From the little that has been shown of Kanda, he has short, spiky hair.
Kanda is very dedicated to his academic performance, leaving Yuba Unit to concentrate on his studies of architecture. He also makes his decision with long-term goals in mind, demonstrated when he chose Kyudai for studies since he could get work experience there. He is also somewhat prideful as he joked that Yuba Unit was struggling without him.
Kanda was said not to be especially flashy as a fighter, but competent at leading his teammates into battle while Yuba engaged their opponents in one-on-one fights. Losing Kanda was a huge blow to Yuba Unit. From Satomi's imitation of him, it can be inferred that Kanda often used Gunner Triggers. Satomi also stated that he is extremely intelligent and a very gifted student who had splendid university mock exams even while enrolled in Border.
Kanda is mentioned to have left Yuba Unit for academics by Satomi, who also noted that the team's decline was due to his departure.
His unit hosts a party for him as he prepares to go to college.
