After the victory against Aoba Jousai High, Karasuno High School, once called “a fallen powerhouse, a crow that can’t fly,” has finally reached the climax of the heated Spring tournament. Now, to advance to nationals, the Karasuno team has to defeat the powerhouse Shiratorizawa Academy. Karasuno’s greatest hurdle is their adversary’s ace, Wakatoshi Ushijima, the number one player in the Miyagi Prefecture, and one of the country’s top three aces.

Only the strongest team will make it to the national tournament. Since this match is the third-year players’ last chance to qualify for nationals, Karasuno has to use everything they learned during the training camp and prior matches to attain victory. Filled with restlessness and excitement, both teams are determined to come out on top in the third season of Haikyuu!!.

“Even if we're not confident that we'll win, even if others tell us we don't stand a chance, we must never tell ourselves that.”
-Daichi Sawamura

In today's anime age; a world filled with over-analyzations and deconstructions, it's always nice to see a series like Haikyuu come along as if to passively antagonize critics with its immense amount of hype. I've been quite guilty of it in the past, often thinking there was no other reason to watch a series than to critique how much it made you 'think'. But to all the fault-finding reviewers and critics out there (myself included), I have one thing to ...

Overall rating: 6, further review below.

Holy shit I wrote the first three sentences before I fell asleep. I swear Haikyuu is a curse. ANyway...

Yes, I actually binged this season in 2 days. No, I don't like Haikyuu any more than I did during the first two seasons, despite the fact I actually didn't fall asleep a single time. Thanks to the format of this season, or maybe my sleep schedule is finally fixed (doubtful).

This season of Haikyuu happens to be the highest ranked on MAL. Logical, after all, the only thing that happens is the match between Karasuno and SHiratori Zawa, the biggest guys ...

Instead of actually making a third season to the pretty popular sports anime Haikyuu!!, the producers thought it would be good idea to do a sort of mini season that will show this particular match between Karasuno and Shiratorizawa (this is not a spoiler it's in the title). At first this didn't seem like a bad idea. The fans will get what they want earlier and the studio probably will make more profit out of this than waiting a year to make the third season. I also didn't mind until I saw the amount of episodes this season would get. Upon that discovery I would ...
