Finally, after a 6 months break Haikyuu Season 4 (Part 2) is out. Part 2 started airing in October 2020 and ended in December. Haikyuu Season 4 Part 2 has 12 episodes. Season 4 centered around the Spring National Tournament between Karasuno and Inarizaki. Binging the entire Season 4 at one go was a guilty pleasure. Haikyuu is the Best Sports Anime I ever watched. You can’t help but fall in love with the series.
Let’s recap what happened in Haikyuu Season (Part1). So in Part 1, Karasuno emerged as champions. Now they will face Inarizaki in the next round. Let’s start reviewing Part 2. But before we proceed any further, be careful of spoilers. Spoiler warning ahead!
Hinata makes a powerful jump as the match begins. But what caught me by surprise was that poor Hinata forgot to hit the ball in all his excitement. And of course the usual Hinata-Kageyama bickering by now we are used to it. We love it and look forward to it.
I gotta say the Inarizaki cheer squad was super annoying. It’s ok to cheer for your team, but booing your rivals is such an underhanded method. Karasuno did have a hard time due to them. Nekoma High was against Sarukawa Tech in the second round. Nekoma High defeats their rivals and advance to the next round.
Karasuno vs Inarizaki
Inarizaki has some power players. No wonder they were the favorite contenders. Inarizaki’s twins- Miya Atsumu and Miya Osamu were tough challengers for Karasuno. The twins perfectly copied the freak quick attack. The wing spiker Ojiro Aran and the team’s ace gave them a tough time.
The Miya twins recognized Hinata’s potential and knew he was a threat. Inarizaki’s middle blocker Suna Rintaro kept blocking Tanaka several times. It was refreshing to see Tsukishima and Rintaro go head-to-head.
Inarizaki targetted Karasuno’s libero Nishinoya. Nishinoya admits that he became scared of Atsumo’s serve. In a twist we see Tanaka requesting something from Kageyama. But guess what Kageyama declines! I liked Kageyama’s transition in this season. Kageyama had faith in Tanaka and together they delivered. That was one hell of a scene-stealer for me.
Haikyuu season 4 comes to a conclusion with Karasuno advancing to the next round. It was hard for me to pick an MVP from Karasuno. It was a team effort but Kageyama shined. Hinata was impressive, but without Kageyama, the victory would have not been easier. Who do you think is the MVP? Karasuno will face Nekoma high in the next round. Fukurodani Academy also advances to the next round.
It was an exciting journey to watch Haikyuu To the Top Season 4 Part 2. Haikyuu!! is the Best Sports Anime I have ever watched. The match was intense and spectacular. It was nice to see Hinata grow up and he shined in the game. Not only that, we get to see Kageyama finally get over his “Goody Two Shoes” struggle. The Miya twins were irritating but still, they gave a tough time to their opponents.
The occasional sneering from Tsukishima was so on point. You just love this guy. I had a lot of expectations from Season 4 and, I’m not disappointed. I’m eagerly waiting for the next season and hope that it’s out soon. Haikyuu!! To The Top Season 4 is now available on Netflix and other streaming sites.
