Haikyuu to the Top is Finally Here! – Thoughts on Episode 1 “Introductions”

Haikyuu-To-the-Top-Visual.jpgWe’ve been waiting almost four years for this new season and after watching episode 1 – Introductions, I can honestly say it was worth the wait! The series is back and in full form, the cast is back and everyone gets their fair share of screentime. I missed my Haikyu!! boys so it was nice to kind of get reacquainted with everyone. The first half of the episode was just so nostalgic, everything was just so spot on, from Kageyama and Hinata having one of their usual pissing contests right off the bat to the third years just being so over the younger team member’s shenanigans to Tsukki being so smug about surpassing 190 cm. All my old Haikyu!! just came flooding back full force and this is just the first episode!

10 Reasons You Should Be Watching Haikyu!!

Haikyu!! is based on the ongoing Weekly Shounen Jump manga series by Haruichi Furudate. It’s one of the most popular sports series and the anime was recently voted the Sports Anime of the Decade over on Funimation… which is huge since Haikyu!! beat out the likes of Free and Yuri!! On Ice. The series follows the members of the Karasuno High Volleyball Club as they attempt to rebuild their team and win Nationals. It sounds like the premise of just about every other sports anime under the sun, but there is just something special about Haikyu!! that get’s your blood pumping! From the intense volleyball matches to the dynamic cast of characters to it’s compelling character drama, Haikyu!! is hands down one of my favorite anime series of all time!

Haikyu.jpg

I blame Kat Sade for my Haikyu!! obsession, because without her I would have never discovered this amazing series! This series single-handedly got me interested in the sports anime genre, I binge watch the entire series every couple of months and no matter how many time I watch this series I find my self falling even more in love with the characters and the music… and just everything! Like many in the Haikyu fandom I am eager for the premiere of the LOOOOOOOOONG awaited 4th season, Haikyu: To the Top on January 10th.

There are still a few days left before season 4 starts, which is plenty of time to catch up on the series. But, if you’re still on the fence about Haikyu!! here are 10 Reasons You Should Be Watching Haikyu!!

#TheAnimangaFestival – Set Sailing: Why I Love KuroTsuki

Hey Hey Guys, as many of you know, The Animanga Festival is in full swing! But, if this is your first time hearing about the festival, here’s the cliffnotes explanation: Auri and Nairne over at Manga Toritsukareru Koto doing it big for their third (second) Bloggiversary, by hosting the Animanga Festival. This month long celebration will feature themed posts, events, and games that the entire Aniblogger community is encouraged to participate in throughout the month of October. I just happen to be one of the many bloggers participating in the event and everyone has been putting out a lot of great content and it’s only the second week. I’m a bit behind with my Animanga Festival posts, but I just couldn’t pass up on writing something for the October 9th prompt: Set Sailing!

Ever shipped two characters that were non canon but would actually make a great pair? Well, now’s your chance to shine. Head out, explain your stance to support your ship and set sailing!

-Set Sailing Prompt

And of course anyone that knows me knows that I am a huge fan of one particular Haikyu ship…. KuroTsuki is my OTP Haikyu ship! You can keep your TsukiYama and I don’t wanna hear about KuroKen, for me, Kuroo Tetsuro and Tsukishima Kei are a match made in heaven. So of course, it only made sense that I’d write about KuroTsuki for the Set Sailing prompt, it’d be criminal not to share my love for the BEST SHIP IN THE SERIES!!

[OWLS Blog Tour] It Takes a Village: Four Phenomenal Anime Mentors

Hey Hey Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs, I’m back with another super special awesome OWLS Blog Tour! What’s that you say? You don’t know about OWLS? Well, for those of you new here, OWLS or Otaku Wariors for Liberty and Self-Respect is a group of bloggers, vloggers, and writers who seek to promote acceptance and equality through thoughtful community activism, with an otaku twist! Each month we decide on a theme and each member writes a post or records a video, on that theme through the lens of something from pop culture. We have been known to cover a wide range of topics, from anime and manga to video games and film, most subject matter is up for discussion so long as it fits with our monthly theme.  This month’s theme is Mentor!

Throughout our lives, we might have encountered someone that we admired as a role model or has guided us in some life dilemma. This mentor could be a teacher at school, a coach, a boss or team leader at work, or a family friend. Whoever it is that person impacted your life in a positive manner. For this month’s OWLS topic, we will be writing about mentors or mentorships in anime and other pop culture media. Some topics we will be exploring include how a mentorship impacted a main character’s life, the types of mentor relationships a person could have, and/or personal stories about mentors or mentorships.

