Victory comes at a cost, and sometimes that means making sacrifices, and compromises, and working your ass off for years before breaking through, before “making it”.
The Sendai Frogs are sending a message to the National Team and other Division 1 players: “We’re here too, and we’re coming for you.”
One of my favorite things in Haikyuu!!, especially since the Nationals arc, has been the portions told from Akaashi Keiji’s point-of-view. Sure, Hinata Shouyou is the main character and protagonist of Haikyuu!! but Fukurodani and Bokuto Koutarou are ‘the protagonists of the world’.
