At the Haikyu!! Festa 2023 event, they showed a trailer and a picture that gives us a sneak peek of a new Haikyu!! movie. This movie is called “Gekijōban Haikyu!! Gomi Suteba no Kessen” (Haikyu!! the Movie: Decisive Battle at the Garbage Dump), and it’s the first part of a two-part story that continues the Haikyu!! anime series.
The trailer introduced the person in charge of the movie, Susumu Mitsunaka, who also worked on the Haikyu!! TV anime. They told us the movie will come out on February 16.
Mitsunaka is not only directing but also writing the script for this exciting movie. It’s going to show the big match between Karasuno High and Nekoma High, which fans have been eagerly waiting for. They also revealed the movie’s logo.
If you like sports anime, you’ve probably heard of Haikyu!!. It’s a famous show about high school volleyball. It’s all about two determined players, Shoyo Hinata and Tobio Kageyama, who do amazing moves on the court to win games.
Haikyu!! is known for its exciting action and interesting characters. It’s a great watch if you want to feel the thrill of sports.
In August 2022, they told us about these two new movies. The first one is about the big match between Karasuno High and Nekoma High, which is a really exciting part of the story. They also showed us the official logo for the movie.
Haikyu!! started as a manga in 2011 and ended in 2020. It became popular worldwide, and you can read it in English too. The anime started in 2014 and had several seasons. The fourth season had to be split into two parts because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Besides the anime, there were stage plays, short animated clips, and other special anime projects.
There was even a stage play that ran from August 19 to 27.
Now, let’s talk about Haikyu!! itself. It’s based on a manga from Shounen Jump, which is known for its action-packed stories. Haikyu!! is like that too, but instead of battles, it’s all about volleyball. It’s about an underdog team, Karasuno High, trying to be the best in their sport.
But what sets Haikyu!! apart is that it doesn’t rely on crazy superpowers or impossible wins. It has a well-thought-out story with good pacing. It follows Karasuno High as they compete in the world of high school volleyball.
The show also gives us a look into the players’ backgrounds, relationships, and feelings. This makes it different from many other sports anime. The way it handles losing games, which is a common theme in sports anime, is also worth mentioning. Haikyu!! does it with depth and care, making it special.
The music in the show adds a lot to the emotions of each scene, whether they are intense, funny, or sad. The opening and ending songs are also great and add to the overall experience.
Whether you’re new to sports anime or a long-time fan, Haikyu!! is a fantastic choice. While it gets compared to other sports anime like Kuroko no Basket, Haikyu!! stands out because it aims to be realistic.
Sure, there might be even better sports anime out there like Ping Pong, but give Haikyu!! a chance, and you might find yourself eagerly waiting for the next season, just like I did.
