Aran Ojiro (Japanese: 尾白 (おじろ) アラン Ojiro Aran) was a third-year student at Inarizaki High School and one of the volleyball team's wing spikers. He was one of the top aces in Japan, and filled that role in his team. Much like Kōtarō Bokuto, he was just outside of being in the country's top 3. It has been noted that if he were even in reasonably good condition, he would probably make the cut. 

As of November 2018, he is an outside hitter for the Tachibana Red Falcons, a professional volleyball team in Division 1 of Japan's V-League.

Appearance Edit

Aran has a dark-brown clean-cut and thick eyebrows. He's fairly tall and has a muscular, athletic build.  His eyes are almond shaped and have fox like pupils; In the manga, his eyes are colored gold/brown and in the anime they're a grey-ish green. 

Personality Edit

Aran is shown to be a mature, third-year student. He is in class five, so it can be assumed that he is rather intelligent. On occasions, he seems rather put off by the Miya twins' rude and obnoxious behavior, but other than that, he has been shown to have a strong connection with all of his teammates.

Background Edit

Around fifth grade, Aran took part in a volleyball workshop where he first met the Miya brothers, Osamu and Atsumu, who were both fourth-graders at that time.
