Hinata boarded the city bus that would take him to Aoba You say High School. It was the going to be the start of three long years. When he reached the stadium for the entrance ceremony he had the biggest grin on his face.

"It's time to start my journey to become the next 'Little Giant'," Hinata thought yo himself as he took his seat waiting for the cermony to begin.

"Hey is this seats taken," A voice spoke up next to Hinata. Hinata looked up two see to boys standing there one had spikes black hair that made his head look like a radish. While the other had a bored expression on his face with dark hair that was parted in two directions.

"Nah it's not there not taken," Hinata said waving to the seats next to his.

"Thanks," the one with the radish shaped head as the two took the seats next to him. "Hey you kinda look familiar have we meet before?" he asked Hinata.

Hinata took a good look at him he did look vaugley familiar. It suddenly clicked in his head. "Yeah I played you in that volleyball match last year," Hinata said.

"Oh yeah your team really sucked," the bored one said.

"Oi Akira that's kinda rude of you," Radish head said.

"It's okay uh I don't remember your name," Hinata said.

"Name is Kindaichi, Yutaro Kindaichi," Kindaichi said.

"Okay Kindaichi what Akira said was alright sure it may sting, but what he was saying was true we did stink," Hinata said.

"Okay Kindaichi what Akira said was alright sure it may sting, but what he was saying was true we did stink," Hinata said.

"I know it's true, but it's still not something you say to someone," Kindaichi said. After that they were silent for a while until Kindaichi spoke up again. "So you going to join the volleyball club Hinata?" he asked.

"You bet I am there's someone I want to play again," Hinata said with such strong conviction Kindaichi looked scared for a spilt second before he composers himself.

"You mean Kageyama don't you?" Akira asked.

"You bet I do I mean he was on a whole another level when it comes to skill," Hinata said.

"Yeah I know what you mean," Kindaichi said. "However because of it he thinks that he's the best out there and when you can't catch his fast sets he yells at you," he continued.

"Yeah he probably won't improve much regardless what team he joins if they even let him on the team," Akira said. Hinata and Kindaichi nodded in agreement. ( A/N: Hinata won't have any intense rivalry with either Kindaichi or Akira. Just one were he just once to prove he can still play at there level.)

It wasn't long after there conversation that the entrance ceremony ended, and they were all given there schedules, and it turns out that both Hinata and Kindaichi were in the same class, class1-3 (Hinata will be smarter in this version thanks to Oikawa and Iwaizumi.) While Akira was in class 1-2.

"Looks like we're going to be in the same class," Kindaichi said to Hinata.

"Yeah I can't wait to sign up for Volleyball," Hinata said jumping in the air surprising both Kindaichi and Akira with his enthusiasm.

"Man you sure got a lot of energy in you," Akira said lazily.

"Is he always like this?" Hinata whispered to Kindaichi. Kindaichi just nodded his head.

"Yeah you'll get used to it," Kindaichi said.

"I hope so," Hinata said.


Hinata was racing through the hallways of the school trying to find the volleyball club booth. "Hinata wait up I don't think the booths are going anywhere," Kindaichi shouted as he tried to keep up with Hinata.

They found out that they had a lot in common other then volleyball. They both like to read manga and watch anime. There favorite is DragonBall Z. They also both like meat buns, but Kindaichi doesn't like them as much as Hinata.

"I know that, but I'm just so excited I get to practice in an actual volleyball court," Hinata called back. Soon they along with Akira found the Volleyball booth, and it was being run by none other then Oikawa and Iwaizumi.

"Oikawa and Iwaizumi senpai how are you?" Hinata asked.

"It's captain for you now," Oikawa said.

"Wait you know each other?" Kindaichi asked Hinata.

"Yeah it was Oikawa and Iwaizumi senpai that made me change my school chose from Karasuno to Aoba Jousai," Hinata said.

"Don't forget we helped you get alot better at volleyball and helped you pass your entrance exam," Oikawa said.

"Sorry about that senpai I am very grateful for what you did forr me over the summer," Hinata apologized and bowing his head.

"Hey don't sweat Hinata we were happy to help a future team member," Oikawa said.

"So how did you guys actually meet?" Kindaichi asked Hinata.

"Well we actually meet right after our match we had," Hinata said.

"Yeah me and Oikawa came to see if there were any potential players in the third year that might come to Aoba Jousai," Iwaizumi said.

"Yeah and we were both impressed with how Hinata held together a team of complete rookies and his drive to win even with his back to the wall," Oikawa said.

"Don't forget my impressive jumping," Hinata said.

"Well that to," Oikawa said. After talking for a little while longer Iwaizumi decided to get them back to the situation at hand.

"So I'm guess the two of you are planning to join the team as well?" Iwaizumi asked even though he knew the answer already, because he had there club forms that they filled out in homeroom.

"Of course we are," Kindaichi said and Akira just nodded his head.

"Well then let us be the first to welcome you to the Aoba Johsai volleyball team," Iwaizumi said.

"Alright now I get to actually practice witha real team!" Hinata shouted. Oikawa inwardly smiled to himself.

"Yeap this is definitely going to be an interesting year that's for sure," Oikawa whispered to Iwaizumi.

Iwaizumi just nodded his head. "Alright we're going to wait here for a little while longer to see if anyone else is going to be joining the team," Iwaizumi said.

"To get to the volleyball gym go down the hall till you hit the court yard then take a right and you should be able to see it from there," Oikawa said.

"Thank you Oikawa senpai," the three boys said bowing in unison. They then took off to find the volleyball court.

