Arata Yakushiji (薬師寺 アラタ) is a character in the anime and manga series Battle Spirits Heroes
Arata has spiked up brown hair. He has an x-shaped scar on his forehead. He wears a white shirt, blue jeans, brown gloves and an orange jacket.
He's very passionate, and likes to inspire other card battlers. He's also a bit of a pervert, especially showing interest in Mika.
Arata is the Battle Spirits champion. He considers Antony Starck his personal rival, and is always looking to battle any strong card battlers. He plans to battle the winner of the Hero Championships, as a reward.
Prior to the championship, he battled the number two player, Antony Starck, from Europe, in a special match. Arata won, claiming it was because of his strong Battle Spirits spirit, and bond with his cards.
Despite his skill, he's never been able to defeat Mika once. He thought that If he defeated her, she would date him.
During the national tournament in Japan, a girl named Izumi Rollerthrough Junko appeared. She entered the tournament with the goal of winning, then confessing to Arata. She was his first love as a child, but with her talent of rapidly falling in love with different men, broke his heart. He was now just disturbed to see her. Fortunately for Arata, when she lost, she kept her word and decided not to confess. She ended up falling in love with Galaxy Watanabe instead.
In Italy, while flirting with random girls, Arata got a new X-rare from a vending machine, The SwordHero Sieg-Susano-Fried. He met Hajime and the others there, and allowed Kimari to battle him, where he tested the card out. Now having the power of two level four spirits, he easily defeated her.
After the Hero Championship, Arata battled the winner, Tegamaru. He was defeated, and gave us his title. He made a speech afterwards, about how Battle Spirits is supposed to be fun regardless of whether you win or not.
In the epilogue, he revealed that he and Afrone were the same to Hajime, and challenged him to a battle, acknowledging Hajime as a hero now that he defeated Tegamaru.
