Default Haikyuu!!

Haikyuu!!


Synopsis, screenshots, recommendations

Hinata Shouyou, upon seeing a volleyball match, is aiming to become "The Small Giant", and joins his middle school volleyball club. After finding new members, they set out for the middle school tournament, where they've cross paths with a formidable school with the "King of the Upper Court", Kageyama Tobio. Although their team lost, Shouyou is still determined to aim for the top and exact revenge on Kageyama. Upon entering high school, he received the biggest surprise--he and Kageyama are in the same school and club!

This is an amazing sports manga, and is a direct competitor with series like Kuroko no Basuke in WSJ!
Let me get this straight: Volleyball is one of my least favorite sports to participate in, but this manga is totally awesome!
I'd recommend it even to people who aren't all that much into sports series. This is the first real sports series I tried after generally having a dismissive attitude towards the genre in the past.

Well, it's abnout time this got a thread. It may only be me and you posting in it but it deserved one!

Quality manga though. The characters are varied and a lot of fun, the matches are exciting and tense, the art is great, even the training chapters are good stuff. If anyone liked Kuroko you should give this a shot, it's very similar.

Can't wait for the anime, hopefully it will get more people interested in the manga.

I disagree. They are delightfully different from each other!
Among other things, Haikyuu!! is far more realistic than Kuroko no Basuke, and it is almost devoid of "no-effort genius" characters.
Even the few geniuses that there are, like
have their skill pretty much deconstructed and shown in a more realistic light, like how

Eh, regardless of how a handfull of character works to get where they are the series' both have a shitload in common. The matches play out similarly and have the same sort of tension and quality about them, the character types are kinda similar, they essentially follow the same competition format, both have teams who are a bit down on their luck suddenly get a couple of great players to propel them up the ranking, both have some decent comedy going on at roughly the same times....

....yeah, they are similar series, they just are, and fans of one will probably really enjoy the other. I'd also say that Hinata's jump is a form of no effort genius.

Chapter 80

VOICE ACTORS!
Still quite a while until April, and I don't imagine any VA reveals before February or March.

Thing is, I actually have a hard time imagining who will be picked, and I can't really point out any favorites myself. No, not even a role for Okamoto.
I only know I want Atsumi Tanezaki as Yachi, but since it could be until S2 that she appears it feels pointless to ponder now. Besides, there's not enough justice in the world for her to get that role.


While I'm not entirely sure it is the pick I'd go with, I still imagine that Yuuki Kaiji has a good shot at being cast as Hinata.
Noriaki Sugiyama seems like a decent pick for Kageyama, although he could probably also work for Tsukishima.
ah, I think I figured out a character for Okamoto... *sigh* Yamaguchi.

Oh man, that latest chapter was cool

Loved the final page with Hinata and Kageyama on the tree. Can't wait to see Hinata take his game to the next level again, although probably not without some more friction between him and Kageyama.
