Character: Minami Harumi

"Show her how you break through a barrier! I ride...Blockade!"

Minami Harumi/南ハルミ
Age: Unconfirmed
A member of FFBS, serving under Bidou Kiriya. He shares a growing fanbase with the other Brilliant Stars.

Spoiler warning: Season 1 details follow.
In ride 42 Harumi makes his debut alongside the other FFBS members, commanding a group of Foo Fighter enforcers in hunting down the upstart traitor, Yahagi Kyou. Harumi makes a reappearance in 47, defeating Tokura Misaki in the second national tournament elimination round, thereby forcing Aichi to take the field against BS' leader.

 Harumi prepares his finishing blow; Vanishing Field.

Spoilers end here.

Universal Notes: Harumi's surname, like all FFBS members, contains the kanji for "beautiful." The second kanji in it is "south." The cardinal directions are a common component of Japanese surnames.

Decks and Playstyle
Harumi uses a Kagerou deck. His preferred vanguard is the Sealed Dragon, Blockade, which prevents opponents from intercepting, thereby allowing him to deal more damage per turn.
