Saori(゜ ) “Haikyuu!!”




【Coupling Column】Vol.5 Ver. Haikyuu!!




●Oikawa Toru x Iwaizumi Hajime




The relationship of the two: Childhood friends, most dependable partners ever!







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “They are the Captain and the Sub-Captain of the volleyball club at Aoba Jyousai High School, whose basketball team is powerful, which is also a competitive school of Karasuno High School, where the main characters belong to.”


Saori(゜∇ ゜) “One thing that I’m going to share today is that they’re【childhood friends】! They’ve been friends since they were elementary school students even before they met in the volleyball club’s team.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “If you want to know more about them, watch Episode 22! Then-junior high school student, Oikawa-San, realized how fun playing volleyball was and started thinking that he wanted to be able to play it much better, when a【genius】showed up.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “What’s the definition of the【genius】? It’s someone who we can never beat even if we make a lot of efforts practicing. Oikawa-San, who used to be cheerful, started feeling depressed, not being able to win over Ushijima Wakatoshi-Kun…”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “What’s worse… there showed up another【genius】from one of his junior members.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “He sees rivals not only in the competitive school but also in his team…, which made him suffer from mental issue, and he ended up causing lack of communicating between the players.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “While he tried to focus more on practicing himself, he could never improve himself… when a junior high school student, Kageyama-Kun, came to him and said,”


 “Oikawa-San, will you teach me how to serve?”









Saori(゜∇ ゜) “That was when he felt a little intimidating toward the player, who was junior to him, and really longed for him. Then he tried to hit Kageyama-Kun, throwing him off from him. Iwaizumi-Kun was the one who tried to stop what was happening there…!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “While Oikawa-San shouted that he cannot beat the【genius】, Iwaizumi-Kun admonished him, ‘Just because there is a【genius】doesn’t mean we can win. There’s no way you, all by yourself, can win! We win because each six player is strong as a team.’”








Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Oikawa-San, who was pushed past his breaking point, has actually changed. He came to think that he should always trust his teammates instead of just trying to win all by himself…! Even though he became a little mean, he is now a cheerful boy, always smiling on his face!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Oikawa-San is not the genius type of boy, for sure, but he never fails to make efforts. And then Iwaizumi-Kun, who is a sub captain, supports him both mentally and physically. This is the best combination which nobody can get in!”




●Kageyama Tobio x Hinata Shoyo




The relationship of the two: A “Totally opposite” partner




Saori(゜∇ ゜) “We can say these two are the main characters of Haikyuu!!! The story basically develops through how they grow, so you will see them very often in the story! But guess what? They used to be the rivals, not the teammates when they first met~!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “While everybody already knew that Kageyama-Kun is【genius】, while Hinata-Kun covers his weak point of being short by his surprisingly high physical strength. They are both super passionate when it comes to playing volleyball but their personalities and strategies toward winning are【totally opposite】. After all, Kageyama-Kun’s team won, which was not able to work perfectly together as a team but was able to cover it with their high technique, while Hinata-Kun’s team lost, having only one player with such a high physical strength.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Hinata-Kun declared to Kageyama-Kun that he will be a winner for the next game. And Kageyama-Kun accepted his challenge. He won as a team but he surely admitted his determination toward winning as well as Hinata-Kun’s physical strength…!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “They swore for another competition as a combination in the same team and the story goes on… Yes, this is the Haikyuu!! And this is how the story goes!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “As Hinata-Kun said in Anime that he feels like he had a partner, not a friend with Kageyama-Kun, their relationship has become better and better even though they used to be the rivals before. The more they feel each other’s growth or talent, the more they found out what’s【lacking】in themselves… They do have a quarrel from time to time but it happens because they strongly admit each other! They’re the partners but the rivals at the same time. They’re the best combination, where they can improve each other, also being competitive!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “They were not perfect at the beginning… They can encourage with each other because they are totally opposite to each other… That’s one of their charms, I guess!”







●Bokuto Koutarou x Akaashi Keiji




The relationship of the two: Absurd Senpai and super cold teammate, junior to him




Saori(゜∇ ゜) “You’ll see what the relationship of these two is like if you see this discourse.”







 “Did you see it, Akaashi? Hey, did you see my super inner spike!? It was just pure luck, though!!!!!!!!!”


 “Yes, I did see it. That’s incredible, huh?”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Super active Bokuto-San and super calm Akaashi-Kun. What’ special in their relationship is that they’re【Senpai and his junior】, huh?”


Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Bokuto-San is super cheerful with such a positive personality! Even when they had a training camp with other school’s team, he gives a complement to the player if he plays well, regardless of their friendship! If they don’t play well, then he gives them advice! What’s more? He even gives them secrets of being able to play better… Yes, he never expects anything in return!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Sometimes, giving such secrets can make him suffer a loss himself but… since he is such a good Senpai, who can play very well, everybody, no matter if they’re the teammates or not, is always be encouraged to be able to play better by him!”








Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Akaashi-Kun plays a good role of stopping Bokuto-San, who always acts before he thinks! He is smart enough to think and analyze what happens and how he should deal with it, managing such Bokuto-San, who is their team leader!”









Saori(゜∇ ゜) “These two are the only couple whose relationship is Senpai and his junior so their sense of distance is just exquisite…! For instance, if one never wants to spike, refusing to accept all the sets, the other advices him that he should control himself, while he never gives him a set.”








Saori(゜∇ ゜) “I really like such a combination~! Both of them understand well each other, which makes them respect with each other too!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “And other teammates are used to getting involved in such Bokuto-San’s emotional state. The whole team supports Bokuto-San, while Bokuto-San leads the team even stronger! This Akaashi-Kun’s calmness and Bokuto-San’s positive attitude are literally a secret of the strength of their team!”









Saori(゜∇ ゜) “How did you the Couplings we shared today? They are all in the same team but their relationships differ, which leads them to be stronger… Such wonderful relationships, huh? Since Haikyuu!’s Anime and original story still continue to come out so don’t miss them out!”


Already now! We’ll see you at the next update! Bye~!
