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.

Fly High! A battle of heights, where shorts are at the disadvantage, but it is where we get to see the most motivational and inspirational of all time. Because what if we are at a disadvantage or handicap, though it’s not made us useless? It’s given us room for improvement, to see the summit from the top.  

The story is about a volleyball-loving freak meeting another volleyball-loving freak, lol. It sounds like cliché, right? Anyway, Hinata, the protagonist of Haikyuu, is short, but his effort knows no bounds. As if he wants to fly higher and higher to surpass everyone. What can we expect from a ...

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 ...

Literally on of the most boring anime I have ever seen

"Haikyuu" didn't quite hit the mark for me. Despite, I found it lacking in excitement and originality. The storyline felt predictable, and the characters failed to capture my interest...well oikawa did a little but the rest of the charecters are very basic and I didn't like the comedy in the anime it's so corny...

I can appreciate the effort put into portraying volleyball dynamics and the animation was perfect actually, but idk i really felt sleepy watching this anime . Overall, "Haikyuu" didn't manage to engage me in the way I had hoped.

The Importance of Worldbuilding in Anime

It's essential for an anime to have a creative premise, but it's even more important to have worldbuilding that backs it up.
