Peppermint Anime is bringing out the first part of the first season of Haikyu!! for German fans on August 25th and they now have a new promotional spot for it. This is our first listen to the show in German and it’s one that definitely works in a lot of ways. The release has separate DVD and Blu-ray editions that land on August 25th, 2017 in bilingual form priced at 36 and 38 euro respectively with six episodes on it.
Plot Concept: Shoyo Hinata isn’t a large guy, but he’s got huge ambitions. Ever since seeing a small player score in a National Championship, he’s been determined to become the next big thing in High School Volleyball. Unfortunately, the one time he was able to pull enough players together to form a team in junior high, they were completely trashed in their first and only match against a team led by up-and-coming setter Tobio Kageyama.
Now, enrolled at the same high school where his idol once played, Shoyo’s finally going to get his shot to join and play with a top team. There’s just one problem: Tobio Kageyama’s decided to attend the same school, and he’s already considered one of the best players in the game. Can a kid out of nowhere hold his own against the King of the Court? Or could the rivalry and competition actually be the best thing for both of them?
