After watching a volleyball match on TV where the "Little Giant" of Karasuno High School helps his team secure a hard-fought victory, young and impressionable Shouyou Hinata begins to play the sport in hopes that he too can soar high one day. Now enrolled at the same school as his idol, he attempts to join the volleyball team despite his short stature. Unfortunately, upon his arrival, Hinata locks eyes with "King of the Court" Tobio Kageyama—a genius setter whom he had once suffered a bitter defeat to in middle school.

Their unfriendly introduction and subsequent rivalry forces the rest of the Karasuno team to bar both of them from joining the club until they can learn to work together as teammates. Though reluctant to cooperate, their desire to play volleyball causes them to return with a proposal that will show the other members that they are capable of teamwork. As the two freshmen form an odd setter-and-ace relationship, an old rival school invites Karasuno for practice matches, reigniting competition between the two schools once more.

This essentially recaps the first half of the first season of Haikyuu!!. Except, in the ending, there is a scene of when Kenma and Kuroo were younger and when they originally made the decision to be a team and the kind of methods they would use. Other than that, it is essentially the same.

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.

This movie, as you would expect, uses the same sound effects and music as the series - but those sound effects ...

(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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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.

If you're like I am, and watched it a few years ago and completely forget basically everything that happened I would recommend watching the first and second ...
