Boy: Oh, so Seijou's calling a time out now, too.

Aobajousai High School
1st Time Out

Irihata: There was no helping that just now.
Irihata: You're all still keeping your cool, right?
Team: Yes!
Irihata: Then you'll be fine.

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

Matsu: When #10 [Hinata picture] moves to the back and #11 [Tsuki picture] joins the vanguard, Karasuno starts using that center line less and less.
Oikawa: Yup. It's simply a matter of Tobio being bad at dealing with that lanky guy, isn't it?


Oikawa: In both yesterday's match and today's, they gave the impression of not having any direct communciation at all.
(gray bubble) Nice one, Tsukishima!
Oikawa: Of all Karasuno's spikers, that lanky guy is probably the one Tobio is able to make good use of the least.

Matsu: ...Like I thought, I really wouldn't wanna be friends with you.
Oikawa: Why?!
Hana: 'Cause it seems you can figure out people's weaknesses.
Oikawa: Why would I do that to my teammates!!

Crowd: Gooo! Go go Seijou!
Crowd (half-hidden): Push'em back, push'em back!

(Enno): I think he's able to see each spiker's expression, tell how they're doing today, and the like.

(Tobio sfx) Stare stare stare
Tsuki: What.

(Tobio): Even if you tell me to read his expression,
(Tobio): I can't see anything more than a "pissed-off face"!!
(white sfx) Tweeet

Box: Time Out over
Suga: Kageyama!
Suga: Start off by talking!

Suga: For Tsukishima in particular,
Suga: "direct communication" is the key.

Tobio: Right.


Player: Hinata, one more! Focus!
sfx bubble: Squeak
sfx bubble: Squeak squeak

Noya: Ryu!!
Tanaka: Urg!!

Player: Matsukawa, nice spike!
Scoreboard, right: Karasuno
Scoreboard, left: Aobajousai
Boy: Neither side's giving in...

(Daichi): Now Seijou's also at 20 points...
sfx bubble: Hoo...
(Daichi): If we lose this set, we're finished...

(Daichi): --I've gotta stop thinking unnecessary things!
(Daichi): Keep cool!
Daichi: Got it.
Player: Daichi-san, nice receive!


Hana: Alright!

Shimada: It's still in play!
Shimada: They're going to counter!

Ukai: Tsukishima kinda seems like he's got poor hitting form.

Crowd: They scored!! That's two consecutive points for Seijou!
Scoreboard, right: Karasuno
Scoreboard, left: Aobajousai
Crowd: They've caught up to Karasuno!!
Crowd: Push'em back, Hajime! One more!


Girl: It's a "break."
Girl: Definitely a "break."
Taki: Dammit...!

(Ukai sfx) Clatter
Ukai: Sensei!
Takeda: Right!

(white sfx) Tweeet
Crowd: Time Out for Karasuno, huh.
Crowd: Guess it's to change the flow of the game.
Karasuno High School
1st Time Out

Crowd: Karasuno sure has it rough when #10 [Hinata picture] isn't in that spot~
Crowd: Way to go, way to go, Seijou!
Crowd: Way to go!

Ukai: Hey, quit with that stiff expression! Calm down! You're moving just fine!
(above Tanaka) GYAA!
Ukai: It'll be fine.

(Suga): "For Tsukishima, direct communication is key!!"

Tobio: ...Oi.

Crowd: Gooo! Go go Seijou!
Tobio: How the hell was that toss just now, huh?
Crowd: Push'em back! Push'em back, Seijou!


Tsuki: Why are you talking like Tanaka-san?
Tanaka: The hell was that, huh?!

Crowd (half-hidden): Push'em back, push'em back, Seijou!

Tsuki: It pisses me off that you're practically telling me "just shut up and hit the toss, peasant."
Tobio: HAAH?!

(Suga): Tsukishima's at it again! Have some tact!!
(small text) So childish!!
(Suga): We don't have time for them to quarrel...
Suga: Oi--

Tobio: What do you mean?

(Tsuki): He's really pushing it today...
Tsuki: ...I have a way of doing things too, so
Tsuki: I'd like a more uniform toss.

Crowd (half-hidden): Push'em back Seijou! Go go Seijou!
Takeda: Um... What is he talking about...?


Ukai: --He probably means when Kageyama tosses the ball to him for an A-Quick.
Ukai: The arc in which the ball is hit is determined by the toss.
Ukai: If the ball is hit in a location on the setter's side, it's a cross.
Box: Cross
Box: Turn
Ukai: If it's further away, it has the feel of a turn.

Ukai: Kageyama went with the toss he thought would be easiest to score with
Ukai: and Tsukishima tried to hit it, but I guess he found it difficult.
Ukai: Which one is better all depends on
Ukai: the spiker's personality and ability.

Tsuki: ...you aren't the only one "thinking."

Tsuki: The opponents' defensive formation.
Tsuki: The sort of attack that suits you best today.
Tsuki: Everyone is thinking something or other.
Tsuki: Even Hinata thinks every once in a while, and that's what allows you to also use a normal quick, you know?
Tsuki: Just barely, though.
Shou: What do you mean, even!
Shou: And what's with that "just barely"!!
Suga: There, there.

