What is Haikyuu! about, you may ask? Haikyuu! is about Hinata Shoyou who is inspired to restart the volleyball club at his middle school after watching the “Little Giant,” a high school volleyball ace, who is of a similar small-stature as Hinata. However, when Hinata gets to the tournament, they get wrecked in their first game which was against Kageyama Tobio, nicknamed “King of the Court.” Hinata swears to overcome him, only to find that his rival is now his teammate when they both join Karasuno High School’s volleyball team. Kageyama and Hinata must work together in order for the team to be successful despite their rivalry to constantly up the other. Haikyuu! is based on Haruichi Furudate’s manga, and follows an exciting sports story of two unlikely friends trying to make their volleyball team the best in Japan. (As said by Em.)
