Haikyu!! Season 5 Trailer
Although there won’t be a Haikyuu!! season 5, a teaser trailer for the finale films was released alongside the announcement.
The teaser shows snapshots of the series and highlights major characters before the title reveal.
Haikyuu!! is originally a manga series created by Haruichi Furudate and published in Weekly Shonen Jump. The series was published from February 2012 to July 2020.
The series follows Shoyo Hinata, a short boy in middle school with dreams of becoming a top volleyball player.
Shoyo is inspired by another short player from Karasuno High School whom he sees play and decides to join his school’s volleyball team.
Shoyo quickly finds out he is the only member of his school’s volleyball team. He spends all of his time in middle school practicing – only to be defeated in his first official match again Tobio Kageyama, his new rival.
After some intense exams, Shoyo is accepted into his dream Karasuno High School, although he finds out Tobio is now his classmate.
The two join the volleyball team, and the trials and tribulations of their high school volleyball life begin!
Haikyuu!! reached immense popularity during its publication. The series has over 55 million copies in circulation and is one of the most popular and best-selling manga series of all time.
The manga is licensed by Viz Media in North America and can be read on the Shonen Jump website and app.
The anime currently has four seasons. The first season of the anime adaptation, produced by Production I.G, aired in 2014, while Season 2 aired from 2015-2016. Season 3 aired in the second half of 2016, and Season 4 aired in 2020.
The series received compilation films summarizing events from the anime. Haikyuu!! the Movie: Ending and Beginning (Gekijō-ban Haikyuu!! Owari to Hajimari), the first film, was released in July 2015.
Haikyuu!! the Movie: Winners and Losers (Gekijō-ban Haikyuu!! Shōsha to Haisha), the second film, was released in September 2015.
The final two films, Haikyuu!! Genius and Sense (Haikyuu!! Sainō to Sense) and Haikyuu!! Battle of Concepts (Haikyuu!! Concept no Tatakai), were both released in September 2017.
Haikyuu!! also has a video game, radio drama, and a series of stage plays in Japan.
It seems that the Haikyu!! Final films will pick up right where Season 4 left off, but how much of the manga do they have left to cover?
Seasons 1 through 4 of the anime were adapted from chapters 1 through 292 of the manga.
It can be inferred that the new films will have to cover over 100 chapters of the manga to cover all of the source material.
Haikyuu!! fans on social media are hesitant about the series finale announcement, as some believe it will not be enough time for a satisfactory conclusion.
Regardless, the show goes on! Stay tuned for more Haikyuu!! announcements as the new films roll out.
