A tall, tall wall looms in front of me.
What's the view on the other side? What does it look like? The view from the top it's a view I could never see on my own.
But if I'm not doing it alone Let's play.
Haikyu!! Episode 1: The End & The Beginning All right.
Yukigaoka Electric Congrats Karasuno High School Score.
The "little giant" lives up to his name.
That's five points in a row.
Here we are at the National High School Volleyball Championship, spring season, where Karasuno High School's little giant has been springing up and down among players 190 centimeters tall.
Karasuno, is that the school in our neighboring town? Pretty impressive.
Sho-chan, hurry.
They'll take the court.
Karasuno Approximately 3 years and 3 months later Sho-chan wait up.
It's huge.
The smell of Air Salonpas! Sho-chan, you're too nervous.
They'll think you're a country hick.
B-But I've never been in a real tournament before.
Three years later and I'm finally here.
It's sure been a struggle to get here.
Izumi, Koji, thanks for being here for moral support.
Stop it.
Our tournament's already finished, so First-year students, you too, thanks! It's a miracle the three of you are here.
Oh, yes.
We're total amateurs, but Don't cry, Shoyo.
I'm not crying.
You're super tearful.
U-Um, Hinata-senpai, we should get started.
Come on, Captain.
Get on the ball.
That's right.
You dragged us here.
We don't even know the rules.
I know that.
We made it all the way to the tournament, we have to win.
National Junior High Team Sports Miyagi Prefecture Volleyball Tournament Combinations Championship What? You think we can win with our last-minute team pick? Of course.
What's our opponent Kitagawa Daiichi like? I don't know.
But we're going to do it.
Whoops, sorry! Come on.
They're huge.
What the Victory Kitagawa Daiichi Junior High School Kita-Ichi! Kita-Ichi! It's Kitagawa Daiichi.
They're huge.
They're so intimidating.
They're candidates to win.
The "king" is among them.
Who's that? Don't you know? It's Kageyama Tobio.
They call him the "King of the Court".
He's an amazing setter.
We're playing against those guys? What's this "king" stuff? Don't worry about it! Who cares how lanky they are?! I'll shoot past them.
That's right, Sho-chan's jump is amazing.
We're counting on you! But first, the bathroom I never even heard of Yukigaoka Junior High.
They're small in number it seems.
They don't even have a libero.
They're the height of elementary school kids.
They're no match for us.
Hey, dudes.
Don't underestimate us.
Soon as my stomach settles, I'll teach you guys a lesson, so be ready.
Is this guy serious? Yes, sir.
We'll be ready! Elementary school.
He's got the captain label on him.
Making fun of me Hey, second-year.
It's time for the official warm-up.
Hurry it up.
I'm sorry, right away.
Bad news, it's Kageyama-senpai.
Hurry up, two more energy drinks! We don't need to drink that much.
Just look at our opponent.
That's for sure.
What did you say? You guys.
You're not even on the bench.
You think you're good enough to look down on your opponent? Don't ride the coattails of your school's reputation.
S-Sorry! Scary I was going to tell them a thing or two myself, too.
You're not even physically ready.
Don't talk big.
That's why they look down on you.
What did you say? What are you doing here, anyway? Making memories? I came here to win.
Nothing else.
You make it sound so easy.
Sure, I'm not tall.
But I can jump.
You can't assume we'll lose, as long as we don't give up— "Don't give up.
" That's not as easy as it sounds.
The six of us the six of us can finally play volleyball on the court.
The first game, second game We'll win and keep winning.
We're going to give it our all! The first game, second game, the playoffs, the nationals I'm going to win them all.
Why are you making that scary guy mad? Weren't you going to the bathroom? Let's get back, hurry.
How's your stomach ache? It's all gone.
Huh? Crap.
He's good for real.
He's a setter.
That's him, the so-called "King of the Court," Kageyama Tobio.
By the way, what's a "setter"? That's the offensive position that tosses the ball.
Setter We studied it, remember? We did? Your timing is slow.
"Come in faster for the quick," I told you.
My bad.
Kageyama, don't focus on speed alone.
What matters is not your own skills, it's how you let the spiker hit the ball.
I know that.
This is it.
It's finally about to start.
Let's play.
Our opponents sure are short.
Your back number.
Show your back number.
Huh? Koji.
Don't worry about it.
Nice serve.
Kitagawa Daiichi Yukigaoka Oh man, they probably won't score a point.
Fine by me.
It'll be over quicker.
That's a fact.
Don't worry.
Don't worry.
Let's do better next round.
Uh yeah.
We finally got here.
We won't let it end so easy.
What? I'm the only club member? Yeah.
The club members got less and less every year.
Plus, boys' volleyball isn't a club activity.
It's just a fan club.
Oh What do you want to do? Change to another club? Or do you want to join the girls' team? Well, no I'll be a one-man team then.
Is that right? I'm going to be the little giant.
You're going to be the what? Nice serve.
