Nyoijizai’s Harukana Receive manga launched in the pages of Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Forward in August 2015. The series spans four collected volumes, with the most recent shipping to retailers on September 12. Seven Seas currently holds the license for the title in the west, and intends to release the first volume in September 2018.
Seven Seas describes the title as:
When high schooler Haruka moves to Okinawa, she finds herself enamored with the beach right outside her front door and resolves to form a volleyball team with her cousin, Kanata. However, because she’s so short, Kanata gave up on volleyball ages ago. Can Haruka get her to take up the sport again in time for the junior tournament?
