Haikyu!! (ハイキュー!!, Haikyū!!, from the kanji 排球 lit. "volleyball") is a Japanese shōnen manga series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate.
Junior high school student—Shōyō Hinata—gains a sudden love of volleyball after seeing a game on television. Although short in height, he becomes determined to be like his favourite player, nicknamed the "Little Giant", after seeing his plays. However, his dreams are destroyed in his first official match, where his team suffers a crushing defeat against the junior championship favourite team, which includes the so-called "King of the Court" Tobio Kageyama. Hinata vows to follow in the footsteps of the "Little Giant" and enter Karasuno High School to defeat Kageyama, only for the two to wind up as unlikely teammates. By combining the genius-like qualities of Kageyama with Hinata's sheer athleticism, the duo create a brand-new volleyball tactic. Their new combo allows them to get over their differences, and a strange alliance is created between the two. They are constantly filled with fun and laughter, which rubs off on their teammates. Thus begins the Karasuno boys' volleyball team's journey to the nationals.
Toru Oikawa (及川 徹, Oikawa Tōru)
Oikawa is the setter and third-year captain of the Aoba Johsai High School volleyball club and is widely regarded as the ace setter, introduced as a main antagonist in manga and anime Haikyu!!. He was also Kageyama's senior when they both attended Kitagawa Daiichi Middle School. He is called "The Great King" by Hinata. Despite his flirtatious nature and childishness, Oikawa is an excellent, well-rounded player and is extremely serious about volleyball. He's known to have a "disgusting personality" amongst both opponents and his own teammates because of his smug attitude. Oikawa also frequently makes cheerful remarks, but follows them up with serious or intimidating afterthoughts. Despite his flirtatious and blasé exterior, Oikawa is extremely intelligent and cunning, to the point of his own teammates stating they wouldn't want to be friends with him because he figures out everyone's weaknesses. tooru tohru aobajosai
