Kuroko no Basket 23
23rd Quarter : In order to win
Soba : cheap kind of noodles made from buckwheat flour.
Kuroko chapter 23
Kasuga : Your pride as senpais, huh...
Kasuga : Ha~n
Left : “We'll win while preserving Kuroko and Kagami!!” A big gamble from Seirin... Come on, show us what kind of men you are!!
Kasuga : Nice~ I like that kind of stuff~
Tsugawa : You say senpai, but aren't you guys only one year older than me?
Tsugawa (small text) : hahaha
Guy : Seriously, shut up already!
Iwamura : … We accept the challenge.
Iwamura : Come!!
Hyuuga : Well then, we won't hold back...
Right : Raise, senpais!!
Hyuuga : Let's do this, Seihou!!
23rd Quarter : In order to win
Flag : Invincible resolve – Seihou high school cheering squad
Board : Seirin – Seihou
Riko : What's with that serious face!
Riko : they aren't that weak, it'll be all right!
Riko : Stop worrying pointlessly and cheer for them!
Kagami : … yes!
Guy : Got you!!
Guy : Aah!
Hyuuga : Like hell!
Guy : Mu...!
Someone : Ooh, awesome!!
Someone : They stopped Seihou!!
Iwamura : This posture...
Iwamura : Could it be that this guy...
Iwamura : is a hook shooter?!!
Bottom right note : A hook shot is a hard shot to block, since you put your body between the ball and the basket, shooting only with one hand.
Iwamura : He wasn't one last year... Quite a bold skill he learned since then.
Iwamura : It seems you didn't spend the last year playing around, huh...
Mitobe (SFX) : *nods*
Kasuga : So what.
Kasuga : You're not there yet!
Izuki : A scoop shot...!!
Izuki : I've never seen such a gentle throw before... If Iwamura is a “hard” type of player, then this guy is a “soft” one...!!
Underpanel note : A scoop shot is made with an underhand scooping motion.
Koganei : So what!
Someone : Oooh, Seirin caught up immediately!!
Kise : Oooh... They're hanging in there way better than I expected.
Kasamatsu : … Actually, how they're playing now is probably the most fitting for them.
Kasamatsu : Kuroko and Kagami's offensive powers are by far above the rest, so they could use them immediately, but...
Kasamatsu : The team with those two exists only since this spring.
Kasamatsu : you could say it's still in development.
Kasamatsu : Hyuuga's outside shots...
Kasamatsu : Mitobe's hook shots...
Kasamatsu : With those at the core of the offenses,
Kasamatsu : this is the other side of Seirin that was developed during the last year.
Kasamatsu : They must have trained considerably since their defeat last year,
Kasamatsu : in order to win.
Kasamatsu : And... There is one more thing I understood.
Kasamatsu : The keyman of this team right now
Kasamatsu : is the guy I was matched up against last time.
Kise : ?
Kise : it's not the captain?
Kasamatsu : Hyuuga is the support pillar on a mental level.
Kasamatsu : The playmaker is the point guard.
Kasamatsu : That guy probably has one more eye.
Kise : Eye...?
Izumi : All right!!
Izumi Let's score this one!
Kasuga : Wha...!?
Guy : Ouch...!!?
Someone : Woooh, he scored!!
Someone : Awesome, Seirin...
Someone : They're not losing to the king Seihou...!!
Guy : Shit, even though we were covering the right side...
Guy : He used me as a screen...
Kasuga : Are you kidding...!? That timing just now... He couldn't have done that without seeing everything from above, at least...
Riko : Izuki-kun can see it.
Riko : Because he has the “Eagle's Eye”!
Riko : He doesn't have any special physical abilities, but he's able to switch his point of sight in his mind.
Riko : That mean he's able to see things through various perspectives.
Riko : He can always see the entire court.
Riko : I told you it would be all right, didn't I?
Izuki (small text) : Wasn't that shot hot?
Hyuuga (small text) : Get substituted right now or die...!
Izuki (small text) : D... Eh!?
Riko : Hyuuga-kun and the others aren't all-rounders, but they all have one strong point
Riko : And they've spent the last year polishing it.
Guy : Our senpais are really awesome after all...
Guy : Then, Koganei-senpai and Tsuchida-senpai too...!?
Riko : Err... Yeah.
Koganei : Uryaa!
Riko : Koganei-kun can shoot from any range!!
Someone : Oooh!
Riko : But his accuracy is average.
Kagami : Isn't that completely plain!?
Riko : For the record, Tsuchida-kun's strong point is rebounds.
Board : Seirin – Seihou
Guy : … this one's going out...!!
Guy : Wha!
Koganei : Here!
Koganei : Ha!
Koganei : Hm!?
Koganei : Gyaaaa!!
Riko : Koganei-kun!
Riko : Are you all...
Riko : … He's not alright at all!?
Riko : Waaah, his eyes are spinning!!?
Riko : Hey, Koganei-kun!!
Riko : Koganei-kun!!
Riko : I think it's just a light concussion, but
Riko : I guess there's no other way but substituting him...
Kagami : Then let me play! … Please!
Hyuuga : What are you talking about, you know you can't.
Hyuuga : Did you forget already what you need to use this energy for, moron!
Hyuuga : We'll finish it ourselves, so just wait!
Kagami : Still, I can't just stand doing nothing after all! If I can do anything for you senpais...
Kuroko : I think the same thing too.
Kuroko : That is why the person with four fouls should stay back.
Kagami : Bu!
Kagami :What did you say, Kuroko, you bastard...
Kuroko : Even if you play, Tsugawa-kun will have you make a foul again and you will be ejected from the court.
Kagami : I won't! And that's why I need to take my revenge on Tsugawa!!
Kuroko : Then I will defeat Tsugawa-kun in your stead.
Kagami : What!...
Board : Seirin - Seihou
Hyuuga : Five minutes left... and six points behind...
Hyuuga : I get it... then I'll leave your fellow freshman to you,
Hyuuga : Kuroko.
Tsugawa : Huh...!?
Tsugawa : I was sure it'd be Kagami who would come back.
Tsugawa : What, it's just you?
Tsugawa : And I wanted to go against Kagami again...
Kuroko : Sorry, I may be lacking in strength, but
Kuroko : I have come for what seems to be a revenge
Middle text : The shadow stood up for the sake of the light!!
Kuroko : as his representative.
Bottom : Next issue, fierce battle before the end of the match!! Who will prevail!?
