(Shou): --He caught up to me.
(right bottom)
His spike was stopped, but...?!
With opening color!!
(Shou): He chased me down.
(Shou): Little by little,

(Shou): I've had the life wrung out of me.
???: Oi!

Tobio: Don't get down over every little thing!
Tobio: We'll make up for it with the next one!

Ukai: There's no such thing as a spike which cannot be blocked. Don't forget that.

Tanaka: You'll score with the next one, Hinata!
(left of Noya) With a BAM!

Shou: ...Right!!

Shimada: Ahh...!
Shimada: Again...!

Inu: Alright!!!
???: Nice block, Inuoka!!

(Ukai): Player #7... so it wasn't a fluke...
(Ukai): He's gotten used to Hinata's movements...!

(Suga): His final match since the onset of junior high was a complete shutout,
(Suga): and even in high school, he couldn't win against Tsukishima's height.
(Suga): ...But


(Suga): he'd finally obtained
(Suga): a way to combat opponents that are much taller than himself.
(Suga): That attack, which Hinata viewed as the single strongest,
(Suga): was

Suga: stopped by one lone blocker.

Suga: ...Hinata...
Suga: I wonder if he's alright...

Shou: ...Kageyama.

Shou: --One more time.

???: Left!

(Kei sfx) Glance

Ukai: You wanna ask me why I'm not making Hinata switch out, right?

Kei: ...not really...
Ukai: If this were an official match, I'd probably substitute him... but right now, it's his chance to find a solution to this problem...

Ukai: Still, if it looks like
Ukai: Hinata is losing his fighting spirit, he should probably sit out for a round.


Taki: ...This side should really... concentrate the ball on that long-haired guy or the one with the monk haircut. It's the only solution.
Tanaka: Free ball, free ball!

Taki: That shorty has a sort of "almost there" feeling, but...
Taki: The height difference really is rough...
Taki: When he jumps with all his strength, the taller guy can catch up, even if his timing is a little late.


(Tobio): He evaded the blocker...!

Inu: Urgh!

Tanaka: Dammit!

Takeda: It didn't work...

Nekomata: --A "human wall"
Nekomata: that breaks one's willpower.

Nekomata: If you keep hitting up against it,
Nekomata: it will crush your spirit...


Nekomata: ...he smiled.

Tobio: ...Oi.
Shou: It's kinda...
Shou: different, somehow...
Tobio: Huh?

Shou: Compared to the feeling back then, when I couldn't see past
Shou: the blockers at all and had no idea what do to...


Shou: it's different.

Shou: I know
Shou: that the other side is also just barely keeping up with me...

(left of Tora) One more!!
Shou: ...Even though
Shou: I've only disliked and feared being blocked until now,

Shou: when he appears in front of me,
Shou: it's absolutely thrilling.

Shou: I think with your toss
Shou: and... some... some sort of plan...
Shou: I'll be able to break through somehow.
Shou: So

Shou: toss it to me
Shou: one more time.


Tobio: Of course I will.

sfx bubble: Glance


Shou: Ah!
Shou: Uwah!

Shou: Gah!
sfx bubble: Bounce
(sfx) Thunk

Taki: What the heck was that?
Taki: Is something wrong with the shorty?

Suga: Just now...

Suga: Hinata
Suga: looked at
Suga: the toss...!

Yama: Eh? ...But that's only natural, isn't it?
Suga: Normally it would be, but!
Suga: In Hinata's case, he's always left the ball to Kageyama and focused solely on his swing!

Ukai: gh... T...

(top left sfx) Clatter
(left of Takeda) Ah! I can call time for you!!
Ukai: T-
Ukai: T-
Ukai: T-
Ukai: TIME OUT!!


Shou: Ahh! I-it's not that I didn't have faith in your toss or anything like that...
Shou: What happened...
Tobio: Why are you getting all worked up.
Ukai: Kageyama!

Ukai: Toss the ball
Ukai: to Hinata a little bit softer than your usual.
Ukai: Not the direct delivery you always use, but--

Tobio: Indirect delivery...
Shou: In...??

Ukai: Rather than the straightforward movement of your usual toss,
Ukai: use one that's just a bit floaty.
(above top diagram) Direct path
Top gray box: Direct delivery
(above bottom diagram) Parabolic path
Bottom gray box: Indirect delivery

Ukai: Me telling you to change it all of a sudden might make things difficult, though...

