Issei Matsukawa (Japanese: 松川一静 Matsukawa Issei) is a 3rd year student in Class 1 from Aobajōsai High; he is one of the middle blockers.

Appearance Edit

Matsukawa is shown to have messy black hair and thick eyebrows. His mouth is usually shown as having his upper lip more pronounced than most characters. He is the tallest of the third-year volleyball players of Seijō, and is a good height for volleyball.

Personality Edit

Although serious looking, Matsukawa is shown to sometimes carry a joking air, such as calling out his food orders in the middle of a match.

Statistics Edit

Original Statistics
Game Sense

He seems to be overall good at spiking, receiving, and blocking.

When blocking, it's been shown that he can pressure his opponents to force the path of a spike.

Relationships Edit

Tōru Oikawa Edit

Like the other Aobajōsai 3rd years, he tends to pick fun at Oikawa. However, he does have a deep respect for his captain.

Takahiro Hanamaki Edit

The two seem to be close friends, even among the four tight-knit third years of Seijō. They often join in or enjoy spectating Oikawa's mocking antics towards Iwaizumi, or tease Oikawa as well. Though both are of few words, they appear to be close with the other members of their team.

Trivia  Edit
