Appearance

He has a light-colored buzzcut and large, brown eyes with thick eyebrows. He's also quite tall and has an athletic build.

Personality

Not much is known about Seguro’s personality, but he appears to be a loyal teammate and seemingly has no objections towards his team’s methods.

Background

Seguro currently attends Nohebi Academy, located in Tokyo Prefecture in the region of Honshū.

Plot

Spring High Preliminary Arc

During Nohebi’s match against Nekoma, Seguro does not seem to join in his teammates' taunts, since most of them come from the team’s third years, but he does play along with their goody-two-shoes act. As the match progresses, Yaku injures his foot, and gets replaced by Shibayama. Seguro tries to block Kuroo but fails.[1]

Right after Fukunaga scores against Nohebi, Numai yells at them to grab them a ticket to nationals no matter whatever it takes, and his team gets more motivated to win. Seguro’s reaction is the only one who is not shown.[2]

Nearing the end of the match, Seguro jumps up to block Kuroo, but the blocker ends up jumping later than Seguro and spikes the ball, earning Nekoma a point.