Tobio: I'll do it.
(white sfx) Tweeet


Takeda: Why are you changing the type of toss...?
Ukai: So Hinata has some leeway when he's in the air.
Takeda: Ohh...

Ukai: Earlier, it was as if
Ukai: Hinata were trying to avoid the blocker in midair...
Takeda: Eh?

Ukai: The straight Kageyama hit in the first set...
Ukai: That's
Tobio: Oi. It's because that was a "straight" just now!
(small text) Straight along the sideline!
Tobio: You become able to properly "choose" the ball's path!
Shou: Urghh...

Ukai: what Hinata was trying to imitate
Ukai: as a way of avoiding being blocked.

Ukai: He wasn't able to pull it off at all, though.

sfx bubble: Poff

(Shou): All this time, I've hit the ball without ever thinking about it, so
(Shou): now I have no idea how to match its rhythm by myself...!


Ukai: Time out!
Ukai: Hinata, cool off for a bit!
Shou: Okay!

Scoreboard, right side: Karasuno
Box: Karasuno High School's 2nd time out

Team name
Ukai: Kageyama's sending the ball to the best possible place.
Shou: Right.

Shou: S...
Shou: Sorry.
Shou: I've...
Shou: had a lot of misses...

Tanaka: What're you saying!!
Tanaka: It's aaalways thanks to you that I can hit so many free balls!
(left of Asahi) Yup.
Tanaka: Once in a while, I should be the one who looks cooler in the match!

Noya: Asahi-san scores more than you, though!
Tanaka: Shut up! Anyway, it's fine!
Tanaka: Right?! Asahi-san!!
Asahi: Ah! Yes, exactly. That's right.

Asahi: We'll make up for the lost points.

Kei: They probably won't be able to unless you're switched out, though.
Tanaka: Tsukishima!!


(sfx) Grip
Daichi: Don't worry about it. You seem to be onto something, so see it through to the end.

Daichi: While you're jumping, you're alone,
Daichi: but we're right behind you, watching your back,

Daichi: and it seems that our ace will reclaim those points for you! He's just so reliable, isn't he!
(Daichi sfx) Whack
(left of Asahi) Urk!

Suga: Daichi! Don't put pressure on Asahi!
Suga: What'll we do if he ends up getting hurt!

Noya: Yeah! He's got a heart of glass, y'know!
Tanaka: Don't say anything else!

???: Asahi-san!

???: Nice aim!!

(Suga): ...What incredible concentration... he's been like that every since he switched with the libero...

(right of bubble) Argh...
Takeda: He's giving his all, but it was still knocked back again...
Takeda: What does he have to do to make it to work...
Ukai: Still, he's doing a good job of returning it, with that ridiculous pose. He's definitely got good balance.

Ukai: ...It's a given that he wouldn't be able to pull off a new play immediately.
Ukai: However,

Ukai: whatever it is,
Ukai: he always starts from "I'll give it a try".

Ukai: He's short, clumsy and simple-minded,
Ukai: but he kinda
Ukai: reminds me of something my gramps said.

Takeda: You mean the former Coach Ukai?


Ukai: You know that Karasuno used to have a guy called "the small giant".
Takeda: That's the ace Hinata-kun idolizes!

Ukai: Though he had that nickname, he was about 170 cm. or so,
Ukai: and in the beginning, he was always blocked.

Ukai: In the second half of his second year,
Ukai: the guy he couldn't beat when it came to aerial battles left.

Ukai: Since he was no match for the blockers in height,
Ukai: he aimed for that gap and struck...
Ukai: He intentionally hit the blockers' fingertips and flicked the ball down...
Ukai: Like that,
Ukai: he created a means for himself to fight, despite his short stature.

Ukai: ...What gramps said about him
Ukai: burned itself into my mind.

Old Ukai: Humans have no "wings",


(Old Ukai): so they search for a way to fly.

sfx bubble: Tweet
sfx bubble: Shift

Takeda: Aughh!
Takeda: It went out!

Inu: ...wow...

Inu: That was amazing, Shouyou!!

Shou: ...one more time.
(bottom left) One more step in the right direction!!! Next time, the fierce battle also has center color!!!
