Head-On Challenge (Japanese: () 向勝負 (こうしょうぶ) Makkō Shōbu) is the one hundred forty-seventh chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 14th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2015 series.


With both sides desperate to claim victory, each player is determined not to let the other score. As chaotic plays unfold, Hinata and Kageyama unleash the freak quick attack.


Tanaka makes a miraculous save and gets the ball into the air. Determined not to let Aoba Johsai take the win, Asahi spikes the ball from the back row in a similar manner to which Terushima had done in the match against Johzenji.

Though Watari is able to receive the ball, it goes directly into the net and looks like it will lands and give Karasuno the final point but Kyōtani is able to get the ball up before it can land.

Daichi calls for Kageyama to do a directly spike. The first year is able to but is blocked by Kindaichi. Sugawara is hit by the ball and Hinata calls for the set as he begins a running approach.

Oikawa readies himself for Kageyama's greatest weapon as Iwaizumi, Kindaichi, and Kyōtani prepare to block. As the three jump to block, Oikawa attempts to get into the correct position when Hinata hits the ball off Kindaichi's hand and the ball bounces off Oikawa's arm and lands out.

With the final point won, Karasuno celebrates their victory and Kageyama and Oikawa stare at one another through the net.
