Ever since having witnessed the "Little Giant" and his astonishing skills on the volleyball court, Shouyou Hinata has been bewitched by the dynamic nature of the sport. Even though his attempt to make his debut as a volleyball regular during a middle school tournament went up in flames, he longs to prove that his less-than-impressive height ceases to be a hindrance in the face of his sheer will and perseverance.

When Hinata enrolls in Karasuno High School, the Little Giant's alma mater, he believes that he is one step closer to his goal of becoming a professional volleyball player. Although the school only retains a shadow of its former glory, Hinata's conviction isn't shaken until he learns that Tobio Kageyama—the prodigy who humiliated Hinata's middle school volleyball team in a crushing defeat—is now his teammate.

To fulfill his desire of leaving a mark on the realm of volleyball—so often regarded as the domain of the tall and the strong—Hinata must smooth out his differences with Kageyama. Only when Hinata learns what it takes to be a part of a team will he be able to join the race to the top in earnest.

This is a very good start. It’s not exactly breaking the mold with its characters, and it’s still missing significant details regarding their motivations and backgrounds with a couple of exceptions (this has mainly been the Kageyama show so far) but it’s a series that understands what it’s selling: getting you hyped for some volleyball with a bunch of high schoolers. And yeah, it looks great, the movements are fluid and dynamic, and each point feels well and truly earned.

But that doesn’t really distinguish this series from other sports dramas. I’d say it manages that in two aspects: team dynamics and how setbacks affect the ...

Mixed Feelings
Wouldn't really recommend. I mean it's alright and all but I wouldn't say it's the best sports anime (its hajime no ippo btw) I just don't think I'll rate the other seasons. I've watched them but they are all mediocre as well. Would not recommend it, but if I do you might enjoy it more than me.

Characters like daichi and tanaka were cool but other than that. Mid characters left right and centre. Hinata is the most generic of the lot but other than that he isn't that bad.

Story was alright honestly, nothing too bad at all. Art style was a little iffy at times ...

Overall rating: 5, further review below.

This season of Haikyu has a special place in my heart. Not only is it the first anime that made me fall asleep in the middle of the episode. Not only is it the first anime to do it twice, but this is even the first anime to make me do it 3 times, I'm even considering going for a nap as of writing this review, this is just how boring I find Haikyu to be.

So, if I were to explain what is Haikyuu, the only thing I could answer is, Haikyuu is a sports anime, a volleyball anime in ...
