Itsuki "Ikki" Minami is the main protagonist of the manga and anime Air Gear. while she explained how they only have that "brother/sister" relationship, but He and Ringo begin flying across the paper planes, and Ikki questions sora if he . Simple questions are not discussions and thus do not need the [DISC] tag. .. They weren't really in a relationship, Simca was more like a captive/prisoner on the warship. Wow it's really been a long time since I've read Air Gear the last time and it . So, in the last manga chapter Ikki x Ringo was a thing.
He then wakes up to see an A-T duffel bag sitting on his bed. Wondering if the events in his "dream" actually transpired or not, Ikki calls out to Ringo and Mikan only to find no one's there except him and that it's almost noon. Racing to school, Ikki finds a dead crow in his locker and that his desk has been vandilized with deragotory messages relating to his beatdown yesterday. Demanding answers, Ikki storms campus and eventually bumps into his friends Kazu and Onigiri who are being forced to sell Skull Sader stickers against thier will.
The latter spots Ikki's duffel bag and the two berate him for having A-T's in his possession while also informing Ikki that the Skull Saders are targeting all members of the ESG. Kazu then chunks the duffel bag out the window and accidently sets Ikki off.
After giving a throughout beating to his now former friends, Ikki then walks away stating that he didn't really need those A-T's.
Meanwhile the Skull Saders are harassing some girls when Ringo casually strolls by and slaps a Sleeping Forest sticker over the Skull Saders one and states that they'll meet thier end in the forest.
Ikki returns home to find that the house is still empty. While in the middle of a rage induced fit over whats happened, he finds a note written to him by the Noyamano sisters that was included with the A-T duffel bag. Heading out to find it, Ikki is having no luck when Kazu and Onigiri show up with said duffel bag.
After apologizing and giving Ikki encouraging words, he heads out to try on his A-T's. Not having any prior experience with A-T's, Ikki fumbles around a bit before finding himself "flying" over the town. Having his confidence fully return to him, Ikki is now eager for a rematch against the Skull Saders. That evening, Ringo and Mikan assualt the Skull Saders base of operations while Ikki whos still getting the hang of A-T's falls directly on top of Magaki.
After words are exchanged, Ikki is challenged to his first A-T match. The goal is simple. Collect both the skull Saders emblem and Sleeping Forests emblem which are waiting at the top of a wall. Magaki thinks hes got this in the bag since Ikki can't ride on walls yet. However, at the start of the race, Ikki takes off one of his A-T's and sends it flying skyward at Makagi which causes him to fall off the wall it also knocks the emblems off the wall to boot Ikki then uses a unique A-T attack he calls "Wheel Spin Drop" on the Skull Saders leader and wins his debut A-T match.
Kazu and Onigiri later head to the Skull Saders headquarters only to find countless unconcious bodies laying all over the place. Ikki then wakes up the next morning gleeful over his victory. However, Mikan warns hims not to reveal the existence of SF to his peers and Ringo chimes in as well. Kazu and Onigiri state that thier friend won because he had Air Trecks this time around.
Subcumbing to peer pressure, Ikki tries to jump over a desk in order to prove that he really did take down the Skull Saders all by himself, but fails miserably. Trying to write his mistake off as having an off day, Ikki's classmates diss on him. Wallowing over his failure to impress his peers, a bird aggressively pecks Ikki on the head causing him to yell at the bird until he sees a nest full of babies about to fall out of his tree.
While arguing over whether or not Ikki actually had anything to do with the defeat of the Skull Saders, Kazu and Onigiri witness Ikki pull a wall jump in order to save a bird nest.
Having thier faith restored, they gladly welcome back the "babyface" of the eastside gunz. Later, Ringo is training Ikki with the basics of A-T's while the latter is making perverted comments. The former threatens to leave if Ikki doesn't take the lessons seriously. After Ikki accidentally pulls Ringos skirt down while attempting "the walk", the duo return home and Ikki is subjected to Ume mocking him over his lack of skill in AT's.
Mikan then announces that its steak night. After everyone's had thier fill, the girls head out for some night time riding. Unbeknownst to them, Ikki's secretly following them trying to figure out what kind of people the sisters really are. Due to riding on a bike, Ikki quickly loses them and while searching for the sisters, he comes across the Grand Slum.
