>It's also made by the same studio.

What does this have to do with anything? They're both adaptations and anon didn't even mention anything about Kuroko's animation quality or OST.

>Ashita no Joe

>Giant Killing
>One Outs

are all series I'd consider better than Haikyuu, though for most of them I'm judging based on the manga rather than the adaption. I like Haikyuu but it ends up as non stop dragged out high school level games like a lot of sports series, I prefer them shorter or with higher stakes.

>>138857270
Go away with your trash taste.

>>138857299
It's all exaggerated. That's just the style of the show. That doesn't mean they have superpowers, they do normal basketball stuff, the show just hypes them up tenfold. You're missing out.

Gee, I don't know, maybe Production I.G. makes the best sports anime out of any studio? And if they animated Haikyuu, there's a super high chance KnB would be good too?

That's what makes Kuroko fun. The last match was flat out retarded though

oh god the second vid about the zone. do people seriously pass this for a sports anime?
>>
>>138857637
Kuroko would have been good if there was a proper sense of scale for their world by showing off what kind of crazy shit NBA players could do if a japanese kid could make 99% of his shots from anywhere on the court.
>>
>>138857062
Who?
>>
>>138857637
Honestly, the problem with KnB isn't that they have pseudo magical powers, it's that powers in a long running series inevitably means escalating powerlevels. The zone is hype, but then they have to force more hype with that second door bullshit, and it just gets dumber and dumber over time. Funnily enough one of the most hype games I've seen in anime is the HxH dodgeball game and that's quite literally done with magic powers.
>>
>>138857733
>>138857734
I liked it when I watched it, but when I watched the second season it just got really silly. I had to turn off the episode when they started explaining "the zone" because it was just really stupid. The actual games are pretty hype it's just that I couldn't take it seriously after that. I haven't watched the third season, but I can only guess that it gets even more absurd.

>>138857746
They need some way to raise the stakes when everyone is a superhuman.

>>138857783
I couldn't stop thinking of this either. I get that they are supposed to be prodigies but there has to be some scale.

>>138857916
For me it's just that they have to use some excuse for how it's possible in the real world. I can understand the zone, but treating it like it escalates you to some super power is just hard to take
>>
Sooo just watched Ping Pong. Got over the art and this shit is hype. Thanks anons.

Thank you based IG.

Not surprising, though, considering they even managed to make Kuroko's last match, which was fucking terrible in the manga, actually cool in the anime.

I expect the same or even better for Shiratorizawa's match since I simply couldn't enjoy it in the manga due to how fucking long it was and how uninteresting the characters were.

At best that would mean good directing and animation, it has nothing to do with the quality of the story because they're adaptions. KnB and Haikyuu have different mangaka, there's literally no logical reason to assume they'd be equally well written.

KnB peaked in season 1 during the Kise/Aomine match and was in more or less steady decline from there on out, though that has a lot to do with the devastating loss of S1's OST. Haikyuu, on the other hand, just keeps getting better.

I think the problem with the Shiratorizawa match wasn't so much that it was actually bad, but that it came right after such an emotional match with some of the most sympathetic characters in the manga. There's nothing wrong with Shiratorizawa as a team except fucking Satori, it's just that your heart doesn't really go out to them the way it does with Oikawa and Iwaizumi because their circumstances are so different.

I think it's also one of those matches you have to read in one fell swoop, not over the course of weeks. The people who were keeping up with it weekly seemed really frustrated with it and I don't blame them. Something about the way the match is crafted just calls for reading the chapters all in one go.

Ushiwaka match is better as a whole because Glasses-kun gets a ton of development and he's pretty much the reason as to why they end up winning the match, not to mention the amazing build up with the previous Captain flashback during the bus ride, the TV crews being there just because of Ushiwaka, the entire gym filled up with people supporting Shiratorizawa, all the previous secondary characters being the only ones supporting Karasuno, etc...

Baby Steps when it comes to the sport part was extremely good, the animation failed pretty often tho, i also enjoyed the characters. It has a lot of realism and just the tiny bit of unrealistic part that was needed for it to be fun. I remember getting scared of it being another KnB when that guy who drew replicas on the pitch appeared, but thankfully it didn't go that way and they guy even retired to do what he actually liked, be an artist.

