tfw I woke up last sunday after asking for a new thread but there was none ;_;
Yes, I need it so badly.
General chapter thoughts:
Shiratorizawa ended up being my fourth favourite team so it'll be kinda sad to see them go. Highlights included seeing Tendou talk to Ushijima as they were stretching cause after all that hype about him being an unstoppable super ace it's nice to see him open up to someone. Also, of course, the karasuno third years being overjoyed and a victory dinner instead of a defeat one. Can't wait to see the cats and owls again next time.
I hope it won't quite yet.
I've seen people say that Tokyo can have two representatives, so I'd prefer it if they'd duke it out at nationals and then Nekoma would win and face Karasuno. Heck, IIRC there was gonna be one more tokyo training camp too, right?
This is my favorite. Idk if it's smug, though.
I can't decide whether Kuroo is the king of smug or whether Tsukki is.
Tsukki to his own team, but Kuroo to others, IMO.
Suga is a blessing.
I love the catman and he'd basically be my husbando if it weren't for the fact that
I want him to be lovey dovey with his childhood friend.
I've got nothing against kuroken but I can't stand kurotsuki. They barely talk to each other yet the pairing is overly popular, the same goes with a lot of others one. I fucking hate pairings that are based on only one or two interactions at all, worst case is when they are paired up together just because "they're hot".
No problem anon!
That scene was so cute.
>you will never ruffle Smiley-kun's hair
I don't remember them ever mentioning it in the Manga but it'd make sense that the bigger prefectures with more competition have more slots. I think that's how it is with a lot of tournaments in all sorts of sports.
Is there a transparent of this?
Tsukishima a best.
I agree with you. The popularity of Kurotsuki is bewildering when it's clearly Bokuto that has the bigger influence on Tsukishima.
I've come to dislike most Kuroo pairings because more often than not he's turned into an almost completely different character.
>paired up because "they're hot"
W-welcome to the internet
If anything, kurotsuki *still* have interactions, you know.
anyway, use the time you waste on browsing fanworks for more, well, useful matters
Oh, you're right, I'm an idiot.
Here you go, anon. In case no one has made a transparency yet.
You're welcome. I'm not THAT transparency anon, though. But if anyone wants another transparency, feel free to ask.
I don't have anything else to do other than being here with you.
It is, but yeah it's full of lag as usual.
That was fast! Thank you anon, he's indeed super cute.
You're welcome, it was a crappy job but I couldn't resist. When HS releases this episode I will take high quality screenshots and do more transparencies. I want this one >>136210400
Free! is overdramatic shit, whereas Haikyuu is actually a good sports anime
They're two different things. They're both well directed, so everything else is just up for preferences.
This is a Haikyuu thread, so you're automatically going to find more people preferering that series anyway.
Do you think Furudate's art improved?
I felt nothing when the 3rd years cried on a panel at the latest chapter
I really want to curse at the shitposters
in my own languagein this thread right now
Anyway, if Furudate plans to continue after nationals, I'd like Hinata to become really different from the Small Giant
T-they are children
Yeah, I don't think it looks bad outside of the rushed action sequences.
I think he has improved a lot but I don't like it wen he simplifies his style as muchas he has done at times during the last 60 chapters or so. From time to time, when the situation or mood requires it, he can draw the characters quite nicely and with a lot of detail.
Well, I can't really blame him. Let's see how
the next training arc chapters look (because we are getting one, right?).
I thought she'd be a generic shy girl when she was first introduced in the manga but she ended up being great.
It's the haikyuu magic. You think someone is cool and collected and get TURBOAUTIST3000, you think catman is up to something but he was always kind, you think main character is going to be a run of the mile keet but he is actually pic related
Misaki is the best girl and best manager. Can't believe how bland Kiyoko still is compared to her despite being around since the beginning.
>[HorribleSubs] Haikyuu!! S2 - 15 [720p]
The other day I was watching a national volley league match here and I saw this flag, I couldn't fucking believe it
Kiyoko's a sweet girl who cares about her team a lot and she's pretty fun when she's around Yachi, but Misaki is just better.
People have gotten their Oikawa nendos by now, right? At least I've seen what looks like people playing with them. I still haven't received mine but I'd like to know what other anons think of it.
I've seen pictures of nips who have it on twitter. Haven't gotten mine yet but it'll be coming with the rest of my January order. Nendos are pretty consistent quality-wise so it should be fine.
