The long-awaited finals of the Spring Tournament have arrived for Karasuno High School's volleyball team. The winner of the match will go on to represent all of Miyagi Prefecture at the National Tournament. However, the last challenge Karasuno must overcome is to win against Shiratorizawa Academy, the school that houses Wakatoshi Ushijima, one of Japan's top three aces. Shiratorizawa is the reigning Miyagi champion for the past three years, and Karasuno seems to have little chance at dethroning them.

When the other school's captain Ushijima insults Karasuno to their faces, freshmen duo Shouyou Hinata and Tobio Kageyama swear to defeat them and steal their spot in the nationals. Against a roster full of nationally-ranked players, the former flightless crows will have to use everything in their arsenal if they want to represent Miyagi.

Reason for watching: The additional scenes on Shiratorizawa

I am a big fan of Haikyuu! here, but not much of a manga person. The movie contains some scenes that are not included in the main series. There's even a little extra flashback scene here that tells us where the phrase "One point that worth a hundred" actually comes from. The additional scenes on Shiratorizawa were endearing too.

The recap itself was done pretty well too, better than the previous 3 recap movies. Not to say their recap was bad, just that there were too many important moments (to me) in the timeline that the previous 3 recap ...

This essentially recaps the Third Season of Haikyuu!!. This movie, although a recap, is phenomenal. If they had this movie instead of the third season - you would still be extremely engaged as you were during S3.

The art style is on par with the third season and is very well detailed. The small details on the faces and outfits of Shiratorizawa leaves you with your mouth agape

The sound effects here are very well used and well placed, it all flowed smoothly and the dramatic silences, as well as voice acting, were all phenomenal.

(Quick Review)

The fourth recap movie that recaps the entire third season of Haikyuu. So this recap is basically the entire battle of Karasuno vs Shiratorizawa. The recap was good it had all the battle major moments like when Tsukishima stops Ushijima spike or the final rally of the two teams trying to score the final point to win and we see Karasuno winning but at the end of the credits we see some extra scenes from Shriatorizawa side after there battle and how Ushijima is giving the new roles to the second and first years to help their team grow stronger as they will be ...
