> Do we know the name of these two girls? They are Sawamura manga buddies.
The manager girl. I like her better than the childhood friend.
How come no cutie for the new managers?
Who will be the first string? Wolf boy?
New shipping there, Fujo.
Really liking Okamura's version of Miyuki.
Not exactly, perhaps when he finishes the numbers. The current Sawamura is only more effective than Furuya. I hope the mangaka makes both of them to compete in equal grounds. Improving Swamura when Furuya became weak is cheap.
I always like manga better than anime so your logic fails me.
So they went to senbatsu (spring invitational). Sawamura pitched an embarrasing ball as his debut. They won two times and lost in third round to the winner of summer and then spring as well, Komadai Fujimaki. Furuya became a star for having the pitch war of the century to the current best pitcher Hongou Masamune. It makes Furuya broken.
Sawamura continues to perfect his number. A bit issue with some underclassman. They go touring for golden week, Sawamura pitched for Hiryuu game. He succeded in his role.
What's with antagonism toward Furuya ? Sawamura became an ace would be sweeter because besting Furuya is a feat.
The anime covers the first arc. No one translating the last inning because Sawamura was robbed. It just has to be the ace. I was enraged.
Oh someone completed the dumping. I will continue dumping the chapter every week, especially now that summer arc begins.
Given the popularity of Miyuki, there is no way they would not reach Koshien. So imminent Miwa. And how far will they go? If the first year could reach enough popularity, they will not win Koshien and will win in Sawamura's third year. Assuming the sale of the summer arc stays hugh.
I think they will not win. The mangaka especially introduce two good first year catcher for a reason. I like how wolf boy does not want to lose of Miyuki, but I want to see more of his interaction with Yui. Well. The reharsh of same position rivalry is redundant but he choose that route.
That's a good idea. But then, what's the use of an ace in a team who does not win ? The scenario when they lost in one match when Sawamura did wonders but no one scores is already used.
He is just too much. Suave, no 4, catcher, and captain.
The second year regular
A bit too silent? But he works hard and regular since first year.
Have a cool head, and so far looks like the kouhai respects him.
For sure, a vice-captain.
What's with the lack of charisma?
Kominato then. He is the only one that can handle both Sawamura and Furuya. I mean someone have to. Miyuki will be gone soon. Wolf boy can handle Sawamura. Yui is linked to Furuya for now. But someone has to be the third whell.
Just read it. Mei being based is worth it.
Kanemaru could be captain. For once I do want more story from another second year.
Yuki became the captain naturally. Miyuki became the captain since he is lifeline. I do like Kanemaru, but his presence in the team is minuscule compared to two previous captain.
Is there any way to purchase the special editon of 2nd tanks? Anyone?
Madhouse and Production IG made a good anime adaption, but the manga has a charm that illustrated the best in the spread page. Like some sort of epicness, manga only.
If presence is the key, it has to be either Sawamura or Furuya. Furuya can not talk for shit, and Sawamura needs someone else ro control him. It is between Tojo, Kominato, or Kanemaru.
secondbest boy Raichi done anything since he got wrecked by Mei?
Someone who has captain-like aura might appear later. I mean, Miyuki himself is becoming captain. and not a captain by nature. My vote went to Kominato or Tojo.
is there any rules for limiting the catcher? The four of them as regulars does not sound bad.
> Ace is Furuya.
I am scared we are on the ride already senpai.
Haikyuu has almost zero bait, stop being a faggot.
Fujos love every shonen that isn't a harem. You might as well never read anything with male characters in it with that logic.
Fujos also get regularly blown the fuck out since every time they get riled up Furudate introduces a new set of best girls and spends more time on them for a couple chapters than anyone else.
Why did his eyes turn blue again?
What is it with you haikyuufags getting triggered every time someone refers to your anime as 'fujobait'? According to /a/ every show with 2+ males is fujobait. It's just a term by now, not an insult.
No, the manager is greater. I like how her pannel shows a lot of her 'view'. Like when everyone is looking at Furuya in the mound, she foucuses on Sawamura on the side. I just like her for doing her job and silently support everyone.
The wolf boy is the most popular first year, his role will be prominent.
If you are Sawamurafag, just read the match with Mima.
I just re-read the whole manga during the spring break. The pace is actually allright when you read it in tanks. A bit surprised for that.
