A Sports genre show would usually sound quite bland to anyone who is not enthusiastic about sports in general. However, things are quite different in the world of anime. Irrespective of whether a person likes sports or not, sports genre anime never fails to impress. A prime example of an anime that everyone absolutely adores is Haikyu!!. The anime became significant since its release, reaching out to several fans through its intriguing plot, top-notch character development, and oh-so-amazing character designs. The anime has released four seasons so far and received a massive amount of positive remarks from fans all over the globe. Haikyu!! season 5 has been quite a mystery all this while and I bet everyone is curious to learn more about it.
Haruichi Furudate’s Haikyu!! is considered one of the best-written sports manga. Rightfully recognised, the manga brings in reality with the right amount of fiction to present us with a story that can ignite a certain amount of love for volleyball. Its ability to deliver the same emotions to its audience is absolutely breathtaking. Several fans have been following the anime for a long time. Clearly, the anticipation for Haikyu!! season 5 is just as lively. The journey of Hinata and Kageyama has been absolutely intriguing and people are more than curious to know what will happen ahead.
Here is everything we know about Haikyu!! Season 5 and what to expect from it.
The fourth season of Haikyu!! aired in two cours and finally concluded in December 2020. Following the success of the anime adaptation, the manga also sold like hotcakes. As per a recent census performed in November 2020, the manga has sold about 50 million copies. With the high sales of manga and trending popularity of the anime, there’s every possibility that Haikyu!! season 5 will definitely happen. The anime has not been renewed for season 5 but are quite sure that we may receive an announcement any time soon.
The Haikyu!! anime was released consecutively from 2014 throughout 2016. However, after season 3, the anime faced a big gap. The coronavirus pandemic was also one of the major reasons why the fourth season got delayed. Yet, the fourth season resumed with a new director (Masako Sato). Considering that it’s almost been a year since the fourth season’s release, season 5 might already be on the way. Season 4 also received a certain amount of backlash after the anime’s animation quality degraded as Production IG shifted its studio. However, the anime is still very much in demand and we might receive Haikyu!! season 5 towards the end of 2022 at the latest.
If the fifth season of Haikyu!! was to be released, there’s a huge chance that Production IG will resume to animate it. Either Susumu Mitsunaka (who directed seasons 1, 2, and 3) or Masako Sato may also direct the fifth season.
Season 5 of Haikyu!! is being anticipated desperately. The ending of season 4 marked the Karasuno team advancing ahead in Nationals after defeating Inarizaki. This was yet another huge milestone, especially defeating the Miya Twins. However, Haikyu!! has several important checkpoints still left. The next match is one we have been waiting forever since season 2 of the anime aired. Season 5 of Haikyu!! will feature
The Battle of the Garbage Dump. For a long time, fans have waited for the match between Nekoma and Karasuno. There is so much history between these teams that we can’t help but look forward to it.
The two teams have only faced off once long back and have never had the chance to do it again for generations. Both the teams have several genius characters that we have developed a liking for. Watching this match is going to be so much more exciting. Haikyu!! season 5 is yet to be announced but while we wait, you can watch all the previous seasons of Haikyu!! on Netflix. Alternatively, you can also read the manga on Viz Media or Shueisha’s Manga Plus app.
