ABOUT: [Vol. 1] A chance event triggered Shouyou Hinata’s love for volleyball. His club had no members, but somehow persevered and finally made it into its very first and final regular match of middle school, where it was steamrolled by Tobio Kageyama, a superstar player known as “King of the Court.”
Vowing revenge, Hinata applied to the Karasuno High School volleyball club… only to come face-to-face with his hated rival, Kageyama!
My Review:[Vol. 1-3] A really great start to a very heartfelt and passionate story!
I am so happy to be reading this series because I love the anime so so much! The story opens wonderfully, foreshadowing the beginning of something special. Matches were captivating the view with all the right moments captured.I really like the art style and felt every impact of larger or full page panels.
Foundations are laid as Karasuno slowly comes together. There’s a lot of raw emotion in just these beginning volumes, everyone has something to improve upon to be the best player and teammate they can be. I adore each character so much, especially Hinata and Nishinoya!
I could barely contain my joy as I was reading and now I want to start collecting all of the volumes. I enjoyed re-experiencing this story anew through the manga. It has reaffirmed my love for this story and team.
