VIZ Announces Kaikyu!! and Kuroko’s Basketball
VIZ Media has announced to new manga English releases. Haikyu!! will see release on July 5th and Kuroko’s Basketball sees its first volume on shelves August 2nd.
Created by Haruichi Furudate, Haikyu!! depicts the on- and off-the-court drama of a driven young volleyball player. Ever since he saw the legendary player known as “the Little Giant” compete at the national volleyball finals, Shoyo Hinata has been aiming to be the best volleyball player ever! Who says you need to be tall to play volleyball when you can jump higher than anyone else?
In the opening volume, after losing his first and last volleyball match of his middle school career against Tobio Kageyama, “the King of the Court,” Shoyo Hinata swears to become his rival. But what happens when the guy he wants to defeat ends up being his teammate?!
In 2015 the manga won the Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shonen category.
Created by Tadatoshi Fujimaki Kuroko’s Basketball has become a global sensation. In Kuroko’s Basketball, when incoming first-year student Taiga Kagami joins the Seirin High basketball team, he meets Tetsuya Kuroko, a mysterious boy who’s plain beyond words. But Kagami’s in for the shock of his life when he learns that the practically invisible Kuroko was once a member of “The Miracle Generation” – the undefeated, legendary team – and he wants Kagami’s help taking down each of his old teammates!
