So the story behind this panel of gremlin kenma is that:

  • He (the one-and-only Kozume Kenma)  “wakes up” at 2am to play games
  • He’s still awake at 5am
  • Kuroo notices that Kenma’s room light is on at 5am often when he goes on morning runs and passes the Kozume residence, assumes Kenma is pulling all nighters
  • Kenma tells Kuroo that his parents will bin his games if he pulls all nighters and never sleeps, so he “wakes up early” to play games, that way his parents have no valid argument.
  • Kenma’s grades never dropped a single point throughout this whole gremlin phase. 

Considering how much I adore Kenma, and how Nagata Takato as Kenma in the stageplay is literal, adorable perfection… drawing him was SO overdue. 

(Also please wake me up when it’s March and the Summer of Evolution DVD is here to bless us all k thanks.)

HQ Stage series: Bokuto | Akaashi | Kuroo | Hinata | Nishinoya

Nekoma’s intermission performance during Hyper Projection Engeki Haikyuu!! Winners and Losers with English subs!

Thank you to @arellethram for helping me out with the subtitles~❤️


Before I get flooded with asks about subtitles for the DVD: Nope, I don’t have it. Nope, I am not doing it (well, yet? maybe? I’m busy trying to graduate from grad school for now 😊). Corrections are welcome if I made any mistake with the translations!

I don’t want the third years to leave.

I don’t want Bokuto’s setter to be anyone other than the person who understands him best. I don’t want Fukurodani to lose their heart.

I don’t want Kenma to be left behind by the one person he plays volleyball for. I don’t want Nekoma to huddle before a game and realize they’re waiting for a nerdy pep talk that isn’t coming.

I don’t want Seijoh to feel lost without their senpais’ antics. I don’t want Iwaizumi to constantly worry about Oikawa pushing himself too hard or injuring himself again or beating himself up over not being good enough. I don’t want Oikawa to try and toss to Iwaizumi because he’s in a pinch and realize too late that the toss was too low for his new team’s taller ace.

I don’t want Asahi to crumble without Noya to support him. I don’t want Kageyama to look for the bench during a game and suddenly realize he doesn’t have Suga to lean on, to compete with, to be guided by. I don’t want Ennoshita to feel like no matter how hard he tries he’ll never be as good a captain as Daichi. I don’t want Daichi, Suga, and Asahi to leave the team they believed in from the start, the team they poured their heart and sweat and souls and tears into, the team that is as great as it is because those three never gave up.

I don’t want the third years to leave.

Haikyuu!! was published in 2012 and the manga follows the 2012′s calendar for days and stuff. Which means that the third-years in the manga, are turning 18years old in 2012. So, now, in 2017, it means that Daichi, Suga, Asahi, Oikawa, Iwaizumi, Kuroo, Bokuto… all the third-years are turning 22 years old.
