Haikyu!! Volleyball Anime's 1st Promo Streamed

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Story of 2 rivals turned volleyball teammates to premiere in April

The official website for Production I.G's anime adaptation of Haruichi Furudate's Haikyu!! volleyball manga added the first promotional video on Tuesday.

The story of the original manga follows Shōyō Hinata (voiced by Ayumu Murase), who began playing volleyball after seeing the "small giants" who played the sport when he was in elementary school. He suffers a crushing defeat in his first and last tournament in middle school at the hands of his rival Tobio Kageyama (Kaito Ishikawa). So, Hinata joins Kurasuno High School's volleyball team, vowing revenge against Kageyama.

However, Kageyama is also on Kurasuno's team. The former rivals form a legendary combo with Hinata's mobility and Kageyama's precision ball-handling. Together, they take on the local tournaments and vow to meet Kurasuno's fated rival school in the nationals.

The Haikyu!! anime will premiere on Japanese television in April.
