Tanaka: ...what sort've guy was it?
Shou: It was kinda...
Shou: a kid...
Shou: Could it...

(Shou): A bright red jersey... I haven't seen one like that around here before.
Shou: What're you doing~?
Boy: .....got lost...?
Shou: Eh? You came here from a different part of Japan??
sfx bubble: ♪Beep Boop
Shou: Is that fun??
Boy: Er umm... this... not really...
sfx bubble: Badoop ♪
Boy: It's just a way to kill time...
Shou: You play volleyball?!
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.
Shou: ? Kozume? Is that your name??
Boy: Kozume... Kenma...
Shou: So your name's Kenma! Are you in high school?!
Shou: What year?! I'm a 1st year!
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...
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
Shou: By the way, I'm a middle blocker!!!
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...
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,
Kenma: I think we're strong.
Shou: ......which school....
Shou: Do you-
Kenma: It's Kuro.
Kenma: Until next time
Kuro: Don't go wandering wherever you like.
Shou: ..."Next time"...?
(above Shou) Dazed
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.
Boy: Nekoma High School, was it?
Nekoma High School 2nd year
