Once called a fallen powerhouse and known as "Flightless Crows," Karasuno High School has finally taken flight at nationals. With a comprehensive performance against Tsubakihara Academy in their first match, the team is now facing its toughest opponent yet: the runners-up of the last Spring Tournament, Inarizaki High School. Furthermore, dealing with the formidable twin Miya brothers only makes things more difficult for Karasuno.
As soon as the match begins, Karasuno is overwhelmed by all the noise and jeers from the supporters of Inarizaki High but rekindles its strength thanks to its own loyal fans. Karasuno also gains some momentum by utilizing an attack centered on Shouyou Hinata, but the eccentric play of Atsumu and Osamu Miya delivers an unexpected blow that leaves their opponent astounded.
Things are bound to get intense as the match progresses between these two teams. Will Karasuno be able to defeat Inarizaki High and overcome the hurdles that threaten its pursuit to the top?

The volleyball matches themselves are a sight to behold, with powerful serves, strategic plays, and impossible saves creating an immersive visual spectacle.
Music: Poignant and Intense
Another crucial element that contributes significantly to the overall charm of Haikyuu!! To The Top Part 2 is its music. The OST draws the audience into its rhythmic grip, accentuating the overall emotional intensity of the series. The opening theme, “Toppako” by SUPER BEAVER, perfectly encapsulates the spirit of dashing youth and infinite possibility.
