Japanese sports anime series Haikyuu!! has announced a new addition to their growing franchise, a set of talking poster toys that allow fans to interact with their favourite manga characters.

The show's lead character is described as a "hot-blooded, unrefined but friendly protagonist" and has gained an instant fan following after the show's April premiere. The show's unique wall accents feature two designs, one of main character Shoyo Hinata and one of his badboy sidekick Tobio Kageyama. The posters are created by Japanese toymaker Takara Tomy.

The toymaker's recently video release shows the talking poster concept in all its glory. When touched, the poster comes to life and begins to speak, shouting "My name’s Shoyo Hinata". The wall accessory will go on sale on August 10th and is sure to be a popular item among the show's fans!
