Manga Review: Haikyu!!, Volume 20, by Haruichi Furudate

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Shonen Jump (VIZ Media)
Release Date: February 2018
Volumes: 31+
Spoilers?: Light.
Volume: 1. 19. 21.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Shoyo Hinata is out to prove that in volleyball you don't need to be tall to fly!

Ever since he saw the legendary player known as “the Little Giant” compete at the national volleyball finals, Shoyo Hinata has been aiming to be the best volleyball player ever! Who says you need to be tall to play volleyball when you can jump higher than anyone else?


Karasuno is going into the final round against Shiratorizawa. They're giving it their all, still throwing some new moves in and trying to throw each other off. It's getting very intense.
We get some insight into Ushijima's background during this volume, as well as the other characters' motivation. We see how Tsukishima calculates everything, and then he gets briefly hurt. Shoyo uses his face to deflect a ball at one point, and his competition with Ushijima grows more intense.
This whole volume was very intense and vigorous. They're fighting hard against each other, and trying not to give an inch.
This game will be going into the next volume, but probably not longer than that. I'm really excited to see how this one ends, because it's very close.

A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, for an honest review. Thank you so, so much!
