Haikyuu has been viewers’ favorite anime since its first season. Oikawa’s Tooru has become favorite character as of the second season. He plays the setter. Which is one of the crucial positions in volleyball. Because he essentially decides where the ball will go. This can be not easy to do consistently on your own, so most teams have two setters. So they can switch off at any time and relieve pressure when necessary.
He was determined to be better than the best. Even if it meant giving up his chance at being number one. This is how fans have come to know setter Oikawa in the past few seasons of Haikyuu. He strives to achieve his goal of becoming an all-star player and surpassing Ushijima Wakatoshi. But what if I told you that this goal is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Oikawa’s true potential? What if I told you that there’s more to him than meets the eye?
This article will explore Oikawa’s nature of talent and other things about it.
The Storyline of Haikyuu Series:
Haikyuu centers around Tobio Kageyama, a volleyball player who likes to be known as King of the Court for his excellent skills. However, he is always short-tempered on and off of it because he can’t understand why no one recognizes him as a star. Along with his teammate, Shouyou Hinata. They make up a formidable duo whose reputation proceeds them wherever they go in middle school volleyball teams. After joining Karasuno High School’s team. They finally beat Shiratorizawa Academy when they went against each other in their first official match. That is until tooru Oikawa was a sub for Shiratorizawa.
Both Oikawa’s and Kageyama are fighting for that setter position in the Karasuno and Shiratorizawa teams. Which then followed by a personal grudge between them. Then tooru Oikawa overcomes his fear of a genius setter through these lines. “One day later, Toru Oikawa enters shiratoriwa high school gymnasium where he sees Genji dadan coming towards him along with an intimidating coach.”
The top cast of Haikyuu:
The top cast of Haikyuu consists of Kageyama Tobio, Tsukishima Kei, Hinata Shouyou, Yamaguchi Tadashi, Tanaka Koutarou, Oikawa tooru, and Yachi Hitoka. However, many of these characters are not often seen in Haikyuu in favor of the main cast. Maybe because of lack of popularity. Fans see each one play a role in the story with different characteristics. But it was different from what fans would expect to happen on Argentina’s side. For example, instead of kurono, rika is choosing as the setter. Her brother , kurono takuya choose as setter over her. Even though most people think they both have better skills, Takuya still wins over rika. Many people agree that Oikawa’s is everyone’s favorite character on haikyuu manga or anime.
Who is the tallest person in Haikyuu?
It is Daichi Sawamura from Haikyuu. Height 6 ft 4 inches. It has the nickname Zeus of Nekoma. Because of his height and physical strength. There are other characters in haikyuu that are pretty tall, like Kenma Kozume. But he doesn’t make it to first place because he lacks physical strength. What makes Daichi earn that title is not only his height. But also his determination and hard work, as well as excellent athletic skills which help him win over opponents in volleyball, matches one by one.
Who’s is Oikawa in Haikyuu?
In Haikyuu, Oikawa’s is Karasuno High School Volleyball Club’s, Kageyama Tobio’s, and Hinata Shouyou’s senpai. Haikyuu Oikawa was a former member of the Kurasuno High school Varsity team and a setter. Before transferring to Karasuno, he was notorious for his bad-mouthing behavior towards former teammates. Also famous for his crafty play style. As a result of his fear of hitting, he develops unique setting skills to avoid it.
His parents saw great genius in him since he was young, just like Kageyama. They expect a lot from him when he got older. But that starts to affect his ability to succeed at his goals. This is why he always refuses to talk about anything other than volleyball. He doesn’t want his parents looking down on what he does for fun. However, there are times when you can see the sadness in his eyes and a sense of loneliness in how he interacts with others.
Who is Oikawa’s crush?
