After watching the largely unknown Karasuno High School overwhelmingly win a volleyball practice match, soon-to-be first-year high school student Shouyou Hinata aspires to join their team as the ace. Unfortunately, his short stature and lack of experience in playing any sort of official game earns him the ire of Karasuno's current members, including the team's famous setter Tobio Kageyama. Determined to prove that he has what it takes—and with a strong desire to show Kageyama he is wrong—Hinata begins to train and hone his skills in order to soar above them all.

This one feels empty, and maybe even fake.

I read the one-shot of Attack on Titan, and it also felt the same.

There's a lot of "story" smothered into a single chapter, and that's what makes it seem ...
