(不二 周助, Fuji Syūsuke
?) is a fictional character in the anime and manga The Prince of Tennis
. His name is romanized as Syusuke Fuji
in the Japanese anime, and Shusuke Fuji
in all the English versions.
The kanji for Fuji (不二) stands for 'not second', 'unparalleled', or 'peerless'. His name can also be seen as a bit of a pun when his hobbies and favorite foods are taken into account; Fujifilm is the world's largest photographic and imaging company, and one of Fuji's hobbies is photography. Fuji apples are a type of apple, and they are one of Fuji's favorite foods.
In the Valentine Chocolate specials from the manga, Fuji has constantly been in the top three recipients of chocolate, with the exception of the years 2005 and 2006.
