Takuma Ōtsuka (大塚拓真, Ōtsuka Takuma) is the former captain and shooting guard of Nakamiya South High.
Ōtsuka has long, dark brown hair that reaches his chin and blue eyes. He is of average height and build. He wears the Nakamiya South uniform with the number 4. After the match Seirin High vs Tōō Academy, Ōtsuka is seen spinning a Rubik's Cube on his index finger.
Ōtsuka appears very confident about beating Seirin. He has good sportsmanship as he shakes hands with his opponent, Hyūga, and congratulates him.
Ōtsuka is first seen leaving the stadium with his team-mates after watching Seirin versus Too. They were surprised and express their worries about how unprepared they are against Seirin. The captain Ōtsuka then replies that it's better as they eliminated a better team and they'll be tired for their next match. The match goes extremely well for Ōtsuka's team, who are more motivated than their opponent. In the second quarter, Ōtsuka receives the ball from Tabata and nails it, widening the gap. After a time out, Seirin's players return to the pitch with slap mark on their faces, which surprises Ōtsuka.
Seirin turns the tide and finally wins at the end at 83-77. Ōtsuka shakes hand with Hyūga, telling him that they believed they could win.
Ōtsuka is seen heading for the Winter Cup finals with his team-mates.
