Girl: Umm, excuse me.
Taki: What can I do for you?!

Girl: I've been wondering about something.
Girl: It's about those those hand motions Oikawa-kun and others have been doing.
Girl: What are they?


Oikawa: A-Quick
(Kin sfx) Nod
Taki: Those are
Taki: signals that the setter uses to tell each spiker
Taki: "do such-and-such sort of attack next."
Oikawa: Delayed spike
(Iwai sfx) Nod

Box: Setter
Circle: A-Quick
Circle: Delayed spike
Taki: The spikers run toward the net with the intention of performing the attack that was signalled to them.
Taki: The setter decides which of them he'll toss to.

Girl: Ohhh.
Girl: So then the ones who don't get the toss just swing at empty air?
Taki: Yep. Well, they'll inevitably end up becoming a "decoy."
Girl: I see...
Player: Nice receive!

Player: Nice, Kindaichi!

Suga: Hey, give me a second!

Player: Nice serve~
Player: Nice.

(Tobio): ...Dammit. Now it's


(Tobio): Oikawa-san's serve...!

(white sfx) Tweeet
Scoreboard, right: Aobajousai
Scoreboard, left: Karasuno
Boy: Just 3 more points, and Seijou will take the first set...
Boy: I bet the first set...

Boy: will end here, with Oikawa's serve...

Tanaka: Bring it on!!

Tanaka: ORYAAAA!!!

Noya: Leave it to me!!!


Takeda: A campfire*...

Noya: My bad! I was going for it!
Tanaka: Sorry, I was too far out, too!
Taki: So this time he's targeting the "space between"...!
Taki: That's a damn excellent place to hit it...

(below panel) ※When multiple players yield to each other in getting the ball, and it ends up hitting the floor instead.

(Players): Where will the next one be...?


Ukai: Urg!!
Ukai: In front!

(Ukai): He did a soft hit that would
(Ukai): drop lightly in front,

(Ukai): after he'd already given the impression that it would be a strong serve...!

Scoreboard, left: Karasuno
Crowd: Just one more point and Seijou will take the 1st set...!

Taki: Dammit, just how many points is he going to steal with that serve of his...!

Girl: Oikawa-kun's really amazing, isn't he?
Girl: Ah! Hey, wait! They're rooting for the guys in the black uniforms!

Shimada: Yeah.
Shimada: I think he is, actually.

Shimada: --In volleyball,

Shimada: it's easier to score points for the side receiving a serve,
Shimada: since they end up being the ones to attack first.
Box: Serve
Box: The receiving side attacks first
Shimada: The side that scored this time is the one serving,
Shimada: so if things went normally, you'd expect the other side to score next.

Shimada: However, that Oikawa-kun
Shimada: is racking up a large number of points with only his serve.


Shimada: If volleyball were to have an "ultimate play",
Shimada: I think it would involve scoring all 25 points with only serves.
Shimada: Well, I doubt it would ever happen, though...

Shimada: Not even giving your opponent the chance to attack.

Shimada: That's what it means to hit a service ace.
Oikawa: This will be the final blow!!!

Team: YEAAH!!

sfx bubble: Swish

Crowd: Seijou's sure fired up~
Crowd: I mean, this set's already as good as theirs.

(Oikawa): Since Karasuno changed setters, they've gotten 3 consecutive points.
(Oikawa): Even if they were due to surprise attacks, Karasuno has undeniably regrouped.

(Oikawa): I won't let you springboard off that momentum in the 2nd set.


(Ukai): This time it's inbetween Sawamura and Azumane...!

Daichi: I've got itttt!!!


Asahi: Right!

Player: Nice receive, Daichi-san!

(Iwai): With #10 as a decoy,
(Iwai): they'll go with #5 from the right...

(Iwai): No,


(Iwai): it's a back attack...!

Shimada: Uhyaa! That's a heavy blow!!

Hana: Urg!!
Player: Hanamaki, nice receive!


Tobio: Hinata, direct spiiiike!!

(Shou): It's my first time
(Shou): doing a direct spike...!!

Shou: Hyah!
sfx bubble: Wobble


Shou: Geez, shut up!!

Iwai: Hurgh!

Oikawa: Iwa-chan, nice receive!
Crowd: Oooh.
Crowd: They're kinda disrupting Seijou's rhythm...


(Tobio): Are they going to go with Kindaichi's quick strike...?!
(Tobio): The one that's hit from above the blocker...!

Suga: Hey, give me a second!

Suga: The timing of Seijou's quick strike seems to be just a bit slower than ours,
Suga: so

(Shou): take a little bit
(Shou): longer before you

(Shou): jump.

(above crowd) WOAAH?!
Crowd: That #10

Crowd: blocked it again?!!

Mizo: Behind you!!!

Mizo: Get it!!!


(above Taki/Shimada) GAAAH!
Shimada: Augh!
Shimada: It was out?!

sfx bubble: Flip

(white sfx) Tweet tweeet
Box: End of the First Set | 25 (Seijou) - 15 (Karasuno)

Ukai: Dammit.