July “Mentor” Blog Tour Prompt

I’m just one in a long line of Blog Tour stops this month, and I highly recommend checking them all out when you have the time. Just before me was Miandro from Miandro’s Side, with his awesome post about Detroit: Become Human.

I originally planned on writing about a specific mentor/mentee relationship, but, ultimately I just couldn’t decide on a single mentor/mentorship to discuss, so, I scrapped my original idea and decided to go in a different direction. Since there really isn’t a one size fits all mentor relationship, I figured why not discuss multiple types of mentors and the benefits of their methodologies. So, I picked four anime mentors that I felt best represented each of the four core mentor archetypes (which now that I think about it seems like more work on my part).

[KuroTsuki Day 2018] My 11 Favorite KuroTsuki FanFics!!

ks day

LOOK AT THESE DORKS!!!

It’s 1/11 and that means it’s KuroTsuki Day!! Awww yeah, it’s finally my time to shine!! As many of you that don’t know, I’m a huge fan of Haikyuu, but did you also know that I am a supporter of the Kuroo Tetsurou/ Tsukishima Kei ship?! Well, if you didn’t you’ve been living under a rock, since fellow blogger Kat (GrimmGirl.com) and I have a bit of a friendly rivalry going on, she supports TsukiYama, while I support the far superior ship KuroTsuki…. there have been many a Twitter battle dedicated to these ships. But, that’s neither here nor there, since my ship is obviously the best! #ShotsFired  #KuroTsuki4Lyfe I kid…

So, in honor of this magical day, I am going to share eleven of my favorite Kuroo x Tsukishima fanfics in hopes of swaying some of you over to the dark side!

evil laugh

But, seriously, I really like this ship, so I hope you guys will enjoy these fics as much as I did (and still do)! So let’s get this show on the road shall we! (links are in the titles)

I Ship It: 5 Non-Canon Couples That Totally Should Have Been Canon- BL Edition

Have you ever seen two characters that you knew were perfect for one another? Friends that have known each other since they were in diapers. Or maybe bitter rivals that hate each other, but still somehow harbor a deep respect for one another. Or perhaps, they’re the unstoppable baka duo on a high school sports team. I’m talking about those bonds forged through a deep emotional connection between two characters, the kind of bond that transcends the confines of the author’s original intent! RELATIONSHIPS BORN FROM THE HOPES AND DREAMS OF FANS… BEAUTIFUL DELUSIONS THAT GIVE A MIDDLE FINGER TO THE CANON SENSIBILITIES OF THE CREATORS!!

It’s shipping.

I’m talking about shipping…

Whether you love it or hate it, shipping is an integral part of every fandom. If two characters so much as breathe the same air as one another, I guarantee there is a person out there that ships it. But, are shippers really as crazy as folks make them out to be? Is there any basis for their pairings? Are there secret hints hidden in the source material that supports these ships? *shrugs noncommittally* I’m kind of on the fence about shipping, on one hand I do ship characters and I quite enjoy fanfiction, but, I also don’t go out of my way to ship X character with Y character while watching or reading something… that is unless the subtext is blatantly obvious, and that’s how this post was born!

There are times when the subtext is just so in your face you can’t help but connect the dots. In this post I’m going to spotlight 5 non-canon pairings that should have been canon, because… reasons!! This list is not in any particular order, I just listed the pairings in the order they came to me, which I suppose could be used to suss out which pairings are my favorite… but, it’s not. My real OTP isn’t even on this list because as much as I hate to admit it, there really isn’t any in series evidence for the pairing… not that it stops me from loving that particular ship. So, all aboard, this ship is about to set sail!!

[OWLS Blog Tour] A Year in Lessons: Looking Back at Blog Tours Past

 

Hey Hey Heroes, Travelers, and Wanderings NPCs, today I’m bringing you all another super special awesome OWLS post!! If this is your first time here at Nice Job Breaking It Hero, you were probably linked here by Lita Kino, she did a super special awesome Birthday/Blog Tour combo post over on her blog, Lita Kino’s Anime Corner!! If you haven’t read her post yet, I highly suggest you do so, she did a phenomenal job!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I joined OWLS: Otaku Warriors of Liberty and Self-Respect, but here we are with a few days left in 2017 and I am so glad I became a part of this wonderful group! For those of you that are new here and haven’t heard about OWLS, we are a group of bloggers and vloggers that hope to spread a message of acceptance and understanding through thoughtful community activism!

