Background

Plot

Spring High Preliminary Arc

Futamata is introduced as the setter for Johzenji in the match against Karasuno High. During the match’s beginning, Futamata is able to save a ball going into the net with his foot and leads way for Īzaka to spike. After this, Futamata and his team are seen cheering for their victory. Shortly after, Futamata and Īzaka perform a quick set, and one spectator remarks that despite their wild style, they can still manage regular plays. In the following rally, Futamata does a let serve, which seems to be about to score, until Tanaka saves it in a hurry. Shortly after, Futamata does a one-handed set to toss to Numajiri. In another rally, Futamata does a setter dump that tricks Tsukishima. Futamata and Higashiyama would also bump into each other when a ball comes their way, which is explained by their habit to play 2-on-2 games.

Shortly after, Tsukishima remarks that Futamata, as Johzenji’s setter, and dismisses him as a possible hitter. However, he is proven wrong when Futamata calls for Higashiyama to set for him. Futamata follows up by spiking past Tanaka and successfully scores. Futamata would once more surprise Karasuno when Kageyama seems to be going for a setter dump but instead spikes, however, the rookie setter instead blocks with his face. As the first set approaches its end, Futamata is the center of Johzenji’s attempted synchro attack. Despite their attempt, Futamata and Terushima’s teamwork fall flat and they lose the first set.

During the second set, Futamata jumps up to spike only after the second contact on Johzenji’s side, which surprises Karasuno’s own setter, Sugawara. Despite the surprising attempt, he scores out of bounds, which makes it clear for the spectators that Johzenji is starting to panic. When Misaki uses foul language to lecture the team, Futamata starts murmur in the team. After this, Futamata seems like he’s going to spike on the second contact again but instead sets from behind to Terushima, which even surprises the captain.

The next day, after Johzenji’s loss, Futamata admits he admired Kageyama’s skills during the game but also agrees that Daichi's captaincy had been a big part of Karasuno’s foundation.

Nationals

Near the end of the match between Karasuno and Kamomedai, Futamata is shown watching the match with Terushima and Bobata. They are shown to be highly impressed when Daichi was able to save the ball using his foot[1].
