it’s no secret that haikyuu’s on my top 3 anime list and all this post is going to be doing is amplifying my argument as to why exactly haikyuu’s on there.
haikyuu!! isn’t just a sports anime, it’s a cultural reset, a marvellous coming-of-age story. it’s about friendship and enmity, about winning and losing, about learning to think for the team and to work as a team.
it’s about realising that at the end of the day, the person you quarrelled with before coming to court is the same person you’ll be passing the ball to during a real game.
from an analytical point of view, it has amazing character development- from kageyama to oikawa to hinata himself—all of them develop, improve and understand themselves and the sport they play throughout the course of the anime. kageyama goes from egocentric king to well.. KING.
the characters understand themselves not just as people but as players of a team. it’s not just a game, or a match or two—it’s the passes that form your future, it’s the reason kenma leaves his video games and gets up in morning to come to the court and play. when the great kenma kozume, lover of cats can do it, you definitely should.
haikyuu!! was technically also the first anime i watched, i think?? and so it will always be on my top 3 list for sentimental reasons and also- if you should know, tsukishima was actually my first anime crush😌
haikyuu!! is also about realising that you need to attack the ball, look at the space on the other side of the court with everything you’ve got because if you don’t then that one rally you slacked off during practice is going to turn into that one rally you’ll really regret in a real game.
it’s one of my top 3 anime for reasons that are pretty evident now.
anyways, have you watched haikyuu? and if so, what are your thoughts on it? more importantly, is it on your top 3 list?
suffering from success ( i’m a haikyuu! supremacist thus this statement shouldn’t even be questioned)
