Takuya Kanbara is the main protagonist in Digimon Frontier. He holds the spirits of the legendary warrior of fire, Agunimon.
He is the leader of the DigiDestined, children who were choosen to receive the ability to transform into Digimon and save the Digital World. He is similar to Tai Kamiya.

Takuya is a young boy with lightly tanned skin, brown hair and eyes. He wears a yellow T-shirt with a black "D"-like symbol in chest, under a red jacket with a pocket on each side of chest, a dark brown bermuda, light brown gloves, white socks, orange and red sneakers with white soles, and a light brown cap over which he puts his goggles.
Takuya begins the series as a typical "goggle boy"—energetic and athletic, but tending to act without thinking and very stubborn. He has a strong sense of justice, and tries to use his power to do what he believes is right. His hot-headed personality often leads to him arguing with Koji Minamoto, another of Digimon Frontier's main characters, however they learn to respect each other toward the middle of the series, after their first encounter with Duskmon, and become good friends and partners in battle. He acts like an older brother to Tommy Himi, who reminds him of his real brother Shinya.
On the afternoon of Shinya's birthday, Takuya receives an SMS message from a mysterious person. The message instructs him to go to a subway station, where a Trailmon takes him and four other human children to the Digital World.
