Junya Akutsu (阿久津 淳也 Akutsu Jun'ya) was the second-generation leader of the Midnight Angels.
GTO: The Early Years (Shonan Junai Gumi)
Akutsu was a leader in the gang war in Shonan where he, Kunito Nakajo and Toshiki Kamishima fought over who would be the true successor to the first-generation leader and founder of the Midnight Angels, Masaki Kyosuke. Akutsu nearly burned Kamishima to death, after which he was sent to jail for a few years.
He kidnapped, raped, and abused Nagisa Nagase so much that she developed a split personality, Yasha, to protect herself. Yasha was a vicious biker and fighter, fanatically devoted to Akutsu. She seemed to disappear back into Nagisa after Akutsu was sent to jail, but resurfaced after he got out.
Akutsu re-formed the Midnight Angels and started attacking the Oni-Baku, demanding Masaki's coat. He attempted to make Yasha kill Ryuji Danma, but Nagisa overcame her from the inside, and threw herself in front of the knife when Akutsu tried to stab Ryuji himself. He then set the trailer they and Kamishima were in on fire, leaving all three of them for dead and framing Ryuji for the murder.
After seeing what Akutsu had done, Eikichi put on the legendary coat and went on the warpath, beating up every Midnight Angel member he could get his hands on. He easily beat Akutsu, and led him on a motorcycle chase at high speeds, ending up at the spot where Masaki died in an accident. He and the first generation of Midnight Angel told Akutsu the truth about how Masaki died and that he wanted the gang to end. The police arrived, and Akutsu grabbed a gun from one and pointed it at Eikichi. Kamishima, heavily bandaged but still out for revenge, had followed them and stabbed Akutsu, throwing him off a cliff into the water.
Akutsu wakes up in the hospital, where he is told that the man who saved him was wearing a coat with "Masaki Kyosuke" written on it.
