Rintarō Suna (Japanese: 角名 (すな) 倫太郎 (りんたろう) Suna Rintarō) is a second year student at Inarizaki High School and the volleyball team's middle blocker.

AppearanceEdit

Suna has black, slightly-combed down hair, with few strands sticking out at the top of his head, and bangs that is both swept to the left and right. He also appears to have droopy eyes, and is often seen wearing a blank expression.

PersonalityEdit

Suna appears to be a deadpan, quiet person. He tends to slack off when his team has a huge point lead and it seems to be winning the game. He’s more expressive with his thoughts, wishing he could find a reason to poke fun at Kita or making snarky remakes against Tsukishima and Tanaka. He's also quite analytical, being able to manipulate the opposing blockers and figuring out that Tsuikishima was baiting him to shoot around his block.

Although he is considered short for a middle blocker, Suna is a very formidable player with incredible instincts and game sense.[1] He is shown to be a capable blocker that can think, similar to Tsukishima, but his most notable trait is his ability to utilize his torso when he spikes. This makes him one of Inarizaki's top scorers along with ace, Aran. However, he is noted to be a slow starter and have a tendency to slack off when his team gains a comfortable lead.

Skills:Edit

  • Sharp Game Sense: According to Coach Ukai, Suna possesses a sharp instinct, akin to a sixth sense for the game. He is able to quickly adapt to the opposing team's pace to put up an effective defense. During the match against Karasuno, he reacts almost immediately to Kageyama's toss to shut down Tanaka's spike.[2]
  • Wide-Range Spike: Suna's strong suit is the incredible breadth of his spiking range. In addition to using his shoulders, he is capable of rotating his entire upper torso while spiking to increase his range, all the while retaining spiking power.[3] He would use his approach run and body direction to manipulate the blockers into guarding one direction before he attacks to different angle.
