God Eater Burst
He appears to support the Director at first, helping to locate the Singularity and agreeing with his plans. However, knowing the Director would willingly cause a Devouring Apocalypse, he sent him off on wild goosechases to stall for time while he found and hid the real Singularity.

God Eater 2
Blood Unit first meets Sakaki when they are sent to the Far East Branch as part of the Friar's research. When Nana's Power of Blood activates, Sakaki hides her away from the lured Aragami in Shio's former room. After Julius Visconti reaches a stage in his Singularity transformation, Sakaki recalls Blood from the Friar to discuss what to do next. After analyzing Yuno Ashihara's Black Plague-infected body, Sakaki reveals his theory that the Red Rain is actually a system that is searching for a new potential Singularity candidate(after Shio had left to the moon) and infected people are victims who have no compatibility to be the new Singularity and are fated to die with its presence. He also reveals that Yuno's infection had progressed to a level beyond thd one that most infected had lived before, so he theorizes that despite Julius being chosen as the new Singularity, Yuno also had the potential to become one, which explains her survival. When Julius transforms into the Person Who Opens the World, Sakaki proposes his only conclusion: to defeat this new Singularity using the united will of all the infected patients and amplify their failed Singularity powers using the Protagonist's Power of Blood and Yuno's potential Singularity power against Julius. Sakaki was communicating to Blood with operators Fran and Hibari for the operation's duration and had Yuno Ashihara be the uniter of the infected patients using her song Aria of Light along with her Singularity power to unite the infected. Sakaki remains the Far East's Director after Julius stops the Singularity's devouring and extracts the Black Plague from the infected people and continues to keep the Blood Unit at the Far East Branch after the Friar makes its departure.
