"Ground Warfare" (Japanese: 地上戦 (ちじょうせん) Chijō-Sen) is the one hundred and third chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 18th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2014 series.

OverviewEdit

Kakugawa covers Hyakuzawa so that he can focuses solely on attacking. Karasuno is initially overwhelmed by the 201 cm player, but they quickly adapt and find a way to counter Hyakuzawa's spikes.

PlotEdit

After watching Hyakuzawa play, the elder Ukai acknowledges that height and strength are factors that can dominate all others and make an athlete untouchable if challenged head on. Komaki instructs Hyakuzawa to track the ball instead of following Hinata's movements when blocking. Kakugawa blockers deflect Tanaka's spike, causing the ball to fly straight up. Hinata and Hyakuzawa jostle over the net, but Hyakuzawa easily wins due to his advantageous height. Others start to feel sorry for Hinata having to face such a tall opponent, but Komaki believes that Karasuno matched them up on purpose. Nevertheless, Komaki is confident that no amount of effort from Hinata will overcome Hyakuzawa's height.

The bystanders begin labeling Kakugawa as a one-man team. Despite some slight annoyance, the team is dedicated to keeping the ball alive and trusting Hyakuzawa to score for them. Karasuno calls a time out as they trail 1 - 4. Kakugawa reaffirms that they do not mind being called a one-man team since that's how they win. Feeling unchallenged, Hyakuzawa expresses some sympathy toward Hinata and concludes that volleyball is very simple. Meanwhile, Nishinoya reminds a worried Hinata that volleyball is more than just aerial battles.

The match resumes. Komaki tosses to Hyakuzawa once again, but this time, Karasuno is prepared. During the timeout, Daichi and Nishinoya realize that Hyakuzawa is unable to hit anything other than a cross. Karasuno shifts all their blockers to cover the cross and directs it toward Nishinoya. Kageyama tosses to Hinata, who jumps sideways but barely spikes it over Hyakuzawa's block. Karasuno now has a defense in place against Kakugawa but has yet to break though offensively. Kageyama asks Daichi for permission to use their new quick, and Hinata immediately grows excited. After Nishinoya receives the next spike, the oddball combo unleashes their signature quick and scores before Kakugawa can react.
