Once called a fallen powerhouse and known as “Flightless Crows,” Karasuno High School has finally taken flight at nationals. With a comprehensive performance against Tsubakihara Academy in their first match, the team is now facing its toughest opponent yet: the runners-up of the last Spring Tournament, Inarizaki High School. Furthermore, dealing with the formidable twin Miya brothers only makes things more difficult for Karasuno.
As soon as the match begins, Karasuno is overwhelmed by all the noise and jeers from the supporters of Inarizaki High but rekindles its strength thanks to its own loyal fans. Karasuno also gains some momentum by utilizing an attack centered on Shouyou Hinata, but the eccentric play of Atsumu and Osamu Miya delivers an unexpected blow that leaves their opponent astounded.
Things are bound to get intense as the match progresses between these two teams. Will Karasuno be able to defeat Inarizaki High and overcome the hurdles that threaten its pursuit to the top?

It’s normal that the series would start immediately with some action moments, seeing how it ended the previous one, and I really loved to have an important game right from the start.

As always, the games in Haikyuu are extremely exciting and this is what made me love this series. In this season in particular they also added an ulterior layer to them with the addition of the cheer squad and the impact they can have on the game and on the players.
I also really appreciated that we can start to see the results of the training that our protagonists did at the beginning of the previous season.

This whole season is focused on the game between Karasuno and Inarizaki. It really got me excited and the final stages of it are really spectacular!
We can also see Nekoma in action in this series and the parts dedicated to it were also really good.

I can’t wait for the next season! It seems that the next game will be one of those I am waiting for forever!
