Definitely one not to miss, especially in sports manga. The anime is more so my taste, but the manga is not one to forget. The art and the story is very will explained and presented in a a way that isn't confusing. A lot of action and one of those compelling emotional type manga to see through to the end.

A smashingly great start to a contemporary popular manga series! Excellent pacing explaining the sport while equally hooking readers in its underdog story.
I highly recommend watching the anime adaptation as well, available through our own library system and through legal online streaming sites like crunchyroll and vrv.

" So then, Hinata. . .you play volleyball because you want to beat Kageyama?"
"Hugh? Uhhh. . .
[Kageyama] Is he practicing even during lunch?
"What I want is to get good enough to beat Kageyama. If I'm that good, I'm sure I'll be able to hold my own against other really good players. . .and I won't lose games that easily. See, um. . .I don't want to lose anymore."
"Hunh. Okay. So in other words. . .in your mind, right now Kageyama is the best of anybody is THE BEST of anybody your age. Right?"
"Geh! Um! y-y-y. . .yeeh. . .Ugh. y-y. . .sss. . ."
[Suga] He really doesn't want to say YES, does he.
"If Kageyama used to be your greatest enemy. . .
"Doesn't that mean he's your GREATEST TEAMMATE now?"

A wall looms in front of me. A tall, tall wall. . .What's the view like over that wall? What will I see beyond it?
The view from the top. It's something I could never, ever see on my own. But maybe. . .if I WASN'T alone. . .I might be able to see it. . .
