The anime sports series "Haikyuu!!" has been hailed as the most anticipated anime series this fall with the approaching release of its third season, while Crunchyroll just announced that it will be streaming the anime's new season.
"Haikyuu!!" tops the list of the Most Anticipated Fall 2016 anime series, followed by anime titles "Natsume Yujin-Cho Go" (Natsume's Book of Friends Five) and "Sound Euphorium". The anticipation comes from the official announcement that "Haikyuu!!" will be getting a third season of its anime series adaptation. Along with the announcement, a teaser trailer of the upcoming new season was aired.
The teaser revealed that the anime series will pick up from where it ended in the second season. In the last episode of Season 2, Karasuno beats Aobajosai in a match to determine which team will be the Miyagi representative for the Spring High Tournament. The trailer showed scenes of Shiratorizawa players, hinting that the third season will focus on Karasuno's journey to meeting and hopefully beating one of Japan's powerhouse high school volleyball teams. The fans will most likely be seeing Aobajosai and the other volleyball teams go through a transition as they also vow to be stronger and beat Karasuno.
"Haikyuu!!" is a Japanese sports manga series aimed at young male readers, which was eventually given an anime adaption after unexpectedly being highly received and popular with the public. The first episode of "Haikyuu!!" aired in April 2014 and it currently has aired two seasons. The story illustrates the ups and downs of male junior high school students and their adventures as volleyball players. The story centers on the two main characters, Shoyo Hinata and Tobio Kageyama, who are members of the Karasuno High School Volleyball Club.
"Haikyuu!!" Season 3 will be airing its first episode in Japan on October 7, 2016 on TBS at 9:55 pm. It will be aired on TBS, MBS, CBC, TBC, HBC, RKB Mainichi Broadcasting, and BS-TBS channels. Aside from the enumerated channels, the new season will be streamed on Crunchyroll coinciding with the airing schedule of Japan. The online stream will be available to United States, Canada, Ireland, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Turkey, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Norway, Latin America, and South Africa
