What could be the plot for Haikyuu!! Season 5?
Haikyuu!! is the story of a high school volleyball team and the relationship between the players. The story mainly focuses on Shōyō Hinata, a boy determined to become a great volleyball player despite his short height. It also describes the friendship and rivalries of the characters.
Haikyuu!! Season 5 could come with a new story that will not be connected to Season 4 or the earlier seasons. IBT noted that the match between Karasuno High and Nekoma High is likely to be the focus of the new season. It is also reported that there is enough source material for one more season. So probably there could be a season 6 as well.
Some of the media outlets predict, Haikyuu!! Season 5 will continue from the end of the fourth season. It would show how Hinata goes to Karasuno High School to learn Volleyball and even qualifies for nationals.
Season 4 ended by showing Hinata looking distressed and out of control after missing the opportunity to score a point early in the match. Tobio Kageyama warns him that if Hinata missed the chance again during a match, next time he will never set the ball for him.
Who could be the cast of Haikyuu!! Season 5?
If the story continues from the end of the fourth season, then the voice cast might return including Ryusei Nakao (as Tanji Washijo), Nobuyuri Sagara (Hisashi Kinoshita), Hiroshi Kamiya (Ittetsu Takeda), Yu Miyazaki (Sachiro Hirugmai), Jun Nazuka (Aran Ojiro), Hideaki Kabumoto (Osamu Miya), Yoshimasa Hosoya (Asahi Azumane), Ayumu Murase (Shoyo Hinata), Nobuhiko Okamoto (Yu Nishinoya), Mamuro Miyano (Atsumu Miya), Kaito Ishikawa (Tobio Kageyama), and Yuu Hayashi (Ryunoksuke Tanaka).
