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.
