But is the popular shonen anime available to stream on Netflix? Let’s find out. Haikyu!! is a Japanese anime series based on the shonen manga of the same name by Haruichi Furudate.

He forms a team, and for the first game, the team lines up against star player Tobio Kageyama.
However, if Netflix doesn’t renew Haikyu!! at the last minute, there are some options to continue watching the series. All four seasons are available for streaming on Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll only has the Japanese Dub with English subtitles available. In the United States, fans can watch on VRV with English subtitles.
