A character from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.

Thank You Kasai[edit | edit source]

It's too early to call him elderly—a man who looks good with sunglasses and a suit.

An executive of the Sonozaki Corps. He looks mild-mannered, but rumor says he's got many heroic stories from his youth.

He often works for the mischievous Sonozaki Shion as a chaperone. He has a sweet tooth and is a heavy drinker. Simp.

TFR/Off-Season 7: Higurashi Daybreak Tournament[edit | edit source]

Non-Canon
Spends 4 hours looking at the panties of the entire cast. TYK.

TFR/Season 0[edit | edit source]

The Captain of the Sonozaki Family who often guards the main residence, he's semi-retired since receiving a leg and shoulder injuries. He has a long history with the Sonozaki as well as with Kiryu Kazuma and Matou Kariya.

Episode 4[edit | edit source]

Kasai's Akane irezumi

While guarding the Sonozaki Residence, the entrance is broken into by Leon S. Kennedy, and Kasai tries to drive the uninvited visitor away. Leon mentions Ada Wong, and Kasai states that despite knowing the name, they hold no relation to her, but as Leon refuses to listen, and despite his displeasure in doing so, Kasai intervenes. He removes his jacket revealing an Akane tattoo, just as Leon does an Ada one. Leon drunkenly does a shitty strategy that somehow works against the Shotgun Dragon, but makes for a shitty match.

Episode 5

From the start, Kasai had seen his noble intentions before the match and it didn't get him going. Being another simp man who has the beauty of a woman tattooed on his back, he is willing to give him a hand. Fred tells Leon that the GPS signal is actually pointing to a man inside the house, and Kasai offers them to talk to Steven Sonozaki, the Patriarch of the Sonozaki Family.

The three enter the residence and Kasai informs Steven of the two inquiring his presence, and through Steven's intense humbleness, he allows them to speak to him, and Kasai retires.

Episode 9

Steven and Kasai were at the Eden of Coolsville (as proven by Tomitake's photographs) before the truck hit the building. According to Date, Steven was left bedridden likely by the accident, and Kasai took him to the Sonozaki residence.

Episode 10

On the Sonozaki Residence, Kiryu finds out Steven is very sick, and he almost can't believe a man who could survive helicopter machine-gun fire would, somehow, fall ill. Kiryu and Kasai talk about recent events and Kasai mentions the Shimano Family being on the move, likely because of Steven's condition, and that this might be the Sonozaki's greatest conflict yet. But somehow, that's not what's bothering Kasai, because something more terrifying than even that has surfaced; the thing that was found near the are where Steven lost consciousness was... a Keyboard.

Episode 11[edit | edit source]

As Kasai explains their enemies will put all organized crime at risk with the use of such weapons, Kiryu is astounded.

After crawling from swamp at the back of the Sonozaki Residence, the leader of the Avatars of Allah and an old rival of the Sonozaki Family, Osama bin Laden, appears behind Kiryu, who's surprised to see him after all this time alive. Osama comes with the intentions to reveal the truth however, for the sake of the two followers of Allah he met in prison that taught him so much, and reveals what he was looking for in prison in the first place. The bank records situate the moving of huge amounts of money.

The documents bring Kiryu back to the Keyboards Incident, where Cawdy betrayed them, Sudou Tatsuzou used everyone to further his goals, and his brother Kariya sacrificed his life to take out Sudou with the explosives at the top of the Millennium Tower. The documents reveal that everything was funded by "Rob Wellington".

Osama wants to correct his actions from being on Sudou's payroll back then, and this time stop their plan from coming to fruition. Their contact in the Coolsville Police Department is amassing keyboards at the docks, so Kiryu decides to go with Osama to stop them.

Episode 13

During the war of the Sonozaki and Shimano families, Chris, Kiryu and Steven are backed into a corner by the sheer numbers of the Shimano family, until Kasai arrives with two truckloads of reinforcements after being delayed defending the Sonozaki state with Leo. Kasai and Steven mow down the enemy forces, while Kiryu and Chris deliver a deadly double punch to Shimano, Chris loses it for a moment, but Kiryu reminds him no matter how many of his friends Shimano has killed, as a main character he can't afford to stoop to his level, and Chris just takes the key as him and Kiryu turn around for the police to take care of him. Suddenly, Shimano draws out a hidden Keyboard and throws it at Kiryu, but Steven blocks it, and Shimano intends to throw one at Chris, before suddenly being shot in the head by an unknown assailant, which Chris chalks up to a stray bullet.

