"Master and Student" (Japanese: 師弟 (してい) Shitei) is the two hundred ninety-seventh chapter of the Haikyū!! series, written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 19th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2018 series.


Tsukishima restricts Nekoma's attack with a one touch, but Kuroo one ups him by managing a kill block on Karasuno's synchronized attack. Kuroo, who is said to be Tsukishima's teacher in blocking, starts to rile up Tsukishima by pointing out his failure to position his hands out front. Despite the provocation, Tsukishima remains calm and retorts that he has never thought that he could win by himself. Just then, Yamaguchi is subbed in as a pinch server.


Tsukishima's brother Akiteru rushes to join the rest of the Karasuno supporters after coming in late from work. He questions the other alumni about their work and finds out that they have planned ahead to take leave of absence.

Kuroo is ready to block Daichi off of an all-in synchronized attack.

Nekoma prepares for a first tempo synchronized attack. Tsukishima intently observes Kenma's toss and lands a one touch on Kai's spike. Hinata follows up with the first touch and joins in with the rest with their own synchronized attack. Kuroo is quick to deduce where the toss will go and manages a kill block on Daichi's spike. The Nekoma crowd celebrates Kuroo's block point while others respond with both frustration and amazement. The commentators point out that both schools use synchronized attacks but both sides have also put up strong blocks to thwart each other. Meanwhile, the players from Shinzen and Ubugawa are surprised to find Nekoma prioritizing their offense but quickly recognize that both teams are omnivorous in playing style.

Sugawara is amazed that Kuroo can keep up with their five-man attack on the first try, but Hinata remains unsurprised. Hinata is fully aware of Kuroo's capability and credits him as the teacher of Tsukishima's persistent blocks. On the court, Kuroo provokes Tsukishima by pointing out that his hands are positioned too high up, causing the ball to blow right through instead of being shut down completely. The match resumes as Asahi breaks through a two-man block from Nekoma only to have his spike cleanly received by Yaku. Nekoma then successfully counters with a spike from Fukunaga, allowing Nekoma to tie with Karasuno 4-4.

The commentators praise Kuroo for successfully restricting the course for the receivers. They recognize him as someone who, despite not being an incredibly outstanding player, is key to his team's high caliber defense. Eventually, Hinata rotates in. He attempts to score but is forced to spike toward Fukunaga's direction when Kuroo limits his course. In the audience, Daishō is quick to notice that Nekoma is overperforming. He says that Nekoma is a team that falls behind early on as they analyze the opponents before steadily catching up in the second half, but that they are currently keeping up with a high artillery team like Karasuno.

Tsukishima has never thought he could win alone.

After a few more back-and-forth plays, Hinata manages to score. As Tsukishima rotates in to the front row, Sugawara passionately urges him to not to lose to Kuroo. In response, Tsukishima calmly says that he would never be able to overcome Kuroo's superior abilities alone. At the same time, Yamaguchi is switched in as a pinch server.
