Fangirl Moment: Haikyuu Season 3

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday!! So this week I’m going to return to a series I covered in a previous Fangirl Moment post…. Haikyuu! If you’ve seen my twitter lately, you’ll know that one post was not enough for this amazing series!! So, I’m back with more volleyball induced fangirling with this week’s post about Haikyuu Season 3!

This pic shows the emotional stages I went through while watching season 3 of Haikyuu…

The entire ten episode season covered the final qualifying match for the Spring High Tournament, between Karasuno High and the current national champion team Shiratorizawa. I was literally on the edge of my seat throughout every episode, and the pay off was better than I could have ever dreamed!!

**This post will contain spoilers for Season 3 of Haikyuu, so read at your own risk!**

I can’t believe how much the Karasuno team has grown since the start of the series! In season one we see the rebirth of the Karasuno team as they fight to reclaim their former glory as one of the top high school teams in Japan. In season two, we see the newly reformed Karasuno Crows trying to find their groove as a team, with each player growing as they learn to work together as a collective. This season saw a great deal of growth not just from the first years, but everyone  on the team! Then comes season three, which builds upon the first two seasons, after all of the setbacks and hardships faced early we finally get to see the team in action during one of their toughest matches yet!

I’m not gonna lie, but I seriously thought Karasuno was going to get their asses handed to them… I know, I know, I’m a horrible fan and I will accept whatever comes my way for admitting that. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Crows as much as the next fan, but even I had to admit that they were out of their league with the Shiratorizawa team… So when they not only went toe to toe with the #1 team in the country, but actually beat them, I was honestly surprised! It wasn’t an outright victory either, Karasuno had to fight tooth and nail for that win and I couldn’t have been more proud of them! But, what really blew me away about this season was their growth as a team.

It’s no secret that there are no outright stars on the Karasuno team, each member has their own strengths and weaknesses and each player gets their time in the spotlight… But, this season we really saw the rise of Tsukki!

Kei Tsukishima aka Tsukki, was the real MVP of season three!

OH MY GOSH!!! Tsukki, killed it this season! He went from not caring about the team at all, to giving it all on the court and I couldn’t have been more proud of my boy. The usually apathetic Tsukki really stepped up as a player and you could really tell that he wanted to win just as much as the rest of the team… it was a sight to behold! He was an integral part of this victory…

But, the players that were most affected by this win were the third years! They were with the team when they were at their lowest point, when making it to the finals was just a pipe dream… So for them to not only make it to the qualifying playoffs, but to also beat the number one team in the country… they never imagined they’d be able to do it! So that emotional hug between the third year trio, brought tears to my eyes… it was just so beautiful! I felt their excitement, it was a long road from season one and this victory was a testament to all of their hard work and determination! I’m still recovering from that moment, heck, I’m still recovering from the entire series, and I can’t believe there aren’t any more episodes! :'(  I know I’m not alone in wishing that the studio will put out a season four in the near future, but for now, I’ll just have to re-watch seasons 1-3 to keep the Haikyuu withdrawal at bay….

  1. Saw season 3 and loved it. To be honest, I already knew the outcome of the game, but even if I knew it, I was still stressed.
    OMG Tsukki, talk about character development here. See his character change through the series was great!!

    1. Really?! How? Do you read the manga?

      LOL Haikyuu is like that, every episode keeps you on the edge of your seat!

      Yes!! Tsukki was one of my favorites before, but season 3 shot him straight up to the top of my favorites list!! He really stepped up!!

      1. Lol, To be honest I actually spoil myself, and look online for the result 😅 hoping it will help to not get to stressed, but it didn’t work😂

      2. I do the same thing with love triangles! I look up the victorious guy at the beginning so I don’t get my heart broken rooting for the guy who doesn’t get chosen.

        Lol Haikyuu is one of those shows that you can never really prepare for, just gotta ride the emotional waves

      3. The same thing with Kuroko no Basuke, I looked at the result, hoping I will not get stressed, but I could stay calm . I knew the final result, but I still stressed, having mini heart attack, each time the other team was marking.

Gush about cute otome boys~
