Development throughout the story [edit | edit source]
(starting with the first appearance in the New World)
Momotaro first appeared in Chapter 6 of the series, Early Spring Chapter, "Hana" greeting the food retrieval team at their return from Insects Island. In the beginning, he didn't play a big role except for explaining to Hana that the island's vegetation resembled the Carboniferous Era.
When Yanagi died and the group travelled to the mainland of Kanto finally settling down in a camp, Momotaro remained there with the rest of his team until that place got destroyed by a landslide and the child was separated from the others.
He was eventually picked up and treated by Ayu. The beautiful woman gained Momotaro's trust but the child later on realized that she only took him in as a guinea pig for her medicines. Ango tortured Momotaro as well, making him climb a large rock wall and using the boy as bait to lure out predators. Momotaro was very glad being rescued by Hana whom he loved and admired.
But due to the attack of the White Piranha Bats, his friends decided to live with Team Summer A for the time being. Momotaro wasn't exactly happy but he accepted the necessity of that and kept as close to Hana, Aramaki and Haru as possible.
When Hana went missing (and was supposed to be dead), the child was devastated and tried to get emotional support by Haru. The young musician then decided to stay with Momotaro and Koruri to protect all of them in stead of Hana and Aramaki who went off on a voyage together with Ayu.
Due to a bushfire, Momotaro was eventually forced to leave the Summer A base together with the other members of their community, once again travelling towards an uncertain future.
