"Fresh" (Japanese: 新鮮 Shinsen) is the one hundred and seventy-sixth chapter of the Haikyu!! series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. It was published in the 45th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 2015 series.


In a flashback, Tendō asked Ushijima why he started playing volleyball. Ushijima explained that his father, a former pro volleyball player, taught him since he was young. His father instilled in him the continued need to grow as a player.

Back to the present, Karasuno takes advantage of their momentum but Shiratorizawa fights back; Ushijima shows why he is one of the country's best players. The game is tied 4-4.



  • Takashi Utsui (flashback only)
