Watson attends Fujimizaka Middle School. On October 7, 2016, he is playing games with his friends Kenta and Kouki at Success Academy when the guard tells them off. He decides to use a navigation app to return home, but it leads him into a winding direction that eventually crosses paths with a dog who attacks him. The next day, he heads to Kashinoki Books extremely disheveled, regaling his tale of woe to Haru Shinkai and Yuujin Oozora. This causes Ai Kashiki's father to realize that Ai has not returned from her errand, prompting Haru to call for a search for her that Watson joins. He is also a player of Fantasy Saga, and his character in the game is named "Watson Schneider" (ワトソン・シュナイダー Watoson Shunaidā?). On October 15, he is the fourth-ranked player the world and has already completed a newly released quest, to the admiration of his friends. When Haru asks to see his equipment, his character has been shown to be reverted to level 1 without any of his legendary equipment. Watson panics afterward, attempting to contact customer service to no avail. The cause is an L-Virus-infected Ropuremon and when he is purified, Watson's account returns to normal, much to his relief. On October 31, Waston is among the friends Ai takes photos of to send to him.
