Akio Asakura is the main protagonist in the Wangan Midnight series.


Akio has been racing since he was very young. The story of Wangan Midnight begins with him in his last year of high school, something that often takes a back seat to his enjoyment of racing.


In the past, Akio had driven his red Nissan Fairlady Z 300ZX until one day when he lost a race to Tatsuya Shima and discovered the Devil Z - a Nissan Fairlady Z S30Z with a haunting past

In the live action movie Akio drove his red Nissan Fairlady Z 300ZX, until he came upon the S30Z.


Akio is a gentle and humble young man, but very serious about racing. Racing is such a priority to him that he once skipped school enough to make him have to repeat a grade just to race.