So, in order to spread our message of self acceptance and tolerance, we’ve decided to hold Monthly Blog Tours! During Blog Tours, we each write individual theme posts on our blogs that promote our group’s values, with a bit of an otaku twist. December’s Blog Tour topic is Warmth!!

It’s the season of joy, thankfulness, and love. This month’s topic is “Warmth.” Whether it is spending time with family members during the holiday season or with that special someone during New Year’s Eve, we will be discussing moments in anime and pop culture media that convey a feeling of happiness in our hearts. During times of struggles, we look towards the things that matter to us as a source of strength, hope, and happiness. We hope you enjoy this round of posts and that you, too, will have a wonderful holiday season!

Fangirl Moment: Kuroo Tetsurou

Hey Hey all you wonderful Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs! It’s Friday and that means another Fangirl Moments post, the series where I fangirl over anything and everything, from anime and manga to movies and books, everything up for grabs!

Last week, I covered the animated Netflix series, Voltron: Legendary Defender, so if you missed that post definitely check it out!! This week I’m doing things a little differently, instead of covering a form of media, I’m going to talk about a specific character and instead of doing a character analysis, I’m going to do a Top 5 list, because *whispers* I’m writing this from my work computer and my supervisor is coming into the office to shadow…. and this post is kind of time sensitive.

TetsuroKuuro

So today, November 17th is the birthday of my favorite Haikyuu captain, Kuroo “Bedhead” Tetsurou, and in honor of his b-day, I’m going to write about the Top 5 Reasons Kuroo is the Captain of My Heart!! Okay that sounded way better in my head…

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge: Days 16- Favorite Uniform

It’s day 16 of the 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge and I’m going to share with you guys my favorite uniform!

haikyuu challenge

Since this challenge didn’t come with any instructions or anything like that, I’m going to assume they mean  volleyball uniforms and not school uniforms. Though if you want to know, I am partial to the Nekoma High school uniform, that sweater vest and blazer combo is to die for!

But that’s neither here nor there… As for my favorite volleyball uniform, that’s another matter entirely! I thought about this long and hard, and after much deliberation I decided to go with….

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge: Days 15- Favorite Animal Representation

I’m failing so hard at this challenge, hopefully I can be a bit more consistent from now on (no promises). I’m not one for excuses, so let’s get this show on the road, shall we… We’re up to day 15 of the 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge and today’s prompt is My Favorite Animal Representation. 

haikyuu challenge

I have to give it to the creator of this challenge, this is definitely a unique prompt and a challenging topic to write about. There are so many great teams in Haikyuu and each one has their own unique animal representation, each with their own merits. So, choosing one over the others is not an easy task… Okay, so really it was only hard to choose between just three teams and their animal representations and you can probably guess which ones…

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge: Days 14- Favorite Friendship

Ah yeah, I’m still late with this post, but since I have a bit more to say about this topic, I’m not doing a double post today! Yay?! In my defense I have been reading Haikyuu fanfiction all week so it’s not like I was completely neglecting my love of the series…

haikyuu challenge

I had a hard time choosing what to write about for this prompt, since there are so many great friendships in this show. Hell, you could argue that the show focuses more on the bonds the characters share with one another than it does on volleyball…. but that would be preposterous. So, rather than picking one friendship, I picked three!!*Ahem* My favorite friendships in Haikyuu are….

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge: Days 12 & 13- Favorite Manager & Favorite Non- Player Character

Alright, I got caught up with this really amazing fanfic and work has been kind of hectic, so i wasn’t able to write these posts during my free time like I originally planned. Ah, the perks of being an adult and a nerd… Anyway, since my answers for these two days are kind of short, I figured I’d just combine them like I did with days 10 and 11!

haikyuu challenge

This post is gonna have a lot of girl power, since both of my picks happen to be some pretty phenomenal women! I’m not going to drag this out much so, without any further ado, here are my Day 12 and Day 13 picks!!

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge: Days 10 & 11- Favorite Libero & Favorite Team Captain

Yesterday was my birthday, so I definitely missed writing the Day 10 prompt. Rather than write separate posts for Day 10 and Day 11, I decided to just combine them into one post! Don’t worry, this won’t be a super long post, like the previous challenge posts, this one will be pretty straightforward.

haikyuu challenge

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 9: Favorite Setter

I missed posting this yesterday, I was out all day yesterday (got an early start on my birthday), so today will be another double header (expect Day 10 later on today)!

haikyuu challenge

Okay so for yesterday’s prompt, I was supposed to write about my favorite setter… There’s only one character that comes to mind…. and… it’s….

