???: Sawamura-kun, Michimiya-san's calling for you~
Karasuno High School 3rd year
Girls' Volleyball Club Captain
Michi: Here's the program for the sports clubs' pep rally. The volleyball clubs speak 5th.
Michi: Have you thought about what you'll say in your "captain's speech"~?
(right of Daichi) Thanks.
Daichi: Nope, not at all.
Daichi: It's finally here, huh.
Michi: The boys' side has been really fired up lately.
Michi: And there're those guys the team used to have practice matches with a lot...
Michi: Yeah, them! You played against them again, right?
Daichi: How's the girls' side doing? They have us in separate gymnasiums, so...
※ The girls are generous
They and the basketball club each use half of the first gymnasium.
Entrance | Girls' Volleyball | Basketball | Stage
Michi: We're... well... y'know... alright...
Michi: Nobody really comes for morning practice, like always... I'm no good at being strict with them either, so...
Michi: We're bound to lose in the first round anyway!
(right of Michi) Ah!
Daichi: Michimiya, you always used to say "next time, we'll win for sure!", didn't you?
Daichi: ...Even if
Daichi: your opponent
Daichi: is so formidable that you definitely don't seem a match for them,
Daichi: If you don't go into it intending to win,
Daichi: you'll never be able to.
Daichi: Er, I'm-
Daichi: I'm not trying to preach to you or anything...
Michi: ...Come to think of it, you got mad and said the same sort of thing to me in junior high~
Michi: That time right before the tournament, when we were crushed in a practice match and I figured that the real thing would be hopeless too.
(Daichi): "Even if you don't have confidence that you can win,
(Daichi): even if everyone else tells you that [it's definitely impossible],
Michi: "As captains, we are the only ones
Michi: who can never say that."
Michi: Is what you said~
Michi: Losing my nerve before a tournament is a bad habit of miiiine!
(left of Michi) Uwaah!
(Daichi): "As captains, we are the only ones who can never say that."
(Daichi, bubble): Those were certainly my words...
Daichi: I know I'm the one who told you that, but...
Daichi: Well, just between us captains,
Daichi: I make a habit not to listen to what others tell me.
Michi: Nahaha! Geez, don't mollycoddle me!!
(white sfx) Slap
sfx bubble: Stinging
Michi: Okay! We'll be fine!!
Michi: I feel
Michi: much better.

(Tsuki): There's a top competitor in our block - Aobajousai.
(Oikawa): "Seeing as how I want to
(Oikawa): crush my uselessly adorable kouhai in a regular game, fair and square."
(Yuu): "Next time, we will definitely win!!"
Enno: What's with that sour face?
Tanaka: The tournament is coming up.
Tanaka: Stuff like that is kinda burning with this "to arms!" sorta feeling, y'know?
Enno: Yeah... well... okay...
Tanaka: if some
Tanaka: cute girls came and said something like
Tanaka: "do your best tomorrow...!!" (falsetto)
Tanaka: ...and gave us good luck charms or something, then
Tanaka: we'd be even more fired up...
Tanaka: is what I've been thinking.
Box: Completely serious
Enno: You're only saying that because you're a regular.
(Ukai): "Datekougyou, known as the [impregnable fortress]."
(Noya): "If we win our first match, and Datekou wins theirs and advances, we'll face them in the 2nd match."
Noya: to club activities!!!
Boy: What's going on?
Boy: Dog training?
Asahi: I told you it's alright, I'm not going to run away...
Asahi: I know that everyone has my back.
Asahi: This time, for sure, I'll hold my head high
Asahi: and say "I'm Karasuno's
(Ukai): "The 3 in front were a decoy... it's a back attack...!!"

Woman: Keishin-chan, I'd like some mirin sake.

(Ukai sfx) Yaaawn
Takeda: Thanks for all your hard work, Ukai-kun...
Takeda: Lately, you've been coming here everyday when club activities start, but
Takeda: what about your job?
Ukai: Up until now, I'd just handled the shop itself, but
Ukai: since I've also been harvesting stuff in the early morning lately, I was told that the shop would be fine until evening.
Harvesting fava beans
Ukai: Well, there's no point in being selfish and taking advantage of it being my folks' place...
Takeda: Thank you very much!
Takeda: I'll even bring some sake next time!
Takeda: There are a lot of attack patterns here, huh.
Takeda: Are you planning to use all of them?
Ukai: ...It depends on how things go.
(Ukai): "If you only pay attention to what's [above], you'll get tripped up from below."
Ukai: Players need to concentrate on the match in front of them, or they'll be in trouble.
Ukai: even we can't help but be overwhelmed by the games to come.
Suga: Nice, Hinata! That was incredible!
Shou: That toss just now had a really great feeling to it!
Ukai: Oho~ Hinata and Sugawara's quick strike is coming along nicely.
(above Takeda) Ooh!
Tanaka: Nice job!
Tobio: Azumane-san, how was that toss just now? Was it too high? Too low? What did you think?
Asahi: Ah... umm... er...
Asahi: It was fine...
Tobio: Tell me whatever it's lacking, no matter how trivial, and I'll fix it!!
Asahi: That's... umm....
Asahi: Then... I guess it could be a little higher,
Asahi: and a little further away from the net would be-
Tobio: Got it!!!
Daichi: Heey! We've already stayed behind long enough!!
(above players) Kaaay.
Suga: Daichi says he's going to treat us to nikuman. Would you like to come...?
Shimizu: have something to do...
Suga: Take care~
Shimizu: Take care.
Box: Shimada Mart
Yama: I'm Yamaguchi,

Yama: the jump float serve?

(Shimada): Ahh... that's right.
(Shimada): I used it during the game against those guys.
Shimada: ...But the Interhigh preliminaries are right around the corner, aren't they? You probably wouldn't be able to pull it off by then, right?
Yama: ...You might be right. I probably won't get to play this time, either... and with 3rd years around, it'd usually be impossible for 1st years to even get a spot...
Yama: I don't want
Yama: to be the only 1st year who never gets to play.
(Yama): Sorry, Tsukki! I want to stop by somewhere, so...!
(Oikawa): The Interhigh preliminaries are coming up.
(Oikawa): Will you really be able to survive them?
Box: --And then,
Box: it was the day before
Box: the Interhigh preliminaries.
Ukai: --I've got nothing more to say.
Ukai: Rest up today.
Players: We will!!
Daichi: Okay! Then that's all for to-
Takeda: Ah, hold on a moment! I think there's still one more person who wants to say something?!
Takeda: Take it away, Shimizu-san!
Shimizu: ...I'm not...
Shimizu: all that good with...
Shimizu: words of encouragement, so...
(Shimizu sfx) Rummage rustle
Shimizu: Sensei, if you would.
Takeda: Leave it to me!!
Shimizu: Sensei... I can carry it...
Takeda: I'm fine!
Noya: What's going on?
Takeda: One, two...
Take to the skies

Suga: Who'd have thought we had such a thing...!
Shimizu: I found it while cleaning, so I fixed it up.
Tanaka: Uoooh! I'm getting all fired up now!!
Noya: Just what you'd expect of Kiyoko-san! Nice job!!
Tanaka: Alriiiight!! I can just feel the motivation co--
Daichi: Not yet.
Daichi: probably not done yet.
Shimizu: Do your best.
(small text) That was a fiiirst.
