Haikyu!! : Collection 2 (2015/Sentai Blu-ray)

Picture: A+ Sound: B+ Extras: B Episodes: A

After the crushing defeat by Nekoma High, Karasuno High Volleyball team vows to improve and enter the inter-high school championships. Hinata and Tobio are the two rising freshman star of Karasuno, a genius setter and spiker, but Tobio faces his own challenge, while he is nick named the Lonely King of the court, he must learn to rely on others and trust them. In order to advance they must beat the Iron Wall of Date High, and Tobio faces his long time rival Oikawa of Aoba-Johsai High in Haikyu!! : Collection 2 (2015).

Hinata is the fireball spiker of Karasuno High with his superhuman spikes, but only when teamed up with Tobio, the only setter who can keep up with Hinata's super jumps and speed. After Karasuno gets a full team roster and new strong players they now must learn how to play together. Because there is no "I" in team, that even Ace or a King of the Court can't win a game on his own.

This again is your typical sports anime, where hearts are on the line and the sweat of youth is rolling off your back. As usual, it a group of underdogs who look to go to the National Championship. It takes longer watching the series than watching a REAL game because of all the slow motion scenes, monologues and flashbacks of the players. Extras include clean opening and closing animations and trailers, while playback performance is on par with the debut season I reviewed at this link...
