So, without further ado, here is a lowdown on Haikyu‘s new movie, including its plot details, release date and returning voice cast.
‘Haikyu The Movie: Decisive Battle at the Garbage Dump’: What will be its plot?
Haikyu follows the story of Shoyo Hinata, who becomes obsessed with volleyball after watching the Karasuno High School playing in Nationals on television. During middle school, he joins the volleyball club and suffers a crushing defeat at the hands of his rival Tobio Kageyama. Years later, he joins the Kurasuno High School’s volleyball team in order to take revenge from Kageyama. But here’s the exciting twist: Kageyama is also on Kurasuno’s team! Soon, the former rivals form a legendary duo with Hinata’s mobility and Kageyama’s precision ball-handling combining to take on the local tournaments.
The fourth season of the anime series focused on Karasuno’s journey to the Nationals. To summarise its plot, the team managed to advance to the third round, defeating the Inarizaki team. Now, the movie will pick up from here to cover the keenly awaited clash between the Karasuno and Nekoma teams.
Additionally, the movie’s name is derived from Chapter 294 in the manga series titled Haikyu!! Gomisuteba no Kessen (The Dumpster Battle). So, those who have read the manga series will have a fair idea of what will be part of the movie’s storyline.
