—Fuwa Hyou, to Kenji Natsume
Hyou Fuwa (不破 豹 Fuwa Hyou) is a first year small forward who plays for the Inter-high top challengers Yokohama Taiei High.
Fuwa is about 178 cm. He has orange hair with dark oddly cat-like eyes. He wears Nike Air Bakin shoes.
Fuwa first appeared by challenging Kenji Natsume to a 1-on-1 game which he later won. Fuwa has what is called by Kenji and the others an odd sense in style which makes him stand out. At first glance, he would not appear to be a typical basketball player. When excited he tends to lick his fingers, which reinforces the impression of his cat-like features.
His ball-handling skills rival—if not surpass—Kenji's. He is also a very quick and agile player. Although being 178 cm he can also perform dunks.
