sfx bubble: ♪Beep Boop

sfx bubble: Badoop ♪

[p013]

Boy: It's just a way to kill time...

Shou: Hmmm...
Boy: Yeah...

Shou: ...ah!

Shou: You play volleyball?!
Boy: Geh?!

Shou: Those shoes!! They're for volleyball, aren't they?!
Boy: Ah... yeah...

Shou: I'm in a volleyball club too!!
Shou: I'm Hinata Shouyou.

Boy: .....................Kozume...
Shou: ? Kozume? Is that your name??

Boy: Kozume... Kenma...

[p014]

Shou: So your name's Kenma! Are you in high school?!
Kenma: Yeah.
Shou: What year?! I'm a 1st year!
Kenma: ......second...

Shou: Crap, you're an upperclassman!! I'm sorry!!

Kenma: It's fine... stuff like that...
Kenma: That sort of sports hierarchy...
Kenma: I don't like it...

Shou: Ah... is that... so...

Shou: Umm... do you like volleyball?
Kenma: Hrmm... not really... I play anyway... I don't dislike it, but...
Kenma: I don't like... getting worn out or any of that...

Kenma: Still... my fr... friends play...
Kenma: and they'd probably have a hard time without me...
Shou: Hmm... I think you'd have more fun if you came to like it, though.
Kenma: It's fine...
Kenma: I'm just going to play during high school, anyway...

Shou: What position are you??
Kenma: Hrmm... Setter...

[p015]

Shou: Really?! You're kinda completely different from our setter! Ours is a guy that gives off more of a "GRRRR" feeling!
(above Shou) GRRRR
Kenma: Hrmm...

Shou: By the way, I'm a middle blocker!!!
Kenma: Huh...

Shou: It's really weird, don't you think?
Shou: Middle blocker is a position played by tall guys, after all.

Kenma: Yeah... well, that's true, but...
Kenma: Not really.

Kenma: When I go to games, they say that a lot about me, too.
Kenma: The setter is a position for people with the highest level of ability, so why is this guy in that spot? and stuff like that.
Kenma: Sports aren't particularly my forte, either...
おれ特別運動得意とかじゃないし...

Shou: Huuh...
Shou: Hey! Is your school strong?!
Kenma: Hmm, I wonder.
Kenma: Apparently they were strong in the past, but they went into decline at one point...
Kenma: Still, lately,

[p016]

Kenma: I think we're strong.

Shou: ......which school....
Shou: Do you-

Boy: Kenma!

Kenma: Ah.

Kenma: It's Kuro.
Shou: Ah.
Kenma: Well...

[p017]

Kenma: Until next time, Shouyou.

Kuro: Don't go wandering wherever you like.
Kenma: Sorry.

Shou: ..."Next time"...?

(above Shou) Dazed

Shou: Crap!
Shou: I was in the middle of a run!!!

Box: Tsukinokizawa High School First Gymnasium

Boy: Amazing, for them to come all the way from Tokyo.
Boy: Isn't the other team's setter kinda short?
Boy: Yeah... and he's kinda unsteady on his feet.
Boy: Don't they have a reserve setter?
Boy: Think they're strong? I've never heard of their high school before.

[p018]

Boy: Nekoma High School, was it?
