Spring High Preliminary Arc
Shiratorizawa vs Karasuno
Shiratorizawa faces Karasuno in the finals. During warmups, Reon catches a stray ball and hands it to Hinata when he had chased after it. Tendō points out that Hinata probably realized his resemblance to Benkei and nicknamed him as such, but Reon replies that he doesn’t see the similarity.
The match starts and Shiratorizawa gains the lead right away as the players of Karasuno are riddled with nerves until Sugawara loudly yells at his teammates to calm down. After Hinata eventually rotates onto the court, Reon makes a receive of Sugawara's serve, proving to Karasuno that Shiratorizawa tries to prevent Ushijima from making any serve receives so he can always be ready to attack. Near the end of the second set, Shirabu set to Reon under the speculation that he does not want to tire Ushijima. Still, Reon silently apologizes to the audience as he felt they wanted to see the ace attack again. With Tsukishima leading the block, Reon performs a feint shot. Although Daichi is able to save the ball, it heads directly back to the net where Tendō scores with a direct spike.
In the fourth set, Karasuno is able to get ahead at 2-0. Goshiki becomes the target of Washijō's scolding again which causes the first year to become nervous. However, Reon is able to help Goshiki understand that Washijō is not doing this because he was playing poorly, but that he is in fact counting on the younger wing spiker the most. For majority of the set, Reon is mostly seen trying land several spikes.
In the fifth set after Hinata is able to make an incredible receive of Ushijima's spike that cuts off Semi's serves, Reon notices that Ushijima appears upset that Hinata is being moved to the back row. When Goshiki starts to become undone after several of Yamaguchi's float serves, Reon watches as Ushijima is able to help Goshiki ease his nerves and get back on track. Reon smiles, seeing that this is the work of the grand ace helping the upcoming ace.
Later, as each team continues to reach match point and Ushijima is able to use such a perfected form that he appears to just hang in the air, Reon acknowledges that many believe that Ushijima is one to not ever appear to tire out or feel the pressure of any situation. While he admits that this is true to a certain point, he sees Ushijima as simply being crazy about volleyball. Karasuno eventually goes on to win the match. As the team is walking off the court, Reon notices how quiet Shirabu has gotten. He asks the setter if he is alright. Shirabu answers that he is surprised that Shiratorizawa lost, as he wholly believed that they would be victorious again. Reon admits that he too thought that they would not lose the game before he and the others begin to cry. Afterwards, the team returned to the school. Reon and the other third years retire after Ushijima offered final words of advice to the remaining members of the team.
After graduating, Reon has become an employee for a sporting goods company and a player for a Div. 3 team called the Kiniro Sports Jumpers. He and Semi attend the match between the Schweiden Adlers and MSBY Black Jackals together. There they reunite with Washijō and show great support for Ushijima.
