Maniya Saito (真二屋(まにや) 才人(さいと)) is the coach of Shuuyou Meito.


He has a chubby face, with his eyes hidden in dark shades. He also has curly, brown hair and wears a red bandanna.


During Raimon's match against his team, Shuuyou Meito, he is normally seen on the sidelines, eating watermelons (which were used for one of Shuuyou Meito's team's hissatsu). He has also implemented a rule which states that all the managers of teams who play on their field must wear maid outfits.

In the end, he was shown to be touched by Megane's words to the Shuuyou Meito team, since he was crying.


He poisoned the whole Raimon team, expect Endou and Gouenji. They still lost in the end of that match.
