Naoki was the second-in-command of the Schwartz Katze. His mother died in the terrorist attacks, and he shared this bond with Ryo Kurosawa and the other members.

Before the Program[]

During the Program[]

Naoki survives Mission 1: "Landing", and during the beach advance, his group is separated from Ryo's. He, Jun Nanami, and the other few members of his group take part in the Ammo Retrieval mission and are eventually caught in the forested minefield. Although six of his group are killed in this area, he and Jun, another member of Schwartz Katze, as well as a select few, survive to rendezvous with Ryo's group. During the assault mission, the groups merge and attack the Wild Seven's HQ en masse. Naoki attacks the base with great vigor as the group of surviving students reaches the narrow entrance. When the survivors file into the base, explosives are set off, which send Naoki and some others into the water. The Wild Seven appear, ambushing the group and telling them to disarm. The majority of the group surrenders, with the exception of Ryo, Jun, Naoki, Maho Nosaka, and Yasuaki Hosaka. Naoki suggests, however, that Ryo, Jun and himself should surrender, but Kurosawa begins yelling about their murdered family members and refuses to lay down his weapon. Ryo argues with a Wild Seven-affiliated child named Toki, blaming the terrorist group for their sufferings, while Toki speaks of the harm done to them by the government. Toki says they all share a common enemy, but before a truce can be called, Maho fires into the Wild Seven's ranks, killing Toki and sparking a swift and bloody gunfight. Naoki begins firing as well, and is quickly and brutally dispatched with a bullet to the head. With his death, Risa Shindo's collar activates, but she's saved when Maki Souda activates the EMB, disabling the collars.
