Whenever people hear Shonen anime or manga, they think of powerful protagonists like Son Goku, Monkey D. Luffy, or Naruto, with superhuman powers and how they saved the world. But Haikyuu changed that notion. In the 1990s, Slam Dunk became one of the very first sports manga to reach massive popularity among its peers. Haikyuu carried and refined the love for sports manga since mid-2010.
