Volleyball Club Edit
The Boys' Volleyball Club banner reads "Simplicity and Fortitude" in accordance with the team's former playing style. Terushima has said that Johzenji defeated Shiratorizawa once in the past. In recent years, however, the team became average, having decent defensive ability but lacking offensively.
One year prior to the series' current time period, Johzenji's dynamic completely changed under new leadership and with the addition of the current 2nd years. With the intent of "rebuilding the team from the ground up", the new coach Anabara had its members practice through two-on-two matches against one another. During the next year's Interhigh Preliminaries, not only did the team consist of five 2nd years and two 3rd years, but they made it into the top 4.
It is often referred to as the "party team" by other opponents due to the players' easy-going attitude and lack of formation. Karasuno has noted that Johzenji is unorthodox and unpredictable. The players often set up attacks from the back line, save shots with their legs, randomly change positions, or even attempt to copy their opponents' tactics. Johzenji is very adaptable and the players are usually able to keep the rhythm up throughout the match, making them quite formidable opponents.
