ハイキュー・Haikyuu! 🏐 Vol. 8

Volleyball-trivia corner: in regards to Ch.55, p.32/33 (when Shimada’s talking about the serve and making points)

Summary

About 20 years ago being able to serve well was even more important than today because the rules for serves and making points were a bit different.

Today you already get a point when you take the serve from the opposing team. Back then you could only score when it was your turn to serve. Therefore you needed consecutive serves by one player to even get any points. (Unfortunately my team was really bad at that; we could take the ball from our opponents but we couldn’t score because we would somehow miss with the second serve or otherwise loose the ball again.)

Also the toss was not allowed to touch the net at all; so no (accidental) “roll-overs” that could just drop right behind the net. It also did matter where you stood behind the base-line: there was a marked area on the right side of the court from which you could do your serve. (Basically the rule for the proper positioning of players before the serve was extented beyond the actual court to the server as well.) Although you were allowed to let the ball drop from the serve-toss when you tossed bad, as long as you didn’t catch it and didn’t go over the 8 sec time allowance for tosses.

As is was quite hard to score, sets only went up to 15 winning points instead of today’s 25. They changed that with the rule change for scoring as the game would have otherwise been over too soon if they kept it at 15. The “drop-of-a-bad-toss” is no longer allowed but the ball is allowed to touch the net. Also you are now no longer restricted to that small area for the toss but can use the whole width of the court.

Another rule that got relaxed a bit, is how you are allowed to touch the ball. Before you really were only allowed to touch the ball with your hands or arms, nothing else; no chest, head or foot. Today it’s basically ok to touch the ball with any body part other than the hand as well, as long as you don’t add momentum to it’s movement. So no kicking or header (like in football/soccer).
It’s probably a good thing that changed, as otherwise we wouldn’t be able to enjoy Nishinoya’s awesome safe at the end of Ch.46 against Datekou. :wink:

Woo! Thank you for the background, Juice! Fascinating to think how different volleyball was not that long ago.

Chapter 57 sign-ups sheet is live. Fewer speakers this chapter. Sugawara and Kagayama, and then Takinoue providing the color commentary.

Chapter 58 list is up. Lot of minor speaking parts. Pour one out for Takinoue who doesn’t have any lines and thus doesn’t appear on the list with his boyfriend Shimada this week.

Thanks @potatonaught ! Looks like another action-packed chapter :muscle: Woohoo!

Btw, 皆さん, in case if you’re interested, some of us are starting a short book club for Jujutsu Kaisen 0 (the prequel). The movie will be out mid-March and Season 2 in 2023, so very curious to learn about the history a bit:. So if you’re interested, the thread is here.

See you this weekend for Ch 58!

I noticed a funny coincidence while listening to episode 20, near the start of the current Seijoh-Karasuno match, compared to the chapter we just read.

In Chapter 59, Matsukawa (Seijoh #2) and Hanamaki (#3) are making fun of Oikawa by saying he’s always looking at weaknesses, so they wouldn’t want to be friends with him. Oikawa asks why would he try to exploit his teammates’ weaknesses.

EXCEPT in episode 20 of the anime, Oikawa speaks for Kindaichi that he must be so upset that Kageyama is getting along better with Hinata than he did with Kindaichi in middle school. Now, maybe Oikawa planted the inferior complex in Kindaichi, or maybe it he noticed the weakness and decided to use it to his advantage.

In any case, I thought it was a funny coincidence :laughing:

Chapter 60 sign-up list is up.

In contrast to last week’s smorgasbord, this week is concentrated around a small number of speakers. Get ready to put on your best middle school angst voice.

I won’t be there this week either :’(, I’m at a birthday party. :slight_smile:
Have lots of fun with all the action!

Btw: the way Hinata is landing on just one foot on p. 74 is really bad for the knees. :confounded:

uah~ I’m currently reading through the chapter and I had an epiphany:

Oikawa’s missing his serve on p.82-84. It’s because he thought ahead to the next game of wanting to beat Shiratorizawa (p.81/82), contrary to what Ukai and Iwaizumi said sometime before: to focus on the current game, 'cause you can’t concentrate on and beat the opponent right now if you’re already thinking ahead to the next one.

But later than never, it’s your Chapter 67 sign-up list!

When we had 5 pages in a row of just action, no dialog, I thought “oh maybe we should read a second chapter” but then people started talking in the second half lol.
