Kiminari Harao (原尾 王城, Harao Kiminari) is the quarterback for Taiyo Sphinx




Harao often whines when his team does not perform well and at first tends to point out his teammates' shortcomings without acknowledging his own. He is very popular with the ladies and has his own harem. He is considered sub-par as a quarterback and is overly dependent on the protection his offensive line gives him. He also tends to hold the ball too high when passing, which can lead to fumbles when he is tackled. Before Taiyo's match against Hakyushuu, Harao reveals himself to be aware of and sensitive to the criticisms he receives because of his lack of skill. Much like Sakuraba prior to the Fall Tournament, he is considered the Sphinx's ace by fans, but his abilities do not live up to this hype. In addition, despite Taiyo's ability to advance to the Kanto Tournament year after year, Harao is intimidated by the might of teams that also compete in this higher tournament. After the match against Deimon in which Harao was more of a liability than a help, Harao worked extremely hard to improve himself.

At half-time, with the entire roster of linemen including Banba sustaining injuries, Harao forfeits the match against Hakushu. Due to Banba's efforts to protect him, he is not injured by Gaō - the first quarterback to accomplish such a feat against the lineman, though this brings him no comfort.


In interviews with Kumabukuro Riko, he has been asked these questions:

  • Of all the things you have bought until now, what is the most expensive? = "A camel bred for racing." (30,000,000 yen, 300,000 Dollars)
  • Imagine today is the last of Earth! How would you spend it? = "I'd pray with everyone, quietly waiting our demise."
