Yuta Sugiura (杉浦 雄太, Sugiura Yuta) is a 3rd-year student, as well as AGHS's acting student body president. He's also the Taurus Zodiarts (タウラス・ゾディアーツ, Taurasu Zodiātsu), who evolved from a unspecified Zodiarts, a Horoscopes with abilities over people he had sign a contract.
He was found by Libra using his Eye of Laplace while doing the final Astronaut Selection Exam.
Sugiura is generally a not a bad person (and at first agreed completely with AGHS's individuality), making the Amanogawa Campus Bylaws that limited students' individual freedoms on the wishes of Sayaka Mibu after she was hospitalized, and due to his own feelings for her. But in order for the bylaws to work, he is not above using his powers as the Taurus Zodiarts to submit students to his will in order for them to fit Mibu's image.
While participating in the school's annual Astronaut Selection Exam, Sugiura is found by the Libra Zodiarts whose Eye of Laplace show him to have the potential to evolve into the Taurus Zodiarts. Prior to being given the switch, he argued with Sayaka over changing the school rules. Sugiura supported the students' freedoms, while Sayaka wanted stricter rules. Behind these arguements, however, Sugiura had strong feelings for Sayaka. When a quartet of students began to abuse their freedoms. Sayaka went to confront them alone, and they shoved her down a flight of stairs. After Sayaka was hospitalized when she fell down the stairs when confronting the four students, Sugiura was installed as acting student coucil president. Once given the Taurus Switch, Sugiura decides to make changes to the various rules around school based on his feelings for her, forcing everyone to stick to a strict dress code and limiting the individuality of the student body.
After getting Gentaro and JK under his control, Kamen Rider Meteor fights him with the Taurus Zodiarts about to make the final blow until he is interrupted by the Virgo Zodiarts. Virgo explains that Meteor could be useful when under his control. Meteor then challenges Taurus to what he's best at in order to break his hold, which is golf.
While Yuta had the better experience, Meteor's hard work managed to have him win the match. Enraged on being beaten, Yuta went back on his word and attacked Meteor. However, Gentaro gets Sayaka to convince Sugiura to break his hold, finally admitting that it isn't right to manipulate others in order to get what you want. Gentaro befriends him, and Sugiura returns to himself just as Virgo arrives. Though the Virgo Zodiarts offers him a final chance to redeem himself, the change of heart was total. Sugiura transformed into the Taurus Zodiarts one final time, screamed "I DON'T WORK FOR YOU PEOPLE ANYMORE!" and charged the senior Horoscopes, only to be sent into the Dark Nebula while his Taurus Switch was taken and given to Gamou. Though, Sugiura is revealed to be very much alive, but in a suspend animation in the M-BUS.
As the acting student body president, Sugiura makes decisions such as changes to the AGHS school rules. Any who do not oblige to these rules would be physically punished or challenged to a game where Sugiura becomes the Taurus Zodiarts. As the Taurus Zodiarts, his main power is to force people into keeping with a contracted promise through the use of his wand called Gu-anna (グアンナ,, Guanna) as well as taking people's souls and turning them into loyal drones, doing so to the student council and most of the school. He is also physically imposing, being both strong and surprisingly fast in close combat, which he uses to his advantage in battle.
The kana that make up Yuta Sugiura's name (すぎうらゆうた) can be rearranged to form たうらすぎゆう, or Taurusu Gyū (タウラス 牛, Taurus Bull).
