It's simply a recap movie.
It didn't really provide new content or anything, but if its been a while since you watched the first season (and never continued to the second) it's pretty helpful.

The artstyle, sound, and characters are same as before. Beautifully well done.
The story is a little smooshed together (as all recaps are) which is perfectly fine.

If you have just finished watching the first season of Haikyuu there is absolutely no need to watch this movie at all.

The art style is lovable and memorable, but at the same time - if you pause it at almost any point, it looks VERY strange, i.e. facial expressions, weird arm movements, etc.

(Quick Review)

This is a recap of some the anime first season. It has how Hinata joins Karasuno and how he meets again and teams up with his rival Kageyama, then we see how the team gets back Nishinoya and Ashai back into the team after there fight and finally, we see how Karasuno finally gets there match against there rival team Nekoma High.

This recap wasn't bad, art, the sound stayed the same from the anime. Nekoma High team is my favourite team amongst the rest and I like some the character that is in the team

I enjoyed this recap, as it refreshed me of read more
