Haikyuu season 6 is an eager wait for its fans, and with the rumors of season 6 doing rounds, let’s look at the essential details for the new season.
Haikyuu, essentially meaning “volleyball” in Japanese, is one of the most popular sports anime of recent times. It’s written by Haruichi Furudate and adapted by Production I.G. It’s about Shoyo Hinata, a young boy, after seeing a short high schooler from Karasuno High School Volleyball Team, decided he was destined to be the next Little Giant of Karasuno. He forms his team and joins a local tournament but gets easily defeated by “King of Court,” Tobio Kageyama.
After clearing his exams, he joins Karasuno High school and finds out he has an old enemy as a new teammate in Kageyama. Kageyama notices Hinata can strike the ball at inhuman speeds, so the infamous super quick is born. The show takes this backdrop and builds on many aspects of friendship, training, and rivalries.
When is Haikyuu Season 6 Coming out?
Production I.G, as of now, has not released any official announcement regarding the release date of Haikyuu Season 6. Additionally, there has even been no announcement for Haikyuu season 5. This news might come as a disappointment for many anime fans. It’s a regular occurrence in anime adaption as studios tend to take extended breaks before a new season, especially when the writer completed the manga in 2020.
Now there might be some confusion regarding the sequence of the seasons for some fans, especially with Haikyuu season 4. The series was released back-to-back from season 1 to season 3. But Haikyuu season 4 was released in two volumes. The first volume aired in January 2020 and the second in October 2020. Hence, many fans think that volume two was Haikyuu Season 5, but it’s not.
Haikyuu Season 5 Expectations and Release Date
If and when Production I.G reveals the release date, Hikyuu Season 5 is expected to continue from where Haikyuu Season 4 ended. In the finale, “Promised Land,” Karasuno High School came up trumps against a problematic rival in Inarizaki School. This ended the season with an emotional moment for all the team members while the pair of Kageyama-Hinata argued about who made the final block.
While Haikyuu season 5 may not be around the corner soon, it promises an exciting journey for the Karasuno High School Volleyball team. Having already qualified for the nationals, they will play many new teams, including Nekoma High School.
There have been only practice matches between the two teams; hence, the fans have been waiting to go head-to-head on screen is a much-anticipated rivalry. In the context of Haikyuu season 5, this battle will be the most important as it will reveal the character past of the member of Nekoma High School Volleyball Team.
It can also be expected that a new main rival or character to be introduced to face off against Shoyo Hinata Hinata and Tobio Kageyama. Another cliché prediction is a fight between two team members of the Karasuno High School Volleyball team. This will spice up the relationship between the characters and possibly one leading to a betrayal.
Haikyuu season 5 will have a flashback of the rivalry between coach Ukai and coach Nekomata. This will be pretty interesting as the fans will get to see the reason for the animosity between the two coaches.
Finally, Hinata in Haikyuu season 1 fell in love with volleyball despite his short height after seeing a player called “Little Giant .”The new season will also be expected to explore and possibly stage a meeting between them.
Haikyuu season 5 will be adapted from Chapter 293 of the manga.
