Who the hell would think a show about volleyball would be so entertaining or even remotely interesting? So lets get into what its all about; Shōyō Hinata is the main protagonist of the Haikyuu!! Hinata's dream is to become strong enough to spike past tall blockers just like what the Small Giant once did. That's why he specializes in jumping to compensate for his lack of height Shoyo Hinata is cycling around the streets when he pauses to watch a volleyball match on TV. On it is a volleyball match featuring a player nicknamed "Little Giant", who Hinata is inspired by. Hinata decides to start a volleyball team in his school with his schoolmates (though most of them aren't interested in volleyball). In the end, Kageyama easily wins (3-0) but Hinata vows revenge.
Example of the combination of Hinata and Kageyama Hinata arrives at his new school, Karasuno High School (the same school where the "Little Giant" used to attend), determined to join the volleyball club and one day defeat Kageyama. The third years agree but on one condition: if Kageyama and Hinata lose, as long as the third years are around, Kageyama will never play as setter. He also tries to learn from mistakes made in past matches and can improve his skills merely by watching his opponents and teammates and trying to copy their movements, although most of the time he fails.
After doing many flying falls during the summer training camp, Hinata's agility improved greatly. What's more, thanks to Bokuto, Hinata learned to how to feint which helps him surprise blockers.
Hinata has also admitted to Keishin Ukai that when he's spiking and he's over the net, he can see the movements his opponents make and even the looks on their faces.
The Formidable Ally Sawamura accepts the match proposal from Hinata and Kageyama, but he alters it. Sawamura reveals he will play on the opposing team and places Tanaka Ryuunosuke as Kageyama and Hinata's teammate for the match. Kageyama and Hinata meet fellow first years Kei Tsukishima and Tadashi Yamaguchi. In the secret morning practices, Kageyama, Hinata, and Tanaka work on improving Hinata's serve receives and his spikes. The show is very humorous, and the humour actually works because it is so well written. The dialogue comes surreal with great delivery from each of the players.
The View From the Summit The 3-on-3 practice match that will determine Kageyama and Hinata's future with the volleyball club begins with Kageyama, Hinata, and 2nd year Ryuunosuke battling Tsukishima, Yamaguchi, and 3rd year captain Sawamura. Kageyama begins to fall into his old setting habits, making it hard for Hinata and Ryuunosuke to spike the ball. It looks like it will be an easy win in set 1 for the captain's team, but then Kageyama and Hinata start to succeed with their quick attack, which could completely change the outcome of the match.
The new members Kageyama and Hinata begin to get in sync. As Kageyama's sets start hitting Hinata's hands every time, Tsukishima is forced to change his blocking tactics. This frees Tanaka up on the other side, and Kageyama, Hinata, and Ryuunosuke's team is able to rally and win the 3-on-3 match. Kageyama and Hinata are accepted as official team members. However there is one condition: Tobio Kageyama must act as the setter for the entire match.
Karasuno goes to its practice match against Aobajousai High. Before the match even begins, Kageyama runs into his old teammate, Kindaichi Yutaro, who continually calls him "King of the Court" and declares that he will defeat Kageyama. As the series progresses; the suspense builds. The actually moment of volleyball action is some of the best I’ve ever seen in an anime series, which is credited to the great directing in each episode. Once the match gets underway though, Kageyama and Hinata's quick attack proves to be an effective weapon. but Ittetsu comes up with a plan that he believes will convince Keishin into becoming the coach: setting up a practice match with Nekoma.
After hearing about the practice match, Keishin Ukai agrees to become Karasuno's coach but after the practice match finishes, he's quitting. Now, Asahi must prove that he deserves the ace title and get past the triple block of Kageyama, Tanaka, and Tsukishima to regain his confidence.
The practice match between Karasuno and the Neighborhood Association continues, the Neighborhood team having won the first set. Ukai sees firsthand how Hinata is the ultimate decoy and learns how quickly Kageyama and Hinata have grown together as a duo. During a team jog, Hinata gets lost and runs into a volleyball player in a red jersey named Kenma. After hesitating to decide on a starting lineup, Ukai goes with Daichi, Nishinoya, Asahi, Tanaka, Tsukishima, Kageyama, and Hinata. Karasuno's players receive their jerseys and Hinata has the number 10, the same number as his idol, the "Little Giant." Nekoma and Karasuno line up outside and meet each other face-to-face. Anyway we will leave it at there; as there is so much more to this quirky series than you would expect. Overall we found this series very fast paced, clever and highly fun. It just proves you can take any concept or idea and turn it into an anime very, very successfully.
