"The Promise of the Trash Heap" (Japanese: ゴミ () () 約束 (やくそく) Gomisuteba no Yakusoku) is the three hundred and twenty-fifth chapter of the Haikyū!! series, written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 49th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2018 series.

OverviewEdit

With the winner decided, Karasuno and Nekoma finally fulfill the long time promise of Ukai and Nekomata to have a Battle of the Trash Heap. The two teams warmly greet each other afterwards as both rivals and friends before moving on to observe Fukurōdani's current match.

PlotEdit

To the surprise of his teammates, Kenma thanks Kuroo for getting him into volleyball. Afterwards, Nekoma and Karasuno line up to perform post-match greetings and handshakes. Daichi crosses under the net to give Kuroo a hug, and the others follow suit. Between Nekoma and Karasuno, there's a mixture of congratulatory happiness and sadness over losing but most importantly a heightened mutual respect for the other team. As Coach Ukai prepares to shake hands with Nekomata, Ikkei Ukai, in his hospital room, extends his hand out toward the TV as if he's one engaged in the handshake. The two coaches finally fulfill their long time promise to have the Battle of the Trash Heap at the national stage.

Later, Nekomata praises his team for their efforts and proceeds to thank them for playing an exciting game. The players recall Nekomata's guidance and earnestly pay their respect to the elderly coach. While the two teams exit the court, Kageyama and Hinata call out to Kenma and arrange to have a rematch next year. It finally sinks in for the Nekoma third years that their high school volleball journey is over, but everything has not ended yet as everybody turns their attention to Fukurōdani's match.
