"Confrontation with a Champion" (Japanese: 王者 (おうしゃ) 対峙 (たいじ) Ōsha to Taiji) is the seventy-seventh chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 42nd issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2013 series.

Overview Edit

Upon meeting Ushijima in the street, Hinata and Kageyama follow him to Shiratorizawa Academy. Hinata is amazed at the school's facilities as they make their way to the gym. Kageyama introduces himself to Ushijima, and is surprised that Ushijima knows of him. Kageyama tells the latter that he failed to get into the school, which Ushijima isn’t surprised about, as he had seen him play egoistically during middle school. Ushijima then goes on to talk about Oikawa, before a ball comes flying out the gym towards them. Ushijima attempts to catch the ball, but Hinata jumps up and catches the ball first, shocking the former. With a determined look at his face, Hinata states that they would be the ones to take Shiratorizawa down and go to the Nationals.
