NEO Awards 2016 Best Manga Haikyu!!, VIZ Media

After the sports series proved to be a surprise hit in its animated form, we were thrilled to see that NEO readers were embracing its original manga too – so much so, that they voted it their top title for 2016!

The series follows the trials and tribulations of Shoyo Hinata, whose lack of height is more than made up for by his huge enthusiasm for his chosen sport – volleyball! Haikyu!!’s success is even more incredible given the sport is hardly a mainstream activity in the UK, but as this title proves, there’s more to sports manga than just the sport!

“We are delighted that readers of NEO magazine have chosen Haikyu!! as the best manga – it’s been a fantastic success, with many more volumes to come,” said Sarah Anderson of VIZ Media.
