In Haikyuu season 1 episode 17, as Karasuno battled Date Tech, the opposing ace targeted Hinata, forcing the team’s hand early in the game. It looked like Karasuno was all out of tricks. Will they be able to fight Date’s Iron Wall? In Haikyuu season 1 episode 18, Karasuno managed to win their first set but when the second set heated up, the team turned to Asahi. It was Karasuno’s win.
Hinata and Kageyama surprised everyone with their techniques. They surprised everyone with their ‘Devil Attack’. As Karasuno already had a spoiled reputation, it was important to play well, but with players like Kageyama and Hinata on Karasuno’s side, they had hope for themselves. The match turned out exactly how they expected it to.
Because of Karasuno’s consistent performance they won the first set. This was the first time they were genuinely happy with their performance. Everything went on as they planned. But on the other hand, Hinata was the hot topic in the Date Tech’s team. He was known as ‘Number 10’.
The coach of the Date Tech’s team strictly told the team to keep an eye on Hinata. Hinata became their sole target. As the second set started, Karasuno was already pumped with excitement but Date Tech’s players were filled with anger and a feeling of revenge. Aone and Futakushi were hell bent on blocking the ‘Number 10’ but Ukai being the coach of the team was well aware of this fact.
As this had already happened with them in their match with The Nekoma’s. Ukai decided to change their strategy by changing the team members positions. According to the new position Hinata and Aone were in the front together. This gave Asahi a better chance to spike the ball to the opponents side. As they strategised, the match went on well. It was neck to neck throughout.
The winning point was made by Asahi because of the great startegy made by Ukai. It was not just because Ukai planned it well but it was also because the Karasuno’s executed it well. Hinata shined like the man of the match. He really showed that Karasuno’s team is no less than the other teams of the prefectures. The Karasuno’s won the match with a lead of two points. But as they were leaving the court, they saw their rival team Aoba Johsai. They were filled with rage as Oikawa promised revenge to them.
Will Karasuno survive in the next matches?
