Overview Edit

Kageyama and Hinata perform a quick, shocking the entire gym. Hinata is distracted by his jealousy of Asahi and ends up getting hit in the face.

Plot Edit

Daichi watches Nishinoya lecture Asahi, happy that Asahi's back to normal. The game restarts with someone from the neighborhood association side serving. Ukai watches Karasuno, noting that their receives still have a way to go. However, he gets shocked when Kageyama performs a surprise quick strike with Hinata. Asahi is surprised as well, remembering what Hinata said about how he can now evade all the blockers. Ukai calls out to Hinata and Kageyama, asking them why Hinata jumped even though there weren’t any hand signals, and the spiker replies that it was because he knew that the ball will always go to him. Ukai sits back down in disbelief, noting that Kageyama is a prodigy, but then again a quick strike can be accomplished if there's a lot of practice involved. Ukai compares Kageyama and Sugawara, saying that Kageyama has ability, but Sugawara has mutual trust from all the players.

The spike Asahi does is blocked by Hinata, but the latter is surprised due to the pure strength of it. Hinata is suddenly reminded of the Small Giant, and he notes that Asahi is the same. Hinata thinks to himself that if only he had the height and power, he could be the ace too. Distracted, he doesn’t notice Asahi spiking again, and he wounds up getting hit in the face.
