When I pick a book up, I am travelling to a distant place and some times I become one of the characters in a book. My love for stories are the ones that begin and end where fiction is more honest than reality.

When Volleyball Hits Manga

Haikyu!!, Vol. 1 - Haruichi Furudate

When it comes to manga, there is always a focal point in their series. Be it tennis, football, food, magic, love - there is always some thing that manga creators able to bring out the best in subject.


Haikyu!! (of Volleyball) is another series debut in 2012 in Japan and recently released this year for the English version readers. I have to say - there is so much to read and lots of dialogue involve. It can be tedious when it comes to reading it but towards the end, I was entertained by its message of pure simple philosophy of playing volleyball. Nevertheless, I need to adjust to enjoy the art itself, not that I am complaining but it does feel a lot to appreciate some of it. Haruichi Furudate had a good start with the first volume and I am looking forward to get the second and third onwards.


Like most manga, if you love focal subject or volleyball, you might want to give this a try.
