01. Shoyo Hinata

  • Position: Middle Blocker
  • Voice actor: Ayumu Murase

Shoyo is the main character in Haikyuu!! and is an example of typical characters who, despite setbacks, never stop working after their dreams and ambitions. And it makes them go-getter champions!

In Haikyuu!!, Shoyo is a member of the Karasuno High School volleyball team, and besides his short size, he is an excellent player who reaffirms the Karasuno Volleyball team’s fallen honor.

He is famous for his vertical jump which baits the opposing team and provides Karasuno attackers an opportunity to strike. As a result, Hinata has earned the nickname “the greatest decoy.”

02. Tobio Kageyama

Tobio Kageyama is known by many names – “the king of the court”, “volleyball genius”, and so on. Kageyama is a type of character who struggles with socializing and is inconsiderate of the feelings of his team members.

Kageyama was initially portrayed as a mean and selfish prodigy, not favored by the team due to his ill behavior, and was dropped from his previous Volleyball team. As a result, Kageyama has now become more considerate of the opinions of others.

Moreover, there is huge character development as we see Kageyama learn the significance of teamwork, reliance, and companionship. He develops a setter-blocker partnership with Hinata and is referred to as a “quick freak.”

03. Daichi Sawamura

Daichi Sawamura is a kind, tough, and dependable third-year student at Karasuno High School. He is a responsible captain who inspires his teammates on and off the court.
