Mini-Bio While his captain Yukimura Seiichi was MIA, 15-year-old Sanada, nicknamed the Emperor, stepped up to the plate and led the team to its third consecutive bid for the National title. Sanada does not tolerate defeat and uses violence to reprimand his teammates. Although he and Yanagi Renji have been on the team together since their first year, Sanada was unwilling to forgo Yanagi's loss at the Kantou finals. This is all because they promised Yukimura that the team would be undefeated. Like Yanagi, Sanada was also unable to fulfill the promise, losing to Echizen Ryoma. Sanada's history with Tezuka Kunimitsu started before junior high when Tezuka humiliated Sanada in an unofficial match. Sanada was finally able to get revenge three years later at the National Tournament. At home, Sanada practices the katana.

"Immovable like a Mountain" - Before developing Koori no Sekai, Atobe Keigo was unable to rise above Zan.
"Strike like Lightning (Raitei)" - One of Sanada's two ultimate techniques, Rai was sealed for the purpose of defeating Tezuka. It incapacitated Tezuka's Hyaku Ren Jitoku no Kiwami.
