He is a feminine boy who is said to often get mistaken for a girl due to his girlish appearance and graceful movements. He was the fifth member of Raimon to participate in the revolution. He is generally in a good mood and tries to comfort others when needed. He is Shindou's close friend and is shown to be caring and concerned about Shindou, especially after the match against Kuro no Kishidan where Shindou fainted from exhaustion and ended up in infirmary.
In his concern, Kirino spent the entire time in the hospital with the other Raimon members while they waited for the outcome and the result of Shindou's surgery. He seems to have a rivalry relationship with Kariya Masaki. He doesn't seem to like rough-style playing, such as Kariya's style of play soccer.
In episode 18 of Chrono Stone, he's also shown to be somewhat jealous of Shindou, stating during a flashback "But I was always the one chasing after you... even now, I still look at you from behind.". He is seen standing in dismay and shock because Endou Daisuke didn't choose him as a member to time travel to France. However, Kariya gave up his place for Kirino by feigning a stomach ache, implying that Kariya and Kirino have gotten much closer.
Before Inazuma Eleven GO
As seen in Kirino's flashback, both Shindou and Kirino were in the second team before they were members of the first team. Kirino stated that they were practicing with each other a lot but that he was still chasing after Shindou. Sometime later, both Shindou and Kirino moved up to the first team when they were still first year students at Raimon Junior High. Shindou was appointed as captain by Sangoku Taichi, who was then the current captain, and Kirino was present at that time as well, encouraging Shindou to take the captain title.
Inazuma Eleven GO
He was first seen along with the whole Raimon team, that was led by Shindou Takuto to help the second team that got attacked by Tsurugi Kyousuke. Afterwards, Raimon had a match against Kuro no Kishidan but they were badly injured by the team. At one point, Matsukaze Tenma was added to the team temporarily, being switched out with Minamisawa Atsushi. Tenma was shown to be great at dashing fast against opponents. Kirino and the others asked Tenma to pass the ball to them but they were marked so Tenma had to keep on dribbling the ball. Afterwards Tsurugi used Kensei Lancelot to get the ball from Tenma which worked. After seeing what has befallen to his team, Shindou used his Keshin to get back on Tsurugi. After the clash between their Keshin, Shindou collapsed and he was brought to the infirmary by coach Kudou and Otonashi Haruna, with Kirino by his side.
Kirino watched over Shindou while he was in the infirmary and Shindou woke up eventually, not remembering the events that happened. Kirino told Shindou about what happened, also telling Shindou that it was the first time he had seen him make a scary face like that, and stated that the others were cleaning up the old soccer club room when Shindou asked where the others were. Hearing that, Shindou wanted to get up but Kirino stopped him, saying that he needed some rest. Shindou stated that he was the captain and Kirino said that he was taking too much responsibility on him. Both Shindou and Kirino later went to their soccer club building, where all the members of the second team and two members of the first team, Mizumori Tatsuya and Kosaka Motonari, left the team due to the events that happened in the morning, leaving the team with only nine members. Afterwards, Shindou, Kirino and Sangoku were passing each other the ball and Kirino asked how many members will be joining the team after what happened. Sangoku replied that it wouldn't be many and Kirino then asked why Shindou said to Tenma and Shinsuke to not join the team. Shindou stated that they wouldn't make any difference if they joined and Kirino sighed at Shindou's response. Later, Tsurugi came and joined Raimon, which surprised everyone and after joining Raimon, Shindou was left no choice to accept him and gave him a Raimon soccer uniform but Tsurugi slapped it away, to which Kirino and the others were angry about.
Because they only had nine members left in the soccer club, Raimon held an entrance exam to find the last two members. Only five students came to the entrance exam and didn't leave much of an impression except for Tenma and Nishizono Shinsuke. Kirino wondered what was wrong with Shindou as he used some harsh plays on Tenma and Shinsuke. Despite failing the entrance exam, Tenma and Shinsuke still passed the exam and the team congratulated them. The next day, the other members introduced themselves to the newcomers and had a training afterwards. Later, Raimon had to play a practice match against Eito and had to lose with 3-0 since that was instructed to them by Fifth Sector. Though after Tenma seeing the team losing on purpose, he couldn't allow it so he kept on getting the ball and passing it to Shindou but he wouldn't get the ball. Kirino asked Tenma to stop but in the end, he passed the ball once more to Shindou and he made a goal which surprised everyone as it was against Fifth Sector's order.
