Appearance

Kazemaru has aquamarine hair tied into a ponytail with a red band, with bangs that cover his left eye. He has light brown eyes. When he is wearing casual clothes, he usually wears a white long-sleeved shirt with a yellow sleeveless jacket and brown pants as shown in episode 78.

In episode 64 Kazemaru's aquamarine hair is worn loose, without the hair tie that usually ties it up. He wears a black cloak that has a hood that covers his whole head before revealing himself to Endou and the others. Underneath his cloak is the Dark Emperors uniform. He also has the Aliea meteorite around his neck in a necklace-like form.

In Inazuma Eleven GO, he has gotten taller and his hair is worn down with a slight bit of hair tied at the back (a half-moon ponytail). His new hairstyle has a lot of similarities with Edgar Valtinas's. The right-side bangs (the ones near the uncovered eye) are now straight. He wears a light brown jacket, gray trousers and dark brown shoes.

As of Inazuma Eleven Ares no Tenbin, his original hairstyle is slightly different. Similar to his GO appearance, his long fringe extends and wraps around the back of his head, and under there untied hair, not all pulled up for his ponytail this time, falling around his neck. But whereas in GO his fringe would tie to a small ponytail, it can't be seen where the loop of his hair ends.

Personality

Kazemaru is portrayed as a competitive character with a nice and friendly personality, as he likes to play against strong players. He is shown to be very kind and caring to his teammates, but can be slow thinking as seen in episode 5. However, he sometimes has conflicted feelings within himself. Like he is shown to have some confidence issues under high pressure, and is afraid of not being able to keep up with the rest of his teammates. In season 2, he was too desperate to disbelieve that his team could defeat Aliea Gakuen, which led him to leave Raimon and join Dark Emperors later. He is also reliable and somehow has an influence on his teammates. This is shown when he left the team, Kurimatsu did the same. It also pushed Endou over the edge, which made him want to give up soccer in episode 45. He somehow has a good leadership, which is most prominently witnessed during season 3 when he took over as captain while Endou, Kidou, Sakuma, and Fudou were helping Orpheus. He is close to his teammates, especially with his childhood friend Endou. It can be seen when Kazemaru was under Aliea Meteorite's control, he still remembered how tenacious Endou was. Moreover, when they won against Little Gigant, he jumped up and hugged Endou. He usually hangs out with his friends, like Midorikawa in episode 78, Endou and Hiroto in episode 89.  He's kind of the type who can sacrifice for his friends. It can be shown that he pushed Endou out and took the ball which was purposely targeted him in episode 2 and 28. Same as in the first movie, he covered for Kanon.

In the manga, he seems to care for his team as he's the one who taught Kabeyama about defensive tactics. Although he was injured in the match against Teikoku Gakuen, he kept cheering for the rest of his teammates.

In some official sources, it is stated that he was popular among girls, just like Fubuki Shirou, because of his gentle personality.

In Ares/Orion universe, he still has his original traits, but more serious at the first time. It was revealed later that he kept his coolness to follow Kageyama's plan to help his team. He is also close with Gouenji, it was seen when they usually hang out to watch FF's matches. During Asia prelims of FFI, after Endou and Kidou had been forced to leave Inazuma Japan, his leadership was shown that he recommended the team train more, and fired up them from the start of the match with Eternal Dancers.

Plot

Season 1

Originally a member of the Raimon athletics club, Kazemaru was asked by Endou to join Raimon's soccer club for their upcoming match against Teikoku Gakuen as they were short on players. At first, he said he would consider the offer, but after seeing Endou practising by himself intensely, he decided to join the team. During the first match against Teikoku he became horrified by the type of football which Teikoku plays.

During the match against Inazuma Eleven, he and Gouenji brought a new hissatsu; Honoo no Kazamidori. Just before the first match in the Football Frontier tournament against Sengoku Igajima, he had to decide whether to stay on the Raimon soccer team or to go back to the athletics club. This was brought on by Miyaska, who kept pushing him to go back to the athletics club. However, after watching him play so passionately, Miyasaka allowed him to stay with the soccer team. After that, he won the Football Frontier tournament along with the Raimon team.

Season 2

Kazemaru fought against the teams from Aliea Gakuen at the beginning of season 2, but as the story progressed, he began to lose confidence in himself, seeing that he could not keep up with the levels of Aliea Gakuen, so he could not steal the ball and pass to his teammates. After Raimon fought The Genesis, he said that he wasn't strong enough and left. In the game, however, Kazemaru left the team after being badly injured during the fight with The Genesis from pushing himself too hard and being specifically targeted (Gran did not approve of this and first exhibited his moral conflict). At the end of episode 63, Kazemaru appeared again, as the antagonist and the captain of Dark Emperors. The team consisted of previous Raimon members that left the team who had used the Aliea Meteorite to become stronger. Later, Endou's high spirit and willpower for soccer awakened Kazemaru and the other members from the meteorite's control. The Aliea Meteorite broke into pieces and he and the others were free once more. In the game, Kazemaru sheds tears to thank Endou before the Dark Emperors faint one-by-one, whereas in the anime Endou is the only one who faints.

