Volume 45 will launch alongside a guidebook, followed by the first large-format collection
Last week, we posted about the end date for Haruichi Furudate's Haikyu!! manga. It's hard to believe, but the saga officially comes to a close in the latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, which hits stands in Japan on July 20. The chapter is actually out now in Japan, and it just arrived in the English Jump! In just a few months beyond those final pages, the last collected volumes will be on shelves, as well.
Next up is the penultimate collection, volume 44, which will be released in Japan on August 4. Then, on November 4, the 45th and final volume will arrive along with the release of a guidebook. After that, the first large-format collection of Haikyu!! will be released in December.
The final chapter of Haikyu!! includes a total of 19 people writing comments and providing illustrations, from anime cast members like Ayumu Murase (Shoyo Hinata) to Haikyu!! To the Top director Masako Sato.
Haikyu!! has been running in the pages of Jump since 2011, and has since been collected in 43 volumes so far. The second half of Haikyu!! To the Top—the latest season of the anime adaptation—is scheduled for an October premiere.
Here's how Crunchyroll describes the series:
Based off of the original Weekly Shonen Jump manga series from Haruichi Furudate, Haikyu!! is a slice-of-life sports anime revolving around Shoyo Hinata’s love of volleyball. Inspired by a small-statured pro volleyball player, Hinata creates a volleyball team in his last year of middle school. Unfortunately the team is matched up against the "King of the Court" Tobio Kageyama’s team in their first tournament and inevitably lose. After the crushing defeat, Hinata vows to surpass Kageyama After entering high school, Hinata joins the volleyball team only to find that Tobio has also joined.
