Minoru Nakashima (Japanese: 中島実 Nakashima Minoru) is the fourth child of the Nakashima family. The Nakashima family often attends Takeru's matches and has grown to be known as Wakutani South's famous "cheering squad family".


He has unruly reddish-brown hair, straight, thin eyebrows, and a medium build for his age.


Like his sister, Makoto, he had a lot of energy as a child.


As a child, he would often play with his sister and older brother, Takeru. He would often use him as a horse.


Spring High Preliminary ArcEdit

He is first seen during the Karasuno High vs. Wakutani South High match with two megaphone cones hanging off his shoulder. After the match ends, he and the rest of his family applaud the Wakutani South players for their performance[1].


Takeru NakashimaEdit

Takeru was responsible for taking care of Minoru when he was younger, though Minoru's incessant energy usually wore his brother out.


  • He and his family appear in Kiben Gakuha, Yotsuya Senpai no Kaidan (where his sister is one of the main characters).
