It’s my Haikyuuversarrryyyy
Yes, three years ago today, I started reading the manga. I’d seen some things floating around, mainly because I followed @viria (for Nico D’ Angelo art, mainly) and she was talking about it a lot. I was coming out of the HP fandom, finishing off some original fic, and really needed a break. I actually tried the anime first, but due to my headphones being shit, I gave up after five minutes and searched for the manga instead.
I was hooked pretty much as soon as I saw Hinata’s face when he scored that first point against Kitigawa Daiichi. And obviously, I disliked Kageyama for being an utter meanie pants. This started a long sequence where I’ve disliked someone on sight, only to have my mind changed. (Tsukishima, Yamaguchi, Oikawa, Kuroo – jury’s still out on Washijou, though.)
And then this guy waltzed into the gym and I was smitten as a kitten.
