It is one of the most viewed anime that revolves around Volleyball. Haikyu is based on a manga series of the same name which has been written and compiled by popular creator Haruichi Furudate. While Haruichi was young he dreamt of playing Volleyball for his country and the Haikyu series is the anime that has given wings to his aspirations where a young determined boy named Shoyo Hinata overcomes many obstacles to live up to his dream along with the help of his other teammates specially Tobio Kageyama while playing for the Karasuno High School. The first episode was launched on the MBS channel in the year 2014 while the same was launched on the Hotstar platform for viewers outside Japan in collaboration with Viz Media.

- Haikyu’s plot revolves around our central character Shoyo Hinata who is an aspiring volleyball player hoping to play for the Karasuno High School volleyball team for the nationals. Although his appearance is of a short player he during the game is highly agile and skilled. It is due to these qualities, the commentators more often regard him as “The Little Giant”. He was one of the wing spikers in his initial school but lacked facilities where a volleyball player could harness his skills so to get better opportunities, he decided to move to Karasuno High but his then-rival Tobio Kageyama was also on the same team as him. Tobio Kageyama is one of those characters whom Shoyo aspires to defeat someday in the future but since now both of them are playing for the same team his dreams somewhat seem unrealistic. Will Shoyo Hinata and Tobiyo Kopportunitiesageyama ever face each other as rivals? It would surely be an exciting match to watch.
