Other than Karasuno, my other favorite teams are Seijou and Nekoma – for obvious reasons. 8D
So imagine my delight when I found out that the OVA focuses on Nekoma. If Karasuno have genius 1st years like Kageyama and Hinata, Nekoma has a new member too by the name of Haiba Lev. He is half-Japanese, half-Russian and have only started playing volleyball in high school. Like Hinata, Lev aspires to be the ace despite his apparent lack of basic volleyball skills. Another character to join the ranks of dorks in this series. (๑´ლ`๑)
Lev follows his own pace… which doesn’t usually match up with the team especially Kenma. In order for them to coordinate well, their coach assigns these two to work together so that Lev can play in their next practice match. Kenma’s reaction though:
( ﾟ∀ﾟ)ｱﾊﾊ八八ﾉヽﾉヽﾉヽﾉ ＼ / ＼/ ＼
Hang in there Kenma!
Meanwhile, back in Miyagi, our Karasuno boys are still being dorks, playing and fighting over an RPG game in Tanaka’s POP. It is the same game the Kenma plays and has trouble defeating the boss.
The events in this OVA happens before the summer camp but after season 1. It is best to watch it before watching season 2 or at least before episode 4 of s2.
