According to the promotional posters sent to bookstores for the upcoming volume 8 of the manga, volleyball manga "Haikyuu!!" will get a TV anime adaptation scheduled in spring 2014. Haikyuu!! was written by Furudate Haruichi and started serialization in Shounen Jump in late 2012. So far, seven volumes have been published and volume 8 will be released on October 4th. Staff and cast information has not been disclosed yet; however, the cast for the vomic (voiced comic) made in November 2012 was as follows:

Hinata Shouyou: Kenn
Kageyama Tobio: Maeno Tomoaki
Sawamura Daichi: Yanagita Junichi
Tanaka Ryuunosuke: Motohashi Daisuke
Shimizu Kiyoko: Uchida Maaya

Haikyuu!! on MAL
Modified by myanimelistllc, Feb 14, 2016 12:59 AM
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Rumor has it that it would be a NHK (the public broadcast of Japan) which seems rather fitting in my opinion, but it is only a rumor so far.

Found out this manga a few days ago and thought to myself: "this would be a rather pleasant anime to watch". Talk about nice coincidences.

Kuroko No Basket is going to end soon, WSJ needs to pump up its new promising sports manga...
I can't wait *w*
(I hope they'll keep the same seiyuu of the Vomic for Shouyou and Tobio...they were perfect!)

So you are sure that High Kyuu has more female readers than male like Kuroko? Or perhaps it could be like Slam Dunk where there were more male readers than female?

Haha fujoshi shouldn't be underestimated! They (we) can squeal at pretty much anything P:
But indeed, it doesn't seem to be geared towards girls at all.
Might check it out, for the unrelated reason that I kinda like volleyball~

And I was also expecting this to be cute girls playing cute volleyball, with a cute title like that~ I almost didn't click it.

More sports anime is always fantastic news, especially since it's volleyball and not baseball/football/basketball which seem to be the most common ones these days. Looking forward tot his very much.

Sounds like a super standard sports anime story, but volleyball hasn't really been done before as far as I know.

Thing is, HQ!! does have the most female to male readers percentage in Jump, even more than Kuroko and Gintama, according to a recent survey:

Aww, come on.

I wasn't insulting HQ, I was just pointing out the obvious.

Sports anime are the current fujoshi trend just like idorus are the current otaku obsession.

I wonder how long the anime will keep HQ!! on its feet after dropping to the very bottom of the rankings in the last couple of weeks. Personally I doubt it'll reach what Kuroko reached.

Lol, do you know how was Kuroko doing before getting the anime? Bottom 5 every.single.week. And that situation kept going for a really long time. It's true that an anime adaptation is not enough to keep a manga on the top (just look at Beelzebub now...), but with Kuroko going to end soon they need a sports manga on the magazine.

As you can see, they didn't decide this yesterday. And at that time Haikyuu was doing very well on rankings...

Okay if a sport anime that follows an art style like Slam Dunk or REAL were to be announced would you call it "fujoshi targeted" as well?

My guess is probably no.


But here we are with young boys and Shounen Jump instead of Inoue Takehiko's works and seinen tags and these kinds of replies come rushing out.

I'm not very fond of the manga... If there were different seiyuu, maybe (ever since I have heard of the vomic I've been more disappointed in this)... But if there's an anime adaption, the drawings should be corrected at times which would make it easier to try to enjoy it...

Will be nice to watch some sport anime that isn't just about soccer, basketball, baseball or tennis. Even if it's a normal shonen.

Well, more seinen sports anime would be nice, but looks like they must not necessarily be seinen to not be labeled as "fujoshit". Area No Kishi got away from this thing pretty well, and even Diamond No Ace or Yowamushi Pedal (the most recent examples that come to my mind) didn't get "fujoshi labeled" even before they get aired. I don't know, probably it's just as you say... just because it's Shounen Jump? Lol.
(Wut, I'm terribly going off topic here)

I do know about both, and the timing was to make people get more interested in the series more (Yeah, I know how Jump works). But I just can't see HQ getting as popular as Kuroko. HQ!! seems more childish than Kuroko with its characters and their designs. The premise is meh as well, and as I showed in the survey above, the series will depend heavily on its fujoshi/female-readers support for it to survive, and unless it has god-tier animation like Free!, I doubt it'll reach what Kuroko or Free reached. But well, who knows.

My thoughts exactly. Volleyball being the sport at hand makes it seem pretty interesting. Hopefully it delivers.

I once found this referenced in an article (http://www.nikkei.com/article/DGXNASFK31007_R31C12A0000000/?dg=1) from November 2012, which isn't exactly recently.

It still showed that HQ survived its first 4-5 months, the material for a 1-cour anime series, thanks to its female readers. Jump tried to make HQ appealing for males, as they tried making Nisekoi for girls by a crossover, but as a male reader myself, Nisekyuu!! barely raised my interest in HQ, so I doubt that percentage is that different.

That's true again, but I thought it was worth pointing out since the readership has most likely changed. (Or to be more exact, those were results which took into consideration the people who bought WSJ! and what series they read; they probably disregarded people who share the magazine etc.)

In the first place, the actual readership and the targetted readership isn't necessarily the same. WSJ! in itself should be a good enough example for this. I don't remember anything in the manga that was intentionally done for female readers (it's been sometime since I last read it, though), but I'm aware of the amount of HQ!! fanarts for and by fujoshi which may indicate a high number of female readers but then again, it often doesn't take much for the mangaka to have them create tons of fanarts...
