However, Saitō is loyal to Kirihara and protects her from harm, even when he thinks she's frightening. It is revealed in the OVA that Saitō has feelings for Kirihara, however soon after verbalizing them his memory along with Kirihara's is erased due to a memory erasing substance accidentally released by Mao. He still works in the Department, but secretly maintains his contact with Misaki. Saitō is a 2nd stage in both judo and karate.
