As I pulled up the season final for Haikyuu! season 2, I stumbled across an announcement thing in the most recent anime uploads for the anime site I was using which instantly caught my eye because it was the last (13th) episode of God Eater!!
Now, God Eater was an anime from the Summer of 2015 that was based off the game God Eater Burst I think and the first anime I decided to watch based off a video game. And I totally looooved it. However, there were issues releasing the episodes on time, and after many delays, the 8th episode was the last one for quite the while because they postponed the series until the Winter season that year. Or so they said.
It was then completely unheard of until just now, for me at least, and now I see on this site that they’ve been uploading the last few episodes in the last few weeks of March 2016 and the last episode came out yesterday. Well, I’ll probably watch that this weekend or something, but now, back to Haikyuu!
OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOOOOSHHHH
So much hype and build up! And there wasn’t even a proper match in this ep! They wrapped up Seijoh’s loss super well and I felt kinda bad for Kindaichi, but then his teammate told Kageyama how they wouldn’t lose next time and it was the start of a super serious rivalry once more. On both sides ❤
Then there was Oikawa. You know how I hate Stupid Royal Ass most of the times during matches against Karasuna even though most of the times I like him but I just get annoyed when he’s against them? Well, this is the one time I was suuuuper loving and happy with him! When? When he told the even holier than Oikawa (this statement is equivalent to saying with a bigger ego than Seto Kaiba. Yuh-huh, I went there.) Japan from Shiratorizawa (you know, strong-jawed, “concrete can’t bear fruit” guy.) how he better not have all his attention focused on him, because otherwise he might get stabbed where he least expects it. By Oikawa’s “kawaii kohai” Tobio (ew, that’s so weird to even type). Oikawa even had a special edition of Hinata’s rape face going on and it was one of the best things ever in this episode. Creepier than even Hinata when he makes that face, yes, but epic nonetheless.
Then there was the actual build up towards the finals. The school congrats, even the little tv announcement, it was all adorable ❤ (Hah, stupid newscasters! You can’t focus on bloody Oikawa and his preferences for girls and chocolate now can you since he LOST!! Muahahaha!)
I also loved Hinata’s little speech of “It doesn’t matter” because they’ll win anyways after Ukai-sensei tried to prepare them the night before the match. It was worth it. I honestly died a little with the end credit scene as well because it reminded me so much of Japan in the one episode where Hinata and Kageyama scouted the competition with Shiratorizawa. That’s why when Hinata and Kageyama stepped up- Japan recognized them, of course (one does not simply forget when Hinata jumps two feet above your head and steals your volleyball. Promptly afterwards which he threatens you with his rape face of terror.); called them out by name, and the entire Karasuna team was like what the eff is happening?! – and said how he was going to prove that talent can grow from concrete and how he’s going to show him by defeating him.
(Japan also said the line “Let’s meet on the court” and I couldn’t help but think “pfft, not unless you go to the bathroom first and see Hinata a mess of nerves and lose all the current respect you have for him.”)
I had to resist so much to not put a thousand spoilers onto my snapchat story of the show because I do know at least one of my friends on it is behind BY CHOICE, the fool. Ugh, that moment Kageyama and Hinata read the sheet that announced tomorrow’s match- “The Japanese National High School Volleyball Tournament Miyagi Prefecture Qualifiers (Boys) Finals Shiratorizawa vs. Karasuna” I diiiieeeeed with squeals and eeeeps of excitement as I usually do.
Time for this flock of crows to tear apart an eagle as Oikawa said very fittingly~
UGH so much perfect build up but now we have to wait until Autumn 2016 for season 3!! Aaaaaaaah come soon ❤ ❤ ❤
