Budo Masuta is one of the male students that attend Akademi High School.
Budo is the president and founder of the Martial Arts Club.
Budo Masuta wears the default school uniform, unless customized by the player. He has fluffy, dark grey hair that fans around his head. This hairstyle is the same as Haruto Yuto's, but flipped horizontally and re-colored. His eyes are dark grey. He has a white headband with Japanese text on it. Since he is a club president, he wears the "Red Armband of Leadership" on his left arm. When idle, he crosses his arms.
When in the Martial Arts Club, he wears a traditional sparring outfit. If the club disbands, he will not wear the headband anymore.
Among all the personas in the game, he is Heroic. According to his profile, he is incapable of turning down a challenge, is always gung ho and enthusiastic, and can be a bit overzealous, especially about martial arts. YandereDev has revealed that he has spent all of his free time since childhood training in martial arts. Unlike everyone else, he never appears paranoid no matter how low the School Atmosphere goes, indicating that he is extremely brave, and probably confident in his abilities.
At 7:05 AM, Budo will enter the school grounds, twentieth in line on the right side, if facing the school gates. He will walk to his locker at 7:10 AM. At 7:15 AM, he will walk to the Martial Arts Club on the second floor and will watch his apprentices spar.
At 8:00 AM, Budo will walk into Classroom 3-2 and sit at his desk. He will start his morning classes at 8:30 AM, and will leave to go back to the club at 1:00 PM.
Budo will walk to class again at 1:30 PM and finishes his afternoon classes at 3:30 PM. Afterwards, he will head to the Martial Arts Club and will stay there until the end of the day. If the player joins in club activities, he will practice kicking with the other members from 5:30 PM to 6:00 PM.
If the Martial Arts Club is inactive, he will socialize with the other former members outside of the club during periods when he would normally attend the club (7:15 AM, 1:00 PM, and 3:30 PM).
