Haikyuu!! Season 4 Episode 8 Spoilers: What to Expect?

Ever since Kageyama has returned from his camp, he has been on the edge and seems to have this desperation to win. It’s understandable where all this coming from. Anyone would’ve felt just like him after playing with Japan’s best players. However, instead of benefiting him, this is actually ruining his overall game. Instead of acting like a leader for the team and instead of yelling at his teammates and motivating them, he has become silent. Everyone in the team notices this and Tsukishima even confronts him for acting this way.

Hinata tries to uplift his mood by reminding him how far he has come from where he used to be and even Coach Ukai takes this as an opportunity to remind the boys the importance of communication. Hinata takes one of his towels and folds it to make a crown out of it. He then smashes it on Kageyama’s head and declares him the King of the court. That’s when a mild smirk appears on his face, indicating that he’s back in his old form. With this, Kageyama realizes that his teammates really need his leadership. Throughout the rest of the episode, Kageyama tests all kinds of tosses just to get past the “impregnable wall of Date Live.”

The boys of Kurasuno High haven’t yet found a way to get the ball past Date Live’s strong defense, but they’re clearly getting there. In the 7th episode, Hinata also proves that he, too, has become very observant about his opponents’ game. So eventually, maybe he’ll be able to find a way to find a flaw in Date Live’s almost perfect defense. Near the closing scene of the episode, it is also mentioned that Date Live creates the perfect offense-defense game because of their strong serves and perfect wall-defense. But they only have one good server in their team. So it is a possibility that the only way to get past their defense is to find a way to beat their impeccable serves. For now, we’ll just have to wait for another week to find out how Kageyama will find a way to break their “wall.”
