top five reasons why you ship kagehina??
This gonna be hella long so I apologize in advance. It seems that when it comest to Kagehina I can’t stop rambling…I just love them so fucking much
1. Because they are soulmates. Ask every single Haikyuu character about Kagehina, they would all say the same thing: they’re a match made in volleyball heaven. Their electricity, their sync, and their power is undeniable, so much that basically everyone inside and outside Karasuno openly recognize it. Oikawa even treats them as an actual couple. Or better, as Hinata himself said, partners. They are so different and yet so similar, they understand each other like no one else, they’re insanely passionate about volleyball, about improving themselves, about winning. They can canonically communicate telepathically (how extra is that), they are at the same time each other’s biggest rival and supporter. Kageyama is the partner Hinata always dreamed of, while Hinata is the sun that gave Kageyama the colors of the world back.
By the time they reach their 3rd year I have no doubt they’ll be the greatest power couple that the world has ever seen, even beating their royal predecessors Oikawa and Iwaizumi.
2. Because they are growing together. Even if the core of their relationship probably never changed, if you look back at the start of season 1, now they’re already two completely different people. But still, as deep as it already is, they’re just in the early stage of their relationship and they have plenty of room for further development, especially when it comes to communicate with each other. Kageyama was emotionally scarred, Hinata had nothing but his physical abilities to offer. They started from the very bottom, in what was the shortest “enemies to lovers” arc ever, and never stopped discovering and learning about each other since then. The growth as technical players is crystal clear, but what they changed the most about the other is the approach to life in general.
3. Because they naturally gravitate towards the other. The famous “As long as I’m here you’re invincible” sums the concept up really well. There’s a force that drives them to always be together, to always choose each other, a force they both don’t even understand. To his much displease, Hinata can even make Kageyama act a certain way on court just by influencing him with his aura. They are linked and committed to bring out the best of each other, of being the best setter/spiker for the other first, and just then for the team. They belong to each other and, together, they made a simple volleyball team feel like home.
4. Because you can’t keep them apart. Their fight was as devastating for us and for the team as it was for them. It’s a breaking point in their relationship. But still, in their painful time apart, every single action was directed towards the other. Kageyama even went to Oikawa asking for advices on how to deal with Hinata (let the enormity of that sink in). During the summer training camp they worked their asses off, always keeping the other in mind…remember that Kageyama could make the-toss-that-stops work only when he started imagining Hinata spiking the ball. Not to mention the geniuses training camp, the first time they were forced to be apart against their will…It’s their mutual constant support that can make them play at the top of their game, so not having the other beside them affected them both to the point that Kageyama was unable to watch another guy play without comparing him to Hinata and honestly? what the fuck
p.s. it’s stated in the manga that the whole team is affected when they’re not in good terms with each other. Kiyoko even said that she felt “a sense of peace and tranquillity” when they were finally reunited.
5. Because they act their age. Hinata and Kageyama are just 16, they are basically still kids. In a show where the characters are often requited to act way more mature than they are, it’s so refreshing to see them behave exactly like the young boys they are. Around Hinata, Kageyama breaks his collected form and lets out his hidden immaturity. We see them have fun together, go on their own little adventures, constantly and playfully bickering, they’re messy dorks together, they fail their tests together, they are loud, extra and completely childish together. They let each other shine bright in the perfect carefreeness of youth, and that’s beautiful.
Thank you for your message, if you need me, you could find me sobbing in the corner.
