The two-part Haikyu movie was announced last August. The movie should cover the highly anticipated “Nekoma vs. Karasuno” arc. Production I.G will be animating them. Check out the teaser trailer:
Haikyu anime is based on a manga by Haruichi Furudate which was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 2012 to 2020. The manga ended after 405 chapters, compiled into 45 volumes. Viz Media licensed it in English and describes the plot as:
After losing his first and last volleyball match against Tobio Kageyama, “the King of the Court,” Shoyo Hinata swears to become his rival after graduating middle school. But what happens when the guy he wants to defeat ends up being his teammate?!
Production I.G animated the anime adaptation of the Haikyu (stylized as Haikyu!!) series. Season 1 aired in 2014, followed by the sequel which started in the Fall of 2015 and finished in the Winter of 2016, with both having 25 episodes. Season 3, titled Haikyu!! Karasuno High School vs Shiratorizawa Academy had 10 episodes that aired in the Fall of 2016. Haikyu!! Riku vs Kuu OVA serves as its sequel. The latest installment of the anime Haikyuu!! To the Top aired over two cours – first in Winter 2020 and second in Fall 2020. In addition to the TV anime, the franchise also spawned multiple recap movies, OVAs, side stories, and an omake.
