Main Story[edit | edit source]
Sota is first encountered with Nao, as living characters, by Neku and Shiki as they attempt to promote the Red Skull pins. However, in the Tin Pin Slammer Challenge on the second day of Week 2, they are encountered as Players. When Neku loses the challenge, Sota goes on to win it after Joshua secretly breaks Shooter's pin launcher, therefore completing the mission for that day.
Later, on the fourth day, Neku and Joshua run into both Sota and Nao again. Here Neku tells them about Shiki being his entry fee. Sota convinces Neku not to give up hope, and that he must truly care about Shiki to go through so much for her. This exchange also leads the Composer's decision to spare Shibuya.
On Day 6, when the Taboo Noise attack players and reapers, Neku and Joshua witness Nao being erased. They jump in to save Sota from the same fate, although they know this is impossible, as a player can only exist in the UG for seven minutes without their partner. Sota disappears with just enough time to tell Neku not to blame himself.
Another Day[edit | edit source]
Sota is Neku's barber and he can be played in Tin Pin twice.
