The TV anime series is directed by Yasuhiro Kimura, with Yōsuke Kuroda handling series composition, Yūichi Takahashi designing the characters, and Yugo Kanno composing the music. Cast includes Junya Enoki as Yuni Kuroba, Kensho Ono as Kimichika Haijima, Yuichiro Umehara as Misao Aoki, Kent Itō as Shinichiro Oda, Shouta Aoi as Akito Kanno, and Subaru Kimura as Yusuke Okuma.

The title "2.43" refers to the average height of male volleyball players which is 2.43 meters. The series is based on the Japanese volleyball light novel series written by Yukako Kabei and illustrated by Aiji Yamakawa. Shueisha have published five volumes in three seasons since March 2015 under their Shueisha Bunko imprint. A manga adaptation with art by Yamakawa has been serialized in Shueisha's josei manga magazine Cocohana since July 2018. It has been collected in a single tankōbon volume. (via Wiki)

The story follows the high school student Kimichika Haijima who moves back to his hometown, Fukui, after causing trouble in the Tokyo Junior High School volleyball club. There, he is reunited with his childhood friend, Yunii Kuroba, who possesses outstanding physical abilities, but is vulnerable under pressure. Haijima, with his overwhelming passion and talent for volleyball, forms an ace combination with Kuroba.

The two enroll at Seiin High School, where they join the volleyball club. Awaiting them are the 163 cm hot-blooded captain Shinichirou Oda, the talented and sharp-tongued vice-captain Misao Aoki and his third-year pair, and second-year students, including Akito Kanno, who is always wearing long sleeves due to his allergy to sunlight.

The newborn team breaks its former shell of weakness and becomes Fukui's rising star. This is a certain team's journey to victory, with a series of fascinating rivals standing in their way. (via MAL)
