KenHina might be an underrated pairing compared to some of the other big ships in the fandom, but that's what makes it so special.

And this movie? It's giving KenHina stans everything we've ever dreamed of.

Let's dive into the KenHina goodness and celebrate this underrated ship finally getting its time to shine!

What is KenHina?

If you're unfamiliar, KenHina is the ship name for our beloved setter, Kenma Kozume, and our energetic ball of sunshine, Shoyo Hinata.

Think about it: the quiet, introverted gamer and the loud, passionate volleyball fanatic. They're total opposites, right?

But that's exactly what makes them work so well together. It's the classic case of opposites attract but in the best way possible.

Throughout the series, we've seen their friendship grow stronger and stronger.

Remember when Kenma finally stepped out of his comfort zone to help Hinata during the training camp? Or that moment when Hinata inspired Kenma to keep playing volleyball because it was fun?

Their bond is all about mutual respect, trust, and understanding. They bring out the best in each other, on and off the court.

And that's why KenHina is so freakin' amazing. It's a slow burn, a hidden gem. It's the kind of connection that leaves you wanting more, and trust me, the new Haikyuu movie delivers!

Why KenHina shines in the Dumpster Movie

Remember that first practice match between Nekoma and Karasuno?

Hinata, our ball of sunshine, makes a promise to Kenma, the quiet gamer: he'll make Kenma admit that volleyball is fun and beat him one day.

It's a bold declaration, but Hinata is nothing if not determined!

Fast forward to the "Decisive Battle at the Garbage Dump" movie, and guess what? Hinata delivers!

But let's rewind a bit to the Tokyo training arc. That's where we really see the KenHina magic start to brew.

Kenma, in his own quiet way, tells Hinata he wants a real showdown with Karasuno, a match with some serious stakes. And boy, does that light a fire under Hinata!

Hinata's not just playing to win anymore; he's playing to make Kenma happy. He wants to show Kenma how awesome volleyball can be, how exhilarating and just plain fun.

After an intense rally that leaves Kenma exhausted, he utters those magical words: "That was fun." It's a simple statement, but the way Hinata lights up, the pure joy radiating from him.

It's almost like Kenma saying volleyball is fun was a much bigger win!

That drive to make someone else smile through something you both love? That's the heart of what makes KenHina so special.

See, their relationship isn't just about winning or losing. It's about pushing each other to be their best, to find joy in the game, and to grow as players and people.

It's about Kenma, the quiet gamer, finding joy in life thanks to Hinata.

KenHina might not be the most obvious ship out there, but it's the real deal. And for KenHina fans, it's the most wholesome and fulfilling ship in the entire Haikyuu!! universe!

The Rise of the Haikyuu Fandom

The Haikyuu!! community has been buzzing with excitement since the movie dropped, and the KenHina discourse is hotter than ever!

Everyone's writing essays and making posts psychoanalyzing every moment, and honestly, it's the most fun I've had online in ages.

But it's not just about the movie itself. The fandom is overflowing with incredible fan art, fiction, and edits.

And the good part? It's not just exclusive to KenHina!

The fandom died down a bit because of the lack of content. But now, artists are creating the most wonderful artworks.

Writers are on fire with their fanfic updates. Editors are putting out the hottest thirst traps out there.

And the rest? Delivering the best quality memes there is.

The creativity and passion of this fandom are truly awe-inspiring. And the theories? Oh boy, they're wild!

Timeskip KenHina

We all know the movie gave us some serious KenHina fuel. But let's talk about how in the timeskip, Kenma's out here sponsoring Hinata like a sugar daddy.

Think about it: Kenma, the low-key millionaire gamer, funding Hinata's beach volleyball dreams... In Brazil? It's the ultimate power move, showing his belief in Hinata's potential!

Plus, let's be real, who wouldn't want Kenma as their sugar daddy? He's got the money, the brains, and the looks to boot.

But it's not just about the money. Kenma's support goes beyond just financial backing. He's always there for Hinata, cheering him on from afar, sending encouraging texts, and even ensuring he's watching on full screen!

Who needs a traditional relationship when you can have a sugar daddy/sports star dynamic like this?

If you're not already on board the KenHina train, then what are you waiting for?

And hey, even if they don't end up canon, who cares? Our imaginations are limitless, and that's the beauty of shipping, right?

But enough about my rambling. What do YOU think? Did I miss any KenHina moments in the movie that made you scream into your pillow? Are you as excited as I am about the future of this ship?

Hit me up in the Otaku Community, and let's talk about these two cuties together!
