    Synopis: Inspired after watching a volleyball ace nicknamed "Little Giant" in action, small-statured Shouyou Hinata revives the volleyball club at his middle school. The newly-formed team even makes it to a tournament; however, their first match turns out to be their last when they are brutally squashed by the "King of the Court," Tobio Kageyama. Hinata vows to surpass Kageyama, and so after graduating from middle school, he joins Karasuno High School's volleyball team—only to find that his sworn rival, Kageyama, is now his teammate.

    Thanks to his short height, Hinata struggles to find his role on the team, even with his superior jumping power. Surprisingly, Kageyama has his own problems that only Hinata can help with, and learning to work together appears to be the only way for the team to be successful. Based on Haruichi Furudate's popular shounen manga of the same name, Haikyuu!! is an exhilarating and emotional sports comedy following two determined athletes as they attempt to patch a heated rivalry in order to make their high school volleyball team the best in Japan.

    What do you think of the new art style? Better? Worse? Does it even look that different?

    Haikyuu Season 4 has officially been confirmed to be in production based upon an announcement at Jump Festa 2019. In August 2019, Weekly Shonen Jump confirmed that the fourth season will be coming out during the winter 2020 anime season.

    Can't wait for it!

    Yeah I searched for it lol. I figured it had to be around here somewhere... I didn’t want to create a duplicate thread to share that link. I was pretty sure I’d seen a post at some point. ^_^

    I’m bummed about the delay but hoping that it’ll just be a pleasant surprise. I just found out that there was a movie previously, I think? So I’m going to go search for that. Maybe it was just OVAs. But something I hadn’t seen yet.

    So it looks like the OVAs will be covering the Nekoma/Fukurodani stuff they teased at the end of Season 3, which means Season 4 probably starts with Kageyama going to the National Youth Camp (again revealed in the Season 3 finale)

    Episode 1 of Season 4 came out, as well as a Nekoma OVA series! For anime-only people, the Nekoma OVAs are canon material so I’d strongly suggest tracking them down and watching them.

    The battle at the trash dump looks like it could happen this spring... I wonder who will come out on top?

    It’s nice to see our other boys in action, it looks like Lev and Shibayama will eventually become solid replacements for Kuroo and Yaku...

    So this was a really nice way to get us back up to speed with everything. The new art style is noticeably different but I like it, it’s very sleek looking.

    Hinata busting the door down to be involved with the best is very Hinata, but will the old man coach affect his confidence? Being told you’re useless without the help of your biggest rival must sting.

    And speaking of Kageyama, it looks like he’s gone straight to the top. I’m guessing some of these guys will feature in Nationals - similar to the Fukurodani training, this is a nice way to meet players from rival schools etc.

    Depending on what subs you watch, Kageyama says something along the lines of “he’s one of the country’s top three aces, and he’s the only second year here.” This isn’t an accurate translation, as it sounds like he’s saying Sakusa is the only second year at the camp (spoiler - he’s not). What he meant to say is that Sakusa is the only second year among the “Top 3” Aces (which are him, Ushiwaka and Kiryuu according to a season 2 episode).

    Whoa that Kuroo is easier to rile up than one would think! And man were those snakes dirty players. Like they had one classy-ish guy on the team and even he still begrudgingly went along with their crappy style of playing. They give snakes a bad name. But the way that Kenma was able to close in on and shut down Bokuto was awesome. Props to Akaashi for bringing him back for sure. Kenma definitely said the cruelest possible thing to Lev by telling him that he didn’t measure up to Shoyo. Wow did he get fired up! That teamwork moment was gorgeous. ^_^ Is it bad that I wanna see a little Neko-Chan version of Lev? lol
    Poor Hinata! That constant disappointment of not being chosen. Even Tsukki was picked and he was the I don’t care about volleyball that much guy. And then everyone assumes he’s just a baggage carrier? But yo, he crashed the camp! And the reactions to it! I mean really? His teammates and then the other players even. Like Karasuno thinks it’s funny. The rest of the guys are like—why isn’t he here? At least one of the people there recommended him. But yeah, this coach says he’s useless. And he’s like fine, I’m your ball boy. You’re not getting rid of me. Let’s see how unbreakable that spirit really is! I wonder how much you can learn as a ball boy. IIRC, studies have shown that visualization in sports improve performance so maybe he’ll get better by watching them? Then again, they were talking about visualizing oneself playing and performing maneuvers. I suppose we shall see. ^_^
    I watched on an official streaming service and it went like this: EEED8D62-7625-42D7-9668-1D439C33929D.jpeg 029E8444-0535-43AF-9427-6B4BA0DAD48E.jpeg

    I guess it’s a matter of interpretation if he meant second year amongst them or period? Thanks for the clarification.
