"Critical Hit" (Japanese: 追い打ち Oiuchi) is the two hundred and fifty-third chapter of the Haikyū!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 24th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2017 series.

Overview Edit

The fierce battle between Karasuno and Inarizaki continues. Karasuno seems to be fighting well despite the fact that their opponents achieved 2nd Place at the Interhigh. It is Atsumu's turn to serve and he is called the dual wielder for being capable of doing a spike serve or a jump float serve. Based on the steps Atsumu takes, Nishinoya and the others are able to read what type of serve Atsumu will use, but he still manages to score with a lightning quick serve. The point gap increases. Nishinoya manages to receive the ball the second time and suddenly, Atsumu and Osamu pull off the freak quick that Hinata and Kageyama also use. The score is 11-7 with Inarizaki in the lead.
