Haikyuu!!: To the Top ep.16 – Simplicity is Best

My last post of the first half of Haikyuu!! To The Top was called The Ballad of Tanaka The Stupid. I really liked that episode as well. It made me happy. But I do regret the title now. Kinda. Simple isn’t stupid and it isn’t easy. In fact, simple is often the mark of something...

Haikyuu!!: To the Top ep.11 – Fine Tuned

I’m not sure who reads my Haikyuu reviews. Those of you who do will find them pretty repetitive I bet. I just go OMG great episode I loved it every single week. I don’t want a bad episode, and considering there’s only one left…who stops a season after the first match of a tournament when...

Haikyuu!!: To the Top ep9 – The Manager

Man Haikyuu To The Top is good. I’ve been flirting with the idea for a while now but I’m just going to take a stand and announce it, this is my favourite season of Haikyuu!!. Or to put it into a bit more perspective, this is my favourite season of one of my favourite animes...
