Taguchi is new to the city and was disappointed at being assigned to "a hick station." He likes violence, is very arrogant, and is a show-off to anyone who will pay attention to him. He mistook Seiichiro Kitano for a super-villain when he entered the police station to turn in a lost wallet. Instead, he believed Kitano was hired by criminal organizations to attack him and that the wallet contained a hidden gun. Using his reflexes, he quickly chased Kitano out of the station and fires after him, but doesn't actually hit him. He then celebrates his victory with his partner.
