Appearance

Hondo is the second shortest Mujinazaka player, standing at 5’10.6, being taller than Bishin, the team’s libero. Despite this, he is still very tall. He has dark, wavy but neat hair and often wears a confident smile on his face.

Personality

Not much is known about Hondo’s personality but he’s seen to be someone who gets along with his teammates. He is often seen with Ezota, as the two are both wing spikers.

Plot

Tokyo Nationals Arc

When Bokuto announces the whole stadium that Fukurodani is going to win because he’s going to win before their match is going to start, everyone is confused, and Hondo suggests that maybe he means that he’s going to be the number once ace. [1]

After the game between Mujinazaka and Fukurodani starts, Onaga is about to spike the ball to the opposing side but Unnan, Ezota, and Hondo all reacting right away, and Unnan is able to stuff it, gaining his team a point right away.

After Bokuto gets fired up, he scores multiple points in a row, seeming unstoppable. However, during one of Bokuto’s second sevre, Ezota is able to bump the ball to Hondo. And near the end of the match, Bokuto serves at full force but isn’t able to produce a service ace since Ezota is able to bump it to Hondo, just like in the second set, who then reaches Kiryu. Hondo is not shown after Mujinazaka's loss to Fukurodani.
