Ichizen Ameya (飴屋一喜, Ameya Ichizen) is a minor character in Advance! Kitakou Broadcasting Club and a student at St.Andreas Azumi Academy, only existing in Kitakou Pure.


Ichizen does not appear to wear the same uniform that the other boys at Azumi do, instead wearing a bright yellow vest over his uniform shirt and slacks. He wears a brown hat with bear ears over his short, somewhat shaggy hair.

He is the second-tallest of the Azumi clique.


Ichizen is cheerful, positive, and full of energy, yet reckless and not very intelligent when it comes to studies (making it a mystery as to how he got accepted into Azumi). As he's a former athlete of the track and field, he has incredible feats of super-strength. He is the son of a Tokyo toy store owner, and is always finding something to do with his time. He also likes to draw anime and to buy model kits.

His prized possession is a teddy bear (Konchinessa Bikushoru), though this same teddy bear is a cursed one that brought misfortune and death to all that had owned it, and that can transform into a vicious monster. But even so, he finds the bear's voice to be "cute".

Ichizen has the strange verbal tic of "Ssu!".


As Ichizen does not appear in the original Kitakou series, these relationships only apply to Advance! Kitakou Broadcasting Club Pure.
