Toujou about Shinji in Party Boys

Toujou Hideaki is a student of Seidou High School. Back in middle school school, he played as a pitcher for Matsukata Senior League that made it to the best 4 in the Nationals.

AppearanceEdit

Toujou is a slim-built teenager of average height. He has medium-length caramel brown hair and grey eyes.

CharacterEdit

Toujou was the starting pitcher who got obliterated during the practice match with their 2nd string seniors. It was later revealed that Toujou lost 12 points in the first inning alone and 15 points in total before he was subbed out in the 2nd inning[1]. He realized afterwards that the reality of high school baseball is that whatever credit they had before does not count, specially in a prestigious team with national-level players.[2]

Toujou accepted the fact that he has batchmates who were all unknown before went past him as first string. Despite this, he still made effort to train more while the varsity members played for the summer tournament. Toujou prioritized his fielding on whatever position the coach might appoint him, creating threats to other aspirants such as Seki Naomichi and Asou Takeru.[2] His performance soon led him to land as a center fielder of Seidou's baseball team after the third years retired.

It was revealed that Toujou still want to make a come back as a pitcher in his 2nd year in Seidou and he has been volunteering to be a batting practice pitcher so that he could work on his pitching.[1] Toujou got his high school debut as a pitcher in a practice game against Asari High after Kataoka asked him to fill the gap in the pitching staff from Furuya's absence due to injury.[3]

Relationships with other charactersEdit

Kanemaru ShinjiEdit

In middle school, Toujou was on the same baseball team as Kanemaru. The two appear to get along well. Toujou seems to like giving impromptu nicknames to Kanemaru, like "party boy"[4] during their match against Yakushi.

Kuki Youhei Edit

Kuki seems to have a very close relationship with Kanemaru and especially Toujou whom he respects both as a senpai and as a pitcher. Seeing Kuki looking discouraged for being selected into the 2nd string despite his poor performance result in the intrasquad game, Toujou cheers him up by sharing about his own devastating experience as a pitcher in his first year at Seidou while praising the determination Kuki demonstrated on the mound. Toujou then inspires Kuki by challenging him to a race to become the first string pitcher of Seidou stating he himself haven't given up on being a pitcher yet. [1]

SkillsEdit

Although Toujou's pitching was not utilized in his first year in Seidou and he made a switch to an outfielder and worked on his batting to qualify for the first string; members of the team however still recognize his skills.[5] He's not a power pitcher, but has good control which he has constantly been working on as a practice batting pitcher in his 2nd year.[6][3]. Toujou got an opportunity to pitch in a practice game against Arisa after Kataoka asked him to fill in Furuya's gap. Possessing the Curveball and Slider as his breaking pitches, Toujou is capable of locating his pitch low and induce lots of ground balls and is seems to be more of a pitching-to-contact type of pitcher.[3]

His pitching became his asset as center fielder, not only because he has a strong arm, but also control over the direction of the ball. He is much like the former center fielder Isashiki Jun when it comes to throwing and although Toujou does not howl, he can hit odd balls and is a very consistent batter with high on base average.
