During the Jump Special Anime Festa event, which toured Japan last November 2015, a special event-only anime was screened for the fans attending the event. The latest issue #9 of Weekly Shounen Jump! magazine just announced that that very event anime will finally be released for the general audience.
-- Advertisment --
Titled “VS Akaten,” the 22-minute special episode will be coming bundled with the limited edition bundle version of Vol. 21 of the manga, which is scheduled for release in Japan on 2 May 2016. The limited edition bundle, which will come with the anime and the manga, will cost 2,980 yen, and pre-orders for the item are available until 28 February 2016.
It is actually the series’ second event-only anime, with the first one being released for Jump Festa 2014. Connected to Haikyuu!! season 2’s fourth episode, the event anime follows Hinata and Kageyama, who somehow failed a test and must take make-up exams. However, there is one problem as their training camp is on the same day as the make-up exams.