It's literally not. It has no magic or shit or anything of that sort. They just add visual effects to exaggerate and hype up normal basketball abilities.
>>
>>138860291
Is the match against shiratorizawa actually over? I'm looking at the wiki and it says 21:19
>>
>>138860797
Pretty much. Shouting out special moves like a chunni and all that jazz. People that tell you otherwise is lying and pretending. I mean, just look at the examples here >>138857637
>>
>>138860881
Fifth and last set goes up to only 15 points, not 25 like normal sets.
>>
>>138860797

You should watch it. Just be prepared for it being DBZ basketball.
>>
>>138860881
After 10 months it finally ended just weeks ago.
>>
>>138860881
Yes, it's over.
>>
Hopefullt they fix the pacing of the Shiratorizawa match when they animate it.
>>
>>138860971
It's going to be the entire season when it airs, so you be the judge of it, I haven't read it.
>>
>>138860971
12-13 episodes for one match will still drag, at least animated it will be neater.
>>
>>138861088

>12 - 13 episodes

That would be absolutely crazy. Way, way too long.
>>
>>138861131
Going by the pace they've used in s1 and s2, it should be 10 episodes at the very least.

I'm thinking it will just be one cour consisting entirely of that match.
>>
I remember being absolutely floored at how good the first episode of the season was. Top tier opening and ending, stellar animation and ost and the hype encounter with Ushiwaka. It started to drag a bit in the middle of the season I thought, but this episode today was just amazing.
>>
>>138861166
Please no
Just six or seven will do
>>
>>138861166

We're gonna be reaching Dragonball levels if this turns out to be the case.
>>
>>138860797
It's set in reality, but just really dramatize it. Like the zone is literally when someone in real life says they're in the zone and working efficiently or playing really well, except they take that idea and make it into becoming a super saiyan
>>
>>138861198
But s1 op is way better.
>>
>>138861210
Well the tagline on the announcement said Shiratorizasa vs Karasuno, so I'm thinking it has to be just that.
>>
>>138861210
The match is way to long for just 6-7 episodes and thank god most of the third set is skipped.
>>
>>138861220
Such is the fate of every popular shonen jump series.
>>
>>138861221

We've all experienced "being in the zone", whether it was at work, playing sports ourselves or some video game where you just stomp the opposition. KnB is fine if you just accept that it is just as much a shounen battle manga as a sports show.
>>
You guys know how Tsukkishita and Tamagotchi got special attention and development? Will Tanaka ever get some? He's clearly the coolest.
>>
>>138861300

He might, but he already got his place as a competent player and spiker. Yamaguchi and Tsukishima got development because they were sub-par players or just didn't have their hearts in the game.
>>
>>138861300
Tanaka is way too 'simple' for development, which is why he's enjoyable.
>>
>>138861300
What kind of development would he get? He's already passionate about vollyball and he doesn't seem to have doubts in his abilities like Tsukki and Yamaguchi had.
>>
>>138861325
But Asahi and Hinata, and every other spiker really are written as better than him.

>>138861341
They can easily give him more attention by making him pick fights with people, in game and in real life.
>>
>>138861369
Every other spiker clearly underestimates him, can't imagine what the Shiratorizawa dude would be like. He won't even acknowledge his existence.
>>
>>138850452
are you a fujoshit
>>
>>138861392
He does pick fights with other teams, maybe he should actually get into one for real.
>>
>>138861277
That's pretty much how you got to take it. Haikyuu is more of being grounded in reality, and Kuroko stretches reality for hype. They are both sports shows, but different takes on how to present the sports
>>
>>138861392

Asahi had his development in season one. He was heavily discouraged from the game after being completely shut down by Dateko in a game. He is the ace and is absolutely expected to score a lot of points. Since then there hasn't really been any development for him, since he is back in a good place.
>>
>>138861392
Hinata is not written as better than Tanaka, he just has a little more focus since he's the MC.

It's obvious that Asahi is the ace, but he's graduating next year leaving the ace spot for Tanaka to take over.

