Haikyuu !! is an amazing volleyball sports anime that tells the story of two characters who think that they will be enemies but eventually become comrades: Hinata Shouyou and Kageyama Tobio.

“Enemies” and “Allies” become one. That sounds paradoxical, but it is the most accurate description of Hinata and Kageyama’s relationship: the strongest enemy is the strongest ally!

In volleyball, once standing on either side of the net, it is a battle. And the battle of the two takes place quickly. Hinata has failed miserably, the pain of losing the game caused him to burst into tears, but in that tears, there was also the determination to take revenge. Kageyama, though in the position of the winner, doesn’t feel satisfied at all, because there are moments when confronting each other, he realizes in Hinata’s eyes an overwhelming strength, the power that makes he felt threatened.

Just like that, in the opponent’s eyes, they are opponents. Viewers wait for a familiar plot: after the first encounter, the result will be the one who loses the winner; They both practiced non-stop and then reunited at a top match. But all speculations have turned in a completely different direction when they know that their relationship does not stop at the words “enemy”. From the opponent, Kageyama and Hinata are forced to be teammates in a situation that no one can predict: they join a high school, join a volleyball club.

Hinata’s frightening speed and power combined with Kageyama’s precise pass made them an invincible duo. In the past, there was no one ball that could maximize Hinata’s power, nor did any of the smokers keep up with Kageyama’s fast pass. The chemistry between the two matched like the next two pieces in a puzzle game.

Even though being partners, Kageyama and Hinata have always considered the enemy to be the one to overcome. It doesn’t show up in quarrels or races, but it’s the times when Kageyama and Hinata work together. Their combination is successful because they are both constantly training to catch up to their opponents, so Hinata can get a pass from Kageyama, and let Kageyama be able to make the most accurate ball to Hinata.
