Shōhei Fukunaga (Japanese: 福永招平 Fukunaga Shōhei) is a second year student from Nekoma High. He is one of the boys' volleyball team's wing spikers.

AppearanceEdit

Fukunaga has wide, cat-like eyes with small pupils. He has small eyebrows and short black hair. His skin is extremely pale. On multiple occasions he's shown with his hands in the air, not unlike a manekineko.

PersonalityEdit

Although he's a regular, he doesn't speak often. He has a few lines in the manga, and says "Yes" and "Okay" in anime. During his first year, he stopped a fight between Yamamoto and Kenma, by throwing a bucket of water over them to prevent the situation from escalating. This act caused Fukunaga to receive a lot of praise from his upperclassmen, and the respect of his fellow first years. He's fond of comedy and often thinks up of funny things to say but never tells anyone else so instead just laughs covertly to himself.

Despite not having many of his abilities shown, he is seen to have efficient receiving skills like the rest of his team. According to Nobuyuki Kai, he has the ability to manipulate the trajectory of the ball for each spike he makes, even controlling its trajectory precisely enough to force it to land right directly on the back line of the court.
