Personality[]

Masatora Akutsu carries a heavy duality within him. On the surface, he's an ordinary high school student, juggling academic pressures and social interactions. This facade masks his true identity – the cold and efficient assassin known as Akatsuki.

Driven by an unwavering love for his deceased sister, Masatora made a pact with a mischievous angel, Lily Amane, trading his morals for a chance at her revival. This pact comes at a steep price, forcing him down a path of violence and guilt.

As Akatsuki, Masatora embraces a ruthless persona, efficiently eliminating targets deemed "uninteresting" by the devil. However, this transformation takes a toll, blurring the lines between his two identities. The more he embraces the darkness, the colder and crueler he becomes, constantly battling the internal conflict between his desire for vengeance and the lingering humanity within him.

Despite the darkness he carries, Masatora finds solace in the unexpected friendship with his classmate Amane Suzukawa. Her kindness and genuineness offer a flicker of hope, reminding him of the world he's trying to protect.

Masatora's journey is one of constant struggle, torn between the love for his sister and the destructive path he walks. He embodies the complexity of human nature, where even in the darkest depths, a flicker of light can spark the fight for redemption.
