Kinoshita Seiya is similar to Goro Shigeno in that they are both in fifth grade and play pitcher. He is a Major: The Winning Shot of Friendship character. He comes to try out for a hardball team after having only played softball, so he takes a while to get used to pitching with the new ball. He manages to hit and gets to first base at 1:21 in the film. He is number 2 for Hakata.
