Kiyoko (# 25), Masaru (# 27), and Takashi (# 26) are three of the children who survived the tests conduted by a secret government labratory. Originally trained for their psychic potential, they grew up with Akira and realize his power. They are very caring and selfless children who are concerned about each others' and others' safety. Despite having well developed mental abilities, even together they are no match for Tetsuo or Akira.
Kiyoko is bedridden and always holds onto her doll. "Her precognition and foresight are always accurate" explains the Doctor. Masaru was affected by Polio when he was six, and is the reason he sits in a customised chair; he is the 'leader' of the three and is reasonable and caring. Takashi is small, humble and quiet but feels obliged to help Kaneda and Tetsuo when Akira's 'bubble' swallows them up.
They are the same in the manga but when the lab is decimmated by Akira's blast the medication to control their conditions was lost; so Kay and Chiyoko help get them to Miyako who can aid them.