Season 3

Three months after the Aliea Gakuen arc, Kazemaru was called by Coach Hibiki to be one of Inazuma Japan representatives. During the match he shows a great speed when passing by Tsunami, creating a wind pressure that threw him to the side. Later, he, along with Kogure and Kurimatsu, use their bodies to deflect Tsunami Boost. He was one of the chosen to join Inazuma Japan at the conclusion of the representative match. During the match with Neo Japan in episode 77, coach Kudou ordered Kazemaru to go somewhere and he returns very sweaty. He was then substituted into the match and it turned out that he completed the hissatsu Fuujin no Mai, which successfully broke their rival's defense, and passed the ball to Gouenji, helped them score 1 point to tie with the foe.

Kazemaru is seen to be taking a walk with Midorikawa in episode 78 and is also the fifth/sixth person to be spying on Endou and Fuyuka with Rika, Touko, Kabeyama, and Kurimatsu being the first four. This episode is his debut wearing casual clothes.

In the match with Fire Dragon in episode 82, he was able to steal the ball from Nagumo in the air while using Route of Sky with other Inazuma Japan members. In episode 83, he and Kabeyama, Hiroto had a conflict with Fudou because of his rough and seems-to-be-uncooperative playstyle, but they finally connected with each other thanks to Endou and Kidou. After using Killer Fields, Fudou passed the ball to Kazemaru, let him use a new hissatsu called Tatsumaki Otoshi - it was originally a hissatsu that Tsunami, who was already injured in the match, had in mind to use with Kabeyama - then made a goal for Inazuma Japan.

During the time when Endou, Kidou, Sakuma and Fudou helped Orpheus to defeat Team K, he was the temporary captain of the team when they were playing against The Empire, but was injured after saving their team almost loose one more goal in some last minutes in the first half of the match, making Hiroto the next temporary captain.

In the match with Unicorn, he learned another new hissatsu, The Hurricane with Fubuki which they used to score their first goal evening the score to 1-1 .

In episode 123, after Inazuma Japan's kickoff, he received a pass from Hiroto and touched the ball to Someoka, who tried to score with Dragon Slayer V3. Unfortunately, the hissatsu was easily blocked by Rococo's God Hand X. As the Little Gigant's goalkeeper made a pass to Maxi, Kazemaru quickly stole the ball and proceeded to get past Kito Ryand with Fuujin no Mai 改. He then passed the ball to Hiroto, who tried to score a goal with Ryuusei Blade V3, not having much better result then Someoka.

In episode 126 he is seen graduating from Raimon like the others, and when it was Endou's turn to receive the diploma, it was seen that he and the rest of Raimon were all crying because they were about to go their separate ways.

In episode 127, they had one last graduation match with each other, which ended in neither group scoring a goal, since they were all equally matched; all of them listened to Endou's last speech, and promised that they'll keep on playing soccer from Endou's words "Let's play soccer!" to which everyone happily agreed on.

Inazuma Eleven GO

Kazemaru made his reappearance in episode 43, where he, along with Kira Hiroto, Midorikawa Ryuuji, Fudou Akio and Kabeyama Heigorou, were seen watching the match between Raimon and Dragonlink in Amano Mikado Stadium.

Inazuma Eleven Ares no Tenbin

Kazemaru first appeared in episode 3 of Outer Code as Teikoku's reinforcement commitee and Kageyama's new underling. He was the only one who knows about his commands before the matches. At the beginning of Teikoku's match against Inakuni Raimon, he didn't disapprove the use of some special shoes controlled by Kageyama or Shimerigawa being given the captain's band, much to Sakuma's surprise. Inakuni Raimon took advantage of Teikoku's slowed down opponents and Asuto managed to get past him with Inabikari Dash.

After the shoes that slowed them down are turned off, Kazemaru and the others' speed went back to normal and they managed to surpass the exhausted Inakuni Raimon due to preserving their stamina. He used Shippuu Dash to get past Hiyori and had a flashback which revealed that Kageyama had manipulated Kazemaru into working for him after reminding him of Raimon's lost against Barcelona Orb and his desire to make Teikoku stronger.

During the second half, Fudou and Sakuma convinced him to give the team their normal shoes because they should play their own soccer instead of relying on technology, but after the match end, Kazemaru revealed that Teikoku going against Kageyama's orders was part of his plan all along.

After being out of the tournament, he and Gouenji went together to watch matches of Raimon, and even with Endou, Kidou, Sakanoue in the final match.

Inazuma Eleven Orion no Kokuin

Kazemaru was chosen as a defender for Inazuma Japan. The players who were selected, aside from Nosaka and Nishikage, came together wearing their uniform and went to their training facility with the bus. Later the whole team was introduced to their coaches and managers. The next day, Clario Orvan appeared, using Diamond Ray which went straight through Kazemaru and the rest of the team.

Kazemaru was chosen as one of the starting players for the match between Inazuma Japan and Red Bison. Baek Shi-Woo used Red Break to try and score the first goal for his team but Kazemaru used his new hissatsu Spinning Fence to prevent him shooting, also stealing the ball in the progress, then gave it back to Endou. After Baek Shi-Woo scored against them he spoke to Endou asking if he was okay and commenting on how they used a dirty trick to score. When Gouenji scored using Last Resort, Kazemaru alongside Hiura joined him in his celebration.
