Haikyū!! Wiki

"If I Wasn't Alone..." (Japanese: (ひと) りではないのなら Hitori de wa Nai no Nara) is the three hundred sixty-fourth chapter of the Haikyū!! series, written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 41st issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2019 series.

Overview

Kamomedai and Karasuno engage in a long rally with both teams giving their utmost efforts. With a strong desire to remain on the court, Hinata fights along with his teammates to snatch a hard-earned break point. Just when it seems like Karasuno's high on momentum, Hinata falls.

Plot

Hinata is elated at the prospect of facing strong opponents. However, his mood quickly dampens once he realizes that he is now in the back row and will be eventually switched out with Yamaguchi for serves. An ephiphany strikes, and he grows determined to score break points in order to remain on the court.

Hinata's serve hits the net and results in a chance ball for Karasuno. With not enough preparation time for both teams, Kageyama tries a dump shot only to be stopped by Kamomedai's triple block. The stray ball unexpectedly flies into Daichi's foot. Daichi, who is in the midst of approaching for a back row attack, reacts instantly and kicks the ball back to Kamomedai. Everybody is surprised by Daichi's aggressiveness, but Daichi, as the captain of a highly offensive team, refuses to lose to Hinata.

Tsukishima lands a touch on Nozawa's spike, and Hinata follows up. A fired-up Tsukishima secures the appropriate run-up distance and faces Kamomedai's three blockers head on with a spike right over the middle. However, before the ball hits the floor, Hoshiumi skillfully saves the ball and receives applause from Nishinoya and Yaku. Gao overwhelms Karasuno blockers with his superior height, but Hinata makes a crucial save that not only impresses his teammates but also Fuki Hibarida, the All-Japan Boys' Representative Team coach. Hinata wastes no time and uses his improved jump for a Back Minus. The rest of the team joins in just as eager to score. Hinata thinks to himself that he is truly not alone anymore.

Hinata scores and earns the desired break point that allows him to stay on the court. All of Karasuno's supporters cheer as Karasuno retake the lead 14 - 13. When Tanaka stretches his hand out to help pull Hinata up, Hinata unexpectedly misses his hand and falls to the floor to the surprise of his coach and teammates.
