The View From the Top (Japanese: 頂の景色 Itadaki no Keshiki) is the eighth chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate, published weekly in the magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump appeared in Issue 19 in 2012.



Kageyama tells Hinata to jump as fast and high as he can wherever there’s no blockers, and Kageyama will get the ball to him. Hinata doesn’t have to see the toss to hit it, and Hinata shows doubt about the idea, but Kageyama told him that they’re going to try. Kageyama thinks back to Suga’s words and calms down, gaining full concentration on the game. Taking everything that’s part of the game in, Kageyama then finds the perfect angle and time and tosses to Hinata who spikes with all his strength. It hits the floor on the other side, shocking everyone because of the speed, but what was most shocking was the fact that Hinata had his eyes closed. Kageyama tells Hinata that they would try again, but they miss the next time, though Kageyama finds himself smiling due to how fun he thinks it is. Hinata then thinks over the feeling of the ball hitting his hand and how much he loves the feeling. The next play, Hinata runs to one side, tricking Tsukishima and Yamaguchi into blocking on that side, but he then runs to the other side with his eyes closed until he gets to the top where he spikes Kageyama’s toss. He looks to the other side of the net where Daichi is seen running towards the ball, but he ultimately misses it, and Kageyama and Hinata then stand next to each other with Hinata examining his hands first and then both yelling in success.
