    (Redirected from Kuruma)

    There's nothing wrong with getting stronger in your own way. We all fight the Neighbors together. Everyone will say 'thank goodness Kō is strong' when they see you.

    Tatsuya Kuruma to Kō Murakami, in Suzunari First.[1]


    Tatsuya Kuruma ((くる)() (たつ)(), Kuruma Tatsuya ?) is a B-rank Gunner and the captain of Suzunari First.

    Appearance[edit source]

    Kuruma is a light-skinned, slender young man of average height. He has medium-length, wavy light brown hair and black eyes with slit irises. In terms of clothing he shows a marked preference for collared cardigans[11][12] or sweaters[13][14] worn over a simpler shirt.[11][13][14]

    Kuruma's uniform consists of a forest green shrug jacket with vertical black stripes on the sides of the sleeves and horizontal black stripes around the collar. The jacket is split in two parts, covering Kuruma's arms, shoulders, and part of his ribcage and back on either side. The two sections are connected by the collar, two thin straps on the front and one on the back. Border's logo is emblazoned at the top of each sleeve. The uniform is completed by a black shirt with one vertical green line running along each side, beige pants and brown boots that reach up almost to Kuruma's knees.[15]

    Personality[edit source]

    Kuruma stands out among Border agents for his kindness and consideration, which cause others to be naturally drawn to him.[10] He gave proof of his altruism when he spontaneously cycled in the rain to meet with Tetsuji Arafune in order to put Kō Murakami's mind at ease about the former's decision to stop being an Attacker.[16] He is very forgiving, impossible to anger,[17] and keen on avoiding conflict.[18] He will always attempt to support the people around him when they need it.[1][13][14] Despite his popularity and wealth, he remains humble.[13][17][10]

    Kuruma used to be timid in battle, growing visibly anxious on numerous occasions during Aftokrator's invasion.[19][20][21] However, he appeared more steadfast in the subsequent rank wars,[22][23][24] which Kei Tachikawa hypothesized to be the result of the invasion changing him.[25]

    Quotes[edit source]

    • (To Kō Murakami) "There's nothing wrong with getting stronger in your own way. We all fight the Neighbors together. Everyone will say 'thank goodness Kō is strong' when they see you."[1]
    • (To Taichi Betsuyaku) "Hold out until Kō comes over!"[26]
    • "Compared to humanoid Neighbors, Nasu is nothing!"[24]
    • "Hit...!!"[27]
    • (To Murakami) "Even you can lose sometimes. You'll win next time. Right, Kō...?"[13]
    • (To Murakami) "C'mon, Kō. The two of us are taking on Kageura Squad!"[28]

    Trivia[edit source]

    • "Tatsuya" (達也 ?) means "to be a master/accomplished". While Kuruma (来馬 ?) is made up of the symbols, "to come", and "horse"
    • He likes aquaria and macaroni gratin.[4] His favorite instant noodles flavor is tomato, although he generally lets Betsuyaku have it.[29]
    • Kuruma is lucky enough that he has never felt sick after eating Kako's fried rice.[30]
    • His assault rifle resembles an NCM Assault Rifle.
    • The author gave Kuruma the epithet "bait boy" in the character profiles of Volume 7, referring to his role in taking down Ranbanein,[21] and has joked that his hair will grow curly like Buddha's (a nod to his kind personality).
      • Ashihara has compared Kuruma, character-wise, to Yūta Miura, joking that all the latter lacks is Kuruma's wealth.[31]
    • His English voice actor, Michael Adamthwaite, also voices Kei Tachikawa.
