Shy Hinata (Japanese: Hinata Shy) is the main character in Haruichi Furudate’s Haiky!! series. Hinata was inspired to start playing volleyball after seeing a Karasuno High volleyball player known as the Little Giant score points against much larger opponents. Hinata enrolled at Karasuno High after losing his first official volleyball match in middle school to Tobio Kageyama, the “King of the Court,” only to discover that Kageyama had also decided to come to Karasuno. Hinata was a first-year student at Karasuno and a middle blocker for the volleyball team for the majority of the series. He went to Brazil for two years after graduating from high school to train in beach volleyball. He joined the MSBY Black Jackals, a Division 1 team in the V-League, after returning to Japan. During the 2021 Olympics, he was a member of Japan’s national team, and in 2022, he joined Asas S Paulo, a professional team in the Brazilian Super League. He is Natsu Hinata’s older brother.
Hinata was 162.8 cm tall when she started high school and grew to 164.2 cm by the halfway point of the year. Next to Nishinoya, he is the shortest member of his squad (although this height is fairly average for a male Japanese High School student). His orange hair is unruly, and he has brown eyes. Because of his slim build and short height, he is often mistaken for a junior high (or even elementary school) student. Hinata wears his Karasuno school uniform, which consists of a black jacket and black trousers. A beige or tan sweatshirt sits under his jacket. He wore his junior high green volleyball uniform in the first episode.
Hinata wears his volleyball uniform during games, which consists of a black jersey and matching shorts with white and orange stripes on the legs. His place number 10 (coincidentally, the same number as the Small Giant) and his school’s name written in kanji are on the back of his jersey. He wears kneepads and white volleyball shoes with red stripes on the court.

Hinata has a bright and vivacious disposition. He is easily excited and can be very noisy, second only to Nishinoya and Tanaka in terms of this characteristic. For the most part, Hinata is very simple-minded which sometimes causes him to make rash decisions. He is, however, shown to be a keen observer. He can read social cues and is extremely sympathetic to other people’s problems. As a result, he always tells exactly what people need to know in order to motivate them. He’s also known for being a natural schmoozer, a trait that his teammates use to win people over on occasion (Nishinoya, for example). Kenma from Nekoma High and Aone from Date Tech High, for example, benefit from his polite and direct attitude, which helps him to easily befriend even the quietest of people.
Despite his usually upbeat demeanor, Hinata is seen to have a serious side, particularly when it comes to volleyball. His unwavering commitment to the sport is evident in his admirable show of tenacity, which stems from his relentless drive to develop his skills. Hinata, according to Sugawara, “plays with tremendous fortitude in the face of difficulty” and “doesn’t give up easily during a game.” When people misunderstand Hinata, he can also display a very threatening voice. Even so, Hinata is easily frightened, particularly by larger and stronger opponents. As a result, he develops the habit of hiding behind his teammate who is closest to him. He easily recovers, however, and challenges their rivals with confidence.
Hinata is quickly agitated before a match at first due to his lack of experience. He is so nervous that he gets a bad stomach or has to go to the bathroom all the time. He becomes sloppy as well, as he often messes up his spikes or gets. Hinata is so affected by Karasuno’s first practice match against Aoba Johsai High that he mistook Daichi and Kiyoko’s attempts to console him as further strain and short-circuited. Since royally screwing up and driving a serve into the back of Kageyama’s head, he just survives. Hinata improves her ability to handle pressure over time. While she is still faint-hearted, Hinata has a much milder reaction and can do well during the test.
Hinata improves her ability to handle pressure over time.
And if she is still faint-hearted, Hinata has a much milder reaction and can still do well in tournaments. Hinata, like Kageyama, struggles in school due to his obsession with volleyball. He once told Sugawara that he had never scored in the double digits on any of his exams since entering high school.