Tanaka: You almost had it, Hinata! You'll stop the next one!
Shou: Thanks.
(sfx) Whack
(Kin): Damn, that was a close one...!
(Kin): He'd completely matched my timing...!

(right of Suga) Hinata, that was nicely done!!
(Oikawa): Since #2 joined in,
(Oikawa): even that shorty, who I'd thought acted on instinct alone, seems to be thinking before he makes a move...

Crowd: Way to go, Seijou!

Crowd (half-hidden): Way to go, Seijou!
Crowd (half-hidden): Way to go, Seijou!
Ukai: Alright! Up until the second half, they'd come across as being one step above you guys, but
Ukai: let's carry that flow you guys created near the end into the 2nd set!
Crowd (half-hidden): Push'em back, push'em back!
Ukai: You're starting to get the hang of the opponent's timing for attacks!
Ukai: Sugawara, good job watching them so closely!
Suga: Th-thanks!
Box: Changing courts

Ukai: We'll go with this same lineup for the 2nd set!
Shimizu: Here.
Shou/Tobio: Osu!
Crowd (half-hidden): Push'em back, push'em back, Seijou!!

Ukai: --Well.
Ukai: Our greatest concern
Ukai: is Oikawa's serve, but


Ukai: We're changing things so our defense will consist of those few best suited to it!

(on box) Aobajousai
Player: --Y'know, about Karasuno's attacks...

Iwai: When you think about them using Kageyama and #10's quick as a base,
Iwai: having a "normal, thought-out attack" like this is unsettling.
Matsu: You've ended up watching #10 way too much~
Oikawa: Using your brain when you're dimwitted will only make your head hurt, Iwa-chan!

(above Oikawa) Ow!
(Irihata): --It's true that both during the practice match and now,
(Irihata): we've only paid close attention to Kageyama.

(Irihata): To think that they had
(Irihata): such a reliable setter among them...

Tobio: Sugawara-san!
Suga: Yeah?!


Tobio: Kindaichi's... er... that shallot hea.... uhh...
Tobio: The timing of #12's quick strike kinda might be a bit slow.

Suga: I think so too!
Suga: It's as if he watches the ball up to a certain point,
Suga: and then strikes!
Suga: Like that.
Suga: A-also, since I stepped on the court before, I've been thinking...
(Tobio sfx) Nod nod

Crowd: Push'em back, push'em back, push'em back, Seijou!
Crowd: Go for it! Go go Seijou!

Ukai: ...I honestly think that
Ukai: the merit to Sugawara joining in is how the rest of the group
Ukai: regains their peace of mind... it has a big impact on
Ukai: the mental aspect of things.

Ukai: Still,
Ukai: by removing the Kageyama-Hinata combo attack, which the opponent is likely wary of,
Ukai: and putting in Sugawara, a control tower that is completely unknown to them,
Ukai: it will definitely confuse them.

Takeda: Because of the gap between him and Kageyama-kun, right?
Ukai: Yeah.
Ukai: Moreover,
Ukai: Sugawara's calm manner of dealing with Seijou, a higher ranked opponent, makes our surprise attacks a success.

Ukai: Even if this becomes a different sort of match,
Ukai: I'm sure that will still hold true...!
Crowd (half-hidden): Go go Seijou! Go go Seijou!
Suga: Kageyama.
Tobio: Yes?


Suga: This has kinda become a situation where we appear to be "rivals vying for the same position",
Suga: in actuality the position is still in dispute,

Suga: and I still want to play in a lot of matches.
Tobio: Yeah, me too...

Suga: But now that I'm on the court,
Suga: the opponents are tall, their spikes are quick, and they target me.
Suga: Frankly speaking, it's scary.
Crowd (half-hidden): Push-em back, Seijou!
Crowd (half-hidden): Go go Seijou! Go go Seijou!
Suga: Being in front of them wears me down,
Suga: but
??? (half-hidden): Lemme see the lineup sheet.

Suga: right now,
Suga: I have you waiting in the wings.
Suga: That in itself is incredibly reassuring.

Suga: The points gained while I'm on the court
Suga: combined with those gained while you're on the court
Suga: make up the entirety of Karasuno's score.

Suga: I'll fight in a way that's best for me,
Suga: and you'll fight in a way that's best for you.
Suga: That is how we'll win against Seijou.

???: The 2nd set's gonna start soon!
Tobio: Osu!!


Shou: Is Kageyama-kun depressed?

Tobio: Like hell I am!!

Shou: What the heck! And here I thought "poor guy, being pulled out of the game like that"!
(above Tanaka) Go get'im!
(left of Noya) It's a fight!
Tobio: Worry about yourself! Like that pathetic direct spike from earlier!
Shou: S-shut up! That was the first time I'd ever done one!
Ukai: ...Oi.
Suga: Ah, that's them fighting in a good way.

Tobio: When I go back in, I'll make you hit spikes like crazy,
Tobio: so be ready for it!!

Shou: YEAH!

(right) Now, onward, to a counterattack in the 2nd round!!
Box: Start of the 2nd set
(white sfx) TWEEEET
Daichi: Let's do this!!
Team: YEAH!
