The first episode of the fourth season has been released on January 10. Haikyuu!! To The Top will tell the story of Karasuno High School Volleyball Club as they take part in the National Tournament after emerging victorious against Shiratorizawa Academy.
Kageyama will receive an invitation from the All-Japan Youth Training Camp before the tournament, as Tsukishima goes to Miyagi Prefecture First Year Selection Training Camp. Hinata makes an appearance at the Miyagi Prefecture First Years’ Training Camp as he is flustered with the difference between the 1st years.
Haikyuu!! To The Top has already premiered in Japan, but there is no officially confirmed date for an English language release as of now. This season is also being produced by Production I.G.
Haikyu!! was created by Haruichi Furudate for Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2012. The slice-of-life sports story revolves around Shoyo Hinata, who loves volleyball. Hinata creates a volleyball team in his middle school after getting inspired by a short professional volleyball player. They lose their very first tournament as they get a match against Tobio Kageyama’s team. Hinata vows to defeat Kageyama and so joins the volleyball team after entering high school. To his surprise, he finds that Kageyama has also joined the same team.
