Akira Oonuki is Kaido Academy's aptitude scout who tries to pit Goro Shigeno against Toshiya Sato. Goro initially turns him down because he wants Toshi to get the scholarship and to continue being his rival he would play for another team. The chief instead tells Toshi he can't have the scholarship so that Goro would accept it. In the end, both refuse him.
After the Dream Island arc, Oonuki appears once more after Seishu's match against the Kaido Jr. team, in the anime however, this scene was cut off.