Here Gather round! Let's go for a run.
My chance.
Izumin! You're taking a break right? Toss for me.
"Toss"? I want to spike the ball.
I can't.
I don't know how.
You just toss it up.
That's all you have to do.
I can't.
Senpai's watching.
Gather up.
Right! Hey, Hinata.
I heard you're on the girls' volleyball team.
Are you serious? N-No, I'm not.
Who are you after? There's a foxy third-year senpai.
There is a foxy senpai, but I knew it.
You got it wrong.
I'm the boys' volleyball team.
Victory Kitagawa Daiichi Junior High School You can't even enter a tournament.
What drives you to practice? I'll enter a tournament.
I'll get a team together, though I'm striking out for now.
But I will, you'll see.
How about you, Koji? How many times must I turn you down? Hey, Izumin! Can you spare just a little time? I have after-school class today, sorry.
Kitagawa Daiichi Yukigaoka I'm sorry.
Watch out! Shoyo, are you all right? Ouch My bad.
Toss for me then.
I got it this time Koji.
Hey, haven't you had enough? My arms hurt.
I can't shoot the ball accurately.
I've had it.
Just one more.
First-year students agreed to join me.
You keep saying "one more.
" This is the last one, okay? Got it.
Here goes.
Oh, sorry.
Go, Sho-chan! Sure, I'm little, but my legs can jump over any wall.
All right! Sho-chan, don't worry about it.
We'll toss it for you again.
That was a good toss, too I'll get it in next time.
Haikyu!! Haikyu!! ++Yukigaoka Kitagawa Daiichi Wow, that number 5 is a powerhouse.
Yukigaoka is sneaking a few points in, in the second set.
Thanks to their opponent's misses.
It's up.
This is bad I can't see the other side at all.
The opponents are totally seeing through their plays.
That guy's got amazing jumping power.
Shoyo, let's do this.
Sho-chan, don't worry.
Close call.
Faster! Nice.
Reckless tosses today, as usual.
I know.
The opponents can't even block; what's the point? What's he so serious about? When will you guys get serious then? Stop it.
We're in a game.
++Yukigaoka Kitagawa Daiichi Scary.
Kita-Ichi's setter is good, but it's like he's playing out there all by himself.
All right.
Service ace again.
Not yet.
He won't get that.
It hasn't dropped yet.
Not yet.
Sho-chan! Wow.
Looks painful.
He's trying hard.
++Yukigaoka Kitagawa Daiichi One more point and it's curtains for Yukigaoka.
Damn it Excuse me, um I Sorry.
I'll get the next one.
Um! We don't want to get injured.
We're out of their league to begin with One more, same way.
Why must you do this? Um what? Huh? I don't know what you mean.
But we haven't lost yet.
That's right.
It's simple.
No matter how challenging the volley, there's only one reason we chase the ball.
The ball hasn't hit the court yet.
There's only one reason we continue fighting.
Because we haven't lost yet.
One touch! You touched it! Cover it! I can't do this Score.
--Yukigaoka Kitagawa Daiichi Don't give up on the ball! M-My bad.
We haven't won yet.
You can't let down your guard.
I know, but look at the points.
Not unless a miracle happens That last point was no miracle.
He scored a genuine point.
That guy.
He scored a genuine point.
Well, sure, but As long as we don't give up It's in the net! It's dropping, forward, forward! All right, Sho-chan, we're counting on you.
Toss miss? There was no double hit.
But there was no one there We should've been on the left.
We had it marked.
So why why is he here? Sho-chan! You there, are you all right? O-Out? ++Yukigaoka Kitagawa Daiichi Sho-chan, are you hurt? This guy overwhelms me.
We scored only because their setter missed.
He knew there was no back set, yet he still hit the ball? He was able to handle that toss? Sho-chan.
We have to line up.
High level of physical agility and reflexes.
Hey, Kageyama.
What are you doing? Get in line! Finely tuned bodily control and his obsession with victory.
He's got it all.
What were you doing for the last three years? What did he say? Stay out of it.
What do you know about what he did the last three years? What's the point of telling him about that? Yeah, but My first and last official match of junior high Boys, hurry up and get in line.
Sho-chan, let's line up.
++Yukigaoka Kitagawa Daiichi Our sets: zero.
Total game time: only 31 minutes.
"King of the Court," huh He's going to be a difficult opponent when he starts high school.
My money's on that little guy.
Karasuno High Volleyball Club What did you expect? They're candidates for the nationals.
Man, I'm hungry.
You're always hungry.
It doesn't matter if they're strong or weak, the bottom line is whether we win or lose, and if we lose, we're off the court for good.
Shoyo? You If you're the king that rules the court, I'll have to defeat you, and I'll be the last one standing! The last ones standing are the victors.
Only the strongest.
If you want to be the last one standing, become strong.
What I'm lacking Thank you for today.
You don't have to thank us.
Huh? Why are you crying Koji? I'm not crying.
