Natsuya Kirishima (桐嶋夏也 Kirishima Natsuya) was the junior high student who debuted in the second volume of the light novel High☆Speed! written by Kōji Ōji.[1] He is the older brother of Ikuya Kirishima.


Natsuya is a relatively tall and muscular young man with short, unruly brown hair and amber eyes.


Natsuya is a boisterous, keen, and upbeat character. On the surface, he doesn't seem deterred by much but shows a vulnerable side to his friend Nao after feuding with his younger brother. He is angered easily by Haru's apparent disobedience and impassivity. He is kind and firm, aspects shown often around his team.


Kirishima Natsuya was the captain of Iwatobi Swimming Club in Iwatobi Junior High. His little brother, Kirishima Ikuya, also participated in his team. One of his closest friends was Nao, the team manager. He ended up recruiting Haru, Makoto, Asahi and his younger brother for the team shortly after they began their first year of middle school. The movie and light novel ends with him still holding his title as the captain of the team.

He appears to have a good relationship with Nao. The tension between him and Ikuya eases up toward the end of the light novel. He seems easily agitated by insolence, as shown by the younger members of the team when they were not cooperating with each other.
