"Preparation" (Japanese: 準備 (じゅんび) Junbi) is the two hundred and seventh chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 26th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2016 series.

 Overview Edit

Karasuno is in the midst of preparing for the upcoming Spring Interhigh. The team takes measurement for the tournament pamphlet before Takeda arrives to announce that Kageyama has been invited to an All-Japan Youth Training Camp.

Plot Edit

One day mid-November, the Karasuno boys' volleyball club members just finished morning practice and are heading out to class. An old friend greets Hinata on the way and walks along side him. The friends pauses when he sees the huge sign on the school building congratulating the volleyball team on qualifying for nationals. He mentions that he is surprised but not incredulous at the result as he recalls Hinata's perseverance during middle school. Just then, Kiyoko calls out to Hinata to let him know they will be taking measurements for the tournament pamphlet later and asks him to let the other first years know. Kageyama approaches Hinata to challenges him to a vertical reach competition. Hinata gladly accepts as the freak duo begins their usual bickering.

Karasuno's updated statistics.

At Karasuno Café and Shimada Mart, Saeko and Shimada are helping to fundraise for the team's traveling cost to nationals. Takinoue and Coach Ukai are also calling up old team alums to ask for donations. Back in the staff room at school, Takeda receives a call and is given a shocking news.

After school is over, the volleyball team takes their height and vertical reach measurement. The team is surprised to find Hinata's vertical reach significantly increased from before. Nishinoya concludes it's due to Hinata always prioritize height in his jumps while believing that Kageyama will always bring the ball to him. Just after they finish the measurements, Takeda enters the gym to announce that Kageyama has been invited to the All-Japan Youth Training Camp.