>that last change

Threw my arms up like 2-3 times
>>
>>138861531
Furudate can only give one character focus at a time and before shelving them to handle another. It would be nice if he knew how to balance a large cast better.
>>
>>138861531
Ok, and I'm clearly not talking about Asahi, but Tanaka.

>>138861540
Yeah right, he's clearly 10 times better and scores more points. Tanaka doesn't have anything special, like Hinata's super speed, super jumps, and super accuracy, or Asahi's immence power.
>>
>>138861622

Right, and what I mean to say is that Asahi had a problem, got development which solved this problem and got him back in the game. Tanaka doesn't seem to have any issues. He is good at the game and has the right mindset going into matches. I don't think he needs to acquire some additional quality for him to be a worthwhile character. Rather, it is better that he remains what he is; a good, competent player who is enthusiastic about the game, but who does not have the unusal power or speed of Hinata. Tanaka has all he needs to do his job in the matches. He makes receives and scores on his spikes.
>>
>>138861622
It's just a case of the author telling and not showing. Everybody still looks down on Hinata as unskilled and not ace material, whereas Tanaka is consistently noted to be a strong player.
>>
>>138861683
But he does have issues, everyone else is better than him, and he impresses nobody at all. I just want more Tanaka.
>>
>>138861710
And he doesn't care.
>>
>>138861710

I also think that him being what he is works to prevent that power creep you often see in sports shows.
>>
>>138861720
>>138861730
Stop hating on Tanaka, they could give him like two eps or something.
>>
>>138861710
Asahi is the ace but he also gets ignored a lot as the manga goes on. At least Tanaka is a second year so he has one more year to be the ace and get noticed.
>>
>>138861764

No one is hating on him. We're arguing that he is a worthwhile character as he is.
>>
>>138861764
It's not just Tanaka, the entire team was ignored in favor of Tsukki in the recent arc. Maybe the next match will give some well deserved focus to the neglected characters.
>>
>>138861771
Well yeah, but Asahi wins Shimizu so he's got it good. Tanaka has nothing.

>>138861807
Yes you are, he deserves more screen time and you don't want it.
>>
>>138861839

I am not opposed to giving him more screentime. You started this discussion by comparing him to Yamaguchi and Tsukishima and said that he needed special attention and development like them.
>>
>>138861900
Yes exactly, he does need more attention and development, and you're gainst it.
>>
>>138861920
What do you think should happen for him?
>>
>>138861935
He should carry a game, get girls to cheer for him, fight someone, and prove that he's the best.
>>
>>138861935

I'm interested in what you would want to see for Tanaka as well. The comparision you made to Yamaguchi and Tsukki wasn't apt, because they had distinct problems which could help propel their development.
>>
>>138861961
Tanaka has distinct problems too, everyone is better than him, and he gets no attention at all.
>>
>all this discussion about how the Shiratorizawa match is shit and it'll take up the entire next season
This is disheartening, Haikyuu is one of my favorite recent shows and I don't want to see it drop in quality.
>>
>>138861995

You keep saying that everyone is better than him, but I don't think that's right at all. I've said numerous times that he is a strong and competent player who makes saves and scores points. Is he better than Asahi? Maybe not, but then again, Asahi is the ace for a reason. Is he better than Hinata? In some respects, yes he absolutely is. Does all this mean he needs a power up? I don't think so.
>>
>>138862068

I have to think that they are aware of the problems of adapting this part of the manga and will try something.
>>
>>138862068
I like the match, but it's so, so long.
Won't be nearly as awful as kuroko's last season, the match was unbearably terrible and just kept going.
>>
>>138862085
He's not better than anyone at all, are you even watching the anime? He doesn't do anything, he just scores a point here and there. None of the opponents are afraid of him, like they are of Hinata.
>>
>>138861995
Everyone is not better than him. He's the 2nd with most attention next to Noya and he's just close to Asahi in terms of being a strong player.

He will never get the attention you want for him because the author is too busy sucking Tsukki's flaccid dick.
>>
What chapter does Season 3 start with?
>>
>>138862134
>is too busy sucking Tsukki's flaccid dick.
I hope it has died after Shiratorizawa's match and they can focus on different characters in the nationals.
>>
I think the show is in danger of falling into the same trap of Daiya no Ace, where it's just one game after another with very little time to build up hype or flesh out characters in another setting. You just end up not caring because you proceed from game to game so fast.
>>
>>138857074
Daia no ace.
Yowamushi pedal, but like>>138860599 said.
>>
>>138850452
>AOTS right here

Well I agree only when this match began.

