— Akechi, Rampo Kitan episode 8

Kogoro Akechi, known mostly by his last name (アケチ Akechi), is a protagonist in the anime Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace. He is a young genius detective who has permission to take off school to help in solving cases and is dependent on canned coffee. He continues to follow a certain case.

Appearance Edit

Akechi has short dark hair and piercing red eyes. He is normally seen in a dark blue jacket, black shirt, red tie, jeans and leather shoes.

When he was younger he attended the middle school Kobayashi and Hashiba currently attend, meaning he used to wear the same uniform.

Personality Edit

Akechi has a laidback but somewhat irritable personality, easily getting annoyed at small things such as Kobayashi and Hashiba not taking their shoes off in his apartment. He particularly gets annoyed at Black Lizard, who he seems to have a former relationship with but still consults for advice if he needs to.

He, like Kobayashi, does not remember the faces of anyone insignificant to him. This is portrayed as having wooden artist posed dolls in place of them.

Relationships Edit

Kobayashi: Kobayashi is his (self-appointed) assistant. Akechi normally does not tolerate Kobayashi's antics, but does have some respect for the younger boy's deductive skills.

Hashiba: has good chemistry with Akechi, working well together along with Kobayashi. Thanks to Hashiba's background, he can also provide resources for the mission at hand.
