Sentai Filmworks describes the story of the first season:

Shoyo Hinata isn't a large guy, but he's got huge ambitions: to become the next big thing in high school volleyball. Unfortunately, his junior high team was trashed in their first and only match. But now that he's enrolled in a high school with a top volleyball program, things are going to be different. There's just one problem: Tobio Kageyama, whose team beat Hinata's and is already considered a star player, is attending the same school. Can a kid out of nowhere hold his own against the King of the Court? Or could the rivalry and competition actually be the best thing for both of them? Get ready for a knock-down, throw-down, ultimate showdown barrage of volleys, spikes, and blocks as two rivals face off in HAIKYU!!

Production I.G's anime adaptation of Furudate's volleyball manga premiered in April 2014. The second season of the anime premiered in October 2015, and third season premiered in October 2016. Crunchyroll streamed all three seasons as they aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks has licensed all three seasons. The company released the first season in Japanese with English subtitles on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2015.

The Haikyu!! Sainō to Sense compilation film opened in Japan on September 15, followed by the Haikyu!! Concept no Tatakai compilation film on September 29.