The first half of the season was pretty meh even though training arc was necessary.
>>
>>138862068
To me it's the lowest point of the manga. It's getting a little better in recent chapters, but the match was just exhausting.

s3 will definitely feel a lot different than the previous seasons.
>>
>>138862134
But you're just wrong.

Probably not. He had all that focus in the training camp arc, the stuff with his older brother, and then the entire shiratorizawa match.

I was actually tired when it ended and I felt like I was watching it for an hour. Fucking amazing.

>>138862265
That was all part of his development arc, which is hopefully done by now.
>>
It's rare to see this level of discussion of a show on /a/. Minmal shitposting and people actually trying to have an argument.
>>
>>138862125

>he just scores a point here and there

Well, what else would he do? It's not Hinata and Asahi scoring all 25 points in a set.
>>
>>138862311
Sports anime that aren't obvious fujoshi-bait (Free) and bullshit powerups (KnB) usually have decent threads.
>>
>>138862311
You mean minimal faggots talking about gay shit throughout the thread.
>>
>>138862344
They're scoring the majority and getting all the attention. Stop lying.
>>
>>138862358
Why are you pretending this doesn't atttact a huge fujo following? This series is good but don't delude yourself over one decent thread.
>>
>>138862388
Having a fujo following doesn't mean it was made for fujos. Lets be real here.
>>
>>138862301
Hopefully, but he seemed to bump himself up to deuteragonist and received the most development in karasuno seeing how long his overall arc was.

His brother knowing the Small Giant will probably be relevant again.
>>
>>138862373
Tanaka is a side character, what did you expect?
>>
>>138862363

This thread is a one-off, in my experience. Most Haikyuu threads are what I have to imagine is the same few guys posting homoerotic stuff.
>>
>>138862363
That is only when the mood is good. Shiratorizawa makes me depressed.
>>
>>138862373

What you're trying to argue, I think, is that the show/manga has an issue of telling instead of showing, or just not showing enough. We all know Tanaka is a good player who is a credit to the team. The issue is one of pacing, I guess. Scenes like Tanaka doing another solid play and getting another point is dropped in favour of more interesting stuff.
>>
>>138862455
You're a side character.
>>
>>138862388
It's people like you who derail threads attacking immaginary fujoshis who don't even answer you . And then later you say it's their fault.
>>
>>138862464
No, you're the only one who speaks about homoerotic stuff.
>>
>>138862421
True but still attracts a lot of them regardless.

>>138862525
Oh please just can't let an anon go an pretend the threads aren't usually full off fags here thinking they're always decent.
>>
Remember that player Tanaka knows from the girls team that always makes it to Nationals and who is hyped as their next ace? I think he's going to get some development in the next training arc on that respect, being the next ace and all that.
>>
>>138862608

Sadly, it seems they've dropped that scene from the anime. If the author was gonna do something with that plot point, then wouldn't he have told the studio to include that scene?
>>
>>138862663
I noticed that too. Maybe they are saving it for the next season. It's been a while since that scene and I hope Furudate hasn't dropped that plot point.
>>
>>138862236
>I bet the Protagonist team will beat the enemy team

Are you literally retard?

Posting best scene

http://i.4cdn.org/wsg/1458431770718.webm
>>
>>138862690
There are sports anime that are more daring and have the main team lose lots of important matches. Haikyuu plays it safe and always allows the protagonist team to move forward.

Can't blame people for getting attached to rival teams since most of them are portrayed pretty damn sympathetic.
>>
>>138862736

Are you forgetting the first season where they got beaten by Aoba Jousai? If AJ had won again, the plot wouldn't really have gone anywhere.
>>
>>138862736
Have you saw Season 1?