An A-T store dealing in rare parts. Ikki asks for directions and the fat female owner summons a quirky old man to accompany him. The old coot rambles on about wings and mocks Ikki. Next thing Ikki knows, hes given a pair of wheels with the words "Welcome To Nightmare" scribbled on them. Ikki then returns home and boldly declares he'll soon catch up with the old man. Girl Trouble While snooping around in Mikans room, Ikki's gets caught by said person and is viciously attacked.
Afterwards, Mikan tells him that he should have told her sooner that he needed spare parts to fix his Air Trecks which broke down.
She then takes Ikki on a "treasure hunt" at a local sports store that sell A-T parts. While at the store, Mikan explains to Ikki the importance of customizing his own A-T's however he sees fit so that they become his own personal pair.
While checking out the many parts available for sale, Ikki finally meets the pink haired girl hes been admiring everyday in person. The gorgeous girl introduces herself as Simca and the two have a brief conversation. Once Ikki returns home, he spends the rest of the day trying out the many different screws he ended up buying at the store. While hes doing this, Ikki gets to thinking about the girl at the sports store and how she seemingly knows him from somewhere. Putting two and two together, Ikki realizes that "Tsubame" and the sales hottie are the same person, Ikki heads out telling the Noyamano sisters hes gonna go practice when in reality hes heading out to the place where he watches Simca everyday.
Taking action, Ikki follows close behind and takes down the mysterious attackers. The two gang members then leave the area. Just as Simca gives Ikki a kiss on the cheek as thanks for helping her, Mikan shows up to give Ikki a screw that fell out of his A-T's.
Apparently recognizing Simca from somewhere, Mikan mentally states her dislike of the pink haired skater. After that day, Ikki develops a crush on Simca and takes to staring at her as much as possible. He even checks to make sure no more Stormriders pursue her.
Mikan then has a conversation with Ringo about Simca and how shes nothing but trouble for Ikki. After they are done talking, the former notices a blood moon; a sign of battle. Elsewhere, Inuyama, leader of the Rez Boa Dogs is having a meeting with his teammates over thier negligence to follow orders regarding Simca.
They then head out to hunt down her latest boy toy. Speaking of which, Ikki is waiting for Simca when she pops up behind him and offers him a drink.
She then salutes him for watching over her every single day. Ikki apoligizes for stalking her, but Simca takes no offense and offers Ikki a reward as part of her gratitude. Thinking its a kiss, Ikki closes his eyes and puckers his lips. Much to his surprise, Ikki is given not a kiss, but instead a Rez Boa Dogs emblem. Just then, Inuyama attacks him with his signature "dokon" attack.
The leader of the Rez Boa Dogs demand that Ikki gives them back whats rightfully thiers while Simca takes flight and leaves the area, but not before promising Ikki some serious gratitude should he manage to keep up with the emblem between now and when the two next meet. Afterwards, Ikki hops on his bike and entices the Rez Boa Dogs to chase after him. While this is occuring, Ringo and Mikan are out looking for Ikki when Simca happens to pass by them. The sisters warn her to leave Ikki alone and Ringo even slaps Simca to help the warning sink in.
Eventually, the Rez Boa Dogs catch up with Ikki and begin to jump him when Ringo suddenly appears to save his hide. Angry that she got involved in, Ikki chews Inuyama out for attacking Ringo. The RBD's leaders mask then falls apart after being damaged earlier in the chase to reveal a comical pompodor. Ikki then takes a moment to laugh at this silly reveal before declaring a battle between him and the RBD.
Just as things are getting underway, Simca shows up to steal the RBD and SF's emblems and makes the match more entertaining by having the two combatants Ikki and Inuyama chase after her pet swallow who is now in possession of the two emblems. Ikki then takes off immedately after Simca offers a "reward" to the winner of the match.
Having been given some solid advice from Mikan about how to best win the match, Ikki makes his way to a tunnel where there just so happens to be a moving train.
Since the swallow is passing through the same tunnel, the conditions will cause the bird to move slower than it normally would.
Inuyama having caught up to Ikki by this point starts punching Ikki with everything hes got. Luckily, Ikkis tougher than he appears having been the guinea pig for all of Mikan and Rika's new wrestling moves back in the day and easily brushes aside Inuyamas punchs. Ringo, Mikan, and Simca are watching the fight unfold and are engaged in banter as it progresses. Focusing everything hes got on the swallow, Ikki jumps on a power line to tremendously boost his speed and as a result sees the "Wing Road" for the first time.
The increase in speed also allows him to snag both of the emblems from the swallow. Unforetuanately, the speed increase is temporary and Ikki's put in harms way as he beings to fall right in front of the train. Foretuanately, Inuyama saves the crow's life and gets them both to safety. He then tells Simca she picked a good man and compliments Ikki on a job well done. The RBD then disband since thats on par for course for any stormrider team that loses a battle.
