Shūta Morishima as Pearce Valentine Shotani, a first year high school student who bounces from club to club as a "sports club supporter". Pearce is very athletic and has good reflexes, so he excels at most sports. Pearce is the easily excitable type, and his pet phrase is "enjoy & excite!".

Seiichiro is good at both academics and athletics and he is well-respected by everyone. He taught Akira Kariya how to play rugby in middle school, but in the present day he's leaving the club for some reason...