>inb4 that was predictable as well
>>
>>138862736
They already lost against Aoba and they kind of need to get to the nationals for important plot reasons.
They can perfectly lose against Nekoma though, I wouldn't even be surprised.
>>

>>138862762
They lost and then had a rematch with the exact same team and won. In the end they are still moving forward to the important matches with their 3rd years intact.
>>
>>138862690
>Enemy team beat protags team
>Improved since then
>Added a beast in the squad also

Makes sense for them to win again.
>>
>>138862829

And you dont feel that way after the numerous episodes showing how Karasuno is improving and becoming a better team?
>>
>>138862798
>In the End they still moving forward
>In a Different Championship
>B-b-but they still have their 3rd years intact.

You went full retard. What you want? Them loosing all the time. I need to remind you they only win 4 times in the summer camp (out of... I dont know 30?)
>>
>>138862762
I'm talking about losing big. 3rd years have to graduate without ever being able to move on to nationals. This manga is still playing it safe and following a pretty idealistic path. I mean, Karasuno, Fukurodani, and likely Nekoma will all make it to nationals.
>>
>>138862854
Shhhhh, that doesn't matter.
>>
>>138862854
Everybody was improving. It just comes down to protagonist power.
>>
>>138862895
>3rd years have to graduate without ever being able to move on to nationals
Then everything up till now with them would have been a huge waste of manga.
>>
>>138862854
Nah, thought they'd put up a more fierce match this time but not actually beat them.
>>
>>138862926
Actually it isn't. True he got the final score, but every save, every other score mather as much. In the last match Hinata only score like a couple out of 60
>>
>>138862862
I'm saying that Karasuno has been playing and winning against elite teams whose 3rd years have been playing together for awhile while Karasuno is still a fledgeling. Most of their relevant characters are 1st years so they don't have to get to the big stage immediately.
>>
>>138862926

That is not a fair complaint. The match was incredibly close. On another day Seijou might have won.

Hey Primary, Is my favorite manager will appear again in S3?
Pic related.
>>
>>138862932
But it's more realistic that a team playing together for only months doesn't have to win.

I'm was just commenting that there sports anime don't let the protagonist move forward every time, especially if they are 1st years. Though I do think it makes sense for Karasuno to not lose to Seijou twice in the same way.
>>
>>138862992

I would argue that Daiya no Ace went the route you described and suffered for it. After something like 125 episodes, they are still not at nationals.
>>
Girls team in s3?
>>
>>138862956
I'm not talking about Hinata. Karasuno is the protagonist team. The main team. The one that gets the most focus.
>>
>>138863033
No. s3 is all shiratorizawa and tsukishima. No other teams except short Oikawa and Iwa cameo.
>>
>>138863099
Why tsukishita? Makes no sense.
>>
>>138863115
Because he's the MVP.

It makes a world of sense. What are you on about?

Thanks ;_;
>>
>>138863044
It's not more realistic. It happens in college sports all the time. It's especially common in college volleyball.

It doesn't really matter. Production I.G. added content that didn't exist in the manga, cut things, and rearranged shit just to stoke their boner for Seijou.

It's a great show in general and absolutely one of the best sports shows around. It has top tier visuals and soundtrack.
>>
>>138858310
>Tsukishima
This. He's one of my fav. boys now. His action in Shiratorizawa Arc was outstanding.
Literally the brain of the team.
>>
>>138863099
> all tsukishima

Not really. It's pretty evenly spread between him, Kageyama, Hinata, and Nishinoya. Tsukishima is just the piece that falls into place that allows Karasuno to adapt and finally steps it up.
>>
>>138863283

>Tsukishima is just the piece that falls into place

Exactly. What the team needed was a great middle blocker and someone who was skilled at reading the enemy team. And they got that when Tsukki finally gets his heart in the game.
>>
Where did the Seijou name come from? Isn't the school called Aoba Jousai?
>>
>>138863279
He's a blocking play maker, not the brain. Sugiwara and Kageyama are still the offensive coordinators.
>>
>>138863346
青 can be read as "ao" and "sei", so the school's name is abbreviated as "Seijou".
>>
Karasuno before Tsukki steps up is kinda the reverse of Nekoma. Nekoma has troubles closing out games because they have a really solid defence, but their own scoring power is lacking.
>>
>>138863283
It's not evenly balanced at all. It's heavily Tsukki centric. He's even named the MVP. This match is exclusively geared towards his character development.
>>
>>138863437

