Akira Hattori was created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. His creation was meant for the two protagonists to have a mentor as well as someone who could help them achieve their goal and become successful. There are some who claim that Hattori is similar to the shinigami Ryuk from Ohba and Obata's previous work Death Note since they are both mentor figures as well as several scenes suggest a correlation as well. He made his debut in Volume 2, Chapter 6 of the manga and Episode 6 of the anime. He is currently voiced by Tomoyuki Shimura for the Japanese version.
