New 1-Shot Haikyu!! Manga Releases on February 5
The disclosure in the ninth issue this year of
Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on Monday is that
Haruichi Furudate will author a new one-shot for the
Haikyu!! manga. This one-shot is planned to be published in the magazine’s 10th issue, hitting newsstands on February 5 courtesy of
Shueisha. The impending
Gekijōban Haikyu!! Gomi Suteba no Kessen film will be celebrated with the 16-page chapter, which will feature a color splash page and narrate a “different perspective” on the clash between Karasuno High and Nekoma High.
In 2011, Furudate launched the original Haikyu!! manga with the series concluding in July 2020. Shueisha brought out the manga’s 45th and concluding volume in November 2020. Viz Media has disseminated the manga both in print form and digitally, publishing it in parallel with its Japanese debut in digital format. MANGA Plus has also distributed the manga in English in digital format.
Production I.G‘s inaugural television anime version of the manga broadcasted in April 2014. The anime’s sophomore season aired in October 2015, with the third installment premiering a year later in October 2016. In January 2020, the first part of the fourth season, Haikyu!! To The Top, aired, with the 13th episode following suit in April 2020. The second half of the season, constituted of episodes 14 through to 25, was initially set to air in July 2020, but was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, ultimately premiering in October 2020.
Gekijōban Haikyu!! Gomi Suteba no Kessen (Haikyu!! the Movie: Decisive Battle at the Garbage Dump), the debut movie in the two-part Haikyu!! Final follow-up movie initiative, is slated to hit cinemas in Japan on February 16.
Moviegoers in Japan will be gifted with an exclusive “volume 33.5” book when they attend screenings of the movie. Available in a limited run to two million moviegoers, this extra treat will include a fresh 16-page manga from the original creator Haruichi Furudate, character illustrations, the storyboard for chapter 322, as well as a Q&A session with Furudate.
The popular manga has also sparked off a series of stage plays, an animated short featuring clay figures, highlight reel anime movies, and an array of video anime.
