Haruichi Furudate’s Haikyu!! manga series is nearing its finale. This is because the manga’s official website has announced that it has already begun its final arc during this year’s 48th issue of Weekly Shounen Jump magazine. They also tweeted an image thanking everyone for their support until the end.
The announcement comes after the manga took a 1-week hiatus so that the mangaka could do some research. Meanwhile, Weekly Shounen Jump teased that the next arc would take the story to the other side of the world. As it turns out, that next arc also happens to be the manga’s final arc.
It should also be noted that this does not mean that the manga would be ending any time soon. Most final arcs for long-running manga tend to be quite long, often taking years to finish. But with Haikyuu!! now entering its final arc, it’s also possible that this arc would only run for a few months. Regardless, fans are now bracing themselves for their goodbyes to their favourite volleyball teams.
