After 2 months or so, I finally finished the anime Haikyuu!!, which is an anime that had been on my list to watch for a while. Haikyuu!! had been recommended to me by a bunch of friends as a standout anime, and it did live up to the hype.
Haikyuu!! is an interesting concept, as it is an anime that revolves around volleyball. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, especially since the show spans 4 seasons of about 20 episodes each. Admittedly, the time span for Haikyuu!! is a bit ridiculous, as so far through four seasons it is still the same year as when the show first started (there is even a season that is dedicated to ONE volleyball match, and it spans ten episodes or so).
While I do think that there are a lot of extraneous scenes in Haikyuu!!, the show as a whole is always entertaining and pretty easy to get through. The main characters of the show, Kageyama Tobio and Hinata Shoyo, also are an iconic duo who function best when together. Although these two are easily the stars of the show, there are great supporting characters such as Nishinoya, Tanaka, Asahi, and Daiichi who also play pivotal roles in the show.
Haikyuu!! is a show that sports fans will appreciate more than non-sports fans, but I think the show is watchable even if you are a non-sports fan. I would say that Haikyuu!! is a notch below Hunter X Hunter and Attack on Titan, but on par with the first season of The Promised Neverland.
Haikyuu!! Recommendation Rating: 4.5
This post has now been updated to reflect a new ratings system that I have implemented, which is scored as follows:
1: Something worth checking out if you have time
2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone
3: Something worth prioritizing if interested
4: Something worth making time to check out
5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
