Haikyuu!! is based on the manga by the same name written by Haruichi Furudate. THe series fallows the lives of a junior high school volleyball club (in Japan there are no teams, even though there are national competitions, but it is technically a club that is mostly student run). The synopsis and trailer for the second season of the series is after the break.

The story follows Shōyō Hinata, who began playing volleyball after seeing the “small giants” who played the sport when he was in elementary school. He suffers a crushing defeat in his first and last tournament in middle school at the hands of his rival Tobio Kageyama. So, Hinata joins Kurasuno High School’s volleyball team, vowing revenge against Kageyama.

However, Kageyama is also on Kurasuno’s team. The former rivals form a legendary combo with Hinata’s mobility and Kageyama’s precision ball-handling. Together, they take on the local tournaments and vow to meet Kurasuno’s fated rival school in the nationals. (courtesy of ANN)
