Haikyuu Plot (season 1- 3)

Haikyuu Season 1

Haikyuu season 1 starts with a boy named Hinata Shoyou who love volleyball and looks up to a player well known as The Little Giant. Hinata is very passionate about volleyball and loves the sport.

He lacks proper training as his school is not focused on volleyball. He makes a temporary volleyball team with his friends who don’t play volleyball so that he can participate in the inter-school volleyball tournament.

Hinata who is a fairly short player for volleyball compensates for his height with his good stamina and leg strength. Although he is not very tall he can jump very high as compared to the other players of his age.

Hinata clashes against a guy called Tomio Kageyama who is known as the volleyball prodigy since his junior high.

The plot starts with the match of Hinata’s inexperienced team playing against the really strong team of Kageyama which was more or less a one-sided match. Hinata calls out Kageyama after the match and vows to himself that one day he will defeat Kageyama.

After Junior High, both Kageyama and Hinata end up in the same school Karasuno High. Later, it becomes complicated as they find out they are in the same team. They were supposed to be rivals but now they have to play together.

Karasuno High School is known as the ‘fallen champions’ or ‘flightless crows’ these days. Things will soon start to change as they are going to get some of the most talented and passionate rookies Kageyama and Hinata in their team.

Haikyuu Season 2

In season 2 the anime revolves around the training in Tokyo summer camp of different high schools to prepare them for their volleyball games. Hinata and Kageyama have scored really poor marks in exams. As a result, they didn’t get permission to attend the summer camp. But somehow the school permitted them to roll on. Soon both of them join the team at the training center.

All the teams attending the practice session were top notch. It’s like- Karasuno was the weakest team. But you know- ” Practice makes a man perfect”. Each member of the Karasuno develops or flourish skills.

Besides this, Hinata and Kageyama improve their quick attack. All the other teams also help each other to improve. The last day of the training session ends with barbeque feast.

Obviously, after that Karasuno was not in the list of weak teams. They enter in winter cup, and this time no matter what, they have to win. So, yeah they defeat Aobajohsai and advances to finals.

Haikyuu Season 3 is the result of the other 2 seasons. All the hard work they did, all the failure they face and this they come back with- ” Crow with properly functioning wings”. They were no longer can be called- “crow without wings.” But they were against Shiratorizawa.

To honest, it feels like their ace- Wakatoshi Ushijima was on whole new level. His spikes were like the- Unstoppable bullet.

But our crows don’t know when to give up. Each player, I mean each and every player give his everything in order to fight Shiratorizawa. And guess what? Hinata’s final spike led Karasuno to victory against Shiratorizawa.
