Season 4, Episode 19, titled "The Ultimate Challenger," will see the Miya brothers in action against Hinata, Kageyama and other Karasuno High players.

The official synopsis for "Haikyuu!!" Season 4, Episode 19, hints one of the players from Karasuno High struggling to counter Atsumu and Osamu's perfect attacks. As the match enters its second set, the Miya brothers target Nishinoya. Can Hinata, Kageyama and others rally around their teammate and counter the attacks?

Meanwhile, Nekoma High emerge as winners in a nail-biting match against Sarukawa Tech High. "Haikyuu!!" Season 4, Episode 18, which is titled "Trap," shows Sarukawa Tech High's plan to crush the opponent's setter – Kenma.

The second set of the match witnesses Sarukawa Tech High take a lead against their opposing team. Coach Nekomata notes that Sarukawa Tech High are targeting the ball at difficult places and deliberately holding back in an attempt to beat Kenma.

The plan is to exhaust Kenma and crush Nekoma High. Sarukawa Tech High are aware of Kenma's low stamina weakness and they wish to use it against the team.
