After Kuroko no Basuke ended, Production I.G immediately did not let sports anime lovers wait long when launching Haikyuu!! in the fall-winter anime season of the same year in 2014 and the series quickly became one of the most anticipated anime fall-winter anime season.
If Kuroko no Basuke is about the team sport of basketball, then Haikyuu!! will bring people to switch the field to another indoor team sport, volleyball, still following the traditional motif of sports movies, will be a once strong team that is in a state of decline, playing unstable and being bullied by schools. others in the area despised, despised. During the recruitment season, there will be the appearance of a new element, usually a couple. In Haikyuu!! Karasuno is likened to the ‘crows with broken wings’, the ‘Wrong King’ has recruited 4 first-year students Hinata Shouyou, Kageyama Tobio, Tsukishima Kei, Yamaguchi Tadashi who will change Karasuno in the future. The heart of the story revolves around two idiots Hinata and Kageyama, who only know their sport, passionate about it like life, and from that enthusiasm give strength and motivation to teammates, break down the obstacles. barriers are holding back their true ability. Through each match, they are gradually more mature, stronger and viewers have the opportunity to be satisfied with each dramatic phase of the ball.
Karasuno Koukou VS Shiratorizawa Gakuen Koukou
At the beginning of season 2, Hinata and Kageyama faced off against Ushijama Wakatoshi (also known as Ushiwaka*) the trump card of Shiratorizawa, who is said to be the strongest in the prefecture’s high school, a member of the national team. Japan. That accidental meeting showed Ushiwaka’s view that the strong must live in a strong environment like plants and must live in good soil to grow well. Shiratorizawa is that fertile platform. Compared to Shiratorizawa and Aoba Jousai (Seijou), Karasuno is no different from a ‘concrete foundation’, stealing the ball from Ushiwaka’s hand is the challenging assertion of Hinata and Kageyama. They are the ones born from ‘that concrete foundation’, they will win and go straight to the national ring. Those words arose in Ushiwaka’s heart a limitless amusement, a laugh waiting for a fiery battle between the white eagle in the good land and the omnivorous crows from the concrete floor.
And after 25 episodes, they met in the provincial final.
The match between Karasuno and Shiratorizawa was the ultimate final of the strong. One side is likened to a white falcon, strong, proud, full of bravery. Number one in the province. On one side are the crows of the scrap area, clumsy, many loopholes. The ‘Wasted King’ is slowly resurrecting.
Taking place with 5 sets of matches, 10 episodes, only one season. Both Karasuno and Shiratorizawa make viewers’ emotions pushed to the climax, teamwork, determination, and sacrifice. Each set is a brief summary of each member’s maturing transformation, their passion – volleyball idiots.
“A very high wall stood before my eyes. What would it look like if you looked at it from the other side? What will it look like? Maybe it was a scene where I couldn’t make up my mind….
The view from the top……”
Before starting each season, Hinata told herself and the viewers, that tall wall is the net separating the two sides of the yard, with his small body he can’t see the scenery on the other side by himself. yes, but if it’s with teammates, it will be different… That’s the direction throughout the parts of Haikyuu!! ‘You may not be able to do it alone, but with six on the field the power is multiplied.’
(I won’t mention the two true idiots here, Hinata and Kageyama, I’ll just talk about the people I’m impressed by their transformation this season.)
