Goodreads Synopsis:

Shoyo Hinata is out to prove that in volleyball you don't need to be tall to fly!

Ever since he saw the legendary player known as “the Little Giant” compete at the national volleyball finals, Shoyo Hinata has been aiming to be the best volleyball player ever! He decides to join the team at the high school the Little Giant went to—and then surpass him. Who says you need to be tall to play volleyball when you can jump higher than anyone else?

After having overcome the Iron Wall of Date Tech, it’s finally time for Karasuno to have their rematch with Aoba Johsai! Kageyama and Karasuno claimed victory in the practice match, but how will they fare in a real game? Tensions are high as Tohru Oikawa is out to crush Kageyama once and for all.


Karasuno continues their game against Date Tech, and it's intense. They're trying hard, and they're ever optimistic. Date Tech proves to be a very good competitor, too, with their Iron Wall that makes it very hard to hit past.
When that game ends, the group gets to go home for a night, then are back the next day. They get a little practice in, and to talk about their next competition—this time with Blue Castle. Blue Castle proves to be even harder, with their head man good at encouraging his team mates and very watchful of subtle movements.
Oikawa's team mates like him and look up to him, and I do admit that he's good at working his teammates. But he's also a huge jerk, and I don't like him at all. I honestly don't see how anyone else does, when he feels rather fake to me. He's definitely smart, though.
We're left on yet another cliffhanger, and I really can't wait to see what happens next. I want to see how this game end—I'm really not sure if they're going to go forward or not.
