Shoyo Hinata is the first year spiker of Karasuno High School. His love for the sport grew when he saw the “small giant” play on TV in the National Championships. He aims to follow in his idol’s footsteps as being a well-renowned spiker despite being remarkably short. He is generally upbeat, clumsy and weak, not to mention very short for a sport like volleyball, however he compensates for his shortcomings with his extraordinary jumping ability. With the help of Kageyama, Shoyo manages to use his size to his advantage and become Karasuno’s biggest decoy.
