized homework and tests for his students. Sakaki tends to use Keita as his errand boy and leaves him to deal with things he finds annoying, like watching over the students. Keita has faith in Sakaki and doesn't believe that he's actually siding with the board of directors.

Matsuoka Jin - coworker
Seven years ago, Keita learned about the accident in the Suzubishi research lab that left Yoshizumi Hiroya in a coma, and volunteered himself to help with the research that led to his recovery. Thus, it's no surprise that Dr. Matsuoka is still friends with Keita seven years later. The two of them are also friends with Kazuki, and they watch over Tomo in his place while Kazuki is working abroad.


character data sheet

The following information is a translation of the character data sheet that was provided on the preorder bonus CD. These character sheets are more like lists of random notes than a detailed character profile, so don't expect this to be terribly coherent. :3

Please be aware that these are early development notes and information may differ slightly from the finished game.

personality

strong point: positive, kind, sympathetic to the students
weak point: sometimes careless

The same as the previous game, only he's become an adult over those seven years.

special remarks

The assistant homeroom teacher for the main character's class. He is a new teacher who was just hired this year. He gives advice to the students, and can talk about the history of the school.

personal history

Seven years ago he transferred to BL School under unusual circumstances. Became the school MVP. After graudating school, he continued on to university. He got his teaching qualifications. He was hired for his new job at BL School this year.
*He was hired on his own merit, not through connections.

additional information (revealed in-game)

He was asked by Kazuki (the previous-previous director and Kasahara's guardian) to support Kasahara and report about the condition of the school. Matusoka also knows that information and lends his support too.

additional information (about Keita's possible lovers)

Kazuki: The same year that Keita graduated, he turned over the directorship to Nao. Currently, as a candidate to be the next president of Suzubishi, he is working in America for the Group's drug manufacturing and insurance divisions. With the sudden death of the previous director, he became Tomo's guardian, but because he is so busy, he has asked new teacher Keita and Matsuoka to offer emotional support. Since he heard about the school from Nao, he predicted that Assistant Director Sakaki would come around to the school's side. After the events of the game, he takes care of Tomo. He makes the two's names uniformly "Suzubishi."
