“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
– Hinata Shoyo
Haikyu is one of those anime which will stay above all the other sports anime produced till date. In this article we will discuss regarding Haikyu anime in detail. I’ll share my personal experience and opinions along with that we will have a overall interactive content throughout this post – let’s get started!
Overview: The protagonist Hinata Shoyo loses to the ace Kageyama Tobio, a mid-schooler in an inter-school volleyball match. However, Hinata decides to join Karasuno High School hoping to strive and defeat Kageyama in the upcoming match, surprisingly the rival joins Karasuno High School. Now they have to play as teammates.
The plot in this anime Haikyu mostly revolves around Hinata and Kageyama, but there are other dope characters that we will witness in the upcoming episodes. The characters in the story are so well sketched that they make your jaw drop in every scene. The best part about Haikyu is that so many overpowered characters make Karasuno look helpless.
Karasuno School in Haikyu anime, goes under rigorous training and fun to face their new contenders to reach new heights, under which the team learns about their competitors, and comes up with new strategies and techniques.
The background music in the anime is so soothing and refreshing that one can use the playlist for a morning jog/drive. The dialogues in the anime are so inspiring and engaging and are completely relatable.
How Haikyu anime is different from others?
Haikyu’s characters are defined in such a way that there is no antagonist or as such, it’s purely a characters-driven show to induce goosebumps to every prospect of this show. The Irony about this show is whenever they play a match against their contender, I was sure that Karasuno will lead but I was proven wrong every single time. The fineness of this show is you need not know volleyball.
Best moments in Haikyu Anime
It’s really too hard to choose the best moments, I would rather say the best segments or matches which are intriguing and goosebumps guaranteed scenes, the atmosphere during the match makes you feel tense more than Karasuno players.
- Karasuno vs Dateko
- Karasuno vs Aoba Johsai ( Playoffs)
- Karasuno vs Aoba Johsai ( Inter-high prelimineries)
- Karasuno vs Shiratorizawa
- Karasuno vs Inarizaki
The animation in the series is so smooth, which makes your eye capture every single moment happening in the series, the cinematography switch in the match is so transparent and dynamic which makes you stunned. Voice artists have made a wonderful job by being specific in terms of character-related voice. Daichi-san, one tacchu, chance baalu, ace ( You’ll remember me while characters using these verbs )
The characters in the series are so freaking amazing, I bet that at the end of the show you don’t know whom to choose as you’re top five favorites in Haikyu. The backstory of each Karasuno player is so enthralling that it actuates your emotions and maybe even leaves you in tears. The reason each player in the series for playing volleyball is so beautiful, the passion, the team spirit, and the talent makes you speechless.

Why should you watch Haikyu anime?
- One of the best sports (shonen) anime
- Not only for sports enthusiasts
- Inspiring and funny

I would highly recommend everyone out there to be a part of Karasuno, trust me this is one of those shows which is in my top five anime of all time, If you’re someone who loves a show with a story that is character-driven, action-packed, and fun-oriented, sit back and relax, grab a coffee, and watch the rise of Karasuno High School ( Haikyu!)
One life, Love all!
