His dark hair sports a spiked crewcut in which the hairline is dyed brown. Additionally, his rounded eyebrows part ways at their peaks. During the Yuba Squad Reunion he wore a graphic shirt under a collared, casual jacket.
Kanda is very dedicated to his academic performance, leaving his squad mid-season to concentrate on his architectural studies — even so, he stayed as long as he could. He also makes his decisions with long-term goals in mind, as demonstrated when he chose Kyudai for studies since he could get work experience there. He is also somewhat prideful, as he joked that Yuba Squad was struggling without him; even so, he has shown to be supportive of his teammates' prospects.
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 considered a huge blow to Yuba Squad. From Satomi's imitation of him, it can be inferred that Kanda often used Gunner Triggers. Satomi also complimented his intellect as a gifted student who had splendid university mock exams, even while enrolled in Border.
Kanda is mentioned to have left Yuba Squad for academics by Satomi, who also felt that the team's decline was due to his departure.
His squad hosts a party for him as he prepares to go to college.