Tobio: Alright.
Tsuki: You're really docile today. Are you sick?!


Tobio: I won't know which is better
Tobio: if I don't give it a try.
(white sfx) Tweeeet
Box: Time Out over

(Suga): Tsukishima probably isn't used to being confronted directly,
(Suga): so he can't back out of it.

Daichi: We're definitely going to take this set!!
Team: YEAH!

Player: Nice receive!

(Tsuki): I'd like a more uniform toss.
(Suga): This is all because our comrades are undeniably strong.


(Matsu): A feint...!!

Kazu: YEAAAH! Right in the empty zone behind the blockers!
Kazu: They really did it!
Hisashi: Seijou must be pissed!


(above Enno) Ooh.
Enno: Right up until then, I wasn't sure if he was going to smash it or not...
(right of Suga) Nice!!
Suga: Tsukishima really livens up when he outwits his opponents~
Shou: Livens up?
Yama: It's hard to tell, but that's a pretty high-spirited expression!
Shou: Really?!

Player: Nice receive!
Player: Center, center!!

Player: Tsukishima, nice one touch!!

Tanaka: Free ball!!

(Watari): Another feint...!!

sfx bubble: Whomp
Watari: Urg!
Player: Good one, Watari!!
Player: It's coming back this way! Free ball!


Crowd: Another feint! Man, #11's good. You're not sure whether he's gonna smash it or not until the last second.
Crowd: Still, Seijou's blockers are tall, so isn't this avoiding a head-to-head battle with them?
Crowd: If they're pulling feints, then to some extent there's no getting out of it.

(Irihata): So now Kageyama's using #11 on purpose?
Player: Left, left!

Asahi: YEAAAH!!
Player: Asahi-san, nice spike!!

Oikawa: Nice one, Mattsun!
(Ukai): Dammit, taking back that point like it's nothing...


Player: Nice receive!
Scoreboard, right: Karasuno
Scoreboard, left: Aobajousai
Player: Setter,
Player: #11!!

sfx bubble: Shwip

(white sfx) Twitch
(Watari): Another feint!!

(Watari): Alright, this time I'll be able to get it.

Crowd: Nice receive, Watari!!
Crowd: Yeah, just how many times do they think they can fool us!

Crowd: I guess #11 can only avoid the blockers after all, huh?
Crowd: That sorta thing would really get our coach angry.
Crowd: He'd be like "quit running away" and "don't be lazy"
Crowd: and all that.


Tanaka: Hurng!

Player: Tanaka, nice receive!
Tanaka: Sorry, it was a little short. Cover it!!
Kin: Dammit...!

Taki: Careful, caaaareful~
(Shimada): If they want to be sure they'll get this point, then...

(Shimada/Kin): they'll go for the ace, right...?!
(white sfx) Glance

(Tsuki): "Everyone is thinking something or other."


(Watari): #11 again...!!

Irihata: No!
Irihata: Don't go any further!!


(Irihata): From a series of consecutive feints,

(Irihata): to a smash!!

Tanaka: Damn youuu!!
Tanaka: You bastard!

Irihata: We were so guarded against a feint that our defense was too far forward...
Irihata: They really got us.
Watari: I'm sorry!
Matsu: It's OK, we'll get the next one!

Tobio: N
Tobio: Naf
Tobio: Nifss
Tobio: Nice.

Tanaka: Don't trip over that word, Kageyama!!
(above Kageyama) Whack
Player: Ooh... Kageyama praised Tsukishima...!

Tanaka: Just how bad at doling out praise can you be!
(left of bubble) Wahaha!
(Daichi): Kageyama is also
(Daichi): undeniably changing...!

Crowd: It's Karasuno's set point!
Crowd: Seriously?!
Scoreboard, right: Karasuno
Scoreboard, left: Aobajousai
Box: 2nd set, Karasuno High School's set point


Shou: Just one point!
Yama: One more!

Iwai: Like hell I'll let you!!
Crowd: Way to go, Hajime!
Crowd: Push'em back, push'em back! One more!!

Scoreboard, right: Karasuno
Scoreboard, left: Aobajousai
Boy: They're sure making a racket...
Boy: Even though everyone at Seijou is top-class, thanks to Oikawa,
Boy: they don't stand out at all...

Takeda: Don't worry! It's 1 point... If you steal one point like always,
Takeda: you can take this set!!

Takeda: --That should be the case, but...


Takeda: now it's Oikawa-kun's serve...!
Box (top):
Azumane | Sawamura | Hinata
Tsukishima (Nishinoya) | Kageyama | Tanaka
Box (center): Net
Box (bottom):
Kunimi | Kindaichi | Iwaizumi
Hanamaki | Matsukawa (Watari) | Oikawa
(below box) ※ Current rotation

Player: Focus, give'em a good one!
Shimada: If Seijou makes a mistake here, they'll lose the set,
Shimada: and right after that strong victory, too...

Hana/Iwai: Put everything you've got into it.

Oikawa: I will.
(left) He's a formidable enemy precisely because he stands in their way!! Next time, we have center color!!
