RelationshipsEdit

Tobio KageyamaEdit

Chigaya believes he and Kageyama are close friends due to attending the youth training camp, having eaten lunch together, and exchanging few conversations. He even brags to his teammate Daiki Ogano that he and Kageyama are best friends. However, he is unsure when Ogano questions if Kageyama even knows his name, indicating that they are not as close as he claims.[3]
