This chapter had me in tears... T^T

(Daichi): you'll never be able to."

Player: Damn, so close! Don't worry about it, Ikejiri!
Player: Keep fighting!
???: Nice one, Hinata, Kageyama!

Boy: ...Karasuno...
Boy: isn't using it...

Boy: That
Boy: "quick where the spiker doesn't see the toss."

Irihata: On the other hand... they seem to have added a "normal quick strike" to their repertoire, though it's still a work in progress...
Irihata: An even clumsier "selection of the ball's course" than before...
Irihata: Could they have had a significant enough practice match to warrant it in this short span of time...?

Irihata: Understanding the weapons at their disposal,
Irihata: adding to them,
Irihata: and attacking with the best one for each game...

Irihata: ...the "wisdom" gained by an unsteady team
Irihata: that has relied on brute strength in all manner of situations, huh.

Boy: How the heck are they "fallen champions"...
(small text) They're not fallen at all.
Boy: They're on a completely different level...

(above players) Silence...

(Daichi): "When you stand on either side of the net, things like rank, grade and class become irrelevant!"

Jiri: --If you don't go into it intending to win,
Jiri: you'll never be able to.


Jiri: Ahh!!

(Jiri): What did I just say?!
Jiri: Er, that's...
Jiri: just now was
Jiri: my friend's...
(Jiri): Uwaah! What am I saying, I've got no persuasive power at all! I'm such an idiot! Aghhh... I completely slipped up...

(Jiri): Uwaah
Player: Hey, that's right.

Boy: You really said something good, Ikejiri. How unusual.
Boy: Volleyball doesn't have any time limit, so if we can hang in there, maybe we'll have a chance to win...?
Boy: The other side's had some great misses, too.

Komaki: Alright!
Komaki: Weaklings or no, this is the time to stand strong!

Komaki: Once more,
Komaki: let's go out there to win!

Team: YEAH!

Michi: It's not over yet.

Michi: We're still in this.

Player: Wait, aren't we getting way too happy over a single point?!
Player: What's wrong with it! Torrents start from just a drop of water, y'know!

(Jiri): Karasuno has more than enough of a lead for a match point...
(Jiri): From their perspective, our 1 point isn't of any importance.

Noya: Daaammmiiitttt!!
Noya: Next time!
Noya: I'll definitely!!
Noya: Keep it in!!

???: One point!!

Daichi: We're taking it back!

Team: Right!
(Jiri): ......Ahh.

(Jiri): These guys are serious.

(Jiri): We have never

(Jiri): been on anyone's radar... they are probably the only ones in this hall


(Jiri): who would play seriously against us.

Michi: Oh geez, don't cry!

Girl: B-but...
Girl: I kept
Girl: getting targetted with serves
Girl: and they scored so many points off meee...

Michi: Keeping the ball in play is what volleyball's all about!
Michi: Our opponent just happened to be better at it! That's why we lost!
Michi: It's not a matter of it being someone's fault
Michi: or anything!

Girl: Captain! Sensei's calling you!
Michi: Okay!
Michi: I'm going to head out for a bit, alright?!

Girl: ...Michimiya-senpai's really amazing... She practiced the most of anyone... I figured she'd be the most upset over this, and yet...

Girl:'ve got it wrong.

Girl: She'll continue to act like a "captain" in front of us,

Girl: but once she's alone,
Girl: she'll turn away


Girl: and cry.

(Jiri sfx) Spaced out

Jiri: ...I gave it everything I had...
Jiri: And so...
Jiri: I didn't impede myself at all...

(Jiri): The day after

(Jiri): I watched a match on TV, I declared only half-seriously
(Jiri): that "I'd become a representative of Japan someday!!"...


(Jiri): I put in the effort, tried imitating the players,
(left of Jiri) Serve!!
(right of teammate) That's not gonna work~
(Jiri): and the tension died down as it became a simple matter of muscle training.

(Jiri): So now it's over, huh.
(Jiri): That was fast.
(Jiri): I mean, it's only June.

(Jiri/Michi): Back then,
(Jiri/Michi): if I'd just
(Jiri/Michi): worked a little harder,

(Jiri): if I'd just put in more effort
(Jiri): in muscle training and running,

(Michi): if I had acted
(Michi): more like a captain,

(Jiri): if I could have been more frantic
(Jiri): at making that receive,

(Michi): if I could have
(Michi): moved my feet just one step further,

(Jiri/Michi): then I'd have been able to play volleyball just a little bit longer.


Jiri: Sawamura!!

Daichi: Ikejiri?
sfx bubble: Haah
sfx bubble: Haah

Jiri: Win!!
Jiri: Win a ton of games!!
(Jiri): Ahh. I don't want to say it... that sort of

(Jiri): "line" is kinda lame and sounds cliché,
(Jiri): and it might put a damper on things, but...

(Jiri): Even so,
(Jiri): I have to say it.

Jiri: Win...!
Jiri: In our
Jiri: stead!!!


Daichi: You got it.
Daichi: We'll carry your will.

(Jiri): There might be

(Jiri): tens of thousands of people across the country
(Jiri): whose "club activities" have ended all too soon like this.

(Jiri): Win all preliminary matches and advance to the nationals.

(Jiri): If this were fiction, those going to the nationals would be the main characters,
(Jiri): and the rest of us would be like extras.

(Jiri): But even so,


(Jiri): We did it, too.

(Jiri): We

(Jiri): played volleyball.


Komaki: Final words!!

Players: Thank you for the game!!

Daichi: About half of these... 23 of these 55 teams ended their journey in the first round.

Daichi: We're going to win the next one, too.
Players: Osu!!
Box: --Second round:

Tokonami 4

[page 9]
Quit spacing out, you space case - This is some cute wordplay of a sort. Kageyama says ボケッとしてんなボケ (boketto shitenna boke). ボケッとする (boketto suru) is a verb meaning "to space out", and ボケ (boke) by itself means moron/idiot. I opted to use "space case" to keep the feel of the original Japanese text.
