Koichi Kizakura is a character featured in Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy - Side: Future and a participant in the Final Killing Game. He also appears in Side: Despair.
He is a member of the Future Foundation and leader of the 3rd Division. He is also a recruiter, who seeks out survivors to help grow Future Foundation.
Before the Tragedy, Koichi was the official homeroom teacher of Class 77-B at Hope's Peak Academy, until Chisa Yukizome took over his job so he could become a full-time talent scout.
Koichi died saving Kyoko Kirigiri by disobeying his NG code and opening his left hand to catch her when she fell through a hole set by Ruruka Ando. He is the seventh victim of the Final Killing Game overall.
Koichi is a relaxed-looking man with blue eyes and ragged blonde hair. He has a pencil-thin mustache and goatee. He wears a worn down, white fedora, a faded dark blue tie and a black suit with the Future Foundation ID pinned to the jacket's lapel. He also wears light brown slip-ons. During his time as a Hope's Peak scout, he wore a white tuxedo, with a green undershirt and black vest top, with a blue, almost gray tie. He also wore a white hat with a black decoration going around the circumference, near the flappy bit.
Koichi is a relaxed, passive and whimsical man who chooses not to get involved in arguments. He is sometimes carefree to a fault; before the events of The Tragedy, he was shown to be somewhat irresponsible and would rather get drunk than teach a class.
>However, Koichi is also a reliable and quick-witted person with a sharp intuition, which allows him to assess people's talents, as well as their true character. He is also very observant and intelligent, although he does not usually show it.
