Our volleyball boys will soon be back in town, as the 2nd half of Haikyu!! season 4—officially titled Haikyu!! To the Top—will be premiering on October 2! To make fans more excited for their return, a new promo video was recently revealed for the series. Check it out here!
Haikyu! series author Haruichi Furudate also released a new visual to commemorate the anime’s return.
It will be remembered that season four’s second half (i.e., episodes 14-25) were supposed to premiere last July, but was delayed due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The new opening theme song will be entitled Toppakou (Beach) and will be performed by SUPER BEAVER. The ending theme song, One Day, will be performed by SPYAIR.
Haikyuu!! is a manga series written by Haruichi Furudate. Since its release in 2012, it has been serialized in the Weekly Shonen Jump, with tankobon releases done by Shueisha already numbering to 39 (with the 40th set to be released this November). Haikyuu!! already has over 34 million copies in print. Production I.G. adapted the manga into an anime series in 2014, with the second season airing the year after and a third season airing in 2016. Season 4’s episodes 1-13 aired last January.
The manga’s story centers around Shoyo Hinata, who dreams of becoming a star volleyball player despite his height. However, he suffers a crushing defeat in his first and last tournament in middle school at the hands of Tobio Kageyama, dubbed as “King of the Court”. After graduating, he vows to seek revenge on Kageyama and enters Karasuno High School—only for them to wind up as teammates in the school’s volleyball team. Thus the two form a legendary combo by combining Hinata’s athleticism and Kageyama’s genius and together, they vow to take Karasuno to the nationals.
