The State of the ACE (Japanese: 「エース」のカタチ [Ēsu] no Katachi) is the ninety-fifth chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 10th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2014 series.

Overview Edit

It's the climax of the match against Karasuno and Fukurodani, and the latter team's ace, Bokuto, doesn't seem to be doing well. His consecutive mistakes cause him to submit to his "dejected mode" which the rest of Fukurodani most likely avoid to happen in matches. With the current situation, Karasuno starts to take the advantage. Will they succeed?
