"Haikyu!!" is a volleyball anime that started this Spring 2014 season that I'm really enjoying. It's kinda like "Yowapeda" with great chemistry between all the team members. Hinata is the enthusiastic, high-jumping, but short, first year member who is just happy to be on a team. Kageyama is a self-centered first year settter who is learning to be a team player. Will they be the awesome combo the Karasuno Volleyball Club needs to win? Will there be a whiff of bromance every now and then? Hmm.

I really like the art style too with the characters looking not-too-moe but moe at the right times. Note these shots of Sugawara-senpai.
There is quite a bit of comedy in the series, but still a decent amount of actual sports action. I just finished episode 5 and they're about to start a match. I wonder if it will be a 3 episode long match? I'll find out in the next few weeks.
