The latest combined 33rd and 34th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shounen JUMP Magazine has just released the final chapter of Haruichi Furudate's sports manga series "Haikyuu!!" today. The series' Chapter 402, the final chapter, was made in a 28-page merger issue with a fully-colored spread in the WSJ Magazine.

This marks the end of the series' 8 years and a half run since its first serialization last February 20, 2012 until today, July 20, 2020. Last year, Furudate confirmed that the manga is in its final arc and just this month, it was announced that the series would reach the climax of its final arc on July 13, 2020.

The manga won the 61st Shogakukan Manga Award for best shōnen manga in 2016. As of May 2020, Haikyu!! had over 38 million copies in print.

An anime television series adaptation by Production I.G aired from April 2014 to September 2014, with 25 episodes. A second season aired from October 2015 to March 2016, with 25 episodes. A third season aired from October 2016 to December 2016, with 10 episodes. A fourth season was announced during the Jump Festa '19 and was planned for release in two cours, the first cour of 13 episodes aired from January to April 2020, and the second cour of 12 episodes which will premiere in October 2020.

Apart from the manga and TV anime adaptations, the series was also adapted into several films, a radio drama program, spin-off series, stage plays, OVAs and video games.

Thank you for a wonderful and action-packed journey Furudate-senpai. We know that this is not the end of the Haikyuu!! hype! For now, it's a farewell.. but soon we'll meet again. ❤
