"Karasuno High School Volleyball Club" (Japanese: 烏野 (からすの) 高校 (こうこう) 排球部 (はいきゅうぶ) Karasuno Kōkō Haikyū-bu) is the second chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 13th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2012 series.


Kageyama and Hinata start arguing right away despite the efforts of the third and second years to stop them. It eventually leads to trouble with the Vice Principal and having enough, the Captain of the club kicks the two first years out.


Kageyama is just as shocked as Hinata is, and the latter introduces himself, expecting Kageyama to have forgotten about him already but to his surprise, the setter remembers, although for the wrong reasons. They start arguing after Kageyama insults Hinata about his lack of skills, though he does admit in his mind that Hinata has all the right traits as a player. They are soon interrupted by the arrival of the Karasuno High regulars, Daichi, Sugawara, and Tanaka.

During the introductions, Hinata vows to become the new ace which causes Kageyama to insult him again and bring up last year, starting another fight that leads to a volleyball game between the two. As Daichi tries to get them to stop, the vice principal comes to check out the ruckus, but Hinata and Kageyama pay him no mind. Hinata challenges Kageyama to serve to him, but he realizes that he isn’t able to receive them properly because they are too strong and fast. However, he does succeed somewhat on his second try, but the ball bounces off him and hits the vice principal in the face, knocking off his wig in the process.

After talking to the vice principal, Daichi returns with the good news of the former deciding not to take any major action, but he has to get something straight with the two first years. He states that Karasuno had been strong in the past but was called “The Flightless Crows” and "Fallen Champions" now, but he intends on bringing back their former glory. Hinata becomes inspired by his speech and imagines playing in the big stadium one day, but Daichi shuts him down by saying “we do not need players that fight among themselves.” He then throws Hinata and Kageyama out along with their registration papers, shocking the both of them.
