About the Haikyuu Anime Series

“Haikyuu!!” the anime and manga were both developed by Haruichi Furudate. The story follows the Karasuno High School volleyball team as they strive to become one of the best in Japan. The protagonist, Shoyo Hinata, is a short-statured volleyball player who has high aspirations to become one of the best in Japan. He decides to join the legendary volleyball team at Karasuno High School. With the help of his new allies, especially the talented but lone Tobio Kageyama, Shoyo plans to take Karasuno to new heights.

Throughout the series, the team faces off against other tough high school squads such as Nekoma High School, Aoba Johsai High School, and Fukurodani Academy in a number of fun and thrilling matches. The cast’s off-field lives, including their relationships and hardships, are also explored in the show. The show’s dynamic characters, thrilling action sequences and heartwarming narrative all received high praise. Fans of the show are so interested that they have created artwork, costumes and even a volleyball league based on the show’s theme.

With Karasuno’s old friends and rivals Nekoma and Fukurodani present, we see Kuroo and Kenma, Bokuto and Akaashi watch as Karasuno High School faces off against Inarizaki who comes with a surprise of his own. Hinata has learned how to accept! And also ended up getting a lot of attention from Miya Atsumu and Hoshiumi Korai, as the latter pushed Hinata further in her dream of becoming a Little Giant.

Eliminations to reach the Nationals quarterfinals have increased even further as new, stronger teams and more mysterious players have appeared on the show. As Karasuno progresses, the members continue to hone their skills in hopes of winning the Championship.

For fans of the Manga that ended after 8 years of broadcast in 2020, the content of Haikyuu Season 5 might be clear. Yes, the Haikyuu manga is over. But for anime, a lot of content is yet to come. Safe to say, Haikyuu won’t end with Season 5.

The Haikyu manga officially finished at chapter 402 and with Haikyuu Season 4 only starting with Chapter 207 and stretching all the way to Chapter 292, there’s a lot of content left to adapt – maybe for Haikyuu Season 6 as well.

However in August 2022, it was revealed that only two more films would be made in the anime series. Haikyuu!! Finals is a series of films that will follow the events that occur in the anime and act as the story’s climax. The first film’s release date is slated for late 2023.

What’s the Plot of Haikyuu Season 5 Like?

What's the Plot of Haikyuu Season 5 Like?

Upcoming Haikyuu! To The Top Part 2 or Season 5 is expected to cover the events following the highly anticipated Karasuno versus Nekoma match, ‘The Dumpster Battle’. Kenma and Kuroo are seen at the end of Season 4 talking about their upcoming match. Hinata knew that it would be difficult to get Kenma involved and get him invested in a competition, as he was also somewhat of a genius. Hinata promises to give Kenma a match he will remember.

This season will also briefly shift focus from Karasuno to Fukurodani and continue the Bokuto storyline. Bokto’s explosive style of play and his prowess as the hero of Fukurodani will be explored in the upcoming Season 5. If you remember the Tokyo Training Camp that Kageyama attended in Season 4 Part 1, all the players there have had a share of the game in the upcoming season.

How they will be Karasuno’s opponents remains to be seen in the anime. Season 4 content allowed speculation for Haikyuu Season 5 to cover the remaining games of the Tokyo National Arc, but it’s certain that Haikyuu doesn’t end with Season 5.

I can’t wait to see Kageyama’s progress in helping Hinata break out of the cage Kenma put him in and the result of Hinata constantly jumping high and destroying Nekoma’s tactics. It is hoped that there will be some final rallies where Kenma shows a lot of desire to keep playing. When it’s over, fans are eager to see the honorable montage of everyone shaking hands and hugging.

Summing up what fans want to squeeze in the upcoming episodes. Even though they were excited for the whole match with Nekoma, but at certain moments everyone held their breath:

  1. When Hinata broke through Kenma’s “cage”.
  2. When Kenma thought to himself about the contradictory feelings he always had when playing video games with “don’t die”
  3. More Kuroo/Kenma flashbacks
  4. Tsukki and Yamaguchi serve/block combo
  5. Bokuto and Akaashi’s reaction to the game
  6. Hugs and high fives at the end of the game

There is also the possibility of making a Season of Nekoma’s games as they are quite long, somewhat similar to what they did with Shiratorizawa.
