I want to show my abilities. This desire is too strong. Although I know that the current Shiratorizawa does not need such a setter, this desire is uncontainable. But when I'm serving, I am free.

Official coloured Semi Eita

AppearanceEdit

Semi has thick and messy ash blonde hair with dark tips. His eyebrows are black, contrasting his hair. His eyes are sharply shaped and brown, and he's usually seen with a small scowl on his face. He has a relatively large build.

PersonalityEdit

He appears serious and stoic, but is actually hot-headed and competitive, partially also towards Shirabu who had taken his spot as the team's starting setter. Despite that, Semi does acknowledge Shirabu's and his opponents' strengths and abilities. He also does care about his teammates and is sincere and nice at times.

BackgroundEdit

Like most members of Shiratorizawa Boys' Volleyball Team, Semi got into the school through a sports scholarship. He was a famous setter during his time at middle school and the main setter for Shiratorizawa before being replaced by Shirabu[1].

PlotEdit

Interhigh ArcEdit

Shiratorizawa wins against Ougiminami (2:0 / 25-10, 25-6) and then goes on to face off against Aobajōsai for the last match. Shiratorizawa wins the finals as well[2].

Spring High Preliminary ArcEdit

Shiratorizawa plays against Karasuno in the finals of the Spring High. During a timeout in the second set[1], Semi calls Shirabu from the side and advises him to carefully think of how to support Ushijima, but Shirabu brushes him off, which annoys the third year. The game soon resumes and Shirabu suddenly performs a dump shot, shocking the entire gymnasium. Semi quietly admits that Shirabu actually isn't that bad.

Nearing Karasuno's set point[3], Semi is switched in for Tendō as a pinch server. Asahi receives his serve and then sends it to Daichi. His spike gets blocked and Shirabu passes the ball to Semi. He sets it to Goshiki, who scores and leads Shiratorizawa to its set point. Semi serves again, but it's received by Daichi this time. Afterwards, as Semi is being switched out, he states with irritation that Karasuno's setter is really audacious.

Semi is switched in as a pinch server nearing the end of the fifth set[4]. He thinks to himself about how Shiratorizawa needs a setter with Shirabu's abilities rather than his own, but how, as a server, he has no restrictions. He serves and scores a service ace right away. The subsequent attempts are received, but they throw Karasuno out of sync, leaving the members scrambling to fix the formation.

Shiratorizawa loses to Karasuno in the end[5]. After lining up and coach Washijō telling them that a meeting and a hundred serves would be waiting for them later, Semi grimaces in what might be frustration, or resignation.

Some time later, after practice, the third years gather the underclassmen up for a farewell speech[6]. Semi watches Ushijima prepare the rest of the team for next year with words of motivation and advice before the upperclassmen retire from the club.

Semi is a steady and reliable setter, and he is skilled enough to have been the main setter for Shiratorizawa in either his first or second year. He is physically stronger than Shirabu, but doesn't play as safely, which may be a reason why he had to concede his position to the second year.

Nonetheless, his serves are powerful and quick which makes him valuable as a pinch server.

RelationshipsEdit

Kenjirō Shirabu Edit

It has been shown that Semi harbors a strong dislike towards Shirabu's dismissive and disrespectful behavior, particularly when he gave him advice in the match against Karasuno. However, Semi does acknowledge Shirabu's skills and, in contrast, the areas where he himself is lacking in regards to Shiratorizawa's way of playing.

Satori Tendō Edit

Semi and Tendō have a banter-based friendship. Tendō has teased Semi about his fashion sense in the past while Semi is critical of his forwardness. Despite this, the two of them keep each other in check when either gets too unruly.

Shiratorizawa AcademyEdit

Semi gets along well with his teammates, especially the third years. He has been shown to eat lunch with Ushijima, Reon, and Tendō, and converses with them regularly about topics unrelated to volleyball. Out of everyone on the team, Semi appears to be closest to Reon. He uses first names with Ushijima, Reon, and Goshiki.

QuotesEdit

  • "I know where I am weaker than Shirabu. I want to rely on my own strength to avoid the blockers. I want to show my abilities. This desire is too strong. Although I know that the current Shiratorizawa does not need such a setter, this desire is uncontainable. But when I'm serving, I am free." (Chapter 181)
