Haikyuu Episodes 22 + 23


Review Episode 22: I'm really thinking these people are taking Volleyball just a touch too seriously (though I guess that is how you get good at things and I probably take other things just as seriously - I just can't see the point of hitting a ball over a net). Still, the amount of angst … Continue reading Haikyuu Episodes 22 + 23

Haikyuu Episodes 20 + 21


Review Episode 20: This episode is fairly tense. The game is every bit as hard as expected and while most of the characters keep trying to bring their spirits back up, Kageyama seems to hit a wall. Not surprising really for a perfectionist, control-freak to berate himself for what he perceives as poor performance, but … Continue reading Haikyuu Episodes 20 + 21

Haikyuu Episodes 18 + 19


Review Episode 18: Episode 18 is what I would normally hate from a sport anime and yet I found it incredibly charming. We spend the whole episode finishing the game but the comments from the stands, the individual character moments, and just the emotion in the game kept the whole thing driving forward and it … Continue reading Haikyuu Episodes 18 + 19

Haikyuu Episodes 12 + 13


Review Episode 12: This is probably my favourite episode so far and that is odd given its pretty much all focussed on the game. I think it's because the opponents team are acting like a mirror image of Karasuno and the contrast between the two even while there are such glaring similarities is kind of … Continue reading Haikyuu Episodes 12 + 13

Haikyuu Episodes 10 + 11


Review Episode 10: Well, we concluded the game and the all high school team lost due to poor receives, which isn't really a news flash at this point but I guess points where the next lot of training is going to go. But, Hinata and Kageyama got to show off their weird combo and impressed … Continue reading Haikyuu Episodes 10 + 11

Haikyuu Kurusu Team

Review Episode 6: Seriously, how is this team not the antagonist of the series? Just look at that picture of them attempting to intimidate the other players. Though Hinata's insecurity does lead to some interesting daydreams. The issue being that about half the time I'd love to see that actually happen to him. Which is … Continue reading Haikyuu Episodes 6 + 7

Haikyuu Episodes 4 + 5


Review Episode 4: Well we finally get to the long awaited match and I must admit the relationship between Kageyama and Hinata is less annoying now though still a bit rocky at times. I think they kind of laboured on about why Kageyama was called the king and how is old team reacted i nthe … Continue reading Haikyuu Episodes 4 + 5

Haikyuu Episode 3


Review: I guess that is one way to make you like characters that are fairly unlikable; introduce characters who are even harder to like. On that note though, the petty bickering between the main pair gave way this week to the beginnings of a sort of grudging understanding between Hinata and Kageyama. Hinata is obviously … Continue reading Haikyuu Episode 3

Haikyuu! First Impressions


Okay, so this anime has been recommended to me almost 50,000 times at this point so I figured given I have run out of shows from Autumn 2016 that I have access to and any desire to watch now was a good time to try the first episode of this. First Impressions The first 7 … Continue reading Haikyuu! First Impressions
