Group shot at the end of the OP
"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.
Kageyama and Hinata
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.
Cute senpai
Regular 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.
