Jin Kazama (風間 陣) is a freshman in Seiseki High School, like Tsukushi, he also plays as a forward. Unlike Tsukushi, though, Jin is considered a genius soccer player, tall, good-looking, eccentric, and incredibly popular and extroverted. He also appears aloof and somewhat unmotivated before meeting Tsukushi. He is also a devoted fan of Bruce Lee. Whenever Tsukushi is in need of a handkerchief, Jin often gives him a pair of female panties to use. His random encounter with Tsukushi rekindles his passion for soccer.
AppearanceEditJin has shoulder length blonde hair and light brown eyes. He is considered to have very attractive features, which his girl classmates point out whenever they see him. He dresses up quite flashy and always stands out. Outside of his Seiseki High School training gear, the black football uniform, and the school's uniform, he isn't seen wearing shoes.

He has immense faith in his abilities and is usually mistaken for an adult instead of his age. In the manga, he says that he is homeless which probably explains his dishevelled look whenever he is in his school uniform.
