This summer, VIZ Manga is set to release the highly anticipated first volume of HAIKYU!!, a high-octane, action-packed volleyball sports drama! Follow highschooler Shoyo Hinata on his journey to become the greatest volleyball player ever! With a short stature and a big heart, Shoyo is determined to be as good as his idol, “the Little Giant.”
After losing a devastating tournament match in his first and last game ever to Tobio Kageyama in middle school, Shoyo promises to be his rival and prove that height is just an obstacle he can leap over. Shoyo’s world turns upside down after learning Kageyama is also attending Karasuno High: how can you be sworn volleyball rivals if you’re on the same team?!
Creator Hariuichi Furudate began publishing HAIKYU!! in 2012 and has seen huge success ever since! His manga leaped from the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump and into the world of anime where the series became incredibly popular in both Japan and the United States. A third season is already in the works for release in Japan this year.
HAIKYU!! Volume 1 soars to brick and mortar shelves on July 5th, 2016 and is available in digital format through the VIZManga.com and other digital stores for iOS and Android devices. Do not miss out on this light-hearted, inspiring manga!
