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...

It’s understated and low on fanservice so it may not make a big splash on the general audience but it’s gone back to basics by gently layering very incisive character studies together to create...

Haikyuu!!: To the Top ep4 – The Coach

Of course! Of course, the week after I praise Haikyuu for the surprising (to me) and slightly unusual decision to focus the start of the season so tightly on Hinata and how that has shaped and curved the narrative of season for (for the better in my opinion) rendering it more personal and relatable, the...
