Haikyuu!!- How good is the 3rd season?

Haikyuu’s 3rd season has been too exciting that fans often call it Hypeuu!!


The manga is written by Haruichi Furudate and is published by Shueisha as weekly in the Shonen Jump magazine. The anime is produced by Production I.G.

The 2nd season had 25 seasons and showed the anime’s potential as one of the bests ever. We had reviewed the anime back (Haikyuu!!-Review) and were impressed by it. The season showed how Karasuno progressed learning new techniques and getting better in the basics. The season ended with Karasuno High School defeating Aoba Jōsai in the semi-finals of the Spring High Tournament.

The 3rd season, named  Haikyuu!!: Karasuno Koukou VS Shiratorizawa Gakuen Koukou, as the name implies is about the finals of Karasuno High School in the Spring High Tournament against Shiratorizawa Academy. The season has only 10 episodes and is built around the finals only.

The season began with the introduction of players from Karasuno and Shiratorizawa. Then the much-awaited match began! With Ushijima scoring a killer spike off of Nishinoya, the libero of Karasuno using his cannon of a left arm winning the set comfortably. The season proceeds further with both teams playing strong with determination and never seen flair. Yet they have troubles in stopping Ushijima, as  Tsukishima blooms to rescue the team by directing Ushijima towards Nishinoya. Nishinoya starts receiving the spikes that troubled them in the first set.His intelligence overwhelms everyone in the court as he blocks Ushijima’s spike cleanly, embracing the game completely.Karasuno wins the second set and keep pushing harder.

The game keeps on getting better with every point. Each point gives us an edge of the seat experience and serves as a hope note, “Mobbing”- attacking a prime predator as a flock when for survival. The series has always portrayed Karasuno as a “murder of crows” and Ushijima, a Bald Eagle. This season has proved that Haikyuu!! is most certainly the best sports anime of all times with the minor set back being only 10 episodes long.
