Haikyuu!! Season 4 Episode 4 Spoilers: What to Expect?

You simply cannot underestimate Hinata. He still has a long way to go and most other players out there are far more skilled than him, but even as a ball boy, Hinata has this hunger to get better. In the third episode, instead of just being a ball boy, he observes all the professional volleyball players around him.  He studies everything from their hand movements to their footwork in the game and even manages further improve his reflexes. For most other players, the basic volleyball moves are more of an instinct. But for now, Hinata has to willingly make decisions in the court and consciously predict the moves of the other players to come in sync with them. With practice, he, too, can achieve what the other players already have.

Even back at Karasuno High, the boys are getting warmed up for their practice games with Tokonami High but before they can actually face such strong opponents, there are a lot of things they need to work on. In the third episode, they mostly work on their serves and realize that almost none of them are good at jump serves. In the meantime, Kageyama is still at the National Youth Camp and is just trying to level up his game to match the standards of the players around him.

In the upcoming episode, Hinata will continue observing other players and might even get the opportunity to play with them. There is a lot on his mind right now but he can obviously not improve his game simply by observing. So he’ll certainly have to get on the court to actually experiment and adopt everything that he has been visually absorbing. Initially, he was almost invisible to everyone at the camp, however, now he’s starting to get under everyone’s radar. With time, even the head coach at the camp will notice him and might even give him an opportunity to play. The head coach only prefers tall players but it is a possibility that it’ll Hinata who’ll make him change his mind.

Karasuno High will soon be facing Tokonami High. As of now, Tokonami High seems to be the stronger team so they’ll have a better chance at winning these matches. However, since almost all the players of the Karasuno High are working really hard to further hone their skills, they’ll surely give their opponents some tough competition.

The next few episodes will be no different from the third one. All of them will unfold three parallel narratives where the journeys of the Karasuno High team, Hinata and Kageyama will be highlighted. Midway through the season, we can expect all three of these narratives to align and when that’ll happen, the Karasuno High team will be unstoppable. As the title suggests, the entire team will be making its way “to the top” and as for Hinata, he’ll show what he’s truly capable.
