Who said volleyball is just for tall people? Hinata Shouyo wanted to play volleyball since he saw the 'Little Giant' competing equally and winning over tall players in the Nationals. Unfortunately, he has never played the sport and his middle school has no men's volleyball team. He decided to form a team in his school with his friends (he definitely just dragged them) and freshmen students. In his last year, he was finally able to enter a competition. However, they were utterly defeated after their first match where Hinata meets his eternal rival Kageyama Tobio, the genius setter. He then vows to defeat him.
Fast track to High School: Hinata decides to go to Karasuno where the 'Little Giant' previously played, but is now just a mediocre team. And guess who's playing in its volleyball court? It's no other than his hated rival. The inexperienced but full of raw talent and athleticism (and by the way he's only 162cm) Hinata, and the confident, polished talent, Kageyama, fight and bicker a lot from the start but they form the greatest volleyball combination to take down stronger opponents and reach the Nationals.
"Haikyu!!" Season 3 will follow their Final match in the Miyagi Prefecture qualifiers which will decide the representative for the Nationals.
