Natsuhi Takenaka (竹中 夏陽 Takenaka Natsuhi ) is the captain of the Keishin boys basketball team. His jersey number is 4.
He is convinced that the Keishin girls basketball team does not deserve to exist, as to him, its members are only playing around instead of truly competing.
He is very competitive with Tomoka, who beats him in a free throw contest and has an angry feud with Maho, but apparently made up with her.
