Takuto Ando is the main character for the Chouseishin series Chousei Kantai Sazer-X.


Takuto Ando is a 18 year old hotblooded and reckless Earthling who dreams to be a F1 racer and to be acknowledged by his grandfather Soujiro Ando. He often "plunges blindly" into things, but he is very fond of his grandfather who told him that when he would be 18, space pirates would attack the Earth. Soujiro gave him the Strage device, a device that allows him to transform (equip) as Lio-Sazer. 

He is portrayed by Ryosuke Takahashi.




With the Strage Device, Takuto calls the "Knuckle Cross" which allows him to equip into Lio-Sazer, whose element is fire. He also has the Lio-Breaker, a thick, powerful sword that can be split in two and also powered up with cosmo capsules.

His personal capsule is "Lio-I" which, equipped in the sword, can perform his hissatsu Finisher attack "Lio Fire", which is a massive, explosive ball of fire in the shape of a Lion.
