A student of the Gorin's newly-established university branch, Nagare coaches the Gorin college swim team. He is usually quiet and hides his feelings, but his personality changes completely when he is in the water. He is a childhood friend of Shoma, and sets out to find him after he disappears from the school. He joins Natsu and Roberto to investigate the new school attacks after Shoma separates from the group.

At first glance, Nagare looks like an appropriate addition to the Gorin high school sports team, but he's actually one of the most bizarre characters of the entire Rival Schools series... simply because he uses "swimming techniques" to fight. ^o^ (Like that makes any sense.) But who cares, because It's damn near impossible not to laugh at some of his moves. Nagare is definitely another one of those "WTF-type" Capcom characters (love them or hate them), but he is pretty good comic relief.

Visually, his design is artistically interesting too. Capcom made me notice that nearly all male swimmers have long faces and slender bodies. It's pretty awesome that Edayan (main artist of the Rival Schools series) captured that in Nagare. Also, shoutouts to Michael Phelps and his 23 Olympic gold medals. ;)
