Haikyuu, an anime that single-handedly increased the number of volleyball players in Japanese schools, now awaits a new season!
Season 5 of Haikyuu is one of the most anticipated sports anime installments after its fourth season ended in December 2020. The show hasn’t been renewed yet, but we’re sure it will get an official announcement soon.
Seasons 1, 2, and 3 lead up to the Karasuno High School volleyball team’s events and their journey to finally get to the Nationals. After defeating Shiratorizawa Academy, their well-deserved ticket to the nationals is finally in their hands.
In season 4, we saw how the players of Karasuno prepared themselves for the challenges ahead as well as saw them face off with a completely new opponent: Inarizaki High. The bar reaches a new high when Miya Atsumu, Japan’s “best high school setter,” greets Karasuno with a new challenge.
1. Release Date
Season 5 of Haikyuu is yet to receive an official confirmation; however, the anime could return in the fall of 2021.
Season 4 was released in two cours, one from January to April and the second from October to December. We can expect the same to happen for Season 5 as well.
Though there is no information regarding another season, it is safe to assume that Haikyuu will return with season 5. The manga is still ongoing, and the anime is loved by viewers worldwide!
2. What To Expect From Season 5
Season 4 of Haikyuu ends at vol 33, chapter 291 of the original manga. Season 5 will continue adapting the manga from chapter 292 onwards.
If season 5 would be divided into 2 cours, we can expect part 1 to cover the Nekoma vs. Karasuno match in 13 episodes. As it is a common plot element, we might get more backstories of the new cast through various flashbacks.
The animation quality in season 4, cour 2, made many fans disappointed in a few episodes because the production house was outsourced due to COVID-19. Season 5 will also be a change to bring back the amazing animation that the anime previously had.