The now dying Steven tells Kiryu he's the only true heir to Aikido, putting an end to the yakuza was his only choice since he was indebted to him, and more importantly, he hopes Kiryu can forgive him since of the parents of all the children at the orphanage... he snatched their punani. Steven passes away as he wishes Kiryu to continue to protect the Sonozaki Family, and the three former members of Evolution arrive to inform that the entire Evolution Alliance is on the move...

Episode 14

Having learned of Hazz Maticus' true intentions, Leon Kennedy and Fred Jones inform Kiryu's friends and along The Cagist, Date Kaname and Suou Katsuya arrive to the top of Coolsville Hills in an helicopter, just after Hazz is done explaining how he hid his past in his son, artificially aged himself, and faked his own death. Before Hazz can end Kiryu, Leon and Fred drop down and confront him, as Kiryu is taken away in the helicopter. Hazz's presidential guard of 4 S.W.A.T. Members challenges them, but, they are mowed down by the paranormal patrol, and at last Hazz fights them directly with the S.W.A.T. Captain. Despite all this power, his plan, his gun, and his complex old age, Hazz couldn't stop Leon and Fred from ending his reign and saving China, not only because they had apple juice and a dilapidated van, but comrades by their side; Kiryu Kazuma... Suou Katsuya... Date Kaname... Shoji Shingo... Majima Goro and his brother... Warden Osborne... Officer Joe... Osama bin Laden... Kasai Tatsuyoshi... Van Darkholme... The Cagist... Hanyuu... Extra... Vergil... Dante... HUNK... Zagreus... Ryback, Chris Masters, Sheamus... Narihisago Akihito... Zoomer... Tomitake Jirou... Hassan and Kojima... Chuck... and Gregory Edgeworth... all irreplaceable people whose bonds have carried them to defeat him.

Before Kiryu had left, he visited the Sonozaki residence; since he was Steven's aikido heir, he was the next in line to be patriarch... but he gave that up, and passed the chance to the twins, he's sure they'll make Steven proud, as long as Kasai is there to protect them.

TFR/Season 7[edit | edit source]

Continues acting as a bodyguard for the Sonozaki Family matriarchs.

TFR/Season 8[edit | edit source]

Since the Sonozaki Family decided to move their focus from their yakuza operations to expanding and supporting their legal businesses with their illegal assets, Kasai thought things would become calmer, but...

Episode 5

As Kiryu wastes himself away at the Survive Bar, The Bartender tells him the one thing he knows: "Even if you can't change everything, even if you can't control your past... you can still defy your destiny". Luckily, seems like Kiryu won't have to drink alone anymore.

Our of nowhere, Kasai Tatsuyoshi enters the bar. It's a long story why he's here, but he heard the news, Kiryu begins lamenting about the shadows of the past finally catching up for doing the wrong things, but Kasai paints a different story: He might not be the most knowledgeable about these things, but a video like that takes time, and coming upon all the stuff in the video just a few hours after arson?―it can't be coincidence.

Just as it dawns on Kiryu, the sound of a car violently stopping resounds outside the bar. Kasai guesses it must be the Yamai Syndicate catching up with him, since he's been keeping them away from the rest of the family. Yamai Yutaka enters the bar and playfully taunts Kasai about his hiding away, before noticing the legendary dragon himself is there. As the most famous criminal on Coolsville right now, his head must be worth a ton, so Yamai calls his henchman Sasame Ojiro to take care of them, as Kiryu and Kasai prepare to fight together on Steven's name.