I haven't read the Manga but I know that
Karasuno won the finals and moved on to Nationals, do you guys think the Anime will get to that point? We have like 10 episodes left, and there's what, 3-4 matches?
Nah, it will end
with a cliffhanger as they walk onto the court for the final match. Semi-finals and finals both took like 40 chapters each, they'd have to skip a ton of stuff and completely shit on these matches if they desperately wanted to catch up to the manga, which isn't happening.
About the Tokyo Finals. From what I see on the last panel (pic related), the Owls were done with their match, while the cats were about to go in.
So here is the thing. Perhaps Tokyo has two or three differente finals to get each rep team. A la Group A, Group B and Group C. The owls won the finals of Group A, and now the cats will have the finals of Group B.
I mean this would make much more sense. Right? Furudate would not make
Bokutocry, right? ;_;
>Inuoka is on the picture
W-What's happening? Where's Shibayama? I'm scared
Guys im afraid we wont get match vs Shiratorizawa this season. You can figure it out by matches pacing for 24 episodes and ending hyping up Seijou.
Please tell me that im wrong
I hope we get a break for slice of life now. Just one chapter is enough I need some air after all that.
I was seriously thinking about this. Chapter 25 mentions Nekoma in a flashback as the second of Tokyo's representatives. That means there's got to be at least two, right? R-right?
Must be two. With baseball I know they split it into East Tokyo and West Tokyo so maybe Nekoma and Fukurodani are in the same block? I'm not entirely sure if they're going against each other or not since like >>136217649 mentioned, Bokuto looks like he just won.
Aone a cute. Doesn't approve of his teammates badmouthing the "friend" he only shook hands with once.
I gather at least one or two slice of life chapters. One where the cats (and by proxy, the owls) get the news that the crows won rep and another of Owl antics if they indeed are not pitted against the cats for the finals.
Are they decided by competing in different blocks?
What strikes me as odd is the scans saying "Tokyo Representative Finals" and not "1st representative", "group A representative" or whatever...
I want to cum on her eyebrows.
And leave her disappointed.
If they just send the finalists automatically, you wouldn't need to specify.
I'm less clean on whether this is actually the finals or the beginning of their tournament. Didn't they say it started later than Miyagi's?
But she was made for sex.
The translations say it is in January.
thank anon but it's worse. I meant, the season they are in now. Is it fall or summer or winter? I couldn't remember. BUT I went back a couple of volumes and found out. It's October 27. We have reasons to see christmas shenanigans!
Christmas Shenanigasn. The posibility to have Asahi as Jesus tied to the net animated. What a greatness
I know Aone is best. But can we talk about the best shot in this episode?
Just look at him.
I was fucking crying because of the whole chapter and it didn't help
I was so damned happy to see the owls again. Tthen the cold posibility sat in.
But I still believe that Owls vs. Cats will only happen at nationals, not on qualifiers.
The whole Haikyuu OST is great. Simple stuff but it fits the show well. Hayashi Yuuki is pretty talented.
When is S2 OST out?
Eh, there are a couple of decent artists who don't have that super-tumblr artstyle but all of them repost their shit on pixiv anyway.
Yeah, that's pretty dumb. Bokuaka is one of the most popular pairing (along with Iwaoi) so when Semi showed up it was only natural. But still, it makes me somewhat mad because well, Semi's a character of its own, not some lovechild.
Remember to get both albums, one has Hinata cover art, the other Kageyama
It's odd, the soundtrack isn't in your face in the show (like say a Sawano soundtrack always is) but when you think about it the show has great music direction and the OST fits really well.
Didn't know that! I usually don't really have time to lurk for fanworks anyway
I know that already, but Jesus, they don't ever stop impressing me with their dumbness
Some decent people are there with good metas, but they are usually really hard to find.
I understand Iwaoi, but what is there for Bokuaka? I mean, they are funny together, but that's about it.
>what is there for Bokuaka?
> I mean, they are funny together, but that's about it.
Fujos have made doujins over less before now
I've read AkaBoku djs before. There is chemistry, of course, (more with KurooBoku) but I can honestly confess that I only do it because I want to see Bokuto being lovedand fucked.
>but what is there for Bokuaka?
They are the most memorable characters of Fukurodani and they appear together a lot. That is all the reason shippers need.
I'm surprised Bokuto and Akaashi got as characters got as popular as they did despite only being relevant for one arc.
I know. A character should never be minimized to a single trope, it's an awful treatment. They did it with "Dadchi" too, and Yaku, Akaashi and Iwaizumi are refered as Team Mom along with Suga now.
