~ Hōka Inumuta to Ryūko Matoi.
Hōka Inumuta is one of the main characters in Kill la Kill. he is one of the Student Countil's Elite Four and is in charge of Honnōji Academy's information and strategy committee, aiding the student council by analyzing information via his laptop. He is also in charge of the analysis of the Goku Uniforms research in the Sewing Club.
Hōka originally appears as an antagonist in the first half of the series, but becomes a neutral character by episode 17.
He was voiced by Hiroyuki Yoshino in the Japanese version, and by Steve Staley in the English dubbed version.
Hōka has a teal-ish blue hair and green eyes, as well as a slender frame for a person his age. He wears eyeglasses with light blue lenses a collar-neck suit, which opens at the collar whenever he talks.
A hacker and genius, Inumuta cares more for his data than anything else, even willing to lose his position in the Student Council and become a no-star in order to keep the data he collected in his fight against Ryūko Matoi, and is very protective of his laptop and the data stored within. He is also extremely sarcastic, often making jabs at people simply because he can.
Powers and Abilities
Three-Star Goku Uniform:
Probe Regalia - Out of all the Three-Star uniforms, this is the most physically restrained one. With this uniform, Inumuta can analyze anything around him and prepare himself accordingly for the situation. His suit contains keyboards, which he rapidly types on, possibility processing the constant feed of data from his experience with his opponents, as the suit can also store data. Supposedly, if he manages to completely analyze his opponent, his uniform allows him to defeat them instantly, though this has only been shown against a student wearing an experimental Five-Star Goku Uniform. His suit possesses an optical camouflage ability, rendering him invisible. The suit also has a maximum processing capacity that, if surpassed, can cause it to overheat. This can be done by attacking the uniform with extremely reckless attacks, as demonstrated by Ryūko.
Optical Camouflage - Probe Regalia can generate a camouflage cloak, allowing Inumuta to become invisible for an unspecified period of time. It allows him the ability to attack his intended target with impunity, granted the camouflage is not disrupted, which can be done by dealing massive damage to the uniform.
I just didn't want to lose all the data I've gathered up to this point. I don't care at all about winning, what I want is data.

The loser is stripped of their Goku uniform, but there's no rule stating they have to be naked.
