Haikyuu!! Episode 22
It’s true the perseverance may be the key to success, but volleyball is not an individualistic sport. It is a sport that requires 6 people on the field, with reserves ready to switch in anytime. It is a sport that requires team motivation as everyone’s morale will affect one another. It is a sport that requires teamwork with different positions working together, for e.g. the libero receiving the ball and the setter passing the ball to the striker.
We can train extremely hard to be the best at something, but we can’t be the best at everything. So that’s what teammates are for, to specialise in their own way and complement one another, to build the best team. And that’s why in certain situations, individual perseverance will not attain success, but rather, teamwork.
