To all Kuroko no Basket fan! I’m sure you already knew this guy . But if you still don’t even know or read Kuroko no Basket yet! then you’ll probably missing something cool! especially if you’re a basketball fanatic like me. For your information, Kuroko No Basket is japanese manga and anime series about basketball. I totally recommend this series especially if you read manga’s and love to play basketball too.
Anyway! I just want you to know who is Kiyoshi Teppei of Kuroko No Basket. For me he’s one of the most interesting character in Kuroko no Basket series. He’s one of the senior member of Seirin basketball team and actually the one who founded it. He was also the former ace player of Seirin but got injured and hospitalized for so long that’s why he didn’t played in the first few matches of Seirin when Kagami and Kuroko entered the team.
Talking about his basketball skills as a player, Kiyoshi Teppei is the tallest member of Seirin so he is center their team. At first look, you will think that he’s just a normal player who played center position but it’s not. Because the truth is that he is a very odd player who is so hard to predict because Kiyoshi despite being in a center position has also possess a great passing and dribbling ability that a point guard has, which make him a very big threat in every team that he played. It’s proven when he played in a point guard position in their match against Yosen.
Kiyoshi is one of the underrated player in the series despite of his great skill. That’s why he was also one of the member of “Uncrowned Kings”. One character in the series named Iwamura mentioned that he is actually the second strongest center in the league behind Kiyoshi’s greatest rival Atsushi Murasakibara.
Kiyoshi was not just called as “Iron Heart” for nothing beecause actually he is a very determined person and has “never say die” personality. He always willing to sacrifice everything even though it might worsen his injury just to help his team to win, that’s also the reason why Murasakibara hates him so much. And even though sometime his team was being down my many points in a game, he still smile and always said a catchphrase “Let’s have some fun” during a game. He seems a bit goofy and bit weird at first look but during a game he is totally a very smart and skilled player who love and enjoy playing basketball and that’s what makes him a very special player in this series.
