    Summary

    It’s Tokyo 2021, backdrop for the XXXII Summer Olympiad Games. Oikawa Tooru returns to Japan after a triumphant, eight-year long run as pro setter in Argentina’s professional volleyball League. And it's been just as long since Hajime watched him disappear across the oceans, maybe never to return.

    On reuniting with your best friend, standing atop the world stage, and trying to catch wisps of a golden boy. An Olympic tale, one lifetime in the making.

    Summary

    Iwaizumi thought he was destined to be the Very Best like no one ever was, until family circumstances cuts his quest for pokémon glory short. Years later, he earns his seat as the ground/rock-type Gym Leader in his hometown, but his life doesn't really begin until he gets an obnoxious neighbor across the lake.

    or, maybe not the slow burn Pokémon au that we want, but the slow burn Pokémon au that we get.

    I love Pokémon aus and this one was so good. The way their relationship developed, the climax scene... yes. 👌👌

    The plot of this is amazing. It is pretty tragic, so definitely set aside some time for tears to be shed, but the buildup is so nice and the way the action scenes are written is enthralling.

    Summary

    Some people develop powers as they grow older; others don't. This fact doesn’t bother Oikawa Tooru too much, at least not when he’s young. Then, at eight years old, Iwaizumi Hajime discovers his own ability. He’s stronger than anyone could be, given human limitations. It’s a broad and useful power, one that could take Iwaizumi down any number of paths in the future. He’s discovered his ability early, too, and all of the adults in the neighborhood say that he’s got a bright future ahead of him.

    Oikawa could’ve told them that ages ago—he’s always known Iwaizumi is special, long before he started being able to lift furniture with one hand. Everything Iwaizumi does, Oikawa has always done with him. So he goes home and waits for his own ability to manifest.

    Nearly ten years later, on the eve of the last tournament of his high school volleyball career, he’s still waiting.

    Volleyball with superpowers!! Just a really awesome concept. I really love how Oikawa’s relationship with his team was written and I liked the back-and-forth timeline. Makes me really curious to think about what Oikawa could do with a team if he knew all along!!
