Overview

Arataki Itto (Japanese: あらたきいっ Arataki Itto) is a character in Inazuma who has been mentioned by various characters, NPCs and in bulletin boards. He is known for his largely one-sided rivalry with Kujou Sara after she defeated him and took his Vision.

Profile

Itto is likely a descendant of Arataki of the Front Gate, a famous martial artist in Inazuman history.[1] Based on the epithets he devises for himself, as well as physical descriptions other NPCs have given for him, he has oni blood in his veins.[2]

Personality

Despite describing him as "mean and overbearing," the rumors Rie recounts state that Itto "is not a thug" and, beyond trying to pick a fight with Sara at every turn, is generally a kind person, playing with children. However, he is also very competitive and insistent on winning: Shouta complains that his snacks are always taken by Itto when he wins,[3] Yoimiya states that he always forces friendly competitions with her, such as who can eat the most ramen,[4], and that he nearly killed himself in a eating competition with a "lady with kitsune ears" (perhaps referring to Yae Miko) by eating kitsune ramen, despite being aware that it contained fried tofu beans, which Oni are all allergic to.[5]

Unlike other victims of the Vision Hunt Decree, Itto — at least based on his messages — has not displayed the usual symptoms of listlessness and loss of ambition. Regardless, his fiery personality means that he often creates a racket wherever he goes.[6]

Appearance

Arataki Itto is described as tall, having a large build and two large horns, initially appearing to be scary at first glance.

Story

Itto was a Vision-bearer who had his Vision confiscated after being defeated by Kujou Sara of the Tenryou Commission, whom he always addresses as "Kujou Tengu"[7][8] or some variation thereof.[9] Ever since then, he has sought a rematch, following her throughout various islands on the archipelago and proclaiming his intent to fight the other on every single bulletin board, much to her consternation.[8]

Rie, while indirectly mentioning him, states that there are many rumors around him — some state that he is a bully and overbearing, while others state that he is a kind person who enjoys playing with children and setting up bug-fighting arenas. It is also revealed that he has a "gang" of sorts, but there is no information about them, apart from one known member, the "Kuki Ninja".[10]

It is unknown if Itto's Vision was returned to him following the abolishment of the Vision Hunt Decree.

Trivia

  • A running gag is that Arataki will always place a different epithet between his name, such as Arataki "The Supreme" Itto or Arataki "The Oni Sumo King" Itto.
  • Arataki Itto's (and by extension, all Oni's) allergic reaction to fried tofu beans is a reference to the Japanese tradition of mamemaki celebrated during Setsubun, in which beans are thrown at people wearing oni (or demon) masks to purify the household for the upcoming year.
