"Why is it that Tanaka-senpai is so cool, but Still isn’t Popular with Girls?" (Japanese: 田中 (たなか) センパイはこんなにカッコイイのになぜモテないのか。 Tanaka-senpai wa Kon'nani Kakkoī Noni Nazemote Nai Noka?) is an extra chapter in Volume 22. The book was published on July 4, 2016.

Overview Edit

The Karasuno team debates why despite Tanaka's cool personality, none of the girls are interested in him.

Plot Edit

Hinata's starts a team debate on why Tanaka is not popular among girls even though he is so cool. Tanaka is flattered and casually asks Hinata to stop. Sugawara takes it seriously and halts the conversation, much to Tanaka's protest. The third years then begin listing all of Tanaka's positive traits, which include being upbeat, good at sports, patient toward his junior, and stylish.

Yamaguchi adds it's because Tanaka looks scary and earns a harsh glare from the latter. Ennoshita thinks Tanaka looks like he's always thinking of lewd things while Tsukishima says Tanaka seems like someone who always smells like sweat. Tanaka grows irritated by these claims until Kageyama calmly says that people simply aren't aware of how cool Tanaka is. The team is in awe of Kageyama saying something sensible and concludes that Tanaka might be popular ten years later.

Later, Saeko asks Ennoshita and Nishinoya if something happened since Tanaka has been usually attentive in his studies recently. Ennoshita reveals Tanaka aiming to make a time machine.
