[Real 81 Translation by Kewl0210]
Nomiya: There are some people
that you just can't ever reach.
Guy: Hey, wait, Nomiya.
Guys: Are you giving up?
You're still in your teens, aren't you?
Your biggest weakness is lack of experience... But
in the tryout, you started to get used to the speed.
You've got plenty of room for growth.
It seems like such a waste for you to quit now.
Nomi: I figured out I have no hope of beating Anzai.
Guy: I don't think I could beat Anzai either.
Still, I'm gonna tryout again next time. Maybe even outside Tokyo.
I'll take every tryout for every other team.
Even if I'm a reserve, reserve, 3rd point guard,
there are still things I can do even if I don't get play time.
I know I've got a place somewhere.
And if there isn't I'll make one.
I'll do anything to do that.
That's what living as a pro means, doesn't it?
Hey, wait, I said!
I've changed my opinion from what I said before!
Looking at your posture-------
you're fat, but you're damn fast!
SFX: HAH HAH
Nomi: I was able to keep going this whole time thinking that no matter how far off it was,
right now I was in the process and the goal was somewhere up ahead--------
SFX: HAH HAH
Nomi: I could keep going because I thought that in the end I'd be the best point guard in Japan.
SFX: HAH HAH
Nomi: Now that I realize that that I can't make that goal, I...
feel like an important screw came loose.
Nomi: I don't feel like I could beat anybody anymore.
Guy: ...The best point guard in Japan?
Have you been putting in the work to match up with that?
I guess you're all talk.
You're just some kid that knows nothing about the real world.
Nomi: I heard that.
But it doesn't frustrate me.
That's how cleansed my personality is now.
Guy: I'm gonna win this time!!
Nomi: Thank you, Ugo.
Nomi: I was able to live because I had basketball.
Oh, looks like he's back.
That gross old man.
Gimme the ball!!
Sing: Put your soul into it!!
Narration: We've won best in Tokyo 8 years running.
But we've never made it past the top 8 at nationals.
Guy: This year's title will be the top 4.
Actually, let's go for champions.
We're coming right up on that now, so everyone's in a frenzy.
Nobu: It's okay...
Guy: You wanna touch the ball, right?
You have basketball experience, right?
I don't want to touch it yet.
What, not gonna go get it?
Guy: Okay, fine.
Last at least 3 months, okay?
It's gonna be tough, so don't drop out right away.
Guy: Don't worry about him.
Guy: Aoki-kun is the nastiest guy in Tokyo.
Nice to meet ya. I'm Daisuke.
I was kinda overwhelmed when I first came here, too.
Everybody's so damn good.
I mean, look how thick their arms are, right?
Daisuke: It's like that for everybody in the beginning.
Anyhow, do your best until you get used to it.
He's looking down on me...
Could you please not tell anyone I'm experienced at basketball?
Nobu: I know regular basketball is different from wheelchair basketball.
You even use your hands two run in wheelchair basketball.
Nobu: You do both the controlling of the chair
and the handling of the ball with your hands.
Don't slack off on your footwork!
That's the foundation for all movement in basketball!
Keep it tight!
Guy: Heey, run!!
You're taking too long to get back, defense!
Nobu: What I have to do first is...
Nobu: get the wheelchair to move the way I want it to.
Until then, it's okay if I don't touch the ball.
No, make sure you don't touch it.
And when I do start touching the ball-----
Nobu: I won't lose to any one of you.
