Haizaki Ryouhei

Haizaki Ryouhei (灰崎(はいざき) 凌兵(りょうへい)) is a character from Inazuma Eleven Ares no Tenbin. He's one of the three protagonists, along with Inamori Asuto and Nosaka Yuuma. He's a forward for Seishou Gakuen and later on, Inakuni Raimon. He also plays as a forward for Inazuma Japan in Inazuma Eleven Orion no Kokuin.


Haizaki has tanned skin tone and is tall in height. He has a long, silver-gray hair with some bangs floating and which covers his right eye. He also has a multi-colored eye consisting of gray, red and small yellow.


Haizaki is Seishou Gakuen's ace striker. He's shown to be an arrogant, uncaring player and who, as stated by himself, does only what he wants to do, going as far as ignoring Kidou Yuuto's orders to participate in the match against Inakuni Raimon, until the latter informs him that they may be the 'light' he has been searching for.

It's stated by Kudou Michiya that he rarely gets agitated during a match, nor does he play it to win. However, once it happens, he turns into an overly aggressive player. He also seems prone to have almost maniacal laughing fits.



Haizaki lived in a small house with his mother Haizaki Mitsuko, when Miyano Akane moved in the house next to him. As Haizaki was shy, he closed the door, however, Akane knocked on his door presenting him a teddy bear as a token of their first meeting. Then, they became friends and played together a lot. Even his mother remarked that he had become a lot more happy after meeting Akane. Then, Akane mentioned that she's going to change school, as she wanted to learn a lot to be able to cure others from sickness. She said that she went to a school called "Ares". As Haizaki waited for her return, Akane took the Ares no Tenbin program, only to return in a comatose state, shocking and angering Haizaki on her return. When Haizaki saw an explanation by Midouin of the Ares no Tenbin program, he seemed very angry. Haizaki revealed that he will play soccer until he can get revenge for breaking Akane's heart and beat the teams to prove the worthlessness of the Ares no Tenbin program.

Haizaki walked out of school and encountered two of his teammates, who asked him where he's going, as their training was about to begin. Haizaki however, decided to pass on training, as he thought it didn't matter whether he plays or not. Then, Mizukamiya Seiryuu also came in, questioning why Haizaki purposely disrupted the team, though Haizaki didn't really reply on that. Haizaki traveled to the arcade in town by train, to try and grab a teddy bear from one of the machines. There he encountered Inamori Asuto, who spotted him in the arcade. Haizaki didn't remember him at first, but when Asuto explained where they met, he remembered "the newbie team", Inakuni Raimon. When Asuto asked why he wasn't preparing for his next match, Haizaki said he won't play in the match, as he himself decided so. Haizaki then walked out, as he grabbed the teddy bear and went to the hospital, being followed by Kozoumaru Sasuke. There he visited Akane, where he gave her the teddy bear, wishing that she'd return to normal. Walking out of the hospital, Haizaki saw an interview with Gouenji Shuuya on the TV, saying that Haizaki was Seishou Gakuen's both strength and weakness, which made him angry. At the pre-match meeting, he got a big shock by Kidou Yuuto's line-up, presenting him as the goalkeeper. As he didn't understand why he's put there, he got really angry. He then received his goalkeeper jersey from Otonashi Haruna. Haizaki asked why they had to be this scared of Gouenji, only to hear he'll find out during the match.

When the match started, Haizaki quickly faced Gouenji's Fire Tornado, shocking him by the ferocity, though Gouenji was holding back. However, two of his defenders saved him by blocking the shot with their bodies. As Haizaki felt humiliated, frustration started building up inside him, leading to him exclaiming Kidou's name. Kidokawa Seishuu quickly returned to Haizaki's goal with quick movements, releasing their override hissatsu technique, Bakunetsu Storm, which blew Haizaki back in the net, scoring the first goal for Kidokawa Seishuu. From frustration of conceding goals, he kicked he ball with force towards Kidou, though he controlled it easily. From the kick-off, Kidokawa quickly approached Seishou's goal again, this time launching the Triangle Z. As the defenders of Seishou Gakuen suspect another override hissatsu, they marked Gouenji, but let the Mukata triplets free. Triangle Z was shot towards Gouenji, but redirected at the last second towards the goal, scoring past and shocked Haizaki, making the score 2-0. During half-time, Haizaki confronted Kidou to switch him back as a forward, but Kidou refused, as he had a plan to win the match and for Haizaki who needed to figure out why he's a goalkeeper. Haizaki thought he would never lose to Gouenji, but Kidou quickly snapped back not to underestimate him. Haizaki's individual strength would not be enough to beat Gouenji's teamwork. In the second half, Haizaki quickly leaped forward, stealing the ball from Mukata Masaru, charging on his own. Passing two players, he eventually was stopped by three players of Kidokawa Seishuu and got the ball stolen by Nishigaki Mamoru's Spinning Cut. This left the goal open, but the Fire Tornado shot by Gouenji, was saved by the team effort of Seishou's defenders. Mizukamiya then ordered Haizaki to think about how to protect the goal. Haizaki quickly figured how to, as he analyzed the attack pattern of Kidokawa Seishuu. He stole the ball from Gouenji and ordered the defense around. As he figured out how to play as a goalkeeper, he got switched back to the forward position and charged together with Kidou and his teammates, facing of Kidokawa Seishuu's defense.
