Kaneda Ichirō is a regular in the St. Rudolph Team. Of the current regulars, Kaneda and his captain Akazawa Yoshiro are the only original St. Rudolph students. It is for this reason that Mizuki Hajime paired them up for doubles. Kaneda looks up to Akazawa. Thus, it took Kaneda a lot of courage to stand up against Akazawa the first time they played together. Kaneda is quite perceptive and a natural doubles player, being able to break through the Golden Pair's Australian Formation.

Playing Style and TechniquesEdit

Kaneda is noted to be a Counter Puncher and a Doubles Specialist, although he's overshadowed by many of the other flashier players on his team. Out of all the Regulars in St. Rudolph, Kaneda and Akazawa are the only original members of the team. Mizuki has stated that Kaneda did not simply remain in Akazawa's shadow and his efforts were shown to pay off during his match against the Golden Pair.

In comparison to Akazawa's straightforward Singles playstyle, Kaneda does not particularly stand out, although he's shown a firm grasp on Doubles strategies and the basics, being able to work with Akazawa despite the duo playing individually for the first half of the game.

He's able to notice flaws in the Australian Formation and was able to bait out Oishi with a drop volley so Akazawa could finish the point with the smash. Despite Akazawa weakening Eiji throughout the match, Kaneda's knowledge and co-operation helped the duo score the first win against the Golden Pair shown in the series. However, his control isn't perfect, as shown by his Double Fault and hitting a lob out (although the backstep from the lob didn't help in this regard).