Continue reading “30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 9: Favorite Setter”

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 8: Favorite Middle Blocker

Well, what can I say, this is going to be a super short post since I already declared my love for middle blockers in Day 6 post. On top of that, I have two favorite characters that both just so happen to be middle blockers and I already wrote about both of them….

haikyuu challenge

It should be fairly obvious who I’m talking about, buuuuuut, if you’re still in the dark here’s a hint: They are my favorite Haikyuu ship! 

Continue reading “30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 8: Favorite Middle Blocker”

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 7: Favorite Wing Spiker

We’ve finally reached the set of prompts that require a bit more thought. As much as I love Haikyuu, I have to admit that I am not very good at remembering which positions each character plays. I mean, yeah, I know the positions of all of Karasuno’s starting line up and the positions of the most prominent rival players (Kuroo is a middle blocker, Bokuto is a wing spiker, and Oikawa is a setter), but for everyone else I have to constantly reference the Haikyuu wiki page.

haikyuu challenge

So, these next few prompts (Day 7- Day 11) will require a bit more effort on my part, since I’ll have to dig deep. I guess I could just pick characters from Karasuno and save myself s a bit of work, but that wouldn’t be much fun… We’ll just see how this all pans out, as for today’s prompt, my favorite wing spiker is…

Continue reading “30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 7: Favorite Wing Spiker”

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 6: Favorite Volleyball Position

Alright, Day 6 of the 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge and another day of sweet Haikyuu goodness! Today I’m supposed to write about my favorite volleyball position! *cue jokes*

haikyuu challenge

I never really gave much thought to which position I fancied the most, they all have their merits and while some positions come with a bit more prestige than others, they all are important for a well balanced team. So, I really drew a blank with this prompt… I’m a pretty aggressive person so I rather like offensive positions, but, I’m not really big on team sports in general, so I tend to favor defensive positions whenever I have to participate in real life. I really feel like I just contradicted myself…. oh well, so about that response! Let’s see, my favorite volleyball position is…

Continue reading “30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 6: Favorite Volleyball Position”

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 5: Favorite Team

This post is gonna be short, because honestly, I’m kinda burned out today, this was the longest work day in the history of workdays… Today’s post is kind of a complement to the day 4 post I wrote earlier today, since, well, I won’t spoil it for you guys…

haikyuu challenge

Okay, so this is kind of an unfair question, I love all of the teams in Haikyuu. They are all special in their own ways and it’s not easy to pick just one as my favorite…. Okay, who am I kidding, of course I have a favorite team, hell, who doesn’t have a favorite team?! *ahem* So, my favorite team is…. Ka-

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 4: Favorite Non-Karasuno Character

I’m a day late and a dollar short, I had a busy weekend, what with the holiday and all, so I didn’t really get a chance to write much of anything… maybe I should have planned these posts out in advance…. nah.  But, that’s okay, we’re gonna keep this Haikyuu train rolling along anyway!

haikyuu challenge

So for the Day 4 prompt I’m supposed to write about my favorite non-Karasuno character… I guess the challenge creator knew that if left to their own devices most folks would just write about the characters from Karasuno and neglect everyone else. But, can you blame them? Karasuno has some fantastic characters! But, alas, I’ll have to ignore them for the time being, so, my favorite non-Karasuno character is….

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 3: The Character You Gradually Warmed Up To

Alright, it’s Day 3 of the 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge, so far, I’ve been able to keep up with these posts (but, it’s still early in the challenge). I read through the challenge prompts before I started and I realized that I’m going to be double dipping quite a bit, since at least one character in particular *cough* Tsukishima *cough* fits the bill for quite a few of the daily prompts (I’ll try to keep the posts he appears in to a minimum, but no promises).
haikyuu challenge

I say all of this because, when I first read this prompt my mind, as it often does, immediately turned to Karasuno’s salty middle blocker, who I absolutely hated at the start of the series… but, that seemed like a bit of a cop out since I already wrote about him on day 1, so I did a bit of soul searching and settled on a different character…. *drumroll*

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 2: The Character I First Fell in Love With

I’m late… but it’s technically still the 2nd in my neck of the woods, so it’s okay. It’s Day 2 of the 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge, and today’s prompt is the character I first fell in love with.

haikyuu challenge

To be honest, I had to think really hard about this one, and before you guys say anything about Tsukishima, remember I spent the better part of the series hating the guy, so he will not be my pick for today’s post. Instead, after much deliberation, I decided to go with….

