Will hopefully find the time to go back through in more detail and pick out things I didnt get or fave bits but for now, that was another nice read!

Done!! Phew.

My favorite part was when Kageyama was like スパイカーの前の壁を切り開く。。。その為のセッターだ
I don’t really know why, I just liked it

Bonus: Suga’s reaction suga

Lots of great facial expressions again, especially from Hinata :smile:

Didn’t you say you’ve seen the anime? Doesn’t that mean you already know what happens :joy:

p. 184 second panel in the middle Kageyama’s saying お前反応早いんだからもっとこうバッ!っと来いよグワッ!っつ! I get the first part as Your reaction is fast, so more… but I have trouble with the rest. Is it some kind of sound effects like Hinata’s always making?

2 Likes

Yeah, pretty sure that’s it.

Your reaction is fast, so come in more like バッ, グワッ!

Whatever that means exactly :joy:
That one sfx sound library website has a bunch of entries for バッ, for example
(7) Sudden motion;
(8) Sudden appearance, like in a fight
- I think that more or less makes sense here. Not sure what グワッ is except for screaming, but I’m assuming also something speed related or something similar?

(もっとこう is short for もっとこういった → more like this)

Late once again, but I finally managed to finish up the first volume. There’s a ton of vocabulary I still don’t understand, but the more I read in Japanese the fewer times I’m going to have to look up words (I hope!). I think I’m going to try to continue with Haikyuu on my own -probably at the slowest pace ever-, so count me in if there’s ever a book club for the second volume! I love these dumb boys :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Thank you all for the help! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
