First Season[edit | edit source]
Yoshida's first appearance is with the other members of Naoto Kozuki's resistance team during the assault at Shinjuku Ghetto. He along with Kallen and the others go to Tokyo Tower in order to meet the person who would later reveal himself to them as Zero. Yoshida then watches on the television as Zero rescues Suzaku Kururugi from the Purebloods with the help of only Kallen and Oghi. He later appears when the Black Knights make their first appearance to the world after the Japanese Liberation Front Hotel Incident.
During the Assault on Tokyo Settlement, Yoshida and three other members of the Black Knights were operating a Raiko and by using it's Super Electromagnetic Shrapnel Cannon, they destroyed some Britannian forces. When Suzaku appears with his Lancelot looking for Zero, Yoshida and the others try to fire another shot. However, Suzaku cuts it in half with his Maser Vibration Sword and then proceeds to destroy the Raiko's legs of each of the units, causing it to fall and explode, killing Yoshida.
