"A Man I Dislike" (Japanese: (いや) (おとこ) Iyana Otoko) is the one hundred seventy-ninth chapter of the Haikyu!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 48th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2015 series.


Sugawara promises to do more group attacks after Tendō blocked their last one. Hinata returns to the game. He saves a ball with his cheeks since using his hands would have been too late. He notes that he intentionally used his cheeks - and not his face - to avoid being benched. After remembering Oikawa's warning, Ushijima concludes that there is something about Hinata that bothers him, and that this discomfort leads to a desire of crushing him. With a score of 8-6 in Shiratorizawa's favor, Kageyama prepares to return to the game.

Trivia Edit

  • In commemoration of the second anime season, a center color page of Yachi dressed like a witch on a broomstick, a Frankestein-Asahi, a zombie-Shimizu with a severed right hand, Kageyama in a vampire costume, Saeko as a cat-woman, and Hinata dressed like a ghost. The text reads: "Trick of Volleyball!!"
  • There is an error on the top first panel of page 6. In order from right to left, Karasuno's side has Narita, Sugawara, Hinata, and a player with jersey number 3. Although there is a noticeable bun, the hair color is not Asahi's. In fact, the previous and proceeding panels clearly show that it is Tanaka that is on the immediate back left-side of Hinata. Furthermore, it also shows Asahi attacking from the far end of the court. As such, the player on the top first panel of page 6 should have jersey number 5.
  • In the official English manga release this chapter is called "I Hate Him."[1]
