Azuma (アズマ) is one of Section 9's new recruits in Ghost in the Shell 1.5: Human-Error Processor and S.A.C. 2nd GIG. Azuma was recruited as one of the field operatives in Section 9 from JGSDF Intelligence. He sat next to Saito during their card game in episode "Poker Face". He was present at the shipyard battle in which fellow rookie Yano died and was pulled out of field duty prior to the Dejima confrontation. At the end of 2nd Gig it is implied that Azuma is now a full-fledged member of Section 9.

Azuma featured prominently at the beginning of Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. Solid State Society, supporting Togusa in an incident at the airport, as well as in Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence.

His personality in the manga is less serious and far more reckless in his actions, to the point that Togusa once expressed concern for his own safety due to being partnered with Azuma.
