Gr 6 Up-Shoyo Hinata is a volleyball player who, despite his short stature, has the athleticism, ambition, and drive of the taller players he aims to defeat. After watching a smaller player known as the Little Giant compete with players a foot taller, Hinata is inspired to become a great player. He starts a volleyball club in his middle school and is outmatched and beaten by a team led by Tobio Kageyama; a 5'11" spiker derisively referred to as the "King of the Court" and a "diva." Undeterred by the loss, Hinata vows to "break through the wall" and beat Kageyama (whom he assumes will be attending a different high school). When Hinata and Kageyama end up at the same school as teammates, Hinata's focus changes from defeat to acceptance. With dramatic angles, typical manga-style artwork depicts scenes of thrilling action. This fast-paced, exciting manga is a story of sportsmanship, perseverance, and, above all, belief in oneself. VERDICT Recommended for fans of graphic novels and sports manga.-Tamela Chambers, Chicago Public Schools

Expected/Actual Arrival: July 5, 2016
I was so happy when I was able to get the actual book instead of reading it online. This is a great series and after I watched the anime I immediately checked if there was a manga about it and I was very happy to see that there was. This is one of my favorite series because the person who actually made Haikyuu!! Was into horror and comedy making this volume have funny parts and turning around to have a more ‘scary’ part. I would recommend this to anybody who loves comedy because it is almost full of it, people who have seen the anime, and people who like volleyball in general.
I enjoyed the introduction to high school boys volleyball club antics as well as the heartfelt story of crushed dreams and a new attempt to tackle those dreams after a high school debut. The many characters, from the senior members like the captain to the bickering first years, including the two leads, but also the glasses wearing snarky Tsukishima, there is much to love. Sure, not every character may be to someone's liking but I think they have excellent chemistry that is only bound to deepen further.
Viz continues to translate and letter the sound effects, honorifics are kept as well, making for an easy to read volume. There were no color pages or extras beyond extra sketches and character profiles mixed into chapters.

I wasn’t too sure what to expect of this, other than that it’s a shonen sports manga, about volleyball.Read more
