That was solid and one of the more better openers I've seen. Haven't watched seen much sports anime but I'm going to watch this one for sure. The animation was so amazing and so many GAR moments for the first episode. Hopefully it continues to be this great.

haha so true, I keep calling it koroko no volley

great episode though. My heart was broken when sho missed that last shot, I mean he literally almost killed himself to try and make an impossible play.

I have yet to watch KnB. Usually I'm not that into sports, but I did watch Prince of Tennis, read Whistle! and read a great deal of Eyeshield 21. So far this reminds me mostly of Whistle! because they both are called "Sho" and have to deal with being short. But for me this is quickly becoming it's own thing and I can't wait to see more.

Not bad. A tad melodramatic once or twice, but it's got style and the animation looks like it fits the game.

The character designs also look great while also being very expressive.

But more importantly, how'd they get up there...

To the uncertain KnB fans: definitely give it a few more eps; the first is always the set up. The tone may differ with the contrasting protagonists, but Haikyuu!! absolutely prevails as a choice feel-good sports series among the rest (all I seem to read any more is sports manga, how did this happen...). If you like the theme of camaraderie and evolving as a team, spiced with a dash of comedy, I don't think it'll disappoint. :)

Anyway, I'm pretty pleased with this first ep, biased as I may be. I was admittedly holding my breath a bit since it's not uncommon for animated adaptions to go sour, but it's basically spot on with the first chapter. Looking forward to following this and meeting the Karasuno senpai.

I like Kuroko as a MC more. But they are very much different types of people. So they will appeal to different people.

Episode 1

He's short, but his fighting spirit is off much taller than that. Sho's squad got bulldozed by Kageyama's team, and he is going all out in his training to someday get his revenge. Except that now, they are teammates going to the same school. This show is looking pretty good.

Never watched K / Ball However for a sports anime it impressed right away just with the sheer will of Hinata being small and having to start a middle school volleyball team then having to go up against Kageyama "King of the Court" But then Hinata gets to Karasuno High School and surprise! I like it and dont underestimate this anime has lots of potential!


BTW Great OP and ED songs!

"Imagination" by Spyair

"Tenchi Gaeshi" by NICO Touches the Walls

First show premiere this season to get a second watch from me, and I liked it just as much the second time as the first.

If there is a smidgen of romance mixed in, I'll be super happy.

The OP/ED themes don't really do a lot for me, but the OST was excellent.

Definitely picking this one up, and it was not at all on my radar going in to the season.
