Chapter 27: The Cats and Crows Meet Again | Furudate Haruichi
Ukai: This lineup hasn't been playing together all that long,
Ukai: so I don't think it'll be that smooth and easy.
Ukai: Seems like there were all sorts of problems before I came here, too.
Ukai: ...Just because you've got a skilled libero now
Ukai: and your ace has returned
Ukai: doesn't automatically mean "alright, we can win this."
Ukai: The side who'll win
Ukai: is the one that works together.
Ukai: Regardless of how well you can compete using these members,
Ukai: this is a match between "the crows" and their old nemesis "the cats".
Ukai: You won't have another chance to show your gratitude at being able to "practice" for this "match".
Ukai: So thank your sensei for setting it up!
Takeda: Y-you don't have to do tha-
Players: THANK YOU!!
Noya: Suga-san aside, don't you think
Noya: you should "apologize to Ennoshita" and stuff?
Noya: We're not just pretending to be friends, y'know.
Noya: The strong are the ones who stand on the court!
Noya: That's only natural!!
Enno: Well, um...
Enno: It's not like I've been playing in earnest the whole time.
Enno: I ran away from it once too,
Noya: If you become stronger than the ace in both mind and body,
Noya: then you'll be able to snatch the regular spot from Asahi-san fair and square!!
Noya: Got it, Chikara?!
His first name is Chikara.
Enno: You don't have to go that far...
Noya: Oh, but the one who stole the regular spot from you before that was Ryu! Position-wise, that is!
(Tanaka sfx) Shock
Tanaka: F-fine by me! B-b-bring it on, Ennoshitaaa!!
Enno: Nishinoya, that's enough. I'm begging you, stop already.
Shou: Ahh~ Man, I'm full...
Shou: The 2nd years are setting things up.
Tobio: We'll do it.
Enno: We're fine, though...
Shou: ...Umm, Ennoshita-san,
Shou: I kinda overheard the conversation with Asahi-san and the rest earlier...
Enno: Are you talking about the "I ran away" bit?
Enno: ...you've heard
Enno: that there was a period of time last year when Coach Ukai returned, right?
(small text) The previous one, I mean.
Enno: That time... well... it's kind of a disgraceful story...
Enno: I don't know how many guys weren't able to keep up with the training and left...
Enno: Essentially, we were spoiled by having a kind captain,
Enno: and as "club activities which are themselves fun to do" became "club activities all for the sake of winning",
Enno: it was as if we had been doused with cold water. Surprised and afraid, we fled.
Enno: But when I realized that I still wanted to play volleyball after all and came back,
Enno: Coach Ukai was no longer there.
(Tobio): He collapsed?!
Boy: We don't have a lot of club members, so
Boy: I think Sawamura-san shrewdly turned a blind eye on us having returned.
Enno: We are disgraceful 2nd years, but...
Enno: Since we've returned, we think we'd like to work hard so we don't lose to you guys.
Enno: let's continue to get along!
Tobio: Why are you spacing out like that.
Shou: ...It's only natural, but
Shou: even if they can't play in this match,
Shou: intends to get on the court at some point.
Shou: Right now, the fact that I'm out on the court is due to your toss.
Shou: It's frustrating, but I'm sure I wouldn't be sent out there if I were on my own.
Tobio: Where're you going?!
Shou: The baths!!!
Shou: And then to bed!!
Shou: I'm gonna wake up even earlier tomorrow!!
Tobio: That little...
Tobio: Dammit!! You bastard!!
Tobio: You got a head start!!!
Kei: ...I can understand the early morning training bit, but
Kei: why are they even competing over who gets to the baths the fastest? Are they complete idiots?
Yama: I'm getting tired just watching them~
Daichi: HEY! Who the hell's running around!!
sfx bubble: Squeak
sfx bubble: Squeak
sfx bubble: Squeak
sfx bubble: Squeak
sfx bubble: Squeak
Ukai: No stopping!! And don't wave your arms around!!
Takeda: Ah! They're ready?!
Shimizu: They've been cleaned and patched up.
Shimizu: Here, the uniforms.
(on bag) Uchisawa Cleaning
Daichi: We didn't have them when we faced Aobajousai, after all.
Shou: That's what I saw on TV! It's what the "small giant" was wearing!!
Ukai: So these are the only things that haven't changed at all, huh. It'd be nice if they had a different style.
Takeda: Alright, we'll hand them out now.
Shou: Noya-san's is the only orange one!! It really stands out!!!
(Asahi): Nishinoya's wearing his already...
(Suga): Just when did he put it on...
Noya: That's 'cause I'm a star player, after all!
Shou: A star player!
Tobio: During a match, the libero goes on and off the court multiple times,
Tobio: so in order to make it easier to distinguish them from the rest, they have a different uniform. You moron.
Shou: I knew that! I definitely knew that!
(left of Tobio): What the heck are you looking at.
(Shou sfx) Stare
Box: Kageyama: #9
Box: Hinata: #10
Shou: K-Kageyama... has a single digit...
Kei/Tanaka: I knew he'd say that!!
Tobio: Be grateful you're even getting a uniform as a first year!
Shou: I-I knoooow.
Daichi: Oh, that's right. I guess you wouldn't remember his number, huh.
Suga: Well, you only saw him on TV once, after all.
Suga: When the "small giant" went to the nationals, his uniform number
Suga: was 10.
Announcer: He is truly a "small giant"!!
Karasuno High School is in the nationals!!!
Shou: D-did you pick it with that in mind, coach?!
Ukai: Nope, it's a coincidence.
Shou: Then it must be fate!!
Tobio: He already said it was just a coincidence.
Shou: Don't be jealous, Kageyama-kun.
Tobio: Why the hell would I be jealous!
(left of Shou) Don't worry about it.
Ukai: By the way,
Ukai: Hinata's idol, the "small giant", was at this school
Ukai: when Karasuno was at its strongest, but
Ukai: back then,
Ukai: they weren't able to win against Nekoma even once.
Ukai: They likely lost in their last game, too.
Ukai: That era ended up leaving in defeat.
Ukai: Go out there and clear our school's reputation.
(Announcer): truly a
Announcer: He is truly
Announcer: a "small giant"!!
Tobio: ...Oi, don't overwork yourself and throw up again.
Shou: I'm not gonna throw up!!

Box: Karasuno Sougou Sports Park, ball game grounds

Kenma: You didn't ask...

Shou: But you said "until next time" when you left!
Shou: So you must've known!!
Kenma: That was because "Karasuno High School" was written on your shirt.

Daichi/Kuro: Let's go.
[page 4]Ennoshita's first name
- Nishinoya's commentary about Ennoshita becoming stronger is technically a bit of a pun. Ennoshita's first name, Chikara, is written with the character for "strength/power".
