The Promise of the Trash Heap

"The End of the Clash of Ages" (Japanese: (まつり) () わり Matsuri no Owari) is the three hundred and twenty-fourth chapter of the Haikyū!! series, written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 48th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2018 series.


The winner is finally decided after a slip up. Kenma admits that he enjoys playing volleyball and thanks Kuroo for introducing him to the sport.


With Karasuno at match point, Kenma shouts at Lev to not divert his attention elsewhere and focus on the ball. Karasuno reaches the falling ball just before it hits the floor and returns it back to Nekoma. The ball drops toward the front of the court, and Yaku puts it back in the air. The ball flies right above the net, where Hinata is already prepared to slam it down. However, Lev reacts just in time to block Hinata's spike. At this moment, the two teams' formation are broken but they try their hardest to keep the rally going. Eventually, Karasuno gets a chance ball. Kageyama entrusts the ball to Tanaka, who uses his newly learnt super straight line shot. His spike bypasses the blockers but Kai makes a clean receive to give Nekoma an opportunity to counterattack. Just when Kenma prepares to set, the ball slips away from his fingers due to being covered in sweat. The ball drops to the floor, thereby ending the match in favor of Karasuno once and for all. 

Initially, both sides seem not to have registered that the match is already over. Once it sinks in, the Nekoma and Karasuno players drop to the floor in both relief and exhaustion. As he lies on the floor, Kenma admits that he had fun during this match and thanks Kuroo for getting him into volleyball.
