Manga Review: Haikyu!! V 10 by Haruichi Furudate


May Contain Spoilers

Realizing that their game isn’t good enough to win at the Spring Tournament, Hinata wants to change how they run the freak quick attack. Instead of closing his eyes and trusting Kageyama to put the ball where he can hit it, he wants to keep his eyes open and be a more active participant in the play. Kageyama refuses to listen to him, and tells him he won’t put the ball where he can hit it anymore. It’s too close to the tournament to change their best play. The tension between the two teammates alters the flow of the entire game, and their first training camp is a disaster.

I love the never-ending battles in shounen manga, be it cooking battles, board game battles, battles to the death, or my new favorite – VOLLEYBALL battles! I still don’t understand the rules of the game, but the tension is ratcheted up so high that all I needed to know was that Karasuno has their work cut out for them if they want to progress in the Inter-High Tournament!

Manga Review: Haikyu!! Vol 3 by Haruichi Furudate,



May Contain Spoilers

This volume of Haikyu!! didn’t hold my attention as well as previous ones.  I’m not sure if it’s because the volleyball match wasn’t as high energy, or if Hinata and Kageyama trying to convince two reluctant upper classmen to rejoin the team just didn’t keep me on the edge of my seat.
