Sadakyo, or Kiyoshi Sada is the new English substitute teacher at Kanna's high school. He was one of Kenji's old classmates. As a child he was always bullied and wore a mask.


About Chapter Two:

Sadakito is a very sad man. He was bullied as a child and he feels oppressed as an adult, too. He works as a school teacher but still believes in UFO's and cherishes a robot toy from his childhood. I guess he's immature. But he's also protective of his students and I wanted to emphasise that side of him, too. I felt sad playing this character, so it was very helpful to talk to Airi Taira who played Kanna and Haruka Kinami who played Kyoko Koizumi between takes for a change of pace.
