Kazuhito Narita (Japanese: 成田 一仁 Narita Kazuhito) is a 2nd year at Karasuno High. He is one of the team's middle blockers.

Appearance Edit

Like Tanaka, he has a shaved head except his hair appears much darker and doesn't have a widow's peak. He is also tall and has a lean build. He has wide brown eyes, and narrow eyebrows that match his hair color.

Personality Edit

Background Edit

During their first year of high school, Kazuhito, together with Ennoshita and Hisashi, leaves the volleyball team as they are unable to keep up with Ukai Sr.'s harsh training methods. 

They come back after they hear about Ukai Sr.'s hospitalization and regret their decision, starting to call themselves "The Ungrateful Second Years."  

PlotEdit

Karasuno High Team Formation ArcEdit

Interhigh ArcEdit

Tokyo Expedition ArcEdit

Along with the rest of the team, Narita takes part in a series of training camp with Nekoma High, Ubugawa High, Shinzen High, and Fukurōdani Academy.

Spring High Preliminary ArcEdit

He isn't a regular on the team. He's seen watching or cheering on the bench during games in the background. However, he finally plays in an official match during the Johzenji High match as replacement for Hinata, who was benched following Kageyama's injury.[1]

During the match with Johzenji High, it's shown that Narita can spike at a normal level and is compatible with Sugawara. In the Tokyo Expedition Arc's final match against Shiratorizawa, Narita is subbed in for Kei Tsukishima as he has a cut on his right little finger. Given Kageyama rarely worked with him before, Narita barely makes contact on his first spike with his fingertips.

As of mid-November:

  • Fingertip Height: 237 cm
  • Jumping Reach: 322 cm (spike) / 305 cm (block)

RelationshipsEdit

He appears to be good friends with Ennoshita and Kinoshita, and is often seen with them during practices or games. He's never seen without either of them.

TriviaEdit

  • On Haikyuu's official website he is not listed in the character files but he is an official member of Karasuno's team and has gone to every tournament.
  • In the anime, his jersey number is switched from 8 to 7 during the Interhigh Preliminaries matches against Datekou and against Aobajohsai. In the second season, his jersey number is switched back to 8. It is not known whether or not this was an animation error or done on purpose.
  • His star sign is Leo.
  • When asked about Narita's name, Furudate said, “I named him this way because it sounds oldest-son-ish and because I personally like the character 仁 (virtue).”[2]
  • Nomenclature:
    • Narita (成田): From 成 (nari) meaning "become", and 田 (ta) meaning "rice paddy".
