Good chapter. Prediction: Hinata will bust his ass off as ball-guy and in the training afterhours the coach will train with him.

I would think the first yrs will do their afterhours and hinata will join in, like he joined in with Kuroo and co with Tsukki at summer training 3rd gym.

Last Two chapters have been amazing and making me hype like Eyeshield 21.

This upcoming tournament is going to be legendary, and there is another tiny giant :O.

Hinata's frustration at not being able to practice with everyone sucks, but I think he will learn a trick or two that will be crucial.

New chapter's up

These training chapters have been fun, and a good switch up compared to previous training arcs. I just hope it's not just Hinata improving drastically like this. Him improving on his receives like this makes sense though, which is most important to me.

The discussion's about the two cover teams is going to be interesting. I agree with Furudate that Tsukushima would make a lot of sense on the second team, but I'm not sure I'd switch out Tendou or Aone for him. Both really strong teams overall. having them square off in an omake would be amazing.

I loved the bit where Hinata asked if they were going to train afterhours, and they assumed he would ask to play as well, but he said "I can be your ballboy".

I really hope he gets a chance to train in this arc at some point. He's training only reflexes, and that's only half of receiving (the half he was already good to begin with). Control is the other half, and for that he needs to actually play.

I loved that part. I think he is getting better training as a ball boy anyway. It is best as blocker that he learns how to receive spikes and improve his footwork. Faster reaction times equals better spikes

No koganegawa what.

Im glad Oikawa got on a team, surprirsed both he and kenma werent on first team, where the kenma fans. Tsuki still got 1000 votes so Im glad for that, the drop off to only 250 for tendo is a bit sad, And where the Goshiki Tsutomu love.

Yaku getting mentioned as well as pleasing, hes the best libero in the series.

I love some of the new character designs. Sakusa might already be one of my favourite designs, and that new short kid also looks interesting. I loved the chapter's ending too, I wonder where Tsukki wants to go.

Tsuki asking Hinata to go somewhere, hole me, my tsukihina.

I like the new characters, they manage to feel different than the usual folks we've seen. Hope we get full arcs with them. Haikyuu could be a long manga eventually.

New chapter is up.

Really really great one, might be one of my favourite of the new training arc. I love when the training involves more than just Hinata, doubly so if it's Tsukishima. Seperating Hinata and Kageyama was such a great move by Furudate, Kageyama especially shines when he's dealing with his problems on his own.

Haikyuu 217

Hinata has great reflexes. speed, and eyesight but he is finally developing the one thing lacks. Being on the sidelines has allowed him to analyze and think about his play style. Picking up simple things he never fully grasped.


great chapter. What better way to show you improved than to coach your rival.

Yeah, I have no clue why some people were expecting more. The season is called Karasuno vs Shiratorizawa, for crying out loud. It was never going to go beyond that.

We all knew it'd be a focused season, but we expected at least a full cour and maybe a sequel hook with the other teams' showing (even if it's far into the future due to where the manga is currently at).

Now I'm scared that they will end it there and maybe call it quits.

There's no way they're ending it there. Haikyuu is not Soma, it's actually popular. This is just a way to get the Shiratorizawa match out there as soon as possible, and keep the season 2 hype going. And I think it's a good thing.

It really would. But it was supposed to happen when they're driving back to school after beating Seijo and they're all asleep. But season 2 skipped it, and looking at the pv for season 3 it looks like the match is already starting in the first episode. I don't see how there's any space for the flashback, unfortunately.

I liked when they were training serves and Kageyama told Hinata his jumps will still be higher and hinted at some serve training for him as well. Hinata could be an awesome server if he serves like he spikes.

I have no idea what the latest chapter last scene was about, though. Kageyama being a dick without meaning it again?

I think he is figuring out a way to improve his sets for the team, but because he is Kageyama it is going to come off dickish.

Hinata has a lot of potential to rekt across the map. the fact that he is a first year too is crazy

I don't know, I hope Hinata doesn't become some monster that can do everything. I'm already a bit apprehensive about his new receiving skills, adding jumpserves to that would be too much. I like that he's finally learning the basics so he can at least contribute to the defence, for example, but I don't want him to suddenly be on the same level as Daichi with receiving, or Asahi with serving.

About the chapter, it seems like Kageyama is (unsurprisingly) letting the "goody-two-shoes" get to him.

Chapter 224

Sorry for the double post, but that was a really good chapter. It's going to be interesting to see what kind of crazy shit Kageyama is going to make them do now that he's confident with his position and himself. It's also good to see Tsukki develop, as always. I like that he's going to be getting a bit more to do in offense, especially with Hinata growing so much as well. The 2-on-2 practice at the training camp combined with someone who'll push him to do more should have interesting results.

I'm so ready for Nationals to start.

Damn, Datekou is really good right now.

I'm absolutely loving the team development though, it's always been really apparent that Kageyama hasn't been as close to the rest of the team. I can't wait to see the great character moments coming in the future now that he's more comfortable with actually taking initiative and voicing his opinion. I'm already loving his interactions with Tanaka.

I realized recently that the random characters are getting more dialogue. I still don't know their names aside from Enoshita, but they spoke more in the past 10 chapters than in the entirety of the series. Hopefully one of them gets the spotlight soon. Enoshita was a nice surprise.

Narita got to play during the Shiratorizawa match, IIRC. Kinoshita's been practising floaters and apparently got pretty good at them, I think we saw him practising a couple of chapters ago. I'm actually more nervous about Ennoshita, he doesn't seem to have any particular strengths on the court aside from his mental support.

Past two chapters have been awesome. The team is somehow even better than the last game they played. Hints has been practicing a lot by himself but he is really going to need practice with the team when it comes to recieves. Looks we are also getting another powerful server. This is why I hope we get one more year after nationals. I wanna see the team evolve

Tsukki having to keep watch and go after Kageyama and Hinata was the best. Ennoshita would be a cruel captain in the 2nd year.

I wonder if next chapter the writer will do the usual show several strong teams at once and their roster like many other sports series do.

Shimizu and Yachi convo was nice.

Not mentioning Tsuki getting the camp invite to Shiratorizawa was disappointing. I need s4 though, seeing Nohebi and Itachiyama, as welll as mainly, the Shiratorizawa training camp is most needed. I miss Koganegawa, Goshiki, Kindaichi, Kunimi, Hinata, and Tsuki animated already.

Whew, I read all the chapters between the ending of season 3 of the anime up to date. Great stuff as usual.

Standout for me was 232. Was worried that it was going to be some nonsense with Hinata losing his shoes but instead got that fantastic Kiyoko time. Loved it.
