Haikyuu!! – The Rare Minimalistic Gem, Brimming with Intesity and Thrill

All Things Come to Rest; The Good or The Bad

After eight long years, the adventures of Hinata Shoyo and Kageyama Tobio have come to an end. Last night, Twitter was taken to storm in the Philippines and other countries with #ThankYouHaikyuu after, Haruichi Furudate released the last and final chapter of his popular manga “Haikyuu!!”

Haikyuu was adapted into an anime in 2014 with an exceptional and minimalistic animation art style. The anime is still going on with the broadcast of 1st part in Jan 2020, subsequently to be followed by the 2nd part in October 2020 of the 4th season. Despite being a sports anime which conventionally lacks the usual vicarious feel drawn out of natural sports, the popularity of Haikyuu!!, Haikyuu!! 2nd Season, Haikyuu!! Karasuno High VS Shiratorizawa Academy and Haikyuu!! To The Top 1st part stand out in every possible way.

The sheer writing is enough to hook you up with the animation. But, The art style gives a boost to the series and a tight competition to writing.
Probing the writing style of Haruichi, It’s a known fact that simpler the idea, better the communication and Haikyuu! is a complete resemblance of the aforementioned statement. Our protagonist Hinata Shoyo, after being inspired by the volleyball ace of Karasuno High nicknamed Little Gaint’s action at nationals, decided to be just like him. However, his junior high lacks the volleyball club for men, leaving him with no choice but to train alone or join the girls’ volleyball team. In spite of constant turn downs, teasings out of short-stature, and “Just one more” Hinata mostly used to train himself alone.

Later, Hinata comprises a team of 1st years students and two of his friends from the soccer club to play a tournament. The team was brutally crushed by Kageyama Tobio but Hinata. His consistency to chase his goal remains and bloomed. Hinata decided to pursue his dream with Karasuno High alongside his sworn rival Kageyama Tobio. However, After all these years ‘The Crows’ are now fallen and the journey of Hinata’s dream to play and beat the opponent in the same court as ‘Little Gaint’ begins.
