Junior high school student Kimichika Haijima moves back to his hometown, Fukui, after causing trouble in the Tokyo Junior High School volleyball club. There, he is reunited with his childhood friend, Yuni Kuroba, who possesses outstanding physical abilities, but is vulnerable under pressure. Haijima, with his overwhelming passion and talent for volleyball, forms an ace combination with Kuroba.

The two enroll at Seiin High School, where they join the volleyball club. Awaiting them are the 163 cm hot-blooded captain Shinichirou Oda, the talented and sharp-tongued vice-captain Misao Aoki and his third-year pair, and second-year students, including Akito Kanno, who is always wearing long sleeves due to his allergy to sunlight.

The newborn team breaks its former shell of weakness and becomes Fukui's rising star. This is a certain team's journey to victory, with a series of fascinating rivals standing in their way.

This review is spoiler free :D

2.43: Seiin Koukou Danshi Volley-bu is quite standard. It doesn’t make you feel much watching it. The direction is...okay? The animation is pretty bad, except for the insane spikes that David Production will occasionally pour the whole budget into. The show just lacks substance. It lacks that “oomph” that propels it over being ordinary. It feels flat. It doesn’t come to life on your screen like a good anime should.

That’s not to say the show itself is bad. There are some good plot points, some likeable characters, and some interesting dynamics. I enjoyed the dual perspective of the read more

I had high hopes for this ever since the first episode, but that quickly diminished as the series goes on.
The story became a pile of rubbish, ruined by rushed pacing. The story itself is decent, but paired with bad pacing, then it'd be much much worst than it actually is.

The characters are non-existent. Basically, anyone other than the two main characters and the two rival characters, aren't developed to make them "characters". There are the captain and the other guy (forgot his name cause that's all they are, forgettable) that got little development. But all their interaction and development are so stiff and unnatural that read more

To begin, I want to say before watching Seiin Koukou Danshi Volley-bu, I was not a very big fan of sports anime at all. I love sports in real life but have not found myself very interested in sports animated. HOWEVER, I fell in love this this show very quickly. I feel like it focuses a lot on the characters, instead of simply the sport. The show really got even better with every new episode. So, if you are not content with the first couple of episodes, I promise it gets better if you keep watching, and I will tell you why you should below.

Whenever shows that tend to be setting up on the wavelengths of superior ones before it, the most apt case of comparison will be the most unsightly one...and in this case, 2.43: Seiin High School Boys Volleyball Team will get the most flack for looking like the "superiorally" inferior rip-off to one of the most prominent volleyball shows ever made: Production I.G's Haikyuu!. But yet, I implore you to hold off that comparison.

Also, 2.43 is the height of the net for male volleyball: 2.43m, and the same could be said for the level of ambition for the show: too high, and when it drops, it read more
