Oikawa hates Kageyama
There’s a phrase that goes along the lines of ” A dynamite comes in small packets”. The same can be said for Haikyuu’s number 10 Hinata Shoyo, who despite all odds is the centre of the volleyball team.
With pure determination and hard work he goes on to Nationals by the end of season 3.
Oikawa Tooru is similar to him. Despite all odds, he ditched Shiratorizawa so that he can play volleyball with his friends. From the start till the end, there’s one thing we observere, Oikawa hated Kageyama. But Why?
Did Oikawa really hate Kageyama?
Oikawa despite showing hate for Kageyama, gave him valuable tips when needed which ultimately ended up in his team’s loss. But why did he tip Kageyama? It can be attributed to the fact that men love facing other men at full force.
It is a symbolism of Oikawa’s character, honesty and the absolute belief in himself and his team.
Oikawa has in inferiority complex. He has to work his ass off to reach the talent ppl like Kags and Ushijima have naturally. It just so happened that kags became a first year at the same that ushijima started pressuring oikawa and beating his team. Oikawa recognized Ushijima in Kags because of his ability to spot talent and started to feel the same hatred and remorse. So, he refused to help him or teach him how to work in a team, instead he alienated him. That’s why I believe Oikawa was in part responsible for Kags “king phase” if I am to call it that.
