Takumi proves himself to be one of the best archers in the game. Similar to Ryoma, his divine weapon, Fujin Yumi, gives him an innately huge amount of power, plus a high critical hit rate, that more than compensates for his average Strength.

He is a case of overspecialization at its finest, making for a mediocre unit so long as he can’t use his bow. Spear Fighter, his secondary class, provides very few skill options he can use (Lancefaire is useless). By finding him a good friend or spouse, you can give him access to Bow Knight or Mechanist , expanding his skillset without losing access to his bow.

But overspecialization was never a bad thing. Takumi requires almost no work to use. And given that there are several chapters where 99% of the enemies are flying, you have yourself one of the most useful units in the game.
