Ino (伊野, Ino) is a young boy who goes to the same school as Yuzu Kurosaki and Karin Kurosaki.


He has untidy brown hair which sticks up in random places. He wears thick black glasses and his P.E. kit.


He dislikes Karin because of her nasty reputation. He likes to play video games with his friends Hashigami and Kaneda rather than going to gym class.


Agent of the Shinigami arc

While Ino, Hashigami, and Kaneda are playing video games, Ino complains about gym class. They continue playing their video game until Ino loses. When Hashigami tells him he should just delete his character, and those who do not listen to their master should die, Ino, erasing his character, states he is just going to make a new one.[1] Jumping down, Kon (in Ichigo Kurosaki's body), breaking their game, runs away as the kids are confronted by their gym teacher, who yells at them for ditching class again. As the kids try to explain what happened to them, she does not believing them, stating their video games probably broke while they were fighting with each other, and tells them to clean up their broken games.[2] Doing so, they get mad at how nobody believes them. When a Hollow attacks them while doing this, Kon arrives to save them. As they express confusion at this, Kon yells at them to run away, or else they will get killed by the Hollow. As the Hollow attacks Kon, wounding his shoulder, the crying kids run away.[3]
