Akira "Ecstasy" Ouhashi, also known as Darks, is a fictional character from the anime and manga series Ghost Slide, originally created by Kaishaku. He is a 13-year old Ome Slide, but unlike his love interest and saviour Yuu Reigami he was not born in Underverse and instead came from what is believed to be our world. Darks became involved in the Millennium War against the ghosts of Sore Society after posting on /ex/, the paranormal forum of a popular imageboard system known as 4²Channel (based off of the real-life imageboard, 4chan.org
Darks is very immature for his age, often loudly proclaiming he is in love with the macabre in spite of screaming at the sight of blood and cowering in fear whenever he hears a loud noise. Darks also expresses a dislike for Green Day; a compulsive polluter traumatized by Dandy Lion cubs as an infant, Darks is very irritable when asked to recycle and is often seen trying to throw away his trash in rivers or bushes, much to Yuu’s dismay.
Combat-wise, Darks is one of the strongest Slides in Underverse history, such that even the King of Ghosts admits "if I had a body I would have shit bricks watching that kid in action". Darks is a skilled knife fighter, capable of killing ghosts in a single thrust by exploiting their "weak points", a critical vulnerability within ghosts visible only to Darks and not other denizens of Underverse. Darks also has the ability to function at full strength during even midnight, when normal Slides like Yuu or Ron Lagery lose power; this allows him to fight even the most powerful Ghosts (such as the King of Ghosts, Yamigo) without suffering penalties.
In a recent 4chan Magazine popularity poll known as SaiPOPULARITY, Darks ranked 3rd overall among all characters, beaten only by Giovanni, Mamoru Andou, and Itou Makoto.
