Yaku is a third year at Nekoma while Haiba Lev is a first year. Both are in the volleyball club, Yaku the team libero and Lev the middle blocker (a self-declared ace).
Lev and Yaku are opposites in physical traits. While Lev is a towering figure, Yaku is short, even if he doesn't like to admit it. Lev's bluntness leads him to directly point this fact out (which eventually leads to Yaku kicking or hitting Lev).
Lev is Yaku's underclassman and "student", who he coaches regularly in receiving (much to Lev's dismay). The two appear to get along, but Lev frequently attempts to escape Yaku's merciless coaching and will at times poke fun at the latter's height, which frequently sends Yaku flying into a rage hitting or kicking him. However, like everyone else on the team, Lev respects and admirer Yaku for his great abilities as a libero.
It's a very common AU in fanworks for Yaku to be in college and Lev either be in his third year or a freshman in college.
Another mildly popular type of fiction with this ship is A/B/O (Alpha/Beta/Omega), with Yaku being an Omega and Lev an Alpha.
Yaku is sometimes shown as a insecure person because of his height, but hides his insecurities under a strict "senpai attitude". This is often resolved by Lev, as he is the only one that manages to see behind Yaku's "mask" and make him overcome his fears/insecurities.
Lev cannot speak Russian; despite being of Russian-Japanese descent, he was born and raised in Japan. In contrast to that, a trope is for Lev to be able to speak Russian, and Yaku being very weak for it, letting Lev get away with most things.
On AO3, LevYaku is the most popular ship for both Lev and Yaku.
- This pairing has a 30cm (11.8in) height difference, Lev being 196cm (6' 5.2") and Morisuke being 166 cm (5' 5.4").
- In the second Haikyu!! popularity poll, Yaku got 226 more votes than Lev, making him 19th while Lev was in 20th.
