He doesn't seem to put much effort into his playing and sometimes accidentally lets a ball in; however, since he's a starting member in Shiratorizawa, his abilities shouldn't be too low. Tendō has noted that Kawanishi has an eclectic and more analytical blocking style, which the third year's a little annoyed by; Kawanishi would use guess blocking on occasions and switch back to read blocking when needed. He also won't fight any uncertain battles.

By National Finals, he became an unpredictable and accurate server, being able to serve at corners and the next one clipping over the net, where both being service aces, but it also has to do with Karasuno players being overwhelmed by the occasion.
