Haikyū!! Wiki

"Those Who Lost" (Japanese: 敗北者達 (はいぼくしゃたち) Haibokusha-tachi) is the one hundred twenty-fifth chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 42nd issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2014 series.


Karasuno has won the third set and the match against Wakutani Minami. Meanwhile, the match between Aoba Johsai and Date Tech has reached the second set and the winner will be who Karasuno faces next.


Hinata and Kageyama perform the super quick. Kawatabi attempts to make the receive but is unable to and the ball goes out. Karasuno has won the third set and the match.

As the teams are leaving the court, Hinata acknowledges that Nakashima was more like the Little Giant than he was. Kageyama quickly states that Nakashima is vastly ahead of Hinata when it comes to aerial combat and the two begin to fighting again. Both sides thank their supporters. As Karasuno is starting to leave the gym, they observe part of the match between Aoba Johsai and Date Tech.

They watch as Futakuchi receives Oikawa's serve. The ball goes over the net and Kindaichi attempts to do a direct spike but is blocked by Aone. Ukai points out that Aoba Johsai is still at the height of power since their third years stayed on the team and that Date Tech has basically been a new team since the Interhigh preliminaries, after their third years retired and the second years took leadership of the team. But he sees that Date Tech is managing to put up a decent fight, especially with a new large rookie in the line-up.

Tanaka suddenly spots Daichi at the gym doors with Yachi. The captain is warmly welcomed back and assures them that the medication he was given and the rest he got has allowed him to recover well. He quickly ushers the team out of the gym to rest after having played full sets but stays back to speak with Ennoshita.

Daichi admits that he had returned to the game around the time Karasuno made it to the twenty point mark. He confesses that he had originally wanted to get back to the game as soon as possible but once he saw how Ennoshita was playing he did not want to interrupt the rhythm the team had gotten into for fear of messing things up. Daichi congratulates Ennoshita's remarkable save at the end of the game and tells him he did a great job before joining the others.

Ennoshita tells Narita and Kinoshita to join the others before going off on his own. The two second years notice that Ennoshita seems depressed despite the fact that they won. In the bathroom, Ennoshita puts himself down for all the missed spikes and receives he did. While knowing he fought to the end, he wonders why he suddenly feels relieved.

The first years are making their way to the stands when Yachi notices that Yamaguchi seems upset. The pinch server excused himself from the group and leaves. Outside the gym, Kawatabi finds Nakashima. The third year reveals that the last play felt like it was moving in slow motion. He says that he noticed Hinata read that he would attempt a block-out and tried to prevent it. Nakashima says he had never seen someone do that before and it gave him chills before he tearfully wishes that he could play volleyball one last time.

As Karasuno watches the second set between Date Tech and Aoba Johsai, they wonder which team they will be facing next.
