The official Twitter account of Haikyuu recently confirmed that its manga would conclude on July 20 with the release of its chapter 402.
Earlier this year, some of the most popular manga series, The Promised Neverland, and Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba ended. Now, Haikyuu will join these two titles, and fans are certainly going to shed a tear.
Haikyuu recently entered its final arc
Not long ago, Haikyuu’s manga entered its final arc. This took place after its creator Haruichi Furudate went on a one-week hiatus. As soon as the last arc kicked off, fans were instantly shocked with a lot of big revelations.
Case in point, the manga has flung itself several years into the future for its finale. The members of the Karasuno Volleyball team have already graduated from high school in the final arc.
Some members went to college, and the others decided to go for higher education. Meanwhile, Shouyou Hinata and Tobio Kageyama, have both pursued their volleyball career.
