Long ago, Onari was a monk trained under the Daitenku Temple owner Ryu Tenkuji. He sees Ryu as an idol and always trains hard to become a ghost hunter. After Ryu's death, Onari took care of Takeru and became the acting head priest of the Daitenku Temple.
Witnessing Takeru's Death
Onari is seen mediating with with Shibuya and Narita, hearing Akari shouting for Takeru felt that it’s unacceptable as Takeru is still training, shouldn't be partying around but before he can finish his sentence, Akari left already and went after her. He lamented that Akari is obstinate and never listens then get distracted by the news on the television reporting on several unexplained phenomenon happening at the moment. Onari arrives at Takeru’s father research lab to call for him to take a look at the news. He concluded that those several unexplained phenomenon happening at the moment is the work of a ghost. Onari rebut Akari’s explanation that it’s just her inflexible line of thoughts when the latter refuse to believe the presence of ghost. Onari shares the history of Takeru’s father being the former head priest of Daitenku Temple who is a brilliant ghost hunter but lost his life at the hands of a ghost to back up his claims on ghost presence and assures Akari that Takeru believe what he mentioned.
Onari guessed the attack directed at Takeru to be a sickle weasel spirit but Akari reject that claim. Onari asked Takeru if he is seeing a ghost right now but get depressed that only Takeru can see ghost despite he have been more diligent in his trainings than Takeru and tries to attack the ghosts(Yari Gamma and Katana Gamma) blindly but only to receive a kick from them. Onari and Akari went after Takeru after he lured the ghosts away only to see Takeru attacking the air since they can’t see ghosts and shouted to Takeru asking him to flee as he is lacking of combat training. Onari and Akari immediately run towards Takeru after seeing him fell to the ground, and tries to wake him up thinking he fainted. Onari and Akari companied Takeru till night time only to find his body vanished suddenly. He started to find for him but it seem futile. Onari returned back to Daitenku Temple with Akari the next day, surprised to see Takeru appeared before them and disappears again. Onari remarked that this prove the existence of ghosts and keep arguing with Akari when she refuse to believe Takeru died.
Starting Mysterious Phenomenon Institute
Denki Gamma Incident
Onari started to prepare himself by indicating the dateline for Takeru’s 99 days on the calendar and went to the research lab but unable to find him as Takeru rendered himself invisible. He got hit by sudden appearance of Takeru when leaving and started to introduce himself when Takeru mentioning the sage is here but he is unable to see him. Suddenly, he got a epiphany on finding heroic eyecons due to sage releasing a foul breath at him and leaves the lab. He gathered Shibuya and Narita that they will be investigating any unusual phenomenon that is happening around the town as part of their new trainings. Onari arrive at Sonoda’s development lab with Takeru to encounter Akari present too. Onari explained that he received information regarding unusual phenomenon from his private investigators when Akari asked why are they here. He leaves immediately after Takeru's battle with Denki Gamma when hearing that Sonoda who is missing in the midst of chaos earlier is a clue to Edison Eyecon. The next day, he tell Takeru that Sonoda is found and both rushed to an abandoned factory. He went after Akari, finding her lying on floor, after she got grabbed by Denki Gamma in Giant Gamma form. After the Gamma incident, Onari smirked at Akari and wants her to admit that she was floating in air because of Gamma. Onari is happy at Takeru's determination on becoming a ghost hunter and wanting to aid him. Onari put up a sign written by Shibuya outside Daitenku Temple to mark the opening of Mysterious Phenomenon Institute.
First Case For Mysterious Phenomenon Institute
Onari arrives to research lab to tell Takeru there is a supernatural incident. After watching the news of Little John, the infamous robber whom steals several money and delivers it to the needy with Takeru and Akari, he declared that this is the first case for Mysterious Phenomenon Institute. He even have business card prepared for them but got rejected when they want to do it on their own way. In the Kuratani household, Onari is meeting with Mr. Kuratani and hears an alarm sounding for intruders. Onari tries to defeat Little John but Ono Gamma attacks him until Takeru comes to his aid. Onari chased after Little John while Ghost is battling against Ono Gamma. After a tiring chase, Onari finally finds Little John's car and his hideout. He calls Takeru and Akari about this but was quickly incapacitated before he can tell them the location. Condor Denwor attacks Ono Gamma just in time to save Onari before Takeru arrives. Onari got saved by Takeru again when Ono Gamma launches an attack at them, result the latter to get injured as a result. Onari envied at Takeru’s ability to transform into Ghost. Onari and Akari went outside to view Takeru’s battle against Ono Gamma. They started to flee after few of Ono Gamma’s tomahawks flying towards them. Onari spotted something during Ghost's battle and quickly tells Ghost that there is a temporary hole created on the barrier every time Ono Gamma throws his tomahawks. After returning back to Daitenku Temple, Onari expressed his apology for being a hindrance but Takeru instead praised him over a good job for helping out finding the Gamma's weakness. With Mari turning herself in, Onari confidently believed that the Mysterious Phenomenon Institute will gain more customers until Shibuya and Narita interrupts them that they had found the information about the mysterious man Onari tried to track.
Book Gamma Incident
In Daitenku Temple’s research lab, Onari told Takeru and Akari that Shibuya and Narita found a rumor circulating around that an individual is promising to make any wish come true. Onari argues with Akari on whether to investigate the rumor or not but is interrupted by the appearance of Sennin. Onari was informed via a phone call that there is a new case for Mysterious Phenomenon Institute. Onari was assigned with Akari to investigate the strange incident that things have been seen floating around at the company’s headquarters and their affiliates’ offices.
In Azai Construction, a company affiliated with Sengoku Corporation, Onari and Akari is seen interviewing an employee regarding the floating objects incident. Onari was asked by Akari if he felt something strange about the map on the wall. After Book Gamma incident, Hashiba together with Kuroda and Risa is seen thanking Takeru, Akari and Onari for their help. After leaving Sengoku Corporation, Onari added that Risa cannot recall her actions under possession when Akari is amazed that Gamma can possess people but is curious why Gamma targeted her since she is just Hashiba’s secretary with Akari agreed that their plan would have been faster if targeted Hashiba directly.
During the final days of Takeru's time limit, Onari trains with his young charge and celebrates the New Year with him, all the while trying desperately to find the final four Eyecons. On the night before Takeru's final day, Onari falls into despair and cries, thinking he has failed Takeru and that there was nothing he could do but watch him die. He then goes to save Shibuya who was kidnapped by Jabel while Takeru tried to fight him. He then witnessed Takeru fade away and presumably pass on into the next world, weeping for his death with Akari. Their moment of mourning is cut short as Jabel then set his sights on killing them as Kamen Rider Specter tried valiantly to protect them so they could escape. They then all witness the second resurrection of Takeru and his first battle as Ghost Toucon Boost Damashii with Jabel's defeat. Onari is overjoyed at Takeru's revival and they enjoy tea later to discuss what happened with Ryu.
