Akira Agarkar Yamada (アキラ・アガルカール・山田 Akira Agarukāru Yamada) is one of the main characters in the anime and a class mate of Yuki, Haru, and Natsuki. He is a mysteriously cut off character who is secretly in Enoshima to spy on Haru, due to his ties with D.U.C.K.


Having being older than much of the cast, Akira beholds a much more mature, defined face, with sharpened, gray eyes. Being from India, he has tanned skin in comparison to others, and black hair that pokes out of the sides of his brown turban. Typically, he is seen wearing his black D.U.C.K. suit, however, due to the fact the anime displays several different outfits for each character, this can differ. Unlike most D.U.C.K. members, Akira does not don the required sunglasses that should par with the dress code.

Something notable about his design is how he is always carrying, if not, is always with his partner, Tapioca.


Akira appears to be mysterious and rather stoic - not much is known about him. He often spies on Yuki, Haru, and Natsuki from a safe distance and talks to his duck named Tapioca. Despite being much older than the three, he was able to enroll into their high school. He seems to be unafraid to voice his opinion; acting brief and business-like. He also appears to have a liking to the local Enoshima food. He is a bit intimidating, because of his abrupt ways, but generally seems to be a kind man at heart.  It has also been revealed that he hates jokes, especially puns.

When he comes to trust somebody, he loosens up considerably, revealing a more immature side.


Not much is revealed in the anime to who Akira was before he joined D.U.C.K.

However, there are some clues to what his past was like in official sources. In a character Q&A, it is revealed he has a "public" reason and a "real" reason to why he had joined D.U.C.K. in the first place, only revealing his "public" reason. This "public" reason is that he had joined D.U.C.K. due to his life being saved by a certain alien, and since that encounter, he had desired to return the favor. It is unknown who this "certain alien" is, or what his real reason for joining D.U.C.K. is.

It is revealed that he and Tapioca first met after D.U.C.K. had assigned them as partners. Prior to Enoshima, Akira and Tapioca were stationed in Missoula, Montana.
