Kyōma Mabuchi (マブチ・キョーマ Mabuchi Kyōma ) is a Recovery man from Mary's Recovery House and partner of Mira Yurizaki. He is also later revealed to be one of the few survivors of the now defunct anti-coil unit Grendel.
AppearanceEditHe has short spiky black hair, a short braid in the back, sideburns that go down to his chin, and a small beard with a goatee and deep black eyes. He also seems to have what appears to be a short vertical scar in the middle of his lower lip.
Kyōma is also distinct in his style of dress, a combination of modern and traditional Japanese. He wears a red happi coat with the light green power symbol on its back, a blue gi with a black and gray-striped sash, black undershirt, black pants with three white horizontal stripes on the upper left leg, large blue straps on the lower legs, and sandals with black socks and blue straps. The interior of his happi is lined with pockets that hold his signature Skewers.
Kyoma is rough-mannered, sardonic and somewhat anti-social. Kyōma likes to live in the past, with a love for vintage cars and hatred of coils.
Kyōma's boss at the Recovery House, who assigns most of his coil-hunting missions and rewards him with hefty amounts of money, although he takes half his pay in gasoline.
A mysterious android girl who Kyōma encountered on one of his missions, eventually becoming his partner. Due to his dislike of coil-driven tech, he always calls her "Robot" or "Piece of Junk" and thinks very little of her. Despite this, he allowed her to live in a trailer outside his gas station. He slowly comes to accept her as a person as the series progresses. After the Easter Island incident, their relationship improves drastically and he treats her with much more respect and even affection. After later joining up with Mira and Kyoma and witnessing Kyoma's rough but caring attitude towards Mira, Ellie has slyly insinuated that Kyoma may be falling for Mira, much to his annoyance and slight embarassment.
Miyabi was the woman that Kyōma encountered stuck in between a bus and a wall. Eventually, they became devoted lovers. However, due to an accident with a coil, Miyabi loses her life and thus drives Kyōma's hatred towards coils.
Kyōma Mabuchi was born in 2039 in Tokyo, Japan. As a child, he only had his father since his mother passed away while giving birth to him. His father was a car mechanic, but with the discovery of the Dimension W and its unlimited energy, fossil fuels soon became a thing of the past.
As a veteran of Grendel, Kyōma is an expert fighter and hand-to-hand combatant. He can hold his own against multiple stronger opponents and is fast enough to dodge gunfire from a hovercraft. His weapon of choice are several needle-like throwing knives called Skewers, sharp enough to destroy illegal coils and blow out a car tire. His accuracy when throwing his skewers in nearly impeccable. He will also wield them as claws for close-range combat. Some of the knives are attached to indestructible wires and are used for restraining opponents and reaching higher areas. He will even use specialized knives that contain powerful explosive charges. As a member of Grendel, he also used Coil-powered needles called Spin-darts that could penetrate energy barriers and explode when thrown. His happi coat is also composed of steel-woven fiber, making it similar to chain mail and almost impossible to burn or cut through.
Kyōma is an equally skilled mechanic, a talent likely picked up from his father. He is sometimes shown successfully repairing his ride, a requirement in an era where gas-powered cars have become obsolete.
- It is worth noting that manga chapter 1 Kyōma's outfit bears a striking resemblance to Mugen from "Samurai Champloo".
- Kyōma's car is a Toyota 2000GT. The other car used by Kyoma was a 2012 Lexus LFA
- He typically holds his skewers between his fingers, giving them them the appearance of Marvel's Wolverine's Adamantium Claws.