Ikki then tries to give Inuyama the emblem he won back and is told no many times even though the former feels that he had a cheap win. Simca then takes the RBD emblem and runs off with it, butnot before she praises Ikki and states that she has high hopes for him. The RBD then give chase to the gorgeous stormrider once more.
Mikan and Ringo's opinion of her changes for the better and just as the sisters and Ikki are about to leave, Simca comes back saying that she forgot to reward Ikki for winning the match. The Night Kings After the events of that night, Ikki is seen scrounging around the house for money to fix his now broken A-T's. He does everything under the sun to obtain money ranging from selling his wrestling books to stealing money from Ume's piggy bank. After his almost impossible victories against many superior classed opponents, many see Ikki as the tentative successor to the title of Sky King.
So strong is her belief in his destiny that she places all of Genesis under his command. However, this also puts him in direct conflict with Sleeping Forest which is led by his childhood friend, Ringo. Ikki chanellges Yoshitsune skill in the Devil's 33 Ikki was hospitalized for some time supposedly due to an injury received during the Devil's 33 challenge against Yoshitsunebut in reality Ikki's leg had already been healed and it was just a ploy so that he could be protected and trained within the safety of the hospital.
But because of the multiple attempts at the Devils 33 he now holds the record after he flew During his stay at the hospital he spent most of his time training with Sora.
His training mostly consisted of perverted games such as counting panties while running on his hands. As silly as they seemed they were actually to help Ikki's body become more suitable for the Wind Regalia, Bagram.
Sora even taught Ikki how to project the wind and how to control it as a potent weapon. The results of training were shown when Ikki fought Ringo.
When Ikki fought her with the new Bagram cores, his power was boosted so high he actually broke the cores Which later turned out to be incorrect prototypes, made by Hako and switched out with Kururu's prototype.
After the battle with Ringo which is considered a drawIkki and Agito leave the Noyamano house, and find themselves invited to stay inside the Tool Toul To headquarters where they meet Rune, 2nd in Command of Tool Toul To. During their stay there, Hako, who had stolen Kururu's Bagram prototype, visits Ikki and offers to be his tuner. Shortly after she is rejected, Rune takes back the True Bagram cores, which Hako stole and replaced with her own version.
As soon as he takes it, he has his hand cut off by a stranger, who breaks through the fortified glass of the headquarters window. The stranger easily handles Rune and Agito, before running off with both the wind regalia core a Ikki using the 2nd forme, wings extended nd Hako. After this, Ine and Rune reveal that Trophaeum Tower is actually inside the Tool Toul To base, and they take an elevator inside the Tower, despite hesitation on Agito's part.
The Trophaeum Tower is actually not a tower at all, but a large geothermal mine shaft with the "top" of the tower actually being the bottom of the shaft. The entrance is hidden by the large clock tower that Tool Toul To uses as their base. Once inside Ikki is set up against the Sleeping Forest team, being revealed to be all Gravity Children denoted by the cross-shaped marks on their pupils.
Ikki learns the reason behind Sleeping Forest's control of the AT world is that they feel the regalia are too destructive to be let loose on the world.

Meanwhile, Nike who had stolen the rebuilt cores, del Ikki and Agito in the Trophaeum Tower ivers them to Sora who installs them on his newly acquired bionetic legs. Sora's power and control with the cores is enough to allow him to destroy a helicopter.
Sano and Spitfire attempt to stop the two twins until Sora teams up with Nike. The two then promptly kill Sano and Spitfire, igniting a betrayal that would shake the AT world.
The news of Sora's betrayal hits Ikki hard and he decides to quit AT. Kururu Sumeragi tries to comfort him but even she can't mend his shredded heart. Feeling as if he'll never "fly" again Ikki accidentally rode a bike off the road while racing with Kururu only to be saved by Kazu who had been training with Spitfire's regalia since Sora's betrayal. He saves Ikki and reveals that Spitfire had left a message to everyone before he died. Ikki hurt by Sora's betrayal During the video, Spitfire calls Ikki out, asking him if his wings are broken, and then explains to him the way that Genesis had been running up until the Behemoth match.
Spitfire explains that over time, Simca, and himself became disillusioned by Sora's "dream" and forgot why they had even started riding. When Ikki rode Agito's fang to jump start the Wing Road, he was able to bring back the feeling that had been missing.