The setup for his development has been going on for a long time and the payoff is worth it, so I don't mind myself.
>>
>>138863179
It's really good.
But, just don't enter the general Haikyuu thread when the show is airing if you're straight male. That thread is full of Yaoi fanart.
Well, looks like this thread is exception. An anomaly for Haikyuu thread.
>>
>>138863437
You really need to re-read the entire game. Or did you only pay attention to a quarter of the chapters?
>>
>>138863374
I agree on Suga. But Kageyama is not that smart in my opinoin. Even I think the captain is more smarter than Kageyama.
>>
>>138851828
Animefag here, I was on the edge of my seat literally in the last point.
>>
>>138863567

Oikawa just said it himself in the eisode: the reason to be wary of Kagayama is that when he does think of something, he will go for it with no hesitation. He doesn't stop to doubt whether it will work or not.

I don't hate the match as much as some people do, but I have no interest in re-reading those chapters. I'm pretty sure most of them were redundant. But you can't really say any other Karasuno character got that level of character development. He truly felt like the MC. His arc was being built up since training camp.
>>
>>138857074
I'll throw in another vote for Yowamushi pedal.
>>138863503
The threads aren't always like that. I thought yesterday's thread was pretty tame.
>>
>>138863678
Sure I can.

All of Ushijima's attention was focused on Hinata. Even the coach was focused on Hinata.
>>
SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

NICE REESHIEVE

SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>
>>138863567
He's not smart at all, just a prodigy. He will never be as motivational or as trusted as Sugawara though.
>>
>>138863615
Well, I just literally checking the player runtime every minutes when I watched this. Because holy shit i don't want another cliffhanger match in this episode.
>>
>>138863678

It was because what was needed to win was someone who could stop Ushiwaka. I woulf rather it was Tsukishima who has been training blocking with Fukuroudani and Nekoma than giving it to Hinata.
>>
>>138863769
Tsukishima only stops Ushijima once. Literally. Only once. There is only one kill block in the entire game.

His value comes in that he becomes a block play maker. He starts blocking a lot of players, but Ushijima's intensity is fueled by Hinata and Kageyama throughout the game.

Did you people even read the game?
>>
>>138863718
Both of them were just disgusted that someone with Hinata's height and skill had the audacity to play volleyball. Tsukki getting hyped up to block for the first time ever was a significantly more important take away from that match.
>>
>>138863838

Right, and how close was the game again? I don't get what you're trying to argue.
>>
>>138863685
Yowamushi Pedal is nice at first, but it quickly becomes tedious. The pace is aweful, After a while, it just takes 1 episode per kilometer, 50% being useless redondant flashbacks and 50% useless talk.

Well, I guess you can consider they made it so realistic that it's as long an actual race...
>>
>>138863886

The reality of the cycling sport is that you often have really long stretches of time where nothing happens. The riders just maintain position and wait for that particular point on the route where they're planning to do something.
>>
>>138863875
Because somehow in a 5 set, 40+ chapter game you managed to ignore 90% of the game.
>>
>>138863932

Can you repeat what you're trying to argue, because I am not getting it.
>>
>>138863129
How does it make any sense?

>>138856442
I can't stop rewatching this scene, it's so, so fucking good. I haven't been so hyped while watching a chinese cartoon in ages.
>>
>>138863963

Tsukishima getting development? Because there has been clear and solid build up for it. His character still has unresolved issues.
>>
>>138863992
>muh issues

You're retarded.
>>
>>138863838
I read it week by week but all I remember is just a blur. All I remember is Tendou doing creepy faces, Ushijima wanting to actually murder Hinata, and Tsukki did a lot of important stuff.
>>
>>138856442
The long set up was amazing.
>>
>>138863992
Why did he even join the volleyball team in the first place if he thought it was pointless and hates his teammates anyways?
>>
>>138864018

Right, if you don't have an actual argument, then it's a pointless debate.
>>
>>138864092
he likes the game but didn't want to become overly attatched/invested in it

In my 6 years of watching anime this has go to be one of the best episodes ever done.

They got everything perfect and didn't over do it all, The angles for some of the scenes were fucking amazing and the music just gave certain moments that extra intensity.

