Shōyō Hinata began playing volleyball after seeing the “small giants”
who played the sport when he was in elementary school. He suffers a
crushing defeat in his first and last tournament in middle school at the
hands of his rival Tobio Kageyama. So, Hinata joins Kurasuno High
School’s volleyball team, vowing revenge against Kageyama. However,
Kageyama is also on Kurasuno’s team. The former rivals form a legendary
combo with Hinata’s mobility and Kageyama’s precision ball-handling.
Together, they take on the local tournaments and vow to meet Kurasuno’s
fated rival school in the nationals
The Parallel Julieverse is back from its annual “jolly holiday” and what better way to kickstart the year than a tribute to Julie and her best-ever bestie…and one, moreover, that is inspired by recent real-world events.
“Carol has been such a huge part of all our lives for the past fifty years. From her Broadway debut in Once Upon a Mattress in 1959 to eleven glorious seasons of her own smash hit variety show to her unforgettable film roles in movies like The Front Page and Annie – right up until this year’s unauthorized biopic Carol, about her longtime friendship with Julie Andrews.” “Errr nope,” Poehler interjected with faux concern, “No, Tina, that’s not what that movie was about.” "Watch it again,” Fey retorted.
It was a joke that arguably got the biggest laugh of the night from the star-studded audience and that, interestingly, plays on the long history of lesbian subtext surrounding Julie and Carol’s friendship touched on in a previous post.
It’s also an irresistible spur to the kind of tongue-in-cheek revisionism that’s the Parallel Julieverse’s stock-in-trade. So, sorry, Cate and Rooney, we love you but this is how Carol ought to have looked… ;)