It was then that Spitfire began going behind the Sora Brother's backs when it came to matters concerning his involvement with Genesis. In response, Ikki asks everyone he's faced over the start of his A-T career, minus the Skull Saders, who were all in attendance, to give him a wake up call. Spitfire's message concludes by asking Ikki if his wings are truly broken.
Ikki fearing that she was taken by Sora went berserk and destroyed the car in which Kururu was, when he was about to punch the driver Kururu stops Ikki and tells him that that man is her father. After apologizing for destroying the car Ikki and friends find that Kururu's father is the leader of White Wolf Clan and that the team was created in order to save a company from bankruptcy. Kururu then meets the old man, which states 'What Kogarasumaru needs is a meaningful defeat, thus making Kururu help her father's team, White Wolf Clanto make Kogarasumaru not overconfident.
Kogarasumaru battled against White Wolf Clan. They changed their strategy from trying to score points to trying to inflict as much damage as possible to the White Wolf Clan, which was all a hoax by Kogarasumaru. Although her support is mostly in the way of advice, she occasionally lends her direct efforts under the guise of "Croissant Mask", though her need for an alter-ego is not immediately clear. Through Kogarasumaru's battles, it is eventually revealed that Ringo is actually the Thorn Queenlegitimate successor and leader of Sleeping Forest, and therefore a powerful Storm Rider involved with some of the greatest mysteries of the A-T world.
Her position puts her at odds with Ikki when Genesisa rival team led by migratory bird Simca and determined to overthrow Sleeping Forest, subordinates itself under Kogarasumaru's leadership. However, Ringo continues to support Ikki. When Tridentsone of Genesis' sub-teams, challenges Ikki with the Devil's 33 jump, Ringo places herself at the goal point in lieu of thirty-three actual people lying side-by-side. During this trial, it is revealed that as children, her wish to see their parents encourages Ikki to climb Tokyo Tower, where he is introduced to the sky.
It is from that point Ringo draws her belief in Ikki's ability to truly fly and is inspired to find a way to fly along with him. Ultimately, Ringo's position in Sleeping Forest can no longer be ignored. As the time draws closer to the opening of Tropaion TowerSleeping Forest begins targeting all major teams and riders capable of challenging them.
Among the victims is Simca, who is attacked and temporarily crippled under Ringo's orders. When Ikki discovers Ringo's role in incapacitating Simca, he considers her a traitor and runs from her. To this end, she is willing to bar his way to Kingship, going so far as to brutally attack him.
Her superior experience overwhelms Ikki during the earlier stages of the battle, but Kururu Sumeragi saves him with a mid-air installation of counterfeit Bagram prototype cores. Even using faulty Regalia, Ikki is able to match Ringo's strength. The climax of the battle occurs when Ikki uses the Wind Regalia's Infinity Atmospherethreatening to kill Ringo with debris driven by high-speed winds. Although she considers letting herself be killed to stop the never-ending battles, Ringo ultimately uses her Infinity Atmosphere to shred apart Ikki's, preventing him from becoming overtaken by the Regalia's deadly power.
The battle eventually ends when an exhausted Ringo collapses a few feet from the finish line. Ikki, finally understanding her feelings, decides to make the match a draw by carrying Ringo to the finish line. Afterwards, Ikki leaves the Noyamano residence and Ringo kisses him goodbye though she slaps him right afterward. Kilik reveals to Ikki the history of the Tropaion Tower and its connection to the Gravity Childrenof whom Ringo and sisters Ume and Mikan is part of a later generation.
Ringo, Ume, and Mikan were, as children, given to Rika, who shortly afterward takes in Ikki. Kilik also reveals why Ringo is considered leader of Sleeping Forest.
The final battle of the Gram Scale Tournament takes place in a descending shaft inside the Tropaion Tower, thereby becoming an enormously pressurized environment. This pressure overwhelms most people, but Ringo's specific capabilities as Thorn Queen makes such an environment her ideal battleground. Kilik's intent in bringing Ikki inside the Tropaion Tower is to test his worthiness of attaining the Sky Regalia.
However, Takeuchi Sora then reveals himself as the real leader of Genesis, having just stolen the Wind Regalia. This betrayal emotionally traumatizes Ikki, who had come to see Sora as an older brother figure. Ringo is helpless to comfort Ikki and afterward her primary duties to Sleeping Forest prevent her from helping Ikki outright any longer. Even so, she continues to support Kogarasumaru indirectly. Ringo also uses her "Croissant Mask" guise to offer Kogarasumaru an alternative method for entering the Grand Scale tournament when they are disqualified.
