Genius setter Kimichika Haijima moves back to Fukui from Tokyo after an incident within his school's volleyball team forces him out. There, he is reunited with his childhood friend, Yuni Kuroba, a member of the Monshiro Middle School Boys' Volleyball Team, who is unaware of his own talents. Haijima notices Kuroba's abilities and is determined to form a new volleyball team with Kuroba as the team's ace. At the prefectural tournament, Kuroba crumbles under the pressure, which causes the Monshiro team to fall apart after losing. The loss also creates a rift between Haijima and Kuroba, leading the former to quit the team.

Now, as students at Seiin High School, Haijima and Kuroba find themselves on the same volleyball team once again. Having learned from his past mistakes, Haijima helps Kuroba overcome his performance anxiety to become the ace and carry the team to the prefectural championship. With support from team captain Shinichirou Oda and vice captain Misao Aoki, Seiin aim to win the prefecturals and become Fukui's representatives at the Spring Tournament. To do this, they will need to beat Fukuho Technical High School, the reigning champions of Fukui. Will Haijima's team defeat the odds, or are they doomed to repeat his history of losing?

This anime was at least a 7. I think this anime got compared to you-know-what instead of people watching it for what it was actually worth.

The story was fine and even set up for another season if they wanted one, but was fine with just the one as well. The characters had growth, although there was a little drama at the beginning that did not get a decent enough explanation, which i docked points for. But overall, the story did what it needed to do fort he plot points they used.

The art and sounds were great! They did that little click-power up sound effect ...

I love sport, it’s a huge part of my life. So obviously, any anime that talks about sports interests me.

Volleyball is a really interesting sport, very fun to watch. Alas, 2.43 is not necessarily. It's not bad.. Just not very interesting. The pace is not inspiring and the relationship between the characters leaves something to be desired.

The matches aren't very intriguing, even if they're still quite fun. The “rivalries” are fairly well run, but everything goes way too fast, which is a shame.

I wouldn't go so far as to say it's bad, but it's forgettable. There was potential, like all sports anime, but it seems ...

To be honest i wouldn't recommend this to anyone the anime is pretty average or i will say below average animation is sometime decent but when compared to other anime of such kind it lacks everything from character development to pace of story and even the plot is quite confusing to me i donno its just me or i think the creator himself is quite confused the anime is incomplete so ill have to read its manga maybe that is better than anime i hope at least but i wouldn't recommend this to anyone i could've made more detailed review but don't wanna put spoilers ...
