Afro Samurai: Resurrection[]

Kotaro was first seen when Afro and Ninja Ninja were walking across a bridge and a thug kidnapped Kotaro. Afro killed a thug and saved a young boy. Later Afro and Shichigoro went to drink and Kotaro sleeps inside of the shop. After witnessing the death of his father at the hands of Afro, he seeks for revenge against him. At the end of the movie, Afro hands him the Number Two headband telling the child that he can challenge Afro 'whenever he is ready' (a scene reminiscent of Justice's speech to Afro as a child.).

At the end of the manga, Kotaro eventually faces off against Afro as an adult, but is defeated by Afro through decapitation.
