Haikyū!! Wiki

"▷ Load Save" (Japanese: ▷つづきからはじめる ▷Tsuzuki kara Hajimeru) is the three hundred ninety-seventh chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 28th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2020 series.


Former rivalries are revived as the improved Hinata faces off against Hoshiumi and Ushijima directly. Having been inadequate in the past, Hinata is stepping up and making a strong stance against his opponents.


The intense match between the Adlers and Jackals continue with a serve from Atsumu. Hoshiumi receives it, and Romero spikes it over. Meian lands a touch, and the Jackals follow up with a synchronized attack. The Adlers return the favor with one of their own. Kageyama sets for Ushijima, who finishes the rally off with a powerful spike that bounces off of Atsumu's receive. With the score tied at 9 - 9, Kageyama sends a deadly serve aimed in-between Sakusa and Hinata. Despite the serve going out of bounds, Kageyama's prowess is clearly displayed. Bokuto serves next, Heiwajima receives, and Kageyama once again tosses to Ushijima. Meian struggles to block Ushijima's cannon-like spike and succeeds in pushing the ball back over to the Adlers' side. Hoshiumi immediately calls out for a toss, hoping to take advantage of the disarray on the Jackals' side. Kageyama responds with a long toss to the far back right of the court where Hoshiumi is waiting to spike. Just when it seems like the Jackals on has Sakusa to block, Hinata flies in to complete the double block and shuts down Hoshiumi's spike.

Afterward, Hoshiumi is frustrated at not being able to see Hinata coming in due to the latter's short stature. Hirugami remarks that volleyball is a sport that prioritizes looking up and Hoshiumi is the least accustomed to playing with someone smaller than him. Hinata and Hoshiumi stare down each other across the net as their unfinished rivalry from six years ago is rekindled. Meanwhile, Takeda wonders if Hinata picked up the tendency to cover every inch of the court by himself from his beach volleyball training. Ukai acknowledges Hinata's improved sense of positioning but discovers something else different about Hinata's play style.

The Adlers pick up Hinata's serve. While Kageyama prepares to set, Hinata recalls all his past attempts at receiving Ushijima's spike and being crushed by the overwhelming strength. This time, Hinata is determined to make it count as he readies himself to face Ushijima's spike once more.
