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!
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!!

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.
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…

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

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.
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…

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…
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….

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!
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!!

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.

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)!
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….

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….
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!

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.
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…
