Appearance

Kaikake has short dark hair, which is slightly spiky. Additionally, he has short bits of hair covering his headband.

Personality

Not much is known about Kaikake's personality, but he seems to be a somewhat laid back person since he was hesitant to receive Yamaguchi's serve.

Background

Kaikake currently attends Tsubakihara Academy, located in Kanagawa Prefecture in the region of Kantō.

Plot

Tokyo Nationals Arc

During the match, Yamaguchi serves, aiming at Teradomari, but fails and instead gets to where Maiko and Kaikake are. Maiko tries to receive it, but it ends up messy since he hesitated. After this, Osado scowls at them for taking so much time[1]. As the match progresses, Kinoshita is sent in as Karasuno’s pinch server and not long after Tsubakibara does the same, benching Iwamuro for Himekawa. In the distance, Kaikake is seen supporting his teammate.

During Himekawa’s first serve he messes up and hits Teradomari's head but when serves once more, he manages to score two service aces in a row, and at his third serve, he is still able to put up a good defense. During this, Tsubakihara gloriously congratulates Himekawa for his success, which puts their hopes up to win. After Tsubakihara’s loss, Echigo shakes Daichi's hand, as they are the two opposing team’s captains, and Maruyama, Echigo, and Teradomari break into tears. Right after, Osado tries to comfort his team by offering them lunch.
