Storyline

Hinata Shouyou, a short middle school student, gained a sudden love of volleyball after watching a national championship match on TV. Determined to become like the championship's star player, a short boy nicknamed "the small giant", Shouyou joined his school's volleyball club. Unfortunately, he was the only member and the club didn't have so much as a place to practice. He didn't let that deter him, however, and, upon finally acquiring 5 other players in his final year, was able to compete in an actual competition - only for his team to be unlucky enough to face the championship favorite and its star player, Kageyama Tobio, called "the king of the court", in the first round. Though Shouyou's team suffers a crushing defeat, he vows to become better and eventually surpass Kageyama. Now Shouyou is starting his first year in high school - the very one he had first watched in the national championships. He's going to join the volleyball team, practice constantly, and wipe the floor with ... Written by DevonHawk~

Excellent Sports Anime
8 January 2018 | by mayank09876See all my reviews

Really enjoyed this well-made anime on Volleyball, I didn't know much about the sports and its rules, didn't realize so much strategy went into it and how important team play is. The plot is your typical shounen sports stereotypes, an underdog who excels with determination, along the way he makes friends and each one in the team is a standout specialist. The anime is well paced and keeps thing exciting all throughout, there is lots of humor to give you big laughs. The storytelling utilizes the full spectrum of emotions from losses to win, from giving up to never giving in, from timidity to overconfident, from solo play to teamwork, it covers each aspect of the gameplay with relevant emotions. Another good side to the anime is the realistic game play, no over the board plays and super moves. The characters are all likable, one of the few anime without having any evil guy in it.

The anime itself is really good, got great art and colors. Did feel the music could have been better, nothing of it stands out in mind after a week of watching the anime.

It was enjoyable enough for Binge-watch, so hopefully, you get the idea. Season 1 & 2 both were great, I am looking forward to Season 3 getting dubbed.
