At Go warehouse, he tried to calm Go who was furious by the sudden popularity of Playmaker. Go claimed that he was the king of Link VRAINS, his manager told him that he knew how he worked to rule Link VRAINS. He advised Go to check out Speed Duels but they were interrupted by the arrival of mysterious man. The man introduced himself as the security manager of SOL Technologies "Akira Zaizen". Go's manager attempted to introduce him but Akira already knew him. When Akira noticed that Onizuka lived a warehouse, Go's manager said that Onizuka wasn't a Duelist who was after money. Akira wished that Go defeated Playmaker and retrieved an AI Program that he had. He offered him a D-Board for Speed Duels and explained Playmaker's AI program was originally created by Sol Technologies, but due to certain events it fell into Playmaker's hands. Even they didn't know Playmaker's identity, Akira added that his AI program would determine the future of Link VRAINS and it fell into Hanoi's hand, Link VRAINS would be destroyed. Akira wished that Go protected Link VRAIN and if he succeeded, Sol Technologies would become his main sponsor. Go's manager thought it wasn't a bad deal, but Go refused to obey orders and asked Akira to leave. Akira understood and said that he would come back later, he noticed a homemade championship belt and affirmed that many people wanted Go to be the king of Duelists. Before leaving, Akira told Go that if he changed his mind, he could contact him anytime. Go's manager noticed that this security manager acted like he knew everything and tried to threaten them.
As Go and Playmaker Duel, his manager visits the orphanage, intending to watch the reactions of the children there. He then showed that he didn't mind the children's change of heart as they are honest in supporting the coolest hero. He then agreed with the owner that Go would regain his popularity among the children if he wins. When Go lost half his LP and at the owner's concern, he then told the owner that Go's fine and pretending to be in a disadvantage to exaggerate his opponent's strength is his style. When Go Link Summoned "Gouki The Great Ogre", he answered the owner's question that Go's style entertains his viewers as well as his opponents and believes that Go is in the lead.