The day after the match, Endou Mamoru came during Raimon's practice and revealed that he became the new coach for Raimon. When Endou asked if everyone was present, Kirino told him that only the captain was absent. Kirino watched Tenma and Shinsuke practicing at the riverside from the bridge but he didn't join them. He went to visit Shindou's house instead to tell Shindou that the new coach that is none other than Endou Mamoru. After telling him the news, the two friends went back to the same bridge that Kirino used to watch the practice earlier and they were surprised that the whole team, except for Minamisawa, decided to join practice after all. Still watching the practice, they were shocked when Tsurugi decided to use Death Sword but Endou dodged the hissatsu by moving his head a little. When Endou gave a speech after practice was over, Shindou moved his eyes away from the field to which Kirino muttered his name with concern. Shindou did come to school the next day but he decided to quit soccer after everything has happened. Kirino and Sangoku tried to talk Shindou out of it but they did with no success.
In episode 14, he is seen well, without the injury on his foot anymore but still isn't able to play soccer for a few days. Then later, he was seen paying a visit at Shindou's house talking about the team.
In episode 17, he revealed a hissatsu of his called The Mist against Teikoku. After that, he passed the ball to Tsurugi but Tsurugi didn't get the ball because he wasn't concentrating. At the end, Raimon won with 3-2.
When Kariya Masaki joined Raimon in episode 21, he and Kirino were paired up to practice. During the match against Akizora Challengers, Kariya pretended to accidentally bump into Ranmaru, where in reality, he was making foul play on purpose. He and Kirino appear to detest each other.
In episode 23, Kariya made up some lies about Kirino stabbing Amagi in the back that Amagi didn't do well in defense. Amagi believed it, and had a short quarrell with Kirino. When Kirino asked if Kariya said anything, Amagi defended Kariya and said that he had nothing to do with it.
At the end of the first half of the match, Endou called Kurumada and Kirino to stay in the bench, leaving only 10 people on the field. The purpose is to let Kirino watch the opponents' tactics better and find the flaw. When Kirino got back on the field, he could finally cooperate with Kariya and make him steal the ball.
In episode 27, he used The Mist, but failed against Seki because of his vicious tackle. Along with Shinsuke, both of them stopped Seki's shot though failed but it was able to lessen the force that will reach the goal, that is why Tenma was able to catch it. In the end, Raimon won the match.
In episode 39, he was worried about Shindou when he was send flying due Taiyou releases his stronger Keshin version. At the end of the match, he is seen talking with Shindou and was about to leave but then Shindou collapsed on the ground, and shocked him.
In episode 40, he and the rest of the team went to the hospital and he was sad about Shindou can't play in finals along with Raimon. Later, he and the rest weren't focused on the training. He was also happy when he saw Coach Endou was back.
In episode 42, he used The Mist to steal the ball to one players of Seidouzan. In the break, he was surprised along with his team to see Dragonlink instead of Seidouzan. In the second half, he caught the missed ball from Dragonlink.
In episode 44, he was seen with all the defenders of Raimon stopping a normal shoot successfully. After that, Kirino passed to Nishiki. At the end of the match, Raimon won the match with the score being 5-4 and was happy about the win and along with the rest of the team, they throw Tenma in the air.
After winning the Holy Road, Raimon was training until Shindou stopped by, fully recovered from his injury. The team, excited to see him, ran towards him and asked him how he was feeling. As Shindou told them that he was doing fine and relieved that real soccer was back, Kirino reminded him to not overdo the training.
Inazuma Eleven GO Chrono Stone
A New Threat
When Tenma came back to Raimon, he searched for his teammates as he wondered where the soccer club was. Kirino was with Ichino Nanasuke in the library and said to Tenma that he wasn't interested in soccer at all, which surprised him.
