Mini-Bio Just as what his teammate Kai Yuujirou did to Rokkaku's Ojii, Hirakoba, instructed by his captain Kite Eishirou, tried to injure Seigaku's Ryuuzaki Sumire during Higa's Doubles 2 match against Fuji Shuusuke and Kawamura Takashi. Fortunately for Ryuuzaki, Kawamura intercepted the ball in the nick of time. When advisor Saotome Harumi signaled for a second attack, Hirakoba gave him the cold shoulder. Hirakoba enjoys challenges and will not allow anyone to interfere with his fun. Initially, Higa appeared to have the upper hand in the match. Hirakoba's Shukuchihou and Habu sealed Fuji's Higuma Otoshi and Hakugei and Kawamura's Hadoukyuu, respectively. However, the tide turned when Fuji unveiled his Fourth Counter and Kawamura found his way around the Habu.
Technique Shukuchihou - A martial arts-based technique that gives the impression Hirakoba is able to approach the net or baseline in 1 step.
Habu - The ball curves wildly after it bounces.
Giant Habu - Whereas the Habu only curves after the ball lands, the Giant Habu curves immediately after leaving the racket.
