Preparation for Nationals Edit
Komori is invited to the All-Japan Youth Intensive Training Camp. He is on Kageyama's team during a practice game and encourages him when he makes a mistake. Later, at lunch, he appears while Sakusa is interrogating Kageyama about how Karasuno beat Shiratorizawa and tells Kageyama to ignore him, commenting that Sakusa can be "a real downer." He explains the reasons behind Sakusa's behavior and apologizes for the intrusion as they part ways.
Later, during another practice game, Komori notes Kageyama's ability to calmly respond to and deliver on spikers' requests and calls it "terrifying." He's also vocally impressed by Hoshiumi's jumping ability. In the last practice game, where the players switch up positions, Komori plays as a wing spiker. When he leaves the camp, he waves goodbye to Kageyama with a smile.
Komori greets Kageyama at nationals and when Kageyama asks if Sakusa is with him, he points out Sakusa in the corner, avoiding the crowd.
Komori was invited to the All-Japan Youth Intensive Training Camp, so he must be a very skilled player. He has also been featured in Volleyball Monthly as the #1 high school libero.
Komori is on the same team as Sakusa and often teases him about how cautious he is, calling him "a real downer" and commenting that a lot of the time he's imagining his physical ailments. However, Komori also admits that he thinks it's not bad to be cautious about these kinds of things, and he clearly understands Sakusa very well, suggesting that they are close.
