Haikyuu!! Episode 20

The pressure of the intense game against Aoba is beginning to become overwhelming. The one that has been most affected by this is Kageyama, who has put the entire burden on himself to win the game. This unnerving pressure was communicated to the audience through composition.

Shots of Aoba players in the background were more prevalent with Kageyama than any other character. By having Aoba players in Kageyama’s background numerous times a consistent imagery of “one vs. team” gets established and provides a visual of his self imposed burden to win singlehandedly. This was also an effective way to evoke from the audience the tense feeling that Kageyama was experiencing.
