When referring to the best sports manga, it’s obvious that Haikyuu’s name makes the list. Hinata Shoyo, Tobio Kageyama, Karasuno’s team and their opponents delivered epic matches throughout the manga. We were able to closely observe their progress until the end.
This year the Haikyuu franchise celebrates its 10and anniversary and to mark the occasion, beautiful surprises await the fandom.
A staple of sports manga
Created in 2012, the Haikyuu manga tells the story of young Hinata Shoyo. This small boy is passionate about volleyball and dreams of challenging the best players in the country. On the other hand, in a sport where height is an asset, he is at a disadvantage. But that’s not what will discourage this young man. Although he is small, Hinata has an amazing jumping ability and it allows him to challenge anyone in the air. Once in high school, he decides to join Karasuno’s volleyball team.
If Hinata chose to join this team, it is because the player nicknamed the little giant was a member. It was after watching one of his matches on TV that he started playing volleyball. For his first day, he crosses paths with Tobio Kageyama, a volleyball genius he has faced before. The latter had beaten him soundly in college. He didn’t expect to see him again anytime soon, and who moreover was on the same team.
