Aoi "Tora" Torasaki is a supporting protagonist in the light novel and anime series Absolute Duo. He is a first-year student at Kouryou Academy and the childhood friend and rival of Tooru Kokonoe, whom he trained with at the same dojo. Like Toru, Tora is considered an Irregular.

He is voiced by Natsuki Hanae in the Japanese version of the anime and Anthony Bowling in the English version.


Tora's has light brown hair which is short and cut a little like a bowl-cut, which comes down to at least his ears. He has sharp lime green colored eyes and he wears glasses and is quite small and short for his age. He is usually seen with the regular Kouryou Academy uniform. He is considerably shorter than Tor, though not quite as short as Julie.


Tora is generally a very cynical person. He is constantly suspicious about Sakuya Tsukomo's motives and considers all of the students in Kouryou Academy to be her "lab rats", himself included. He is quite competitive and frequently denies that Tor is his friend, instead calling him his rival and that they hung out at the same house simply because they trained at the same dojo. Despite his words, it's obvious that he cares for Tor, as he was understanding when he chose to team up with Julie when he had previously decided teaming up with him.

Tora is very confident in his abilities, often to a fault; while it is clear that he is a capable fighter, he has a habit of overestimating himself in almost every fight he's in, which repeatedly proves his undoing, and almost always acts before he thinks. Despite his arrogance, Tora is capable of acknowledging his classmates' strengths as well e.g. he is shocked upon learning that Julie can't swim, since up until then she had proved herself to be good at just about everything.
