Haikyuu’s third season abruptly ended at a cliffhanger. With the release of these OVAs in Japan, fans of the show were relieved to see the continuation of the series.
The OVAs revolve around Nekoma High School, Fukurodani Academy, Nohebi Academy, and Itachiyama Academy duking it out on the court for their spot in the Nationals.
The OVA “Land Vs Sky” was absolutely amazing. I personally think that the animation for the OVA is much more mesmerising than S4 (at the moment). This small arc was one of my favourite side stories from Haikyuu so seeing it animated was such a blessing! pic.twitter.com/zxaQppStga— 🌺 (@todokugou) November 30, 2019
