Various Storylines (2013–present) Edit
On the April 12, 2013 episode of ACW, Takashi Komuro, along with his Highschool of the Dead faction, made his debut in a Ten-person Mixed Tag Team Match against The Hardcore Foundation, who they lost do due to the interference from Alpha & Omega (Carter Young and Stan Terra). Komuro would then be featured in Ten-man Tag Team Match with Eddy, Rogen Townsend, and The Second City Saints (Phil Hardy and Colt Anderson) against Alpha & Omega and The Wolves (Hannibal Ambrose, Erik Rollins and Damian Reigns) at Southern Hell, where they won via submission after a simultaneous Crossface / "Colt Lock" combination by Komuro and Anderson respectively to Terra while Eddy and Hardy had Young in a Money Lock / Cattle Mutilation combination.
On the May 10, 2013 episode of ACW, Komuro and his tag team partner, Kohta Hirano, were scheduled in a match against The Gods of Darkness (Yami Bakura and Marik Ishtar) to determine the number one contenders for the ACW World Tag Team Championships. Prior to the contest, Bakura and Ishtar attacked them from behind and after the match began, Bakura immediately made Komuro submit. At Spring Breakdown, Komuro and Hirano interfered the Ladder Match for the tag team titles by taking out Bakura through a table when he was about to take down the belts. On the May 31, 2013 edition of ACW, Jesse Alvarez, the chairman of the company, scheduled Komuro and Hirano, the Gods of Darkness and Alpha & Omega in a Triple Threat Match to determine the next challengers for the tag belts. By June 7, 2013, Alpha & Omega won and Bakura and Ishtar would take their anger out on Komuro and Hirano post-match, finishing the former off with a Con-chair-to. On the June 21, 2013 episode of ACW, Komuro and Hirano attacked the Gods of Darkness from behind as an act of "getting even", and then Alvarez announced a match between Komuro and Hirano and the Gods of Darkness in a Tornado Tag Team Elimination Tables Match at Reign in Blood. That same night, Komuro and Bakura fought in a match, which the former won. On the June 28, 2013 episode of ACW, Komuro and Hirano received a strange package containing a CD, which after they played it, featured a disturbing promo cut by the Gods of Darkness. At Reign in Blood, Komuro and Hirano fought to a loss after Komuro's corner springboard crossbody was countered into a cutter by Bakura. During the match, Hirano suffered a neck injury after G.o.D. performed Malevolent Nightmare through the table and then second degree burns after a Darkness Reigns.
On the first episode of Ignition, Komuro attacked Bakura and Ishtar, promptly beating up the latter after the former escaped. During then, he performed an Inverted Death Valley Driver to Marik into the chair, taking him out as an act of vengeance and leaving only himself and Bakura to continue the feud. The next night, on the first episode of RAMPAGE, Komuro with Rei Miyamoto were sent a disturbing promo by Yami Bakura, who challenged Komuro into a Monster's Ball Match at Rebellion. On Ignition II, Komuro personally confronted Bakura and accepted the challenge, proceeding to attack him until security broke up the fight. On the July 20, 2013, episode of RAMPAGE, Komuro attacked Bakura while the referee was knocked out, making him suffer a loss to Duke Devlin. On the go-home show of Ignition, Komuro and Bakura cut promos at each other for their upcoming Monster's Ball Match. At Rebellion, Komuro fought Bakura in what was a violently brutal contest to a victory after Komuro landed a dangerous Diving Headbutt straight into the chest of his opponent.
On August 2, 2013, Komuro was drafted to Ignition with Hirano as the 11th overall pick in the inaugural ACW Brand Extension. He and Hirano are announced to take part in the ACW World Tag Team Championship #1 Contender's Tournament to decide new challengers for current tag titleholders, Alpha & Omega.
NXT: Animated Edit
Around early to mid 2013, Komuro and Hirano signed with WWE, both reporting down to their developmental territory, NXT: Animated. He and Hirano made their NXT debut in a match against NXT Tag Team Champions Mordecai and Rigby of The Regular Team to an upset victory after interference by Finn and Jake.
WCW: Showdown Edit
Komuro and Hirano were announced to become part of the main roster as they graduated to WCW: Showdown.
Anime Wrestling Federation Edit
In the time before the Outbreak, Takashi is laid-back and his casual nature can also make him hesitant, evidenced by the fact that he did not act on his feelings for Rei until it was too late. Takashi becomes more serious after the Outbreak and begins to exhibit qualities of a leader. His resolve to protect Rei and everyone else earns him respect despite his own feelings of inadequacy. He is usually kind to the other members of his group, and he does not hesitate to save people who are in serious trouble, such as Alice Maresato when she is attacked by "Them". During the initial Outbreak, Takashi fights strictly for survival, but, as time passes, he begins to show a willingness to fight for himself and the group rather than just for the need to survive.
Personal Life Edit
Komuro attended Fujimi Academy until The Outbreak in the series occurred. Takashi has been friends with Saya since they were in kindergarten and best friends with Rei from the time they were both small children. Throughout the upsurge, he grew close with his fellow survivors, especially Saeko Busujima, who he grew intimate feelings for. He considers Cole MacGrath his closest friend since debuting in the Multiverse as both have had similar relationship problems with their own close companions.
Komuro is currently in a relationship with Rei Miyamoto.
