Akira Otsuka has apparently decided to retire at the end of the season due to the various injuries (specifically a left knee injury) that have kept him from playing this year and will help out as an assistant coach at Ni-gun for the remainder of the season. Assuming things go well with that, he'll officially be introduced as a coach for the 2011 season.
