Shinichiro Oda (小田 伸一郎, Oda Shinichiro) is a third-year student at Seiin High School who serves as the captain of the boys' volleyball team and one of their outside hitters.
Oda has green eyes and short brown hair with a tiny tuft that falls over his forehead. Standing at 163 cm (5'4"), he is the shortest member of the team and he is often called out for his short stature.
When Oda was in his first year of high school, he wore his hair slicked back much like Yusuke Okuma does.

His position number, 1, and the name of the school are printed on the front of his jersey in sky blue text with a white outline. On the court, he wears white kneepads, a white volleyball shoes with black accents.
Outside of matches, Oda wears the Seiin High School uniform with his tie loosened.
