Karasuno’s ‘Fallen Crows’ are ready to take their final flight and give a worthy conclusion to the Haikyu!! anime series.
The anime’s season 4 came out in 2020, the same year Haruichi Furudate ended the manga. Unpredictable Covid conditions halted the production of the anime’s later installments for an uncertain period.
Luckily it seems like the team’s back on it as the franchise has announced the Haikyu!! anime will conclude with a two-part film series.
TOHO Animation’s trailer portrays Hinata and Kageyama’s journey from the start through manga panels and anime scenes. It shows the moment when Karasuno’s Little Giant inspires Shoyo to pursue volleyball and to become a part of the team.
The trailer proceeds to show Shoyo and Tobio’s fateful encounter as opponents during a junior high match.
Throwing us into a pit of emotions, the video composes the team’s highs and lows, making us realize that the boys have come a long way.
As we finish up with their win against Inarizaki, we go back into the past, to the time when Karasuno and Nekoma had a practice match for the first time.
During the previous arcs, the age-old rival teams have challenged each other multiple times, promising to fight each other at the nationals. The dream came true at last when Karasuno beat Inarizaki and made their way up to compete with Nekoma.
The upcoming films will incorporate Nekoma’s battle first and then the consecutive ones, if there are any. I can’t tell you how many matches Karasuno will be playing in the final films because that will give away the biggest spoiler of all!
At last, the world of high school volleyball will witness the ‘Trash Can Battle’ after years. Not only that, this will be a battle of wits and ideologies crashing against each other on the court.
Will Shoyo finally ignite the fire of passion inside Kenma in this match? We don’t know that yet, but one thing that I can assure you about is that this match will be worth the wait.
