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?


We're in the latter half of the training camp, and the team is still getting used to working together. They're getting the hang of these new techniques, and some of them are even starting to work. But overall, they all need a lot more practice.
I am really starting to love this series. The enthusiasm is infectious, and seeing how excited and pumped up the characters get during a game and when something works right, it makes me excited. I just can't help grinning while reading this series at this point. And I'm not even a sports person! Part of this at times is also the humor. It's just funny, it's so good.
We got to see a lot of the Nekoma team, and the Fukurodani team in this volume. I really love the unique mix of characters, and how they all stand out and get their own personality. Seeing all of the camaraderie in this volume was great.
We'll be starting the spring tourney next, and that should be good. I think they're going up against a new school this time, and we'll get to see what their competition is like next. I seriously cannot wait.
