What is the plot of Haikyu!!

The story centers on a Japanese high school student named Shoyo Hinata, who after watching the amazing skills of “Little Giant” on the volleyball court becomes enamored by the dynamic nature of the sport. Unfortunately, his attempt to make his debut as a volleyball regular during a middle school tournament goes to hell. However, he doesn’t give up and wants to prove that his less-than-impressive height won’t be a hindrance in the face of his strong will and perseverance.

Hinata decides to enroll in Karsuno High School, which happens to be the same school his idol “Little Giant” attended. Hinata believes this alone brings him one step closer to his goal of becoming a professional volleyball player. Hinata is disappointed to discover the school only retains a shadow of its former glory and, to make matters worse, the very prodigy, who humiliated Hinata during his middle school volleyball match is now his teammate.

Hinata is forced to put his differences with Tobio Kageyama aside if he’s to leave his mark in the realm of volleyball and prove once and for all that it’s not just the domain of the tall and strong. Hinata will have to learn what it means to be a part of a team in order to join the fierce competition to be the best in volleyball.
