This year's 16th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Saturday that the television anime of Haruichi Furudate's Haikyu!! volleyball manga will spawn two compilation movies this fall. The films are titled Haikyu!! Sainō to Sense (Haikyu!! Genius and Sense) and Haikyu!! Concept no Tatakai (Haikyu!! Battle of Concepts). The first movie will portray the match against Aobajōsai High School from the second season, and the second movie will cover the match against Shiratorizawa Academy portrayed in the third and latest season.

Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired and Sentai Filmworks licensed and released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in June and August 2015.
