Zen Kirishima is one of the supporting characters of Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi. He is the editor for the famous Manga "The Kan." He is voiced by Tōru Furuya.

AppearanceEdit

Kirishima has brown hair, brown eyes and a fair skin tone. He is breifly seen in the anime wearing a business suit, but in the books, he is usually in casual atire like the Emerald Division. 

RelationshipEdit

Takafumi YokozawaEdit

According to Kirishima he was attracted to Yokozawa due to his proud yet down-to-earth personality when they first met during a meeting. After Yokozawa was rejected by his best friend and ex-lover Takano Masamune, Kirishima meets a drunk Yokozawa at a bar, and spends the night listening to him rant about his rejection.  After spending the night at a hotel, Kirishima blackmails Yokozawa into being his "servant" by threatening to show their coworkers embarassing pictures of him.  Not long afterwards, the two realize they geniuely have feelings for each other and become a couple, although Yokozawa makes Kirishima promise not tell his daughter Hiyori about it. Despite having a calm and collected exterior, Kirishima is quite possesive and prone to jealousy to the point that he even becomes jealous of his own daughter. In contrast to Yokozawa, Kirishima's childish and straight-forward personality occasionly flusters Yokozawa, where he playfully teases him on him blushing.

Hiyori KirishimaEdit

Hiyori is Kirishima's ten-year-old daughter. After the death of her mother, Kirishima doesn't really try to remarry until Yokozawa suggests the idea. After going on a few dates, he realizes that Yokozawa should be Hiyori's "mother."

Hiyori and Yokozawa are very close; they cook dinner together when Yokozawa manages to get out of the office early, and he does her hair and helps her with her homework. This is this main reason Kirishima likes to refer to Yokozawa as a mother.

Hiyori calls Yokozawa Onii-chan--meaning older brother in Japanese. Hiyori is quite fond of him, and Kirishima has used this to his advantage. He knows that Yokozawa has a soft spot for Hiyori and would do almost anything for her; this includes spending the night. 

Sakura KirishimaEdit

Sakura is the deceased wife of Kirishima. She died when Hiyori was very young. At some point Yokozawa feels as though he is an inadequate replacement for Sakura but Kirishima assures him that he is not even after this, though Yokozawa occasionally feels as though he's intruding in a place he doesn't belong. Kirishima describes Sakura as a woman of very strong character and very hard-headed. They had met in high school and after graduating, they had rushed into marriage.
