Kazuharu Fukuyama (福山 和春 Fukuyama Kazuharu), referred by almost all the characters simply as Fukuyama, is a character in the anime and manga series Girls Bravo. He is one of the series' major characters and commonly acts as a de facto antagonist, following from several episodes that involves Yukinari Sasaki, Miharu Sena Kanaka, Kirie Kojima and Koyomi Hare Nanaka trying to overcome the schemes that Fukuyama sets up so as to get something out of them (most commonly sexual favor from Kirie).

Personality Edit

Fukuyama is considerably perverted and goes to great extent and great expense to get close and do perverted things to Miharu Sena Kanaka and Kirie Kojima, particularly Miharu. He has been known to organize cat fight tournaments, using black magic and several other schemes to get to see Kirie nude, only succeeding once in a plot involving a complex board game tournament, which resulted in Kirie losing and having to give him a sponge bath with her breasts, which indicates that he has a deep obsession with Kirie's breasts, to the point that he keeps a shrine to them in his closet.

Despite all this, he is not such a bad guy as he is very protective of Lisa Fukuyama (Kazuharu's younger sister) and worries when he can't find her, but he strongly disproves of Lisa's attraction to Yukinari Sasaki. When he first meets Tomoka Lana Jude, he is a very kind and compassionate guy as he takes her back to Yukinari Sasaki's house when Fukuyama realizes that she is lost. He continues to help her when he sees her, and the two eventually develop a sibling-like relationship and often teams up with her. In the anime, Tomoka usually refers to Fukuyama as "big brother" after these events. He generally acts with contempt towards Yukinari but does act friendlier (i.e. not constantly insulting him) towards him eventually. He has often been showing to have genuine feelings for Kirie as he is willing to injure himself to protect her in the last episode.

Trivia Edit

  • The name Kazuharu means "peace, harmony" (和) (kazu) and "light, sun, male" (陽), "spring" (春) or "clear weather" (晴) (haru).
  • Kazuharu's surname Fukuyama means "fortunate" (福) (fuku) and "mountain, hill" (山) (yama).
  • Like Yukinari Sasaki (who breaks into hives whenever he comes into contact with girls and women), Fukuyama breaks into hives whenever he comes into contact with boys and men.
  • Fukuyama is similar to Kazuha. However, there are some differences between the two guys:
    • Kazuha has darker hair and he is shown to see women as only mere playthings, which angers Fukuyama as he surprisingly sees women as being of great significance, despite his lecherous actions towards them.
