"The Game to Crown the New Little Giant" (Japanese: (ちい) さな巨人決定戦 (きょじん けってい-せん) Chīsana Kyojin Kettei-sen) is the three hundred and thirty-eighth chapter of the Haikyū!! series, written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 12th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2019 series.

OverviewEdit

Karasuno makes last minute preparations ahead of their match against Kamomedai. Hinata finally meets his idol, the Small Giant, when he unexpectedly shows up to support his alma mater at Nationals.

PlotEdit

Three hours prior to the Karasuno vs. Kamomedai match, the Karasuno support group is walking with the Nekoma sisters before a mysterious figure calls out to Akiteru. Saeko recognizes the figure immediately and is shocked by his presence. Meanwhile, Coach Ukai is briefing his players about Kamomedai. He warns the players to be cautious of not only Hoshiumi but also Kamomedai's blocking prowess, which is recognized as one of the best in the nation. After Ukai's serious talk, Daichi quickly energizes the team by reminding them that they are currently a top 8 team and will be playing on center court if they win the upcoming match.

During the down time ahead of the match, Kiyoko is surprised to find Kageyama diligently writing. Hinata explains to the managers that Kageyama is writing in his volleyball journal as part of his strict self-care routine. He then proceeds to openly admire Kageyama for his skills and hard work before proclaiming that he will one day defeat Kageyama. At the same time, Yamaguchi boldly declares to Tsukishima that they will overcome Kamomedai with their serve and block. Yamaguchi gets tongue-tied and messes up his line, giving the two friends a good laugh.

Later as Karasuno heads out to the court, Saeko suddenly calls out to Hinata informing him that the Small Giant is here. Hinata immediately rushes over to meet his idol and excitedly asks the Small Giant about his current volleyball activities. To everyone's surprise, the Small Giant reveals that he is no longer playing the sport due to having other priorities as well as not been invited to another team. After Hinata and the others leave, Saeko is worried if she has dampened Hinata's spirit. However, Hinata states to Kageyama that he is surprisingly not disappointed by this revelation.
