Chapter 12 arrives: http://www.mangareader.net/haikyu/12
I honestly fell in love with this series early on (like I'd be translating it otherwise!), and it never fails to make me smile. This is coming from someone who generally doesn't read sports manga, which probably says a lot. I'm not sure if the Japanese audience likes it for the same reasons I do, but I hope it gets a nice, long run. Even though I'm still working to catch up to the raws... @_@ But I'm only 3 chapters behind, now! Granted, the scanlations are more like... 6 chapters behind, but...
The scan of chapter 13 arrives: http://www.mangareader.net/haikyu/13
In this last chapter one can really see how the peculiar art is a plus to the serie.
But now that they have won against one of the best team, I guess the time of defeat will come...
Really interesting choice by Furudate to introduce the Grand King and then have Hinata show him up by gaining the last point before t Oikawa could turn the game around, I really enjoyed it. Also the action scenes at the end were amazing looking.
Indeed. I'll be looking forward to the rematch between Hinata/Kagayama vs Oikawa in the tournament whenever it'll be. Furudate's art is looking better and clearer, and while I was originally unsure of whether the art would work for this series (although I didn't have a problem with it), it's proved to be very fitting.

Who wagers that the "Guardian Diety" will be able to dart around and intercept any serve, allowing the entire team to be more offensive? We'll say goodbye to Enoshita, the wing spiker, who never did anything. Doesn't the normal setter also need to get into the team though? That seems to leave us with an extra player, I think.
What chapter are the raws up to these days?
He isn't tall and let the libero be a position for smaller people. You also have to get the context. The grand king has a great serve but the team didn't have the player to defend such a serve. A libero is very defensive and thus their small length allows them to get close to the ground. The guy looks cool
This week is chapter 20, so we're... not that far behind? I'm about 25% done translating chapter 17, too.
Yeah, that's only five chapters behind, so not bad at all. I had thought more chapters had occurred given the description you'd provided.
Good luck with your tls.
Can you put your spoiler in spoiler tags please. Not everyone wants to know what happen next.
