What is Haikyuu!! The Dumpster Battle about anyway?

The movie features the battle between the Karasuno Volleyball Team and the Nekoma Volleyball Team. Fans and the characters of the anime themselves have been anticipating this match for quite a long time now. The match between the teams was dubbed the “dumpster battle” because of the names of the schools: crows for Karasuno and cats for Nekoma.

The long-awaited match between both teams will determine whether the Kasaruno Volleyball Team has gained enough experience to defeat one of their greatest rivals. This battle will decide if the journey that Shoyo Hinata and the rest of the Karasuno Volleyball Team was all for nothing in the face of the Nekoma’s strength.

Haikyuu!! The Dumpster Battle is an anime film that people who have not even held a volleyball can relate to and be entertained with. The movie promises a more heart-pounding and dramatic play inside the court.

With Nekoma and Karasuno both consisting of talented, driven, and likable players, which side will you pick?
