Alternate Title

ハイキュー!! TO THE TOP(第4期)


The boys of the Karasuno High Volleyball Team have cemented their spot in the Spring Tournament after their success at the regionals, but with special training camps on the way things are about to heat up even more. When Tsukishima is selected for a special camp for the best first-year players but Hinata isn’t, he’ll do whatever he can to make them acknowledge him, even if he has to sneak into the camp to do it.


Haikyu!! began as a Japanese shonen manga written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate which was serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from February 2012 to July 2020. There has also been a radio drama, anime films (Haikyu!! the Movie: Endings and Beginnings, Haikyu!! the Movie: Winners and Losers, Haikyu!! Genius and Sense, Haikyu!! Battle of Concepts), a video game (Haikyu!! Tsunage! Itadaki no Keshiki), and a series of stage plays (Hyper Projection Engeki: Haikyu!!).

Haikyu!! To the Top is the fourth season of the Haikyu!! anime. It is once again being produced by Production I.G with Masako Sato as director, Taku Kishimoto as series composer, Takahiro Kishida as character designer, and Asami Tachibana and Yuki Hayashi composing the music. The first half of the season was broadcast from January to April 2020 with the second half being set to premiere in July, but this was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Episode 14 officially premiered in Japan on Oct. 2 on MBS, TBS, and BS-TBS as part of the "Animeism" programming block. It will run for 12 episodes.