I'm honestly speechless because I thought Date and Aoba couldn't be topped but this was amazing.

Also I love shit like this I hope we get more, Look how beautiful this shit looks.

The scene with Kageyama looking down on Oikawa was so fucking perfect.
>>
>>138864092

It's probably a mix of reasons. He is expected to be in a club and his family obviously has some tradition for playing volleyball. He most likely also really enjoy the game to a certain extent, but he got disllusioned with the sport after what happened with his brother.
>>
>>138864264

Good taste, Lelouch.
>>
>>138864264
Nice taste, Lelouch.
>>
>>138864264
This has to be the first time I actually agree with you.
>>
>>138864264
It's the small details too, I really like the scene where Ryu ends up tossing the ball back up and the person from the other team that get riled by it when it happened was Kyotani.

This ep was wonderful, but at the same time, it's kinda sad. As much as I wanted Aoba Johsai and Oikawa to lose at the end of Season 1, I felt like shit when they finally got beaten last ep, even moreso when Oikawa is a genuine character.
>>
>>138864489

That you feel that way just speaks to the quality of the show.
>>
>>138864550
So it was Furudate's intention to make the rival team more sympathetic than the main team?

It's pretty cruel how in s1 Karasunos loss to them was so heartbreaking that I just wanted them to get their revenge, but when it actually happened I felt nothing but sorry for Seijou.
>>
>>138864627

It was Furudate's intention to make compelling characters, and it would seem he has succeeded.

You don't have one. You just repeat muh issues.
>>
>>138864666
It's actually pretty annoying that he does that. It just means fans whining when their favorite team loses and resenting the winning team.

It would be nice if, just for once, everyone could be happy about the result of an important match.
>>
>>138864666
And he does a good job with that.
I remember the episode of S1 when they showed the girl's team and other teams losing and leaving the tournament and it was heartbreaking and I didn't even know them.
>>
>>138864751
>It's actually pretty annoying that he does that.
I disagree, I like that the author is able to make characters on both sides on the net equally appealing. Much better than only making the protagonists likable and turning the other teams into one-dimensional villains.

I feel like people exaggerate about the manga's art quality being bad. It has some bad moments, but when it's good it's really good and often more dynamic than in the anime, if you ask me.
>>
>>138864489
Yeah I couldn't help but feel sorry for Oikawa this episode too.

He puts on a cocky front but he can accept when he is out smarted and out played which is hard to find in people specially in the sports world.

I haven't read the manga but I'd be gobsmacked if they produced a better match than this in S3.
>>
>>138864836
When I say the art is bad I'm talking about the recent stuff. The art quality during the midpoint of the manga is pretty good.
>>
>>138864627
>So it was Furudate's intention to make the rival team more sympathetic than the main team?

I don't think so, since I don't think Shiratorizawa has this quality. The other schools like Nekoma work since we see them have fun with Karasuno, but definitely not Shiratorizawa.
>>
Why Hinata such a shitty character?Just lose already you cheap Naruto clone!
>>
>>138864826
The problem is I don't care about the protagonist team anymore. I am actually relieved the manga isn't focusing on them at this point. It's like Furudate went so out of his way to make rival teams sympathetic that they became more interesting and Karasuno is just there.
>>
>>138864668

Of course she goes for the one guy in the club who actually looks like a grown man.
>>
>>138864950
Haikyuu is the new Naruto. We are already getting a filler season later this year.
>>
>>138864836

There's a difference between a manga having an artstyle I don't like and it being bad. A lot of people do not make this distinction.
>>
>>138864989
I thought we're getting the Shiratorizawa match, how is that filler?
>>
>>138865002
Post some good panels from recent chapters.

>https://u.pomf.is/pofysk.webm

That is the genius of this show, they give each opposing team enough development and likability you feel bad for them when they lose.
>>
>>138865010
It's turning into one of those endless anime that get an episode every week like One Piece and Naruto. Plenty of time for filler.
>>
>>138864932
Shiratorizwa felt pretty soulless, but you could tell Furudate was attempting to give them something through certain flashbacks.
>>
>>138865018

I think the onus is on you to provide examples if you wanna claim something is bad.