Continue reading “30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 2: The Character I First Fell in Love With”

30 Day Haikyuu Challenge- Day 1: Favorite Characters

Alright, it’s September 1st and that means the start of the 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge!! As if I didn’t already inundate you guys on a daily basis with my love of Haruichi Furudate’s ongoing sports series. 30 days, 30 prompts, and just one crazy Haikyuu fangirl, it should be a blast! Hopefully I can keep this going for the full 30 days, but only time will tell….

haikyuu challenge

So, for Day 1, I’m supposed to write about my favorite character, which with a series like Haikyuu is no easy task, I love all of the characters. So, choosing just one as the best, is super duper hard… no, not really, if you know me or have even glanced at this blog or my twitter, you already know that my favorite character is…..

September 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge Announcement!!

Hey, hey Heroes and Travelers, this will be a quick post. Yesterday I made a very short, blink and you’d miss it announcement that I’d be undertaking the 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge during the month of September!! Why September? Well, not only is September my birthday month, but it’s also the birthday month of my absolute favorite Karasuno team member, Tsukishima Kei!! Also, if you didn’t already know, I’m a huge fan of Haikyuu, so this is really just an excuse for me to fangirl about the series for the umpteenth time!!

haikyuu challenge.jpg

So for 30 days (starting on September 1st) expect a whole lot of Haikyuu love coming your way! But, if you have to blame someone for this thirty day Haikyuu extravaganza, thank the lovely Mel from over at Mel in Animeland, since she is the person that brought this challenge to my attention!

What do you think about the announcement? Are you excited to see my responses to the prompts? Do you think I can finish it in the 30 days allotted by the challenge? Let me know what you think in the comments section. Somehow I feel like this is going to be a long month! As always, THANK YOU for reading!!!

 

GrimmGirl Is BACK With Her Top Three Moments of Season 3 of Haikyu

Hello Heroes and Travellers, today we have a special guest post from the lovely, Katrina Sade from over at GrimmGirl.com!! The Haikyuu Fangirl Duo is back with part two of our Haikyu Collaboration post series, so join me in welcoming GrimmGirl to Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!! So without further ado, I’m gonna turn things over to Kat!!


Muahahaha!!

I’m back! Pokeninja90 and I have decided to torture ourselves further by bringing you our Top Three Moments from Season Three of Haikyuu. As always this was a challenge! It has become a bit of a tradition for us to guest on each other’s blogs for this challenge. So below you can check out my previous work here on Nice Job Breaking It Hero. You can also see Pokeninja90’s collaboration work with me on GrimmGirl!

I hope you all enjoyed the stroll down memory lane and are ready for some serious Haikyu talk. I have to admit (I know I say this every season) but this was so hard to write! You would think with only 10 episodes this would be easier but no. It seemed like I was having a favorite moment every moment! I swear by the end of the first episode I had about 12 favorite moments.

I managed to narrow everything down to three and I’m pretty pleased with them. Each of these moments basically encompasses everything I loved about this season.

[OWLS Blog Tour] We’re All on the Same Team: Finding Sanctuary on the Volleyball Court

Hey hey all you Heroes and Travelers out there today I’m bringing you all another super special awesome OWLS post!! Back in December I mentioned that I’d joined OWLS: Otaku Warriors of Liberty and Self-Respect, a group of bloggers and vloggers that hope to spread a message of acceptance and understanding through thoughtful community activism!

So, in order to spread our message of self acceptance and tolerance, we’ve decided to hold Monthly Blog Tours! During Blog Tours, we each write individual theme posts on our blogs that promote our group’s values, with a bit of an otaku twist.  March’s Blog Tour topic is Sanctuary!

I Kinda Like That Salty Middle Blocker: 11 Reasons I ❤ Tsukishima Kei!

So kicking off March Megane Madness is none other than Tsukishima Kei from Haikyuu!! Now, it’s no secret that I am absolutely head over heels for this salty middle blocker, if you’ve been living under a rock, or if you doubt the depths of my obsession, I highly recommend you check out my Twitter and Tumblr accounts… They’re practically digital Tsukki shrines. *cough* So when I decided to do a month long tribute to megane men, I just knew that this bespectacled blonde would be the one to start things off!

