Nekoma High School's volleyball team recruits a new member: the half-Japanese, half-Russian Lev Haiba. Though the self-proclaimed ace is blessed with great height, he lacks basic volleyball techniques. This gives the team's setter, Kenma Kozume, a hard time when matching up with him.

To everyone's surprise, Nekoma's coach suggests that Lev play in the Kunihira Senior High School's practice match, leaving Kenma no choice but to cooperate with the tall player. Will Kenma be able to overcome this new challenge?

This OVA was pure class. I love EVERYTHING about it, especially the ending when Ukai yells at all of them to go home. In the space of twenty-something minutes, we get character development between Kenma and Lev, although that's to be expected of Haikyuu. A class OVA from a class anime.

It was hilarious too. All the scenes with Karasuno were just hilarious and Lev's such a lovely character. It's impossible NOT to smile when he's on screen, shouting ...

Haikyuu! Season 1 OVA Review
By: Haruichi Furudate
July 7, 2019

There are two OVA's in this season. The first one is where a new character has been introduced. In this series, there's only two paths that they can choose from. It is to improve all members of the team or to add new member who have the foundation need and can add to the level of the team itself. And this OVA shows that they pick the first one. This character just need polishment and practice to improve. In the future, how he play will be a sight to see. The second OVA is more on a ...
