Kageyama is standing to the left, his hand raised to the sky, visible from behind. A gift from the Italian team Ali Roma, the setter, is sporting his number 20 jersey. Hinata, who is wearing his dark uniform, can be seen standing to his side. Everyone’s favorite striker, wearing the number 21 on his shirt, appears prepared to compete at the goal in Brazil with his Asas Sao Paulo colleagues.

Naturally, manga readers are already aware of these appearances because Haikyuu followed these youngsters on their path to professional sports. We’ll just have to wait until the Haikyuu FINAL release date in theaters to see whether the anime films will cover this final arc and others. In other words, starting the following year, you will be able to follow Karasuno’s special tag team!

How to get started with the Haikyuu anime and manga

The coming-of-age sports manga Haikyuu!! was created by Haruichi Furudate. Shoyo Hinata, a junior high school student, develops an interest in volleyball after watching the Karasuno High School volleyball team compete in Nationals on television. Despite being short, Hinata aspires to play volleyball like Karasuno’s skilled wing spiker “The Little Giant,” who is also of comparable height to Hinata. The difficulties in his volleyball journey come from the fact that his junior high school does not have a male volleyball team. Therefore he must learn the sport from the female volleyball team at his school and the community volleyball team.

In high school, Kageyama and Hinata begin to compete against one another. Hinata persuades his friends to join the squad in his final year of junior high school so he can play in his only volleyball competition. Unfortunately, a squad from another school that featured excellent setter Tobio Kageyama upset the team.

However, the two wind up going to Karasuno High School together, where they join the volleyball team and develop into a formidable setter and spiker combination. The voyage to Nationals of the Karasuno volleyball squad is the subject of Haikyuu!!
