Appearances[]

Personality[]

"So to protect your career, you ignored your responsibility as a teacher. Despicable..."
—Mitsuru Kirijo

Mr. Ekoda is arguably the most normal member of the faculty, not showing any eccentricities beyond an admiration for the Heian period, claiming that Japanese youth have lost a love for their homeland. He tends to have a low opinion of the students in his school, particularly compared to people of Japanese societies in the past. He's dismissive of the opinions and wants of others over his own vision, forcing the annual school field trip should be in Kyoto in spite of opposing opinion from the rest of faculty and the annoyance of some students. He also seems to care more about reputation (whether it's his own or the school's) than his students' wellbeing, because of which he would try to cover up the truth of the matter.

Isako Toriumi dislikes Ekoda. She once made a "small error" in her grade book and Ekoda got "all on her ass." Toriumi thinks Ekoda "thinks he's all that" because he teaches history. Toriumi wonders if Ekoda owns a computer and jokes that he probably uses an abacus.

Profile[]

Persona 3[]

Mr. Ekoda is the classic literature teacher at Gekkoukan High. When SEES is investigating the disappearance of Fuuka Yamagishi, it's eventually revealed that Mr. Ekoda, her homeroom teacher, had a hand in covering up Fuuka's absences. In order to protect his career, since as their teacher his students' behavior is mostly his responsibility, he claimed Fuuka's absences were due to illness, even after she went missing, and would later try to keep related witness Natsuki Moriyama quiet. Mitsuru is outraged, and it is implied he was punished. If asked in the dorm on 6/13, Mitsuru tells the protagonist that he is better off not knowing exactly how he was punished. Word would come out to the school about it anyway, with some students gossiping that it might've been over "sexual harassment."

Persona 3 Portable[]

Mr. Ekoda plays a role in Saori Hasegawa's Social Link: due to her getting tricked by other students into giving them material for a fake article, accusing her of indecency under a fake name, Mr. Ekoda suspends Hasegawa, only concerned for the fact said article has tarnished the reputation of the school.

Later, when Hasegawa stands up for herself with the female protagonist's help, by defending herself on the PA, bringing the attention of Ekoda, as well as Toriumi and Ounishi, who stuck up for Hasegawa.

Etymology[]

  • The surname Ekoda means "bay, inlet" (江) (e), "old, antiquity, ancient time, used, secondhand" (古) (ko) and "field, rice paddy" (田) (ta/da).
