04. Attacker You! (1984)
This Volleyball anime is the story of ambitious and energetic 13-year-old junior high schoolgirl You Hazuki (variously known as “Mila,” “Jeanne” or “Juana” in Western dubbed versions of the anime), who moves to Tokyo from Osaka to live with her father Toshihiko, a cameraman recently returned from Peru, and attend school.
You’s mother is not in the picture, having left when You was very young. Also living with You and her father is her younger brother Sunny, who is very attached to his older sister and tends to follow her everywhere she goes, including to school and to her volleyball matches.
You is passionate about volleyball and dreams of one day being a part of Japan’s national women’s volleyball team in the 1988 Seoul Olympics. She joins her school’s girls’ volleyball team and quickly becomes one of the top players, although her coach (who is also her homeroom teacher) is brutal and literally slaps his players around when they don’t live up to his expectations.
You begins a tumultuous friendship with former school volleyball champ and former arch-rival Nami Hayase (French name: “Peggy”), which comes to a head when the two girls join opposing professional teams.
She also develops a crush on So Takiki, the captain of the Hikawa boys’ volleyball team (known as “Shiro,” “Serge” or “Sergio” in various Western versions), and puts as much effort into trying to win his heart as she does into her game.

Although the two suffer a devastating defeat, Haruka finally realizes the reason for her cousin’s quiet and distant behavior. Kanata and Narumi used to be an exceptionally talented beach volleyball duo, until Kanata quit due to her short height causing problems for Narumi.

01. Haikyuu!! (2014)
Inspired after watching a Volleyball anime ace nicknamed “Little Giant” in action, small-statured Shouyou Hinata revives the volleyball club at his middle school.
The newly-formed team even makes it to a tournament; however, their first match turns out to be their last when they are brutally squashed by the “King of the Court,” Tobio Kageyama.
Hinata vows to surpass Kageyama, and so after graduating from middle school, he joins Karasuno High School’s volleyball team—only to find that his sworn rival, Kageyama, is now his teammate.
Thanks to his short height, Hinata struggles to find his role on the team, even with his superior jumping power. Surprisingly, Kageyama has his own problems that only Hinata can help with, and learning to work together appears to be the only way for the team to be successful.
Based on Haruichi Furudate’s popular shounen manga of the same name, Haikyuu!! is an exhilarating and emotional sports comedy following two determined athletes as they attempt to patch a heated rivalry in order to make their high school volleyball team the best in Japan.