It really was the Dragon of Kojima after all... Yamai noticed his useless henchman unable to fight anymore and disengaged, but he never thought he'd see him with his own two eyes. Before leaving, Kiryu demands to know what his business with the Sonozakis is, but Yamai thinks that would be... boring, in fact he's already bored of this place, and leaves until their next meeting. As Kasai curses that damn asshole, he urges on Kiryu to go check the others together since they've hid in the family restaurants; Kiryu doubts if he should involve with them with the current situation, but he owes an eternal debt to Steven and the Sonozaki, and Kasai is happy to have him back.

Episode 6

Kasai knocks on the backdoor of the Angel Mort, and a Sonozaki mook opens the door–safer to not be seen by customers, he says. Inside, Akane, Mion, Shion, and Leo Shishigami all greet Kiryu after so long. Kiryu didn't initially know the Sonozaki Family operated Angel Mort, but he's heard much about the place from the orphanage kids, and Shion intersects that it's all thanks to her genius: she worked part-time on the first Angel Mort operated by her uncle, and after 'spicing it up' with the uniforms and Leo's idea for the menu, it became such a huge success that all their uncles and distant relatives wanted to run a joint! Mion grunts that she helped too, and Leo was surprised at being able to come up with a dessert menu since his specialty was mixing drinks. Kiryu says Steven would be proud for them to find such an ingenious way for legitimate Yakuza business, but Akane's mood changes drastically... the reason they are on the run is because many of the subsidiary families joined due to the late Steven's unmatched strength and charisma, and are not pleased with the civil direction of the family instead of fighting in the turf war against Mafia City, and have not accepted Mion and Shion even with Akane teaching them. Such groups have banded together under the Sumadera Family and diverted away. Because of an assassination attempt on Akane which forces her to be carried by Leo, Mion blames themselves for not keeping them in a tighter leash, and Shion should've never trusted that bitch Kyrie... Kiryu can hardly believe someone who has helped the family for so long would do this. But Akane believes they can tough it out as long as they have the Ceremonial Handbell used to declare the next head of the family, for their lack of unity will make them claw each other's throats to take power, as succession won't be acknowledged otherwise. All of these things happening, Kiryu blames himself for all of them, from leaving the family before making sure they could succeed safely, to throwing the weight of declaring them the next heads on such young shoulders, Kiryu blames his lack of responsibility, but Mion, Shion and Akane protest that he's being foolish and speaking nonsense while being too hard on himself.

Suddenly, it seems the customers are making too much of a ruckus when Shion realizes they aren't really customers. The yakuza guarding the door staps Kiryu in the name of the Matou Family, shocking Akane as they were supposedly disbanded long ago. As Kiryu reminisces about Kariya, a strangely familiar yet unknown voices says the Matou Family were forcefully disbanded and distributed across other families, but never forgot their hatred for the Dragon of Kojima. Akane is shocked when that man appears, and after him comes another ghost, Hayashi Hiroshi appears to tell Kiryu how good a job Kieran's been doing, since it's his brother's kid after all. The man that shared Kiryu's Way of the Virgin having a secret son is beyond shocking, with Kieran telling him his 10 years in the joint must've gotten him senile unless his father really didn't tell him, but either way, he's here to make the Sonozaki Family respected again. Kasai orders Leo to protect the family while he supports Kiryu, who steels himself to face Kariya's son since it's what Steven would do.

Even with all his years of hardwork, Hayashi and Kieran fall while stating this isn't the end. After escaping to the next safehouse, Akane tells Kiryu that the Sonozaki Estate has fallen too and they've taken it as stronghold. Everyone decides to rest for the time being resting... everyone but a dragon and demon.

Episode 11[edit | edit source]

The Sonozaki Estate houses some of the Dragon of Kojima's allies, discussing the current situation. Date Kaname laments at how he never changes, always recklessly risking himself, and now his higher ups won't even let him keep tabs on him. But Akane says the secrecy makes sense; with how the media's been treating him, his higher ups might want to keep the friendship between the Dragon of Kojima and a high-ranked agent from making rumors. And Kasai thinks they've probably moved him to a secure place where a guy like him couldn't escape anytime he wanted, although of course his guilty conscience would never allow him to do such a thing. But still, Date can't help but feel utterly useless; he promised he'd clear Jackson's name, and still has nothing to show for it!

