Standing at 176.3 cm, Moniwa has a considerably small build for a volleyball player. He has short curly black hair (Dark brown in the manga), thick eyebrows and wide eyes with small black cat-like pupils.
Though he was the captain of Date Tech, he wasn't stern with his teammates, and often had to rely on help from other members to control the juniors (an example being when he required Futakuchi's assistance to stop Aone when the latter points at Karasuno's ace). He usually became embarrassed instead of angry at the juniors' behavior and is generally somewhat of a timid person. However, whenever his team is losing in a match, he would encourage them and boost their confidence.
