Taking Advantage of Confusion

"Awkward" (Japanese: ぎくしゃく Gikushaku) is the two hundred and twenty-fifth chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 45th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2016 series.

 Overview Edit

Kageyama recognizes that he is not good at understanding people's feelings and has a habit of making poor word choices but he promises to be the best setter there is. Coach Ukai also gives Kageyama advice on being able to get a good grasp on the situation of the overall match and the condition of the players. The practice match against Date Tech continues into the fourth set and Karasuno finally seems to be catching up. Kageyama is working on syncing up with Tsukishima, testing how high he can jump and also testing the limits of his teammates. Futakuchi notices that Karasuno seems to be off their game and takes advantage of the moment. Coach Ukai realizes that Date Tech will probably be the most threatening team next year.
