Takeshita has spiky blond hair and appears to be of average build. He sports some stubble and a faint mustache.
Takeshita's hero costume includes two half-bamboo stalks over his ears, brown fingerless gloves, and two bamboo stalks crossed over his back. His green jacket has a cuff of fur and shoulder pads. He appears to be wearing a black top of some sort underneath his jacket.
Takeshita seems to be friendly, as seen when he greeted civilians politely.
Not much about Takeshita is known, except that he was the classmate of Danjuro Tobita. He did well in his class and was accepted into an agency. Not too long after, he became an independent Pro Hero and seemed to be well known.
He met a 22-year-old Danjuro and the latter told him they went to school together and were in the same class, but Takeshita did not recognize him. This event left Danjuro traumatized as he believed himself too insignificant to be remembered and set him on the path of becoming a villain.
In the present times, Takeshita joins multiple Heroes across Japan to assist in taking down the newly created Paranormal Liberation Front, currently under the command of the dreaded Tomura Shigaraki. Takeshita is assigned to the Hospital Raid Team with Endeavor as its commander. Takeshita helps evacuate civilians in Jaku General Hospital along with his other comrades participating there too.
- Takeshita's name contains the kanji for "bamboo" (竹 take?), possibly referring to his Quirk.
- Takeshita's English voice actor, Matt Shipman, also voices Mr. Brave, Inasa Yoarashi, and Sen Kaibara.