Before she leaves for that battle, Ringo in the guise of Croissant Mask tells Ikki she loves him and tells Kururu to take her place as Kogarasumaru's number-one supporter. Before the battle between Sleeping Forest and Genesis even begins, Sora reveals that he has taken Rika hostage to draw Sleeping Forest outside of the Tower, where they would have an advantage. Although Ringo is distressed for her sister, she is determined to stay in the Tower, even preventing Mikan from leaving.
At the point where the two sisters are about to fight, Ikki calls in, having been told by Aeon Clock the situation. He makes a deal with Kilik: Just after Kogarasumaru defeats Sleipnire and is on their way to save Rika, Canon attacks Ringo in the Tower under the pretense of bringing her the new design of her Regalia. He drives her out of the Tower, then reveals that his actions were commanded by Kilik, who encourages Ringo to do what she truly wants to do.
President-elect Omahato ask for Ringo's help in their next plan: Ringo decides to follow them and en route she encounters and defeats Caesar, who is sent to prevent them. Ikki and Ringo Kiss In Chapterafter the battle of Kogarasumaru and GenesisRingo was chosen by Ikki to be his tuner since Kururu made herself the power source to control the sinking of the aircraft carrier they're in.
In Chaptershe accepted the offer and finally confesses her love for Ikki. When the tuning process is about to begin. She and ikki think about everything that has happened up until this point and kiss. In Chaptershe and Ikki were seen with a new pair of A-T's seemingly Ikki was not the only one with an enhanced A-T after the tuning process at the aircraft.
She later gets hit by Sora's powerful attack to protect Ikki and almost freezes from the cold atmosphere if not for Ikki saving her. She later bandages her left eye and seems to be in pain, but endures it and continues with Ikki.
When Ikki and Ringo split up and Ikki stays back to keep Sora and Rika at bay, Ringo continues downward to win the race while commenting how her body feels torn from her injuries and the Sonia Road, feeling like she's poisoned on the inside, but still continues. When Sora blocks her way, she heads outside and continues down despite protests from others stating that if she continues this way in her condition, she'll die and her body will be torn apart.
Ringo activates her regalia and thinks to herself that under any circumstances Ikki can do anything that she and everyone else cannot do. So she must try her best.

While Simca states Ikki's willpower has gone to Ringo, Ringo performs a trick that creates a spiral of fire. She states that she can now fight like Ikki and says that everyone is watching.
So he shouldn't have to reduce his strength in order to save her and everyone else. And wonders if they should start. Indicating that she and Ikki are not using their full strength and that the real battle has just begun.
Three months after the battle with Sora and Rika. Ringo forms a band with Emily and co. Unlike the usual Ringo, her hair seems spiky and more serious in tone. Ultimately, Crazy Apple is more focused on beating up her opponents showing that in this mode, she will never hold back attacking a target. It was originally designed by Ringo as one of her alter egos.
Her reasons were to protect her status as queen of "new" Sleeping Forest and to quietly be with Ikki. Over time, she has used the disguise to give advice and information to Ikki and others.
At one point, she portrayed herself as "Croissant Mask" as an attempt to steal necessary items to create the original Storm Regalia. Ringo's main outfit was a swimsuit, hat, cape, wig and big glasses. During the series of event, she has been forced to wear other outfits due to the outfit being stolen or destroyed. Ringo used Croissant Mask to tell Ikki that she loved him and then passed the torch as the number one supporter to Kururu out of fear of the upcoming battle with Genesis.
Her road focuses on agility and is considered the road with the highest maneuverability, a result from bubbles of nitrogen formed in her joints by pressure caused by hyperventilation.
With Sonia Road, the center of movement is changed from the knees to the hips, which greatly increases flexibility and nimbleness. This aspect limits the Sonia Road to women, as only their hips are capable of enduring the Road's demands. Ringo herself states that her tricks are not as powerful as the Fangs of the Bloody Roadnor does she have enduring stamina.
Fast, relentless attacks are thus key to her victories.

The Sonia Road is considered the opposite of the Bloody Road; instead of tearing the opponent's body, Sonia Road tears the user's body, sacrificing it so that the Rider can attain higher flexibility. With her new pair of A-T's at chaptershe and Ikki can jump from flying papers to another while jumping out from their plane and even dodging the "Joseph", a defense mechanism of the Tropaion Tower.
