What Is Expected To Happen In Season 5 Of Haikyuu?
In the previous seasons, we have seen how a Junior High School student, Shoyo Hinata gains a rapid love and interest in volleyball after watching a game on television. Even his height is very short, but he didn’t care and became determined towards his goal to be like his favorite player, ‘Little Giant,’ after watching him playing on television. But his dreams get shattered after he plays his first match, as his team got severely defeated in the game against the junior championship favorite team, which includes the so-called ‘King of the Court’ Tobio Kageyama.
Shoyo Hinata tries to follow the ways of his mentor ‘Little Giant’ and enters Karasuno High School to defeat the so-called ‘King of the Court’ Tobio Kageyama and to make up with him as teammates. With the merger of genius qualities of Tobio Kageyama and Hinata’s love and passion for his game, the duo of both creates a brand new volleyball contrivance. The combo of both helps them to become even good friends, and an alliance is formed between two. This begins the journey of the Karasuno Boys Volleyball Team to the nationals.
In the new season, it is tough to say what can happen as there are no complications in the current seasons going on, and the story is developing with exciting situations. Karasuno has already entered the nationals and will play against different teams from all over the country. Some new faces are also introduced in the anime, and we can hope to see more of them in the upcoming seasons.
In the new season, to bring some more interest and excitement, we can expect a fight between the two teammates that can take some spice in the story. Even a new main character can be introduced in the team of both, which can create some differences between the duo of two resulting in the fall of their team.
Or we can say some good things can be observed like going of their team at the international level after winning the nationals and defeating all the local teams. Many expectations are there in different forms, and different stories are expected. There are no official announcements made regarding the plot of season 5, so we can’t do anything except wait for the release of the new season.
