This year's 28th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing three more cast members on Monday for the Haikyu!! Sainō to Sense (Haikyu!! Genius and Sense) compilation film. The cast members are all members of Aobajōsai High's volleyball team.

  • Mutsuki Iwanaka as Motomu Sawauchi
  • Wataru Hatano as Kaneo Yuda
  • Daisuke Nakamura as Heisuke Shido

The film, the first of a new two-part compilation film project, will include new scenes portraying what happens after the match with Aobajōsai High.

Haikyu!! Sainō to Sense will open in Japan on September 15. The second film, titled Haikyu!! Concept no Tatakai (Haikyu!! Battle of Concepts), will open on September 29. Each film will have a two-week limited screening.

Spyair's "I'm a Believer" song from the second season of the television anime series will serve as the theme song for Haikyu!! Sainō to Sense, and Burnout Syndrome's "Hikariare" song from the third season will serve as the theme song for Haikyu!! Concept no Tatakai.

The first movie will portray the match against Aobajōsai High School from the second season. The second movie will cover the match against Shiratorizawa Academy portrayed in the third and latest season.
