Keigo Asano

浅野 啓吾
Keigo is typically a goofy and an extremely hyperactive character often using overlydramatic movements and words to act out his feelings. In other respects he is the stereotypical Japanese teenager: he enjoys watching fireworks playing roleplayinggames going to beach parties and so forth. Originally little more than a source of comic relief Keigo becomes a more prominent character later in the series. The Asano family consists of Keigos mother father his sister Mizuho and Keigo himself. Like Tatsuki Arisawa he is unusual in that he lives with both of his parents unlike many other recurring characters in the series. A goodnatured teenager Keigo is used mainly for comical effect usually in situations involving failed attempts to woo girls and interacting with Ichigo. He is good friends with fellow student Mizuiro Kjima whose calm innocent demeanor and success with women acts as a foil to Keigos impulsive wannabe personality. Keigo appears to be a shallow character at first glance with a passion for slacking off. Indeed he takes great pride in not making it to the honors roster higher than the 50th ranking and labels those who do so traitors including Ichigo and Chad who made the 23rd and 11th ranks respectively. However Mizuiro states that Keigo is much smarter than his bad grades show. Later it is revealed that Keigo can see ghosts and even soul reapers in the Hueco Mundo/Arrancar arc. The first soul reaper Keigo ever saw was Ikkaku Madarame who saved him from an arrancar. Keigo also got to see Ichigo in soul reaper form before Ichigo left for Hueco Mundo at Uraharas underground training site with Tatsuki and Mizuiro. Source: Wikipedia
