Kaori Suzumeda (Japanese: 雀田 (すずめだ) かおり Suzumeda Kaori) is a third-year student at Fukurōdani Academy. She is one of the team managers for the boys' volleyball team.

As of 2018, she became a sports promoter in Tokyo.


Suzumeda is shown to have tan-colored hair that's usually tied up into a ponytail, grey-blue eyes, and freckles located on her cheeks and nasal bridge. She is also shown to be a bit taller than Yukie.

For the majority of the training camp arc, she is often seen wearing a dark blue t-shirt and white track pants. But during the barbecue, she, along with Yukie, are seen wearing sky blue tops with light grey colored sweatpants.

Post-timeskip, Suzumeda's biggest physical change is that her hair is now much shorter.


Kaori is a very kind, positive girl, and is often seen smiling. During the summer training camps at Nekoma High and Shinzen High, she can be seen with all the girls from all the schools, laughing and talking about their teams[1].


Tokyo Expedition Arc

Suzumeda is introduced as one of Fukurōdani's managers. She is often seen along with Yukie Shirofuku as they carry out their managerial tasks, at one point they inform Hinata and the others to hurry with their practice as the cafeteria was closing soon. After Fukurōdani's last match against Karasuno, Tsukishima overhears Suzumeda mention how Bokuto's simple minded behavior is the reason that he is not ranked as one of the top three ace's in the nation[2]. During the barbeque, she helps get things prepared for the meal and afterwards is seen spending time with the other managers.

Tokyo Nationals Arc

Fukurōdani Academy vs Mujinazaka High

Kaori is the manager helping during the game. When Akaashi is subbed out to calm himself, she and their coach are confused by some of the statements that Akaashi makes but are later relieved when he was able to go back into the game after calming his nerves.

Final Arc

Suzumeda currently works as a sports promoter in Tokyo. She and Yukie appear to still be good friends and watch Bokuto's game on the MSBY Black Jackals on a laptop[3].

Yukie and Kaori are both managers on Fukurōdani's Volleyball Team and are pretty close friends. They are mostly seen talking to each other or cheering on for their team. They remain friends after the timeskip and watch the the Jackals v. Adlers game together.

Kōtarō Bokuto

Similar to the team, she is able to tell when Bokuto's mood is about to change and helps in trying to get the ace in a better mood when this happens. Suzumeda recognizes his skills as one of the top ace players in the country but often pokes fun at his childish antics and simplemindedness.
