The 16th issue of Weekly Shounen Jump of 2016, which will go on sale on March 19, has announced a third anime adaptation of the Haikyuu!! volleyball manga.

The manga by Haruichi Furudate was first adapted into a TV anime that ran for 25 episodes in 2014. That series was summarized in two compilation movies last year. A second season has been airing since October and will end on March 27.

The series recently won the 64th Shougakukan Manga Award for shounen manga.

Anyone knows how many chapters are out and how many did the second season cover? I think the anime might catch up soon to the manga, so 3rd season is probably gonna be 1-cour or?

But it will be only this one match ? I would like seeing Nationals so much.. Because I've never seen such thing amongst all sports anime i watched.

Well , Kuroko's Winter cup could be called so.. but still. :/

That is worrying. Let's hope not though, since it is the finale and all.


So, season 3 is the last we got? There won't be any continuation beyond that?


Whoops my mistake. That's probably wrong -.-

I'm actually a little apprehensive that hq is getting a new season so fast when other shows don't fare as well :( still, I'm stoked for another season of quality sports
