He's one of the first seven members of Raimon that appears in episode 1, playing a video game on a Nintendo DS.


Kurimatsu and Shourinji Ayumu are two of the smallest members in Raimon. He has chipmunk-like features with round black eyes and exaggerated buck-teeth. His hair is also styled to match his facial features, colored brown and kept short with the exception of his sideburns, which grow past his ears. Kurimatsu's hair forms a spike atop his head, making it look like a chestnut.


He's very energetic and positive, always praising members (typically Kabeyama) and raising the overall mood and spirit of the team. He seems to be worried about somethings or someone, like Kazemaru. He is kind and puts his team before himself as shown in season three, where he injures his leg in an attempt to pass the ball.