Mizuki barges into the room to tell Date to stop complaining, whom he though was busy "being a teenager" with Mion and Shion, but she reiterates that the only angsty 14yo is himself. Following her in, Mion finds it weird that Mizuki calls him "Date" while being Date herself, but Shion smugly theorizes she must call him "papa" whenever they are alone, which Mizuki tries to deny as lies, yet Aiba suddenly announces there's no lie to be found, making Mizuki threaten to stuff her back in Date's socket, which Aiba claims wouldn't be very entertaining since she'd just solve all his problems in a jiffy. The situation makes Akane smirk as someone else around also never changes.

Still, Akane thanks Kiryu from the bottom of her heart; when they were in a pinch, Kiryu singlehandedly ended the nightmarish situation they had been living for weeks, facing an entire clan alone without any regard for himself, Akane can't understate what a man he is... Date despondently agrees. Their mission is clear, as Akane proclaims they must save Kiryu... from himself. Date warns that Kyrie and Rudolf are still out there, which Akane agrees as she bets they're already on the move, which is why they can't lag behind, so she went and got in contact with someone who's willing to help. A shivering person complains about how damn cold the place is, as Yamai Yutaka enters the room and wonders why she didn't chose a more candid place (like a candlelight dinner), and although Date is unsure from his past allegations, Yamai points out they are "past" since the Dragon wiped them, and besides, they were never direct subordinates of the Sumaderas since it was merely a small business agreement (that fell apart). He reminisces that back in Steven's days the underworld was good and all, but right now there's more lucrative deals for an independent family such as his'.

As far as Kyrie goes anyways, he just joined since she'd let him have Akane if the coup was successful; he knows a devoted widow would never be with scum like him otherwise. Akane snidely calls him disgusting, but Yamai relishes the insult, Kasai joining in to appreciate him being a man of culture, and Date adding that Akane is, after all, very attractive, explaining why a powerful man like Steven fell for her... Mizuki offers to slap them, but Mion instead tells Shion to get "it", as she diligently goes to get her taser, to Date's dismay. Kyrie herself, Yamai reflects, isn't half bad, but isn't quite ripe yet for another five-to-ten years, and that pinch of malice adds the perfect spice, Date comprehending the appeal and adding that she has a great bone structure to boot!

Coughing back into topic, Akane admits she's been deep in thinking, wondering what could've caused her to take the risk; not just the betrayal, but having no contingency, which is uncharacteristic of her. She wouldn't do anything without having extreme confidence in its success, and there's no way she didn't take the Dragon of Kojima's return into account. It's gotta be something in her sleeve, Kasai assures, and it'll be a problem until they deal with it. Date brusquely changes the topic to the Matou Family; wondering if they are legit, and why would they be after Kiryu. Kasai responds that it's too long a story, but they consist of not only old members and fanatics, but also remnants of other families and gangs: Shimano Family, Evolution, even those who worked under "Il Drago". Basically, any enemy of Kiryu is free to join them. A family that was once a cornerstone of the clan, now reduced to a machine moved by pure hatred... but it's to be expected, considering the man who considers himself Kiryu's archenemy, Hayashi Hiroshi, is not only prominent in their business and their de-facto leader, but mentoring Kieran and nurturing his hatred... he must hope that Kieran's hatred grows strong enough, that through hard work a foe worthy of ending the Dragon once and for all will be born. Apparently, Akane heard he came to the Sumadera clan himself, but why, considering Kyrie is responsible for his mother's fate in the first place. Akane wonders, if maybe his hatred stems from his mother's obsession with Kariya, who abandoned them because he only had eyes for Jill Stingray... only to have her "stolen" by Kiryu, Kasai finishes.

Finally Date understands, Kieran is suffering from some sort of intergenerational, father-to-son cuck rage... that's a great idea, actually. Date begins salivating wondering if there's any online stuff like that (like the, uh, "husbandry" videos he keeps at home), and hastily asks Aiba if she can jump in for a sec for some important research–ZAP!–one too many chances, Shion remarks; Mizuki asks to let her do him next, but Mion wisely tells her kouhai to wait until he wakes up.
