the japanese portal Collabo Coffee published an article indicating a collaboration between Cookpad Live Cafe and the multimedia franchise of Haikyuu!!. The interesting thing is that the wording mentions a fifth season of the anime adaptation, which indirectly confirms it since it has not been officially announced.
It is worth noting that in the official press release, published by PR Timesthere is no mention of the fifth season of the franchise, so it is understood that the official was edited later, probably at the request of the production staff of Haikyuu!!. Regarding collaboration, the following is mentioned:
- In the third edition of the collaboration “Haikyuu!! x Cookpad Live Cafe”, titled as “Nekoma Festival”, will include the theme of the “Karasuno Institute vs. Nekoma Institute”, which will be represented in the fifth season of the anime. The lineup includes a collaboration menu inspired by popular characters like Lev Haiba and other popular characters, as well as new merchandise including a newly drawn mini-carrier!
