Before I begin my word, let us have a brief moment of silence for an unfortunate news about Coach Ukai’s voice actor Kazunari Tanaka who passed away few days ago due to brain hemorrhage. Hopefully all his voice lines in this anime are pretty much recorded at this rate but still, a big thank you to his contribution in voice acting industry. RIP.
Depressing news aside, it is time, guys! The most anticipated match that I’ve been waiting for. The buildup to the final match in this episode was great, I like it. The team cheers (Shiratorizawa kinda roasted Karasuno with their cheers LMAO), the face expressions when both teams being introduced, every detail man, Haikyuu!! never cease to amaze me. The match is 10 episodes long and unlike previous matches which usually had 3-set matches, the finale will be a 5-set match, so 2 eps for each set based on my estimation. I guess 10 eps are long enough to cover this long ass match that tests their strength, endurance & mentality.
