Kenta is a character appearing in the second series anime. He befriends Serenity Wheeler while she is in the hospital recovering from surgery, having met her when he ducked into her room while trying to avoid getting an x-ray, even though the nurse said it was painless. She covers for him, understanding his fear. He gives her the play-by-play of her brother's Duel against Weevil Underwood as thanks, though several times throughout the Duel he expressed doubt and lack of confidence in Joey due to Weevil's tactics. Due to Serenity's unshakable confidence in Joey during his Duel, as well as promising to be friends, Kenta learned how to overcome his fears, even asking if Serenity could get him Joey's autograph.
