Kisugi Teppei is a substitute of Japan. His best friend is Taki and they have always been together since primary school. Together with Taki and Izawa, the three of them form the Shutetsu Trio which is a combination of fast passes to each other.
Kisugi went to the Nankatsu middle school, and became a regular of their soccer team in the 2nd year. After Shutetsu, he was the self-claimed scorer of Nankatsu. Among the best members of the national tournament, he was part of the All Japan Jr. Youth team, but didn't get a chance to take part in matches.
In World Youth, Kisugi became a regular in the first round of the Asian preliminaries, since Hyuga and Nitta was forced to leave All Japan. Although he had played against Aoi in school, he didn't have any memories of him.
In Road to 2002, Kisugi became a pro soccer player by joining Cerezo Osaka, a J-League club. Selected in the Japanese Olympic team, he only played for a bit in a friendly match against Denmark.
