"Even though we use the English word "volleyball" in Japan, the official name for the sport in Japanese is haikyu. Soccer is shukyu. Basketball is rokyu. Baseball is...wait a minute. The official name is yakyu, but that's what we actually call it! So if this were a baseball manga, it would've just been called Yakyu!! I only realized that after I started the series... The fact that it made me cringe is a secret, okay? Sometimes people tell me that naming a volleyball manga "Volleyball!!" is kinda obvious. I agree with them!"
Ever since he saw the legendary player known as the "Little Giant" compete at the national volleyball finals, Shoyo Hinata has been aiming to be the best volleyball player ever! He decides to join the team at the high school the Little Giant went to-and then surpass him. Who says you need to be tall to play volleyball when you can jump higher than anyone else?
After proving themselves to be the ultimate combination in their practice match against Kei Tsukishima, Kageyama and Hinata are finally allowed to join the club! Hinata’s true power—to perfectly time his spikes with his eyes closed—is awakened, and nothing can seem to stop this crazy setter-spiker duo. Now their skills are about to be put to the test at a practice game against one of Kageyama’s former teammates from middle school, Tohru Oikawa.
