"The Wind Rises" (Japanese: (かぜ) をつくる Kaze wo Tsukuru) is the two hundred and third chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 21st-22nd double issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2016 series.

Overview Edit

Nohebi takes the first timeout of the second set after Yamamoto's spike. They remain positive, deciding to focus on targeting on Nekoma's ace as well as Lev, whose blocks are less certain than the other members of his team. The opponents were right; even Nekoma acknowledges that Lev hasn't reached his full potential yet, but as a team they will not fall because of that. Numai is subbed in even though his thumb was dislocated earlier on. They manage to score a point for Nohebi, by means of his teammates blocking the referee's field of vision. In order to disrupt their opponent's momentum, Nekoma takes the second timeout of the set. The score is now at 21-20, with Nohebi in the lead.