"And please try not to fight with any of the other third or second years please," Iwaizumi called after them, but they were already out of site.

"Well what do you think of our other potential candidates for the team?" Oikawa asked.

"And please try not to fight with any of the other third or second years please," Iwaizumi called after them, but they were already out of site.

"Well what do you think of our other potential candidates for the team?" Oikawa asked.

"Kindaichi defiantly has the motivation and I say we put him as a middle blocker because of his height," Iwaizumi said.

"Now what about Akira?" Oikawa asked.

"Not sure if he's excited about playing or if that's how he always is I'm thinking that we make him a middle blocker as well," (A/N I know that in the actual series Akira is A wing spiker, but since Hinata is going to be a wing spiker Akira will now be a middle blocker.)

"And obviously we're going to have Hinata be our new wing spiker?" Oikawa asked.

"It's really the only position that really suits him," Iwaizumi said.

"Yeah your right he doesn't have the height to be an effective middle blocker," Oikawa said.

"He doesn't have the reflexes to be a Libero or the insight to be a setter," Iwaizumi said.

"Hey I take offense to that I taught him everything he knows about setting!" Oikawa shouted in protest.

"Shut up Crappykawa I wasn't insulting your teaching skills it's just that he personally wants to be a spiker," Iwaizumi said.

"Well that makes fell a little bit better, but did you have to throw in an insulting nickname in that comment?" Oikawa asked. Iwaizumi didn't say anything, and that was the only answer Oikawa needed.

However before he could say anything to counter what Iwaizumi said someone else spoke up.

"So got any new players," Oikawa turned to see two fellow third years and teammates.

"Hey Issei and Takahiro yeah we got three new players all of them have potential to make the starting lineup," Oikawa said.

"Hopefully they won't and try to start any fights with the second years," Issei said.

"Nah I don't think we'll see anything other then some friendly rivalry," Iwaizumi said.

"Let's up it's just going to be that. We don't need anything like that otherwise there will be tension the entire year," Takahiro said. Soon they were finished up they made there way to the gymnasium to begin the first day of practice.

When they got to the gym they could here shouting and something hit the ground. The four of them looked at each other in confusion.

"Well the only way to find out is to go in," Oikawa said. The other three nodded there they entered the gym the site before them was a very interesting one.

There was a three on three going on It was Hinata, Shigeru Yahaba there pinch server and other setter, and Shinji Watari there Libero on one side and on the other was Kindaichi, Akira, and Kaneo Yuda a third year and a wing spiker.

They looked at the score board it was in second set and Hinata's team was ahead by two points.

"Alright Hinata give it a good serve," this was Shinji. Hinata tossed to ball into the air ran and jumped slamming the ball over the net to the other side. However Kaneo was able to receive it but it was a little off.

"Sorry Kindaichi it's a little off, Kaneo said.

"Alrighty here you go Akira," Kindaichi said as he set the ball up for Akira who ran and jumped in the air only to be blocked by both Shinji and Shigeru. The ball hit the court and the whistle went off singling the point then a longer blow ending the set. Final score Hinata's team 25 Kindaich's team 22. Everyone with the exception of Hinata were exhausted.

Clapping filled the gym and every one turned to see Oikawa and some other third years.

"Sorry captain we just wanted to see what they had in them," Shinji said bowing his head.

"No it's perfectly alright I was actually thinking that we should have done this as a little ice breaker to get the first years aquainted with there upperclassmen," Oikawa said. Shinji breathed a sigh of relief.

"Well now that we don't have to do that let's get introductions out of the way. Let's start with the remaining third years.

"Hello my name is Issei Matsukawa and my positon is middle blocker please to meet you," Issei said.

"Now my name is Takahiro Hanamaki and I play wing spiker pleasure to meet you as well," Takahiro said.

"Now I'm sure the three of you introduce yourself to those who are already here but please introduce yourself to these two," Iwaizumi said.

"I'll go first my name is Shoyo Hinata and I'm very grateful for this opportunity I promise I won't let any of you down. Please to meet you," Hinata said bowing.

"My name is Yūtarō Kindaichi and I to am greatful for this opportunity and I will try my very best to make you all proud please to meet you," Kindaichi said bowing as well.

"And now it's finally my turn. My name is Akira Kunimi I will do my best to make the starting position please to meet you," Akira said in a monotone voice and bowed.

"Now that introdtions are out of the way we need to go over a few things," a new voice spoke up. Everyone turned to see two men walk towards them.

"Everyone this is head coach Nobuteru Irihata and coach Sadayuki Mizoguchi," Oikawa said. Hinata, Kindaichi, and Akira all bowed to the coaches.

"Pleasure to meet you sirs," the three of them said.

"There will be none of that here," Nobuteru said. "I don't like being called sir just call us coach so and so," he continued.

"Yes, Coach Nobuteru," they said bowing again.

"That's better anyways now that we're all here I want you to know that getting on the starting lineup is going to be very difficult," Nobuteru said. "Your going to have to work harder than ever before," he continued.

"Yes coach," Hinata, Kindaichi, and Akira said.

"Okay we'll start off with serving 25 each to start of with," coach Sadayuki said.

"Yes Coach," everyone in the gym said, and so it begins Hinata finally can practice volleyball with a real team with talented teammates just how far will they go.

Thank you for reading this chapter. Author's note Kageyama will still be playing for Karasuno. Like Hinata I'm making him smarter then he was in the original story. Please stay tuned for the next chapter, and please give me reviews.