>I understand Iwaoi, but what is there for Bokuaka? I mean, they are funny together, but that's about it.
It all started when someone decided that Akaashi was SO HOT and, well, he has to be paired with someone since he's so hot. That's about it.
As for myself I like him and all but shit he's ugly. But I don't like bored faces or characters in general, so there's that.
Nah, I mean its popularity. Since when did Fukurodani get so much attention? Where is the age when I only saw kagehina?
It's okay anon, I don't judge that, though I don't really understand that reasoning
Actually I want to know why do they think that Akaashi is the fairest of them all. I mean, I am not going to say it is
Tanaka, but there are some Haikyuus more lovely than him.
I second this motion.
I watched both seasons of Free and am up to date with the HQ manga, and gotta say I definitely prefer the former, mostly becaUuse HQ doesn't linger and doesn't depend on the drama to keep itself interesting. Plus, shipping aside, you get a lot of characters interacting between themselves, while Free kept putting the same two characters in the same space and barely interacted with the others. Personally I felt Free would have benefited itself from the SoL that we got in the drama CDs. Also the HQ teams do feel like real teams where everyone is good at something, while in Free it felt like Haru was carrying the whole team.
Plus I think the shipping pandering did drag down the quality.
I've seen characters being minimized way too often to be mad. That's typical fandom stupidity
I don't think Akaashi is ugly, but his character design isn't really that outstanding. There has to be some fanartists buffing his popularity
That's a. pretty typical tumblr reply
refrain that, pal
That, and Akaashi's backstory or whatever hasn't been told yet, how does he get that popular?
>how does he get that popular?
It's just because people think he's attractive. That is all there is to it.
I can understand why people like Bokuto since his friendship with Kuroo is hilarious and because he helped Tsukki and Hinata. But Akaashi has done nothing except complain and be exasperated with everyone.
Everybody has different tastes. For me,
Lev's the cutest.
>That's a. pretty typical tumblr reply
No kidding, you were the one asking since when did Akaashi and Bokuto get so much popularity on tumblr, so yeah, obviously.
>Akaashi's backstory or whatever hasn't been told yet, how does he get that popular?
See the second part of >>136223118 and >>136223076
Haven't seen this one before, thanks.
I have a folder just for autism images
I need the dancing Kagyama from the BBQ scene
My Kageyama folder always provides a good laugh.
Oikawa just shipped, but I ordered all of them!
So many months away still.
>Bokuto having any kid but Hinata
I went all in for the gs preorder bones too.
because he's best boy
He's like 30 dollars and doesn't ship till spring. You can do it, anon!
Yen is easy to pay, the shipping is not anon. and Yes I will continue with my smiley. That's how salty I am about not being able to buy the stuff I want anymore thanks to the shitty economic handlings of my country.
Wow you have to pay 45-50 dollars instead of 30! Big difference!
Where do you live? You have like 4 months to save.
I posted from two different IP's, so make that 48.
>afraid to be insulted
How does a fragile soul like you end up here?
yeah I can't stop myself from asking and wondering please forgive me
I really like 1 Ten. Gets me hyped
It's because only people with good taste come here.
It is the power of the Haikyuss anon.
You are welcome, anon! This is so embarrassing I'm blushing
I know, some of them draw so well it looks like official art.
You will never convince Kiyoko to give you a spanking.
Her reservedness is what makes Kiyoko so great.
Even so, I rather like the wilds myself.
Just look at those thighs anon. He's rock solid.
To be honest anon.
I have a feeling they will not win the Spring Tournament. I would love if Haikyuu continues after the third years graduate, since Karasuno will have to change game tactics.
Yeah, they could barely win against Shiratorizawa. They have a couple months before the Spring Tournament begins, but will it be enough time for them to get strong enough to defeat bigger opponents? Will those other two top-players they mentioned (Ushiwaka was the 3rd) be there?
You bet they will be there. Especially when Akiteru mentioned to Tsukishima that he would be proud wether he block either Ushiwaka or the other one of the two left. If there is something you can bet on Furudate is coming through with the foreshadowings.
The last 4,000 chapters were about them.
Whatever happened to that lady who got fired for shit talking Kuroko and drawing lewd Haikyuus?
Here you have it anon. Look how perfect his sleep position is.
Noya spiking a toss. This is perfect. Thank you for making me aware of this chapter, anon.
I have them all too! Plus special edition Suga and Kageyama.