In episode 3, he appeared alongside with the Raimon soccer team. They had recovered their memories for soccer again but they didn't know who Tsurugi Kyousuke was. He agreed to help Tsurugi Yuuichi, Tenma and Fei Rune to bring back soccer and stop the plans of El Dorado.
In episode 6, he got badly injured by Protocol Omega 2.0. He used Deep Mist but failed against Beta. After the match, the whole Raimon team went back to their timeline. When they arrived, Kirino left the team along with the others who don't have Keshin because they were mind controlled.
He reappeared in episode 18, along with his teammates, after Protocol Omega 2.0 was defeated by Raimon. During practice, he was surprised about Shindou and tried to stop Shindou in his Mixi Max form, but failed because Shindou was too fast. After practice, he was seen having a flashback about him and Shindou in the Raimon second team. The next morning, Kariya said that Kirino was jealous of Shindou. At first, Kirino was reluctant to answer, but afterward, admitted his feelings. After he wasn't chosen for the eleven members, Kariya offered his place to him, by faking a stomach ache.

Inside the castle, he told to Jeanne be confident, otherwise the soldiers will not believe in her. He is later supported by Fei and Kinako, as they said that, in the original story, Jeanne would save France and that she is a heroin, raising up the girl's mood. As one Charles's servants tells to them that only Jeanne would see Charles, he asks to him to leave he went with her, which the first, after some seconds, accepts. As they meet with the false prince, he saw that Jeanne is in doubt and advises her to what she is thinking. Kirino is later shocked as she tells that the one in their front isn't Charles. He is later seen arguing with La Hire since he and Gilles de Rais aren't following Jeanne's commands as was established by Charles VII.
In episode 21, he was seen still worrying about Jeanne and was seen blocking Dhanna with Shindou. Then he had a flashback with Shindou Mixi Max. Orca passed him after that. In the second half, Kirino was been putting as forward. When he received the ball from Hamano, he dribbled towards the opponent's goal. Dhanna used Defense Command 03 and Kirino loosed the ball and his leg was injured due to the fall. He tried to stand up because he thought that it was his fault for losing the ball but if failed. Then Shindou stole the ball and Kirino called his name. Shindou said that he shouldn't worry about it and leave the match to the others. Shindou ran after some opponents and Kirino had a flashback of Kariya telling Kirino that he is jealous on Shindou. Kirino said that Kariya was true and stood up and ran to Shindou. He helped Shindou to block Orca and his Keshin aura was revealed.
Orca passed the ball to Bahamusu and Kirino and Shindou both make a sliding tackle and the ball went out of the line. After that, he helped Shindou to stand up and called Jeanne. He said that he trusted Jeanne. The match resumes and Kirino called out his Keshin, Senkishi Brynhildr and blocked Reiza's Offense Command 04. He was happy when he realized his Keshin and this motivated Jeanne once more. When Protocol Omega 3.0 kicked off, Wonderbot ran to the other side of the field and pointed the Mixi Max Gun on Kinako but she said that Wonderbot should point on Kirino and then he Mixi Maxed Kirino with Jeanne. He then easily stole the ball from Gamma and passed to Tsurugi who used Keshin Armed and scored the first goal. After that, he says that the match rhythm was under their possession and that Raimon would attack with all their forces. Kirino received the ball from Kinako and passed it to Shindou which broke through the defense of Protocol Omega 3.0. Shindou then used Mixi Trans, used Setsuna Boost and scored the second goal. Kirino and Shindou turned both back to normal. Before Raimon departed, Jeanne gave Kirino a candy, which he ate in the Inazuma TM Caravan.

Despite not being chosen, Kirino decided to watch the match between Inazuma Japan and Teikoku Gakuen and wished Shindou good luck for the match. However, when he saw Inazuma Japan's plays, he wondered why they were chosen for Inazuma Japan instead of him and was sad to see that this was Inazuma Japan when the match ended with Inazuma Japan's lose.
