Sakata (坂田) is a second-year student at Kaname's high school. He is one of the students who hangs out in the chemistry prep room. He doesn't believe that Takasato is a bad guy. The opposite really. He comes to look up to Takasato as a sort of vengeful god, telling his classmates who were injured to repent. Gotanda remarks that Sakata seems to be starting a new religion of "Takasatoism."
