Biography[edit | edit source]
Persona 3[edit | edit source]
Kazushi is a member of any of the three Sports Team that the main character joins. He is a determined sports freak who is aiming for the team championship trophy, which he says is done for the sake of his nephew. After establishing his trust with the protagonist, Kazushi reveals that he is suffering from some sort of knee problem, but asks the protagonist to keep it a secret, determined not to let the problem interfere with his training.
Ignoring the pain, Kazushi continues training, but find that he could not keep up with other teammates' progress. Angered at this predicament, Kazushi finally pushed his knee to the limit, to the point that if he continues with his training, he might not be able to walk at all. Finally, with the protagonist's urging he decided to tell the team about his injuries, pull out of the championship and go to the hospital for surgery.
After spending some time at the hospital, Kazushi's knee injuries have healed. He admitted that all he did was nothing more but for his own pride. He promised to do better for the championships next year, and resolved to listen to other people's advice.
Persona 3 Portable[edit | edit source]
If the player chooses to play as the female protagonist, the Chariot arcana Social Link, while still sports related, is replaced by Rio Iwasaki. Kazushi still makes many appearances throughout the game in the female storyline, usually alongside Yuko Nishiwaki (such as during the sports retreat to Yasoinaba in early August) or Kenji Tomochika (during the school trip to Kyoto in November). Many references are still made to the male protagonist's Social Link events, namely his injured knee.
