Haikyuu!! Season 2 – 12

Let the games (finally) begin.

Sorry, Haikyuu – I’ve never been more pressed for time as a blogger.  Season preview post is late, year-end-posts beginning, season finales everywhere, and traveling to boot.  I’m going to basically blow you off this week but don’t take it personally – you’re not ending and you speak for yourself pretty well, so my limited resources just don’t extend far enough to do you justice this time.

In short – good episode, as usual.  At long last, we’re finally getting meaningful game action – I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a sports anime go an entire cour without an official competition.  The first round of prelims for Karasuno is basically a zaku – they get a backstory but it’s pretty perfunctory.  Next up is a team whose main feature seems to be one really tall kid (202 cm) which is giving us a chance to see Shouyou stress over his height more than at any time this season,  But this isn’t the sort of team that eliminates the protagonists when there are so many fated challengers out there.

Final thought – I hope we get some sort of meaningful contribution by Suga soon.  At this point I’m starting to think his face should be on a milk carton.

    I actually have to take points off Haikyuu thanks to this one. Karasuno FINALLY wins a match after 700 loses all throughout this first cour, but when they do win, they have to make me feel bad about it because they crushed the hopes and dreams of a sympathetic team.

    Damn it, I just can't enjoy their victory.

    This is honestly one of the most well paced, well animated and funny anime that I have had the pleasure to watch in past 5 years or more and to think it would be a sports anime, the very genre I have shunned all this time until last year.

    And you literally made me LOL when you mentioned Suga being on a milk carton. Heh, all well till then we will have to make due with is one line interjections every episode.
