Favorite Setter

This is such an unfair question, it’s not even funny. When I first saw it, I didn’t know if I’d even be able to answer it. All of my very top favorite characters are setters, as I stated in a previous post. Then I realized there’s one setter I haven’t mentioned quite yet, and he definitely needs to be noticed in this challenge.


I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned Kageyama Tobio yet! I’ve just been waiting for the right moment to, I guess.

A couple cool things about him besides being an amazingly talented player are: he has the same birthday as me, and I cosplayed as him in November, though some of you already know that.

Back on topic: I love his development throughout the series much like Tsukishima, though they develop in different ways. Kageyama has always had that passion for playing, but that passion was selfish, and was preventing his teammates from working well with him. It hurt him as a player, since in a team sport you really can’t ride off your own talent. It’s a challenge for him to work with others well, but through practice and reevaluation, he’s able to finally work with his team.

He comes across as a brash, unapproachable person through his sometimes sour expressions, but he’s really just an awkward kid obsessed with volleyball.

In case you haven’t heard about this on my Twitter:

Today I hit 150 followers!! It took about 3 1/2 months to get from 100 to 150, and for me, that’s pretty insane. Other blogs grow much quicker, I know, but this time last year I had maybe 30 or so followers, and I was thinking of giving up. Took a break for a month and then OWLS revived me, and here I am now! Doing this silly little challenge about volleyball boys whom I love so much. I never thought I’d be able to have such fun like this when I started. I stressed about being noticed, if my posts were even being read, but I can rest easy now since I know I have a place in this community.

Thank you everyone for being here!
