Tsutomu Goshiki (Japanese: 五色工 Goshiki Tsutomu) is a first year wing spiker in Shiratorizawa Academy.

AppearanceEdit

He has black-colored hair (specifically, a bowl cut), dark brown eyes, and a medium build.

PersonalityEdit

He is hardworking, ambitious, and enjoys showing off. Every time he pulls off a good move, he looks around in excitement, wondering if anyone saw him (and occasionally being told off by Shirabu). Goshiki responds to things his teammates say enthusiastically even if he doesn't understand what's being said to him (as seen with his coach, who speaks the Miyagi dialect). He greatly admires Ushijima and dreams of becoming a better ace player than him, which is sometimes made the subject of jokes by his teammates (much to his chagrin).

BackgroundEdit

PlotEdit

Spring High Preliminary ArcEdit

In the anime[1], he appears right as the Spring High begins. In the manga, he doesn't appear until the Shiratorizawa vs Karasuno match.

According to himself, his most powerful weapon is his "super straight" spike.

He seems to be proficient at receiving, but is rather poor at blocking as he has few calls against him for touching the net.

He has a strong jump serve that can put pressure on the opposing team. Though he can generally hit his target well, he is not above committing foot faults, where his front foot steps on the baseline.[2]

He has shown the ability to manipulate the power placed into his jump serves, such that it lands shorter than expected to surprise the opponent team.

His game sense is slightly above average. But can be poor at leaving shots for spikes heading out of bounds, and touching the net for blocking.

RelationshipsEdit

Kenjirō ShirabuEdit

The two don't get along that well. Every time Goshiki gets overly excited, Shirabu would insult him. But in court, they seem to get along in a unique way. Shirabu trusts the ball to Goshiki (even if he won't admit it or he won't even notice), throwing it to him with zero hesitation if Ushijima wasn't the one to get it.

Wakatoshi UshijimaEdit

Goshiki aims to become the next ace–and a better one than Ushijima. He has challenged Ushijima before but the latter doesn't see Goshiki as a real threat, which annoys the first year. Despite the one-sided rivalry, Goshiki looks up to and respects Ushijima's incredible prowess as a volleyball player. Ushijima appears to consider Goshiki a competent player, as was demonstrated by his brief straightforward encouragement of the first year after he lost multiple consecutive points and became flustered. Following Shiratorizawa's defeat by Karasuno, Ushijima addresses each of the team's underclassmen to provide them advice on self-improvement, including Goshiki. He acknowledges Goshiki with a simple "I'm counting on you," which moves the impassioned first year to tears.Goshiki also gets scolded by Ushijima when he made mental mistakes in the final set of the Tokyo Expedition Arc vs. Karasuno. Ushijima did so so the coach don't burn his only time out in the set.
