Thank you for the last 8 years, Haikyuu!

Fans have taken to Twitter to give a warm and emotional send-off to Haikyuu. With the hashtag #ThankYouHaikyuu, Twitter users expressed their thanks to their favorite sports manga and to Haruichi Furudate, the creator, who issued the 402nd and last chapter of the manga today, July 20– eight years after it first serialized in 2012.

Haikyuu became the fourth series in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine to have ended this year. Koyoharu Gotouge’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu’s The Promised Neverland, and Tadahiro Miura’s Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs have already concluded their stellar runs.

The final chapter picks up after another time jump in the year 2021. For the benefit of those who haven’t read it, we’re not gonna give you major spoilers. But it does provide a beautiful ending to our favorite characters– too beautiful that we couldn’t help but shed a tear.

The good news?

We might be saying goodbye to the manga, but the anime lives on. In fact, the final half of the fourth season of Haikyuu!! To The Top has been confirmed to launch this October. Plus, whether or not we’re gonna be seeing a fifth season, we have yet to find out. But considering how much there is still left to cover in the anime, it seems like Hinata Shoyo and Kageyama Tobio would be sticking around for a while longer.

You can actually catch up with the manga on Shonen Jump. The anime can also be streamed on Netflix.
