When he saw Mikan being bullied on her first day, he begged them to stop, but wasn't able to convice them otherwise, due to his easy to pushover nature. linchou became Hotaru's only friend at the academy before Mikan came. linchou was one of the reasons Hotaru wanted to disobey the order to stay in the school when Z (the people who stole linchou's Alice) was at Gakuen Alice.

linchou's Alice is stolen by Yuka Azumi while returning from his trip from his home. The car he is riding in almost hits her and he leaves the car to help her, after this he wonders about who that woman reminded him of. While handing out gifts, he is ordered by Sumire to punish Koko and Kitsuneme for ruining her doll with his Illusion Alice. linchou reluctantly does this, but no power from his Alice comes out. He is immediately taken away to the hospital and isolated from his friends. Narumi, against his own will (as he was unconscious), takes Mikan and Hotaru to visit Iinchou with a glass wall between them. He tells them that he is happy to see them and that he doesn't want to leave his friends. He is able to return to class after finding out that his loss of Alice isn't contagious. To find the problem, he was hypnotized by someone with that Alice and they find the suspect to be the woman he helped before coming back to school. Mikan, Natsume, Ruka, and Tsubasa decide to get his Alice back and find a cure for Hotaru. He isn't mad when Mikan couldn't retrieve his Alice. Yuka sneaks back into the academy and gives his Alice to Narumi who returns it to him in his sleep. linchou only remembers a figure.