Boring captain. The guy who stands out the most is a creep. Everyone else is forgettable. Also pretty sure one of them is legit 30 years old.
>>
>>138866147
I liked the creep, he was fun to read, true Satori.
>>
>>138866040
Because they're like the anti-Johzenji, a 'no fun allowed' clinical approach to volleyball that basically amounts to "hammer it until it stops moving because only scoring matters", and their "team" consists of an android autist southpaw and a whackjob who mixes Adderall into his water bottle to keep him grounded, plus their support staff that wear uniforms. You aren't supposed to like Shiratorizawa, you're supposed to resent them for the successes they've had that have made them so powerful because their being praised and worshipped is a literal travesty of karma. Shiratorizawa is the metaphor for exactly how not to approach playing a sport. The only punch Furodate pulled was making Ushiwaka a socially-stunted autist instead of being an outright fascist fuckhole so that he's not deliberately being an asshole out of overinflated ego.
>>
>>138866214

But why is the captain so extremely serious? Does he get development? Surely a person like that once used to have joy before tragedy struck him right?
>>
>>138866270
His family is so shit and uptight being lefty is something to be fixed and his father ran away to the states.
Destroying people with volleyball is the only thing fun for him.
>>
>>138866040
I like shiratorizawa. Tendou is amusing, especially the way he's trying so hard to hold a conversation with ushijima whom he admires, and underneath the whole "Super serious powerhouse" layer they're all still teenage boys who love volleyball. Especially Ushijima is just an autist who sucks at social situations and does apologize if he realised he hurt someone. Afterwards he was shown individually giving his non-3rd year team members tips to improve so he obviously does care and pay attention.
>>
>>138866270
He's a volleyball autist like Kageyama. His parents are divorced and he wants his dad to see him play, but he pretty much never shows positive emotion or personality.
>>
>>138866270
His daddy made him that way. Ushi's been programmed since he was a child that the only way to play volleyball was to maximize every advantage to its fullest and utterly destroy the opponent and be the absolute best. When he tells Kageyama that Shiratorizawa "didn't need a setter that doesn't serve the ace", he's absolutely serious about that. If Ushiwaka ever actually played for fun, that died out long before he was in high school because "only winning matters, and only the strongest win".
>>
>>138866318
>>138866361

Good shit. Actual family problems (sorry Tsuki but yours is pretty tame) that effects someone psyche.

You know this manga would be so much better if they incorporated more real world problems like grade issues, girl problems, money problems etc into the mix but it is still a read. I still find the series as a whole to be too sunny.
>>
>>138866270
>Does he get development?
He goes from being socially dense to absolutely murderous but he never fundamentally changes.
>>
>>138866437
Tsukishima's 'problems' are really crap.
>>
>>138866361
Now that I think of it, I feel like he actually showed a bit of a sense of humor when he copied Tendou's "I'm on fire" catchphrase.

Though, it is too bad he never really seemed to change his viewpoint much in the end.
>>
>>138866437
Shiratorizawa match was not very sunny at all. It was brutal and intense. Doesn't help that all of that team was very serious except Tendou, but he was pretty surreal.
>>
>>138866486
I have to agree. His brother obviously cared about him and just didn't want to look like a loser in front of them. Tsukki just cut him off and wanted to piss on everyone else who enjoyed volleyball.
>>
You just know someone is an immense retard that has no idea about what he's saying at all, when they leave a blank line after they quote a post, before typing.
>>
>>138866486
Yeah, his backstory was pretty lame. He didn't even have a proper reason for becoming a dick.

I think I like the worst Haikyuu (assuming that such a thing exists) more than I like your average best boy from any other series. Furudate = best boy god.
>>
>>138868788
>>138866641
I had gotten the impression that Tsukki didn't want to get attached to volleyball because he didn't want the same thing that happened to his brother to happen to him. If he'd just treat volleyball like a club activity alone it wouldn't be as big of a blow if he wasn't able to be a regular or if they'd lose. Sure, he handled the situation poorly, but he's a teenager. Teenagers make dumb decisions all the time.

What? Makes good compelling characters where you actually care about whether they win or lose? Plus I've never seen any one "resent" the winning teams. There's nothing wrong with feeling sad about a team losing, that means they cared and Furudate is doing a good job
