Synopsis

A chance event triggered Shouyou Hinata's love for volleyball. His club had no members, but somehow persevered and finally made it into its very first and final regular match of middle school, where it was steamrolled by Tobio Kageyama, a superstar player known as "King of the Court." Vowing revenge, Hinata applied to the Karasuno High School volleyball club... only to come face-to-face with his hated rival, Kageyama!

A tale of hot-blooded youth and volleyball from the pen of Haruichi Furudate!!

"If this were a work of fiction.

The guys who go to nationals would be the protagonists, and the rest of us would be extras.

But, regardless.. We got to play volleyball."

My first review, let's hope it catches the amount of enjoyment that I've had up to date. (Episode 17)

STORY:
As a sports player I found the plot to be amazing, while often people compare this show to the major hit Kuroko No Basuke. I feel that Haikyuu in terms of plot is much stronger. In that it delves into the lives of the characters, not just the MC's but their team mates and opponents alike in read more

This is my first review here and I'm doing it because I hope to get more people interested in this amazing anime! I am sure that even after 25 episodes my impression will be the same and I won't come back to edit the scores or my words.

Story
A lot of people compared Haikyuu to Koroko no Basket, I also think they're alike in many ways. We get to see two main characters forming a powerful duo and aiming for the top along with their team. Though in this story two boys are actually rivals and this adds more funny moments and interesting plot developement. I read more

Recommendations

Both are sports anime. Haikyuu is more funny too than Kuroko no basket. Both anime have a group of colorful characters and two main characters that are aiming to be the best at something . One is Volleyball and the other is basketball.
A gift for sports fans, both series delivers themselves with competitive teamwork and plays that focuses on development. The main characters has a passion for the sport that they are playing and works towards their goal to becoming stronger each episode. Their teammates helps them along the way while tackling through difficult obstacles. It is realistic as we see how much the characters grow through their development over the course. I recommend both series especially if you're the type into sports with competitive team play.
