Wei Liu (劉 偉 Liu Wei) is an exchange student from China and a second year small forward at Yōsen High.


Liu is abnormally tall. He has a long face, very narrow eyes and thin eyebrows. Liu's light brown hair covers both his forehead and the back of his neck but leaves both his eyes clearly visible. Liu is most often seen with an expression of mild distaste on his face. His Yosen jersey number is 11.


Liu is rather apathetic, having a very unremarkable and rather dull personality. It can been noted that Liu speaks in a very formal and old-fashioned style of a stereotypical Chinese character, similar to "thee/thou" instead of "you" by saying アル(aru). Fukui "taught" Liu this way of speaking as a prank, telling him it was a popular way of speaking.


Winter Cup

Liu is present with his teammates when Alex excitedly greets Himuro, who then asks for a minute to go talk with her. This leaves the entire team stunned, except for Liu, who is at most shown to be amused, whereas Fukui and Okamura blush at the sight of Alexandra. When Yosen's captain, Okamura starts crying about his lack of popularity, vice-captain Fukui bluntly tells him that no matter what he does he won't be popular. Liu adds by suggesting he change his hair and chin, much to Okamura's despair.
