I Haven’t watched Any Anime

Naruto. One Piece. Attack of Titans. Bleach. Hunter X Hunter.
and a lot lot more.

I used to listen to these names from my friends right from school. Though my elder brother used to watch them, the only anime I watched was Dragon Ball Z during Cartoon Network days. But…

I have watched Haikyuu!! and I loveeee it. I have been revisiting the scenes/episodes multiple times😄

What exactly is Anime?

Anime is hand-drawn and computer-generated animation originating from Japan. (all anime shows are cartoons, but not all cartoons are anime.)

And, what is Haikyuu About?

Haikyuu is about a Karasuno’s high school volleyball clubs journey from the bottom to the top and captures the metamorphosis of various characters (and Hinata Shoya in particular)

How it Started

I enrolled with a coach on FITTR for the #GetShredded goal for 2022 in June and to have a hook that wakes me up early in the morning (#RGV), I started watching Haikyuu! after a recommendation from a colleague.

The series has 85 episodes in total spread over 4 seasons.

Why I love it

  1. A sports anime and I naturally gravitated towards it.
  2. A perfect underdog story. Characters alone and together defying all odds. Evolving through the episode. Each episode moved me.
  3. It doesn’t focus on a single characters. Though the pace might seem slower while covering other characters, the payoff is incredible.

Favorite Moments

  1. Hinata challenging Ushijima. YOUTUBE
  2. Tsukki having his moment after blocking Ushijima. YOUTUBE
  3. the characters uttering “mo ikai”(one more) in intense scenes.
  4. the episode of Hinata going to training camp uninvited. YOUTUBE
  5. Hinata’s view from the summit. YOUTUBE
  6. Season 1 conclusion where characters are taking in the results.

What Next?

  1. Haikyuu season 5 is coming as a 2 part movie in the later part of 2023. can’t be more excited 😀
  2. I started watching other anime
    Kuroko’s Basketball and Baki which didn’t keep me hooked
