“Haikyuu!! ” features beautifully animated and lengthy volleyball matches, shonen-style storylines, and an assortment of interesting characters that make it a well-loved sports anime. A small middle schooler named Shoyo Hinata from Karasuno High falls in love with volleyball after watching the school play on T.V., only to realize no one else in his school is interested in volleyball, either. His friends have convinced him to form a team by the end of his middle school career to compete in a tournament. However, the redhead Hinata team loses despite Hinata’s impressive vertical jump to Tobio Kageyama and his team, who have been named “The King of the Court.”
Her application to Karasuno High is accepted. When he joins the volleyball team, he is surprised that his new rival, Kageyama, is also a team member. A new volleyball team is being formed at the school, and these two new players together — despite their instant opposition — seem to have a killer combo that may lead to their team being recognized again. Throughout the show’s four seasons, the exhibition presents new players, sets up training camps, and has the teams participate in intense competitions that test their mettle and their relationships – and inspire the sentiments that only thrilling sports moments can evoke.
Haikyuu Season 5 Release Date
“Haikyuu!! ” was first released in 2014, then in 2015, and then in 2016. they separated the third and fourth seasons by an extended period, and Crunchyroll reports that they didn’t announce the fourth season until late 2018. Split into two sections (or cours), the episode aired from January to April and then October to December. There has been no word yet from Production I.G. on whether Season 5 will be available on Crunchyroll since the last episode aired several months ago.
The English translation of Haikyu! I aired on Crunchyroll in December following the last episode. This seems to imply they expect a fifth season to arrive at some point, as their Twitter note thanks to the “anime team” for their hard work. Fans are also concerned about another delay, considering how long the show was on hiatus between the third and fourth seasons. We noted in Monsters & Critics that experts believe earlier delays resulted from internal factors, such as employees completing other projects.
The December 2018 renewal and the January 2020 airdate of Season 4 indicate that the show follows a one-year production cycle. This means that whenever Season 5 is announced, the show will probably return 12-13 months later (possibly in a split-course format). Fans likely won’t be happy with that, but the anime theme song was played during the volleyball competition in Tokyo as part of the Olympics. Despite its age, the property remains valuable.
Haikyuu Season 5 Cast
The current cast of “Haikyuu!!” includes Ayumu Murase as Hinata, Kaito Ishikawa as Kageyama, Yu Hayashi as Ryunosuke Tanaka, Satoshi Hino as team captain Daichi Sawamura, Miyu Irino as Koshi Sugawara, Koki Uchiyama as Kei Tsukishima, Sôma Saitô as Tadashi Yamaguchi, Nobuhiko Okamoto as Yu Nishinoya, Yoshimasa Hosoya as Asahi Azumane, and Hiroshi Kamiya as adviser Ittetsu Takeda. As with Hinata and Kageyama, most are volleyball players.
There is no English dub for the fourth season of the series, Haikyuu!! To the Top. The English cast for the first three seasons includes Bryson Bagua as Hinata, Scott Gibbs as Kageyama, Greg Cote as Tanaka, Justin Duran as Sawamura, Adam Gibbs as Sugawara, Leraldo Anzaldua as Tsukishima, Cameron Bautsch as Yamaguchi, Greg Ayres as Nishinoya, Orlanders Jones as Azumane, and Gareth West as Takeda.
It is unlikely that any changes will be made to the cast of the fifth season.
Haikyuu Season 5 Plot
A manga created by Haruichi Furudate, Haikyuu! ! is based on a manga that ended in 2020 with Chapter 402 and Volume 45 (which is not yet translated into English). Despite a triumphant and emotional end to Season 4 with Chapter 292, there is still plenty to explore in the upcoming seasons.
As described in the manga, the team members will participate in some high-stakes matches, including Nekoma vs. Karasuno at the garbage dump. On the other hand, there are several beautifully drawn volleyballs on the way. Hinata will even get the opportunity to meet the player who inspired him at the beginning of all this, “the Little Giant.”
Fans may be in for a big surprise if the anime follows the manga to the end in Season 6 and maybe even a Season 7 – the manga jumps in time and location and even features a separate but related sport.
