June 18 is the birthday of a certain forward wearing the #7 jersey from Kaijo High school, and that certain forward certainly has a lot of devout fans.. and saying devout would be an understatement to say the least.
Fans have shown their support and admiration for ‘Kuroko no Basket’s Ryota Kise through various social media like twitter. His birthday is even trending in Japan!
Fans have also celebrated his birthday by baking cakes and tarts, purchasing ‘Kuroko no Basket’ merchandise featuring him, offering his picture some flowers… and building shrines with lots and lots and lots of key chains in his honor.
Well… um… they certainly are devoted. Ryota Kise is a Kaijou High School forward wearing the #7 jersey in the sports manga ‘Kuroko no Basket‘ written by Tadatoshi Fujimaki and serialized in Shounen Jump. He has the ability to copy any technique he sees and improve on it and judging from the looks of things, pretty popular as well.
Oh, and if that’s not enough, here’s a picture of fans celebrating Seijuro Akashi’s birthday last December 20.
