Plot : A chance event triggered Shouyou Hinata's love for volleyball. His club had no members, but somehow persevered and finally made it into its very first and final regular match of middle school, where it was steamrolled by Tobio Kageyama, a superstar player known as "King of the Court." Vowing revenge, Hinata applied to the Karasuno High School volleyball club... only to come face-to-face with his hated rival, Kageyama!
Our Review : Haikyuu! retains tension and suspense through the volleyball matches themselves, which is an important aspect of any sports anime. The anime is full of action, as the majority of the episodes have a volleyball match taking place. However, what makes Haikyuu! stand out is its ability to make the viewer identify with all of the characters involved with the match. They do it so well that more than once I found myself rooting for the rival volleyball teams to score a point! Check out Haikyuu! if you are looking for a great action packed sports anime. Know that it is a sports anime at its core, and the plot is typical fare: win the matches. However, the characters are very emotionally charged and their interactions are great, the art is done well, and the anime is extremely enjoyable.
