"Return" (Japanese: 返還 (へんかん) Henkan) is the two hundred and twenty-fourth chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 44th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2016 series.

 Overview Edit

Kageyama finally explodes on his teammates, but he recalls the incident from middle school and attempts to apologize. Instead of shunning him, the rest of Karasuno helps Kageyama accepts his "king" tendencies as well as teaching him how to properly communicate his thoughts.

Plot Edit

Kageyama is fully immersed in the practice match, but his focus is broken when his teammates continuously fail to score. After Karasuno loses the first set 19-25, Kageyama can't no longer contain his anger and shouts at his teammates to be more decisive. He immediately realizes that he has reverted to his demanding "Tyrant King" ways and attempts to apologize. Just then, Hinata interrupts and reveals that he will ignore what Kageyama is saying if he doesn't agree, regardless of Kageyama being a "king" or not.  Tanaka and the others add in that they are fine with criticism except when the tone of voice rubs them the wrong way. Coach Ukai tells Kageyama that it is okay to have disagreements and that communication is key to finding the best toss for the spiker. Suddenly, Kageyama grasps the meaning behind Atsumu calling him a "goody two-shoes" — he has been fully accommodating to the spiker's needs without any objections all this time. Asahi and Tanaka take this time to inform Kageyama that they are practicing new techniques and ask him to be understanding if they are blocked.  

After everything is settled, the second set begins. Kageyama purposely goads Tsukishima into jumping higher by refusing to match his toss to the latter; Tsukishima defiantly accepts the challenge.  Later, Tsukishima makes a full approach run and successfully reaches Kageyama's high toss. Even though the spike goes out of bounds and costs Karasuno the second set, Kageyama is delighted to see Tsukishima's improved jump. Hinata suddenly starts mimicking Kageyama's earlier proclamation about how cool setters are and insists that Kageyama accept his true nature as a "King." Hinata then crowns Kageyama with a folded towel while declaring that the new "King of the Court" is born.
