Ryouta Kise

黄瀬 涼太, Ki-chan

School: Kaijou High Position: Small Forward Jersey: 7 Height: 189 cm Weight: 70 kg Age: 16 Birthday: June 18th (Gemini) Now a freshman at Kaijou High, Kise was the rookie of the "Generation of Miracles". Since he only started playing basketball in his second year of middle school, Kise was his team's least experienced member, and notes himself the weakest of the five. Kise's unique skill is his ability to mimic the moves and plays of other players. The only moves he cannot copy are the special skills of truly exceptional players, like the other members of the "Generation of Miracles". Beyond being a strong player in his own right, Kise respects Kuroko's abilities and wishes to play with him once again. He seems to have a slight obsession with Kuroko, believing that they were the two who got along most in middle school (though Kuroko said they didn't) and often blurting out random facts about him (mentioning that Kuroko was an Aquarius, even though Kasamatsu was talking about Midorima). Also, he's a model in his free time, so girls are always mobbing him.

Later on in the manga series, it's revealed that Kise had developed the strength to mimic the other Generation of Miracles' member's play (shown as Midorima's absolute accuracy, Aomine's flexibility, and also Murasakibara's monstrous strength), which resulted from his hard work these past days. And also because the technique costs lots of energy even from the original user, Kise can only use them for 5 minutes during a match.
