Shingetsu Rei

Rei excited to meet Yuma in person.

Later, Rei overhears Yuma wishing to Duel pro-Duelist Daisuke Katagiri and took upon the task of getting Yuma a Duel by himself. Once Rei found Katagiri, he tried to make his request, but was shocked to find that he is brainwashed by the Barian World. Katagiri then Duels Rei in hopes to find where Yuma lives, but Rei refuses to give him any information and is brutally defeated.

Officially friends, Rei then carries off Yuma while running, oblivious to Yuma's screaming.[1].

When the class was electing a class president, Rei nominated Yuma, and when Yuma won, Rei voiced his congrats. During lunch, Rei learns of the Super Secret Number Cards Investigation Club from Yuma's friends and asked Bronk Stone for membership. They are interrupted by Caswell, who has been assigned "Special Disciplinary Commander", and are shocked when he starts to enforce rules upon the school. Later, Rei secretly watched Yuma Duel against Mamoru Jinguji by the gym pool with a concerned look. After Yuma wins, Rei accepted Caswell's apologies and is later seen with Yuma talking about relinquishing his position as class president to Caswell.[2].

After school one day, Rei was walking with Yuma and his friends when Chitaro Ariga asked Yuma to be his model for his manga, with Rei expressing excitement for Yuma. Later, Rei tagged along with Yuma and Tori Meadows to visit Rio Kastle at the hospital, bringing fruits and snacks for Rio, but Tori reminded him that Rio couldn't eat since she was unconscious at the time. They encountered Reginald Kastle and was shocked to hear that his sister was missing. When a Barian-brainwashed Chitaro appeared and challenged Shark to a Duel, Rei watched and cheered Shark on. As Shark was losing due to Chitaro threatening Rio, Rei goes along with Yuma to search for Chitaro's sketchbook in hopes to find his weakness. At school, Rei and Yuma found Chitaro's manga about his Duel and informed Shark over his Duel Gazer that it ends with Shark losing and Rio not being saved. As Yuma urged Shark to continue Dueling for his sister, Rei watched the rest of the Duel over Yuma's Duel Gazer and was happy Shark won in the end.[5]
