Personality

Taka is a calm collective and very cold aloof and doesn't seam motivated to work hard honing his catching skill and is always training out of habit with no goal, however he shown to respect people with talent such as Yamato and Karin

Plot

Taka is a long-haired player for Teikoku, he unexpectedly demonstrated his catching ability to Monta by catching a ball one handed without even looking up from the book he was reading. He is most likely the one to whom Honjo, history's strongest fielder and Taka's father, was referring to when he said Monta would meet "someone" at the Christmas Bowl. Finding out Taka's lineage, Monta realizes that Honjo-senshu came looking for a strong opponent for his son to beat and to give his son motivation. Similarly, Mamori asked Hiruma to cut out any Teikoku article even mentioning Taka out of fear that Monta would discover his idol's son was the best receiver on the best team in Japan, notable for making 1st team in his first day just like Yamato. His record at the long jump is 8.25m (this is very impressive given the world record is 8.95m) and he holds the Japanese record at the high school level by a wide margin.

Because of his consistent daily training with his father, Taka is always training out of habit with no goal, even during Teikoku practice he only finds a challenge in Yamato. Because he cannot find a rival, he prefers to relax and read instead of overexerting himself in public. Like all of the first team, Taka has a 40 yard dash of under 5 seconds.

Later in the series, he is shown as having jumping leisurely to intercept Hiruma's pass to Monta. It looks like Taka is floating (or skywalking) like a Hawk would. In chapter 284, Taka is seen using Monta's Devil backfire against him with ease. In other chapters, Taka is shown to be able to strip the ball out of his opposing receiver's hands with only one or two fingers if they manage to catch it.

In the mess created during Deimon's attempt to do the Chris Cross, however, he felt that Monta was starting to best him. Feeling wary, he encourages his teammates to go all-out against Deimon.... After a touchdown by Monta, Taka speeds up to "around Yamato's average speed".

After the Christmas Bowl, he is seen exchanging information with Raimon Taro (Monta) on their cell phones before moving away from one another.

It was revealed that Taka was the one who recruited Karin on to the team.

The Book he was shown to be reading was The Catcher in the Rye. *

Like all of the first string Taka can run 40 yards in under five seconds. He can also long jump 8.25 meters. In the manga 'Devilbat Investigations' it was revealed that he has a sister named Hibari Honjo who is a flight attendant.

Later in the series, he was requited to join the Dream Team and find other members to join, in the Kantou region with Yamato Takeru.

Relationship

Techniques/Strategies

  • The Hawk: Using his training as a long jumper, Taka is able to not only leap high in the air but move as if he's walking on air at a high speed. By using this "flying" ability, Taka can steal balls flying high in the air and turn an impossible catch to their side.
