I feel like he should be a mix of the two. Know when to relent, but also push his teammates to be better and hit his harder tosses. They might be harder to hit, but they're also harder to receive on the other side.

If it's harder for the spiker to hit it, it's going to be easier for the other team to receive it. If Kageyama can put the ball in the perfect position for the spiker, the spiker can more easily make his own adjustments to slam it where he wants to, rather than wasting half his effort on just trying to get to the toss.

Thats not necessarily true. You remember when Oikawa was training with Kindaichi and Kindaichi said that the ball was hard to hit but Oikawa tells him to keep trying because his true hit zone is about one ball length away. Thats something even the spiker himself didn't realize. The ability to bring out the best out of each spiker is the setters job.

I get what you're saying, but I'll stand by what Ukai quoted from his grandfather: "Nothing beats a set that's easy for the spiker to hit."

Being a manga reader I'm enjoying this new season although I have to say I think the manga covered it better. Trying to cram so much into each episode means they have to make choices but overall I'd say they picked up on the most important parts.

I'm not a fan of the new designs really, I thought the previous ones were fine, maybe it's just because I'm so used to them and I'll adapt eventually.

I think Kageyama picked up on that comment about Tsukki as those two have never got on since the beginning and Tsukki used to be pretty lazy in his approach to practice. We'll see a change in the future.

I'm looking forward to seeing just how much of the story they put into these upcoming episodes, the practice and particularly the tournament matches were amazing to read and I really hope they don't stint out and cut them too short.

the practice game against Date Tech (minus that earworm of a chant, thank goodness)


First of all, "GO GO LET'S GO LET'S GO DATEKO!" is iconic.
Second of all, it's a practice match; of course they wouldn't have the cheer squad come with them.

I know, I was making a (lame) joke. Smile I hear their chant in my head every single time someone mentions the school! (And sometimes just randomly? I may have a problem.)

Now all I can picture is the cheer squad following the team around everywhere they go in daily life: the Date boys go into a ramen shop and the cheer squad chants their support as the boys try to decide what to order. Very Happy Laughing Razz

I recently heard the Date cheer in another anime with another school name. I think it was in Try Knights, but I'm not sure (and I'm not wading into that mess again to find out). I just remember it jerking me bolt upright when I heard it, and I had to pause and go find the Date cheer on YT to compare and confirm I wasn't imagining it. Very Happy
