Haikyuu: A Quick Recap
Inspired after watching a volleyball ace nicknamed “Little Giant” in action, small Shouyou Hinata revives the volleyball club at his middle school. The newly-formed team even makes it to a tournament; however, their first match turns out to be their last when they are brutally squashed by the “King of the Court,” Tobio Kageyama. Hinata vows to surpass Kageyama, and so after graduating from middle school, he joins Karasuno High School’s volleyball team—only to find that his sworn rival, Kageyama, is now his teammate.
Thanks to his short height, Hinata struggles to find his role on the team, even with his superior jumping power. Surprisingly, Kageyama has his own problems that only Hinata can help with, and learning to work together appears to be the only way for the team to be successful.
Haikyuu Season 5: Will It Ever Happen?
Haikyuu Season 5 Release Date
Haikyuu has kept fans entertained since 2012, and the anime blew up a few years later. The finale on Haikyuu Season 4 got a high praise. Even though Production I.G did get off to a rough start with its brand new animation style, the fandom got used to it quickly.
As of today, we have little to no information for Haikyuu Season 5. Production I.G has not given any official update on Haikyuu ever since the fourth season ended. The anime’s most recent season was officially announced at Jump Fest 2019, so there is hope a similar announcement will happen this year.
We do expect that Haikyuu Season 5 will be released in late 2021 or mid 2022. But before then, if you miss the Karasuno boys, let’s just re-watch the first until fourth season while we wait for Haikyuu Season 5. We will keep you updated, so don’t worry!
