PlotEdit

Interhigh ArcEdit

Sakunami is first seen in the first match between Datekou and Karasuno High, where he plays as the team's libero.

Spring High Preliminary ArcEdit

Later on, he appears as a spectator at the Karasuno vs Johzenji High match along with Futakuchi, Aone and Obara and gives insight into how Johzenji trains, saying that the volleyball club always spends more than half of each practice session playing 2-on-2 games. On that same page, he says he has a friend on the Johzenji High basketball team, which is how he knows this.

In the Spring Tournament, he plays with Datekou against Aobajohsai High in the quarterfinals, with the role of "steering" Koganegawa.

Kanji Koganegawa Edit

In a flashback during the Datekou vs Aobajousai match, the coach told Sakunami that he would need to "steer" Koganegawa due to the latter's lack of technique. Sakunami is seen putting this into practice during the match, and it is also confirmed that they are in the same class, 1-A.
