Mini-Bio Although Jirou is always seen napping, don't let his appearance fool you. At the Tokyo Prefectural Tournament, he defeated Fuji Yuuta in less than 15 minutes. Jirou only perks up when he is playing against a challenging opponent. So far this has happened a few times, including matches with Atobe Keigo and Fuji Shuusuke. Jirou is a volley specialist and his play style was inspired by Marui Bunta during a match two years ago. Jirou is perhaps the only player in the series who is perfectly content with a loss as long as it is memorable.
On Jirou Hiyoshi: He's a genius when it comes to volleys, but he is rather inconsistent. This is his weakness...
Ootori: Jirou-san looks like he's having a lot of fun when he is playing tennis. Somehow he makes me feel happier as well.
Technique Magic Volley - Jirou can volley at any positions and it is nearly impossible to predict where his volleys will drop.
