Ikuya Kirishima (桐嶋 郁弥 Kirishima Ikuya) is one of the main characters in the movie High☆Speed！－Free! Starting Days－ and Free!'s third season, Free!-Dive to the Future-. He was also a minor character in the light novel High☆Speed!. He is the younger brother of the Iwatobi Junior High swimming club's captain, Natsuya Kirishima. He is currently studying at Shimogami University, where he is on the swim team, alongside his friend from high school, Hiyori.
Ikuya is a cool dude with teal hair, brown eyes and long black eyelashes. He and his brother do not look particularly alike, but have the same eye color.
As of Free!-Dive to the Future-, Ikuya's hair seems to be slightly darker and shorter and he is shown to be quite buff. He currently wears knee-length, black swimmers with subtle brown and gray designs.
In the beginning, Ikuya was a bit of an angsty jerk to everyone, all the time. He spent a good portion of his time crying about everything that happened to him. He gradually started to warm up to his friends (and his brother who he despised for some odd reason), though he still retains the quiet part of his personality.
At first he was reluctant about joining the swimming club, thinking of it as just "playing around" and not taking things seriously. After joining he's able to change thanks to his team, leaving his past behind. He is a childhood friend of Nii Satomi (only appears in the light novel).