Summer is here and he does better than Furuya that fell into a slump. But that actully worries me. Furuya is having his arc now. What the outcome will be ?
That match sure is fun. We even have a failed Miyuki.
Aside of this chapter, this page also establish the fact that the current Furuya is lacking. But that gives me worries. Why furuya act now ? He is an important character and there is no why he will not get over this.
I wish so. I only want to know if they will still take Kaneda and Kawashima. They have 5 pitchers in the first string. 3 catchers and everyone else batter and fielder. The shortstop and second baseman is set in place. Zono is solid as first baseman as well. I hope Kataoka dropped one of the pitcher so wolf boy can join. That why we have another carcher and a good batter. He did score some RBI. I just want to see Yui and wolf boy in action.
There are 20 playes for first string, but they brought 23 during the gloden week games.
Furuya also plays as left fielder
Kaneda also plays as right fielder
Kawashima also plays as outfielder
Kijima also plays as first base coach
Mimura alsp plays as third base coach
This is their stats during the golden week. While Sawamura lost the least run, Furuya still has the most strikeouts, least hits, while playing in more innings. Ugh, I dont really like this.
The last clear show of batting line is the match verus Hakuryuu
Kuramochi - shortstop
Kominato - second baseman
Shirasu - right fielder
Miyuki - catcher
Maezono - first baseman
Furuya - left fielder
Toujo - centre fielder
Kanemaru - third baseman
Sawamura - pitcher
We are shown Yuki batting stat but none of Yui I think ? I still feel the lack of batting power to be worrisome.
Yui and Yuki can act as pinch hitter. Kanemaru and Sawamura are both too inconsistent as well.
Do yourself a favor and read the thread thank you.
We are in the middle of summer preparation. Furuya is now in his growth arc. Sawamura stabilized himself. Best boy Miyuki is still the most based player around.
Yuki has 4 at-bats in 6 games. 3 hits. 3 RBIs (2 double), and 2 blunders.
> batter who surpass my brother
He is still inconsistent if you ask me. If he wants to be the 4th batter (which the team is in dire need of), he has to do better.
I wont be afraid of wolf boy airtime. He is voiced by Uchida Yuuma after all. Yuki VA is quite nugu with no notable role. Well, Yuki does not talk much. Yui has not debuted yet in anime. Wonder who will voice him.
The baseman needs a backup so two for every position is a given. Kawashima was dropped during senbatsu, so Seki is the only one playing outfield ? I do remember Asou or Toujo moved to Outfield when Furuya played left. So much trust in Shirasu.
Shirasu is the current coverboy anon. What does he lack really.
>Sawamura becomes the ace
>first game he's in he gets hit in the arm and has to sit out for the rest of the season and Furuya has to immediately recover from his slump during that game
Sawamura isn't allowed to have nice things.
I have no objection. Furuya is misunderstood a lot. Many regards him like a villain rather than rival he is. Some sort of development is overdue.
Still, it's been a decade already. Please give number one to Sawamura.
>Dropped the anime
>Want to catch up with the manga
>I am here to tell you that cutting hair is not female character monopoly !
Zono is Kanemori of the third grade. The one who works hard and finally became a regular. In school like Seido a character like him is vital I think. People do follow him, notwithstanding his 'blunder' during Nabe fiasco.
Furuya used to be more of a relaxed character. To be honest I just dont want another Furuya ace arc. It's been so long and Sawamura finally got a chance. It does leave a bad taste that Sawamura luck out Furuya's slump but I will take it.
To be fair the manga has more humor in the past. It sells well so they let the mangaka does what he want.
Such a long live thread.
Since it's only 20 people, we have to drop more from the rooster. I say it's safe to say that they will drop Kaneda and Kawashima. Hiroomi just starts his introduction so he is safe.
My guess would be:
That's it. You can not really change the lineup during the tournament. So if anyone has to be dropped for more firt and open, it would be Ono with average batting and catching? But he is third year...
Because it's off season after all. It's like a warm up. My current concern is not the length of the match. It's the furuya arc that has to start now of all times.
>inb4 Sawamura suffers for enternity
There are a lot of third year. But compares to last year, the main core of the team is the second year. It is a good thing. It means that we will have Sawamura as the third year for sure. It sells well after all. More than 2m last year.
