Weight: 84.8 kg

Wakatoshi Ushijima is a 3rd-year student at Shiratorizawa Academy. Unlike many aces who play as a Wing Spiker, Ushijima plays as an Opposite Hitter. This due to the fact that he is left-handed and is much stronger on the ball through this position. Most receivers have a tough time copying to his spikes as his spike’s spin is different. This leads to the ball being wrongly received thus bouncing off at an off-angle.

He is known as the strongest spiker in Haikyuu as one might even need hands of steel to pick his incoming spikes. Being the captain of Shiratorizawa, he is quite stoic in nature criticizing friends and foes bluntly.

Kiryuu is considered a better all-rounded player than Ushijima. This was due to his powerful legs that would help him in having efficient receives thus making him an excellent passer of the ball. Moreover, his jump serves are devastating too and one to look out for.

He is said to be one of the best receivers of the game while his attacks are the most hated. He has ultra-flexible wrists enabling him to turn his wrist all the way around. So, people speculate it to be the reason for his spikes being hated but in fact, it is the spin he adds to the ball that makes it difficult for the receivers.
