The chapter will also receive a center color page.

The Haikyu!! manga had one of the most uplifting endings. It showed a time skip straight to the Karasuno team’s post-graduation situation. Hinata and Kageyama were seen as teammates at the Olympics.

A year later, they played on opposing teams in the World Championship. Our boys have been doing great, to say the least.

After the manga had ended in 2020, Furudate-sensei had released a few extra pages where Hinata, Kageyama, Kindaichi, and Kunimi could be seen having a beach volleyball session.

Will the upcoming one-shot have an extra fluffy plot like the extra, or will we get another shot of adrenaline through a competitive game? My bet is that it will be a chapter where we can see all the main characters interacting one last time.
