"The Strongest Ally 2" (Japanese: 最強 (さいきょう) 味方 (みかた) ・2 Saikyō no Mikata 2) is the three hundred and fourteenth chapter of the Haikyū!! series, written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 38th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2018 series.

OverviewEdit

Kageyama is determined to fulfill his role as a setter and open a path for Hinata. To the surprise of everybody, he sets a high toss for a third tempo open attack, prompting Hinata to respond with his newly improved jump. 

PlotEdit

Having realized the full extent of Nekoma's plan, Kageyama ponders over the decision to make a risky play. Although Hinata being restricted isn't fatal, Karasuno is gradually losing ground as the match progresses. Kageyama recalls Coach Ukai's words telling him to take into account of players' conditions and questions if Hinata is still usable. However, his doubts are quickly dispelled when he sees Hinata working hard to open a path for himself in addition to being forced to receive.

With Nekoma now leading 22-21, Kageyama is determined to fulfill his role as a setter and help his spikers break through. Fukunaga serves and lands a lucky net in that throws off Karasuno's formation. Tanaka saves the ball in the nick of time while Hinata hurriedly moves to prepare for a quick. To everybody's surprise, Kageyama suddenly calls for a third-tempo open attack and sets a high toss at the center of the court. Hinata is absolutely delighted to be given a high toss and immediately secures distance for a proper run-up. He remembers Kageyama teaching him how to jump higher and seeing Hoshiumi in action. Hinata channels the momentum into the balls of his feet and successfully perfects his improved jump as he prepares to spike the high toss.
