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! Who says you need to be tall to play volleyball when you can jump higher than anyone else?


The first set ends, and it's a bit of a hit to Karasuno. They start in the second one, and they're still perfecting themselves and fighting hard. For a while, they're essentially letting Nishinoya get used to Ushijima's spike, which is lethal. He's also left-handed, which apparently makes a huge difference. And finally Noya's on the right track.
In the second set, they're fighting hard, giving it their all and really working hard to keep their points even. It's a back and forth, and we see each player putting their all into it, into every move and how they watch the ball. It seems that Tsukki, in particular, is getting tired of being underestimated, and is fighting back.
It's hard to tell if this game is going to continue beyond another volume or not, but it's intense. I'm in for it.