Oikawa’s has a crush on Kuroo Tetsurou. Kuroo is one of his best friends and teammate. But, according to some rumors, he’s gay, and so yeah! Anyway, Oikawa haikyuu doesn’t care if Kuroo likes him or not because he thinks that everyone must like him by default! Let’s keep in mind that although their relationship seems more than just friends on Haikyuu. It does mean something when you feel in love with your male friend. For instance, oikawa manga isn’t directly interested in having relationships with Kuroo. He wants to get along well with him while they are teammates, but things can quickly change. Because there isn’t much information about what happens between them after season 1. So, we will have to wait until Karasuno vs. Shiratorizawa match-up.
How old is Oikawa in Haikyuu?

— Oikawa Tooru (@real_setter) August 21, 2014
Oikawa is 21 years old in Haikyuu. Toru Oikawa was born on March 1st, 1995, making him a Pisces and a year older than Kageyama. Iwaizumi is one year younger than Oikawa, so if they’re in high school at 16/17. He’s 18, and Iwaizumi’s 17. In middle school, if they were 14/15 years old. Iwaizumi would be 15, and Oikawa would be 16. High school would make them 16 to 19 years old. So technically, even though he was an ace setter for his school team in middle school. Oikawa’s didn’t play volleyball until high school. That means Oikawa isn’t considered a genius when playing volleyball. It takes more than just talent to become a fantastic player. Like what fans see from Oikawa while playing against Karasuno or Aoba Johsai.
In which episode does Oikawa cry:
Oikawa cries in an episode of the declaration of war. He said that he didn’t want to play volleyball anymore. Because it was too scary for him, even though he was a genius setter. He hated not knowing what everyone would do on the court and not predicting plays. His teammates are always doing different things than he would do if he were playing, which makes him scared. He cries at first, but then Hanamaki tells him they need him to be their setter. And as a setter, they will all protect each other. Because they are a team, just like how when you are with your family you can rely on them when you’re scared or sad. Which gave Oikawa’s enough confidence to keep going.
Hyoui and Yaku start a new training regime, in which they practice 10-foot tosses. However, because Hinata doesn’t have enough experience or technique, he cannot perform them and his teammates, resulting in a loss for Karasuno. Later on, Haizaki says that Hinata should leave Karasuno if he can’t improve himself. After a pep talk from Kageyama and seeing Hanamaki confidently hit his tosses without fear of failure, Hinata overcomes his fear of failure.
What happened to Oikawa’s?
When you’re a talentless hack. It can be easy to think that every other player on your team is better than you. And it is not just talking about intellectually. Of course, there are many intellectual reasons not to respect yourself as a volleyball player. No, it means physically. In Haikyuu Season 3 Episode 5, viewers learn that Oikawa’s use to have an irrational fear of being set by his teammate Kageyama. Because he was better than him in every way.
But rather than think about how much he had to improve as a player. Oikawa Argentina starts to focus on what Kageyama had that he didn’t. Like height and jumping power. Rather than figuring out why Kageyama is so good at setting and working to become just as good at positioning himself. Oikawa instead makes excuses for his lack of talent. Which delays his growth as a volleyball player and hurts his teammates, who are better players. Because they have to drag Oikawa along when they know he is holding them back.
What color are Oikawa’s eyes?
Some fans have wondered what color Oikawa’s eyes are in the Haikyuu series. This is not a big secret. In chapter 106 of Haikyuu manga, viewers can see that he has dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. However, in several anime openings, his eyes are different colors. In opening two, his eyes were green, but in opening 4 and 5, they were blue. What do you think about it? What color would you give to him? I personally like Oikawa’s with greyish brown eyes. Because he seems like someone who doesn’t care about how people look at him or how things around him look. He looks very natural and careless person who hates artificiality.
What makes Oikawa’s so special?
If there is one thing that makes Oikawa’s special, it would be his fearlessness. Like every other player, he had doubts and fears about his skills and ability, but unlike most players, he did not let them hold him back from living life to its fullest. Unlike others who hide behind their masks of invincibility or self-loathing insecurities, he was able to take each moment as a learning experience and grow from them. This helps him be fearless when setting for his team because he has nothing to lose.
