A very popular English teacher with a 100% attendance rate!!
Is his dozing off because his live shows...?[1]

DTO is a very popular teacher in both his school and band activity. While at school, he is dedicated to teaching his students lessons, but he can be lazy as he falls asleep and reads manga a lot. Outside of school, he plays the guitar with his band at the live house. In Pop'n Music Lapistoria, DTO wields a blue jewel-shaped lapis.

Other Character Comments

Pop'n Music 16 PARTY♪:[2]
The popular English teacher's class always gets sidetracked, though it remains in his mind for some reason.
Maybe because he believes in his cute students' unlimited potential.

Pop'n Music Lapistoria:[3]
The favorite English teacher's popular secret is a hardcore class!?
...I mean lack of high spirits! Everyone~ additional tests~!!
