Haikyu! Anime to End on September 21
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's October issue of Newtype magazine, which ships on Tuesday, will announce that the final episode of the Haikyu! anime will air on September 21 with the show's 25th episode.
Production I.G's anime adaptation of Haruichi Furudate's volleyball manga premiered in April. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series for North American digital and home video release and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs.
The story 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 Karasuno High School's volleyball team, vowing revenge against Kageyama.
However, Kageyama is also on Karasuno'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.
A Nintendo 3DS game adaptation is slated to ship on September 25 in Japan.
