However, his dreams are destroyed in his first official match, where his team suffers a crushing defeat against the Junior championship favorite team, which includes the so-called “King of the Court” Tobio Kageyama.

Hinata vows to follow in the footsteps of the “Little Giant” and enter Karasuno High School to defeat Kageyama, only for the two to wind up as unlikely teammates. By combining the genius-like qualities of Kageyama with Hinata’s sheer athleticism, the duo creates a brand-new volleyball tactic. Their new combo allows them to get over their differences and creates a strange alliance between the two filled with fun and laughter for them and their teammates. Thus begins the Karasuno boys’ volleyball team’s journey to the top.”
