The tenth anniversary of the fast-paced sports anime known as Haikyuu, arguably one of the biggest sports anime on the scene today, has arrived and while a new anime series or movie has yet to be revealed, the franchise is planning plenty of events to celebrate the major event. Now, it looks like a new event to help celebrate the franchise will see some of the main characters drawn in a whole new way.
Scheduled for May 27 to June 26, an event will be held in Tokyo that will see the production of new merchandise and imagery that will paint Haikyu’s volleyball players in a whole new way:
The official description for this upcoming event reads:
“A collaboration event between” Haikyu!! “and Ninja Town has been decided! Realistic illustrations of the members of each high school who came to Ninja Town and mini-character illustrations from original costumes that imagined the dumpling stadium in the park are now available! You can enjoy desserts and foods with the pattern of Hinata and others, which are limited to collaboration illustrations, and mini-games where you can always get a free gift. »
If you are unaware of the history of HaikyuuThe official description for the final season of the anime adaptation reads:
“Once again, determination and teamwork helped the Karasuno High School Volleyball Team qualify for the upcoming National Championships. Then, just when everything starts to gel, the team is temporarily separated as two members are invited to attend special training camps, with Kageyama attending the prestigious All-Japan camp and Tsukishima invited to a special camp for the early years at Miyagi. As the rest of Karasuno’s team stubbornly continues their own practice matches, Hinata feels left behind. His bold solution, crashing rookie boot camp, catches everyone off guard, but he somehow manages to fight his way through to be allowed to stay… even if he only does look askance. And this shift in perspective may be just what Hinata needs to take her game to the next level in HAIKYU!! – AT THE TOP !”
