Kazumi Fukuda (福田 和美, Fukuda Kazumi) is a minor character in Battle Royale II: Requiem.

Backstory[]

Kazumi was the leader of the delinquent girls (Yuka Mifune and Ai Yazawa). Kazumi was afraid of being alone, so she dressed outrageously to stand out. She transferred to Shikanotoride after she was harassed after her father died. She respects her mother because she sends her money.

Before the Program[]

When Kazumi and Shintaro Makimura are called to retrieve their gear, Shintaro refuses to participate while Kazumi chooses to participate and goes to get her gear. Because of his refusal, Shintaro is killed and Kazumi's collar activates, prompting Riki Takeuchi to explain a new rule: the students are linked to their seating partners; if one student dies or they get more than 50 meters away from each other the collars will activate; something he didn't mention however, was that there's a noticeable lag between when a student dies and when their partners collar activates. After confirming this is true, Kazumi rushed to Shintaro and begged him to wake up, before rushing around the room begging her classmates for help, to which they refused and shoved her away. Kazumi was pushed into the blackboard with the countries bombed by America on it, knocking it off its peg. When her collar began admitting a continuous beep, Kazumi rushed for the door, yelling for her mom before the collar detonated, killing her instantly.

Etymology[]

  • The name Kazumi means "harmony, peace" (和) (kazu) and "beautiful" (美) (mi).
  • Kazumi's surname Fukuda means "happiness, fortune/good fortune, blessing, luck, wealth, weal" (福) (fuku) and "field, rice paddy" (田) (ta/da).
