AppearanceEditTakeda is a young man with a muscular build, dark skin, and blue hair. He is considered one of the most attractive men at his school and usually seen in his school uniform with bandages on his wrists from his training. He's most often seen with a blade of grass in his mouth in an attempt to look cooler. Since undergoing intense training under James Shiba, Takeda's build has become noticeably more defined. Recently, Shigure has given him Steel Arm Guards, along with the rest of the Shinpaku Alliance.
In the original series, Takeda had a drastically different appearance. In fact, his design is probably the most changed after Ma Sougetsu. He had lighter skin, a crew cut, and looked more "Japanese". He still had a similar personality though.
