I was on a volleyball team (an actual team, out of school) for about 5 or so years as a setter. I had to quit because of an injury to both my kneecaps :/
But I miss it a lot! And as soon as I heard about a volley anime coming out, I read the entire manga and I've already watched the entire anime at least twice and I always get so pumped!
But what I love most about volleyball is the teamwork. People talk about teamwork in other sports like soccer and basketball but sports like that, if you're good enough, you can basically play the entire thing almost by yourself. That's impossible in volleyball. You do that and what that's going to earn you is a permanent spot on the bench.
My team wasn't that big and we had a limited number of really good players so we didn't have a libero and until my last year there, I was the only setter in the team. On my last year, a girl joined that showed interest and talent for the position so we trained her for that too (our first names were the same so it was a bit comical too). My favorite thing to do though is receives but while on the team what we needed most was a setter so I got trained as one.
My spikes are terrible though... and I mean terrible. And I always do a serve uh... "underneath"? I only used EU portuguese and BR portuguese terms so the english ones confuse me a bit and I don't know the words. We don't even say setter lol we had another name for it. But yeah, if I ever join a team again, I'll try out as a libero and see how that goes.
I'm in the mainland now but I'm going home for my birthday so I get to play with my cousin! She was the one that made me join the team and she was my captain as well. She was the best overall player of the team (I was always so proud T_T) but her serves just about killed you hehe
