Nakimoto Rizou (亡本裏蔵 Nakimoto Rizō?) is a character introduced in Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator. A man with an appetite for fine dining, he is a member of the Academy City's Board of Directors making him one of the most powerful men in the city.


He is a man that is probably middle-aged, with his age showing on his face as wrinkles and line have begun forming on it. He wears his black hair in a ponytail, showing his forehead and forming a noticeable widow's peak. He also has a beard on his chin.[1]


He is a stern high-class man who uses food metaphors in his speech. He enjoys fine dining, praises those who provide him with an excellent meal. He is also rumored to partake in cannibalism.[1]

He rides a subway train that never stops in any station, showing that he is concerned for his safety and security very highly, though it is unknown who he is afraid of.[1]


Not much is known about him. He is a member of the Academy City's Board of Directors. As a member, his tasked is to manage the city's food including the farm buildings. He also finances many of the defensive forces that protect the city's infrastructure. He himself secures a high level of safety by remaining in constant motion aboard a fully-armed battle train, though it is unknown why he does so.[1]

Being the financier of the city's defensive forces probably allowed him to gain control of the rogue Anti-Skill group, DA. Reasoning that they could be useful as they are an organization with technology and difficulty, though underestimating his control over them.[1]


Toaru Kagaku no AcceleratorEdit

He first appears in his subway train eating immediately after the chaotic scene the DA did in Heaven Canceller's Hospital. He is phoned by another member of the Board of Directors complaining about the situation, to which Rizou agrees. He concludes that DA has become a liability to him and that they must be gotten rid of. He then uses the opportunity to use the Scavengers for this purpose.[1]