Tsukishima1.png

After thinking long and hard about how best to showcase the light of my life, my beautiful moonbeam… sorry, I mean, rather than tarnish my beloved Tsukki’s good name with a half-assed character analysis, I decided to write up a list of all the reasons I ❤ Tsukishima Kei. But, because that list would probably go on forever, I decided to narrow the list down to just 11 items… because he’s Karasuno’s number 11…duh! Note, that this is just an excuse for me to fangirl about Tsukki, so expect a lot of exclamation marks and a few fangirl squeals!!!

Fangirl Moment: Kokoro Control

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! I went a little overboard reading Haikyuu DJs last week and this week, so I figured why not share my new obsession with you guys? Generally I’m not much of a shipper, but I will admit that I’m partial to the Eren x Levi pairing from Attack on Titan and the Kageyama x Hinata pairing from Haikyuu. But, I’ll save the angsty AoT stuff for another day… *ahem* I think KageHina is the cutest thing there ever was!! So, this week I’m gonna cover one of my favorite KageHina DJs…. *drumroll* Kokoro Control!!

While some folks credit doujinshi (DJs) as the medium that sparked their love of Boys Love/Yaoi, my journey was quite the opposite. I only discovered the wonderful world of DJs after I’d already fallen hopelessly into BL hell, so this is still relatively new territory for me. Ah, yeah, so for those of you that have no idea what a DJ is, or if you need a refresher, I’ve included the wiki definition below:

Dōjinshi is the Japanese term for self-published works, usually magazines, manga or novels. Dōjinshi are often the work of amateurs, though some professional artists participate as a way to publish material outside the regular industry.

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!

2016-12-12 (12).png

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!!

GrimmGirl Is BACK With Her Top Three Moments of Season 2 of Haikyu

Hello Heroes and Travellers, today we have a special guest post from the lovely, Katrina Sade from over at GrimmGirl.com!! The Haikyuu Fangirl Duo is back with part two of our Haikyu Collaboration post series, so join me in welcoming GrimmGirl to Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!! So without further ado, I’m gonna turn things over to Kat!!


Hey everyone!

It’s GrimmGirl here, back again to guest blog here at Nice Job Breaking It, Hero. Some time ago Pokeninja 90 and myself decided to be batshit crazy and come up with our top three moments of season 1 of Haikyu. If you have seen the show I know what you are thinking, “But how can you choose just three? It is logically impossible.”

Let me tell you, it was a struggle but both of us managed the impossible! That’s just how good we are cue wink. If you didn’t get a chance to see our top three moments of season 1 you are surely missing out so make sure to check them both out ❤

Pokeninja90’s Top Three Season One Haikyu Moments

GrimmGirl’s Top Three Season One Haikyu Moments

Obviously our success at being able to choose three moments from season one turned us into gluttons for punishments because we are back again with our Top Three Moments of season two. If I thought choosing for season one was hard, choosing for season two was emotional whiplash.

So after much deliberation and maybe just a few moments of ugly crying as I had to remove some moments off the list… I came up with this fine list of Haikyu moments that are sure to evoke some sense of emotion. Enjoy!

GrimmGirl Has Joined Your Party! Anime Collab: Top Moments of Haikyu- Season 1

Hello wonderful people of Pokeninja90’s blog!

 

I’m Kat from GrimmGirl and I’m really excited that I get to work with Pokeninja90 for this Haikyu collaboration series. I’m a huge Haikyu fan and it didn’t take me long to convince Pokeninja90 to start watching the series as well. I’m happy to say she loved it as well and thus our collaboration idea came about!

 

We decide to really challenge ourselves by coming up with our top three favorite moments during Haikyu. To make this task a little easier we broke it up into two posts. Top three moments for season one and top three moments for season two. Make sure to keep an eye out for our season two post coming soon!

I also would like to warn anyone who has yet to see the show that all of these moments will contain spoilers. If you are interested in reading a spoiler free post in order to see if this is a show you would like to try watching then please check out Pokeninja90’s reaction post Fangirl Moment: Haikyu!! or my season one review Haikyu!! You Are My New Obsession…

Everyone else please sit back and enjoy reading my Top Three Hiakyu Moments of Season One!

If you have been following my twitter, you know without a doubt that I have been seriously obsessing over the sports anime series Haikyu!!

I’m not really a fan of sports anime, in fact I usually go out of my way to avoid them when I can… So when Kat suggested that I watch Haikyu, let’s just say that I wasn’t expecting much. In fact, the first and last sports anime that I every cared enough about to keep up with was Prince of Tennis and that was years ago. But, along came Haikyu and it just blew everything else out of the water!
