PlotEdit

Final ArcEdit

MSBY Black Jackals vs Schweiden AdlersEdit

Set 1Edit

Romero tosses a signed ball into the crowd as the announcers introduce the starting lineup of the Schweiden Adlers, acclaiming him as "the world-class ace and representative from Brazil."[1] The match starts, and Romero is part of the three-man block against Hinata, though the latter spikes right above them, scoring the first point of the game. 

After Atsumu Miya botches his try, Romero scores the first service ace of the match.[2] His next serve, however, is received by Kiyoomi Sakusa, and Hinata ends up scoring again. 

As the game continues on, Kōrai Hoshiumi passes the ball to Romero for the last hit, though it's nowhere near good enough for a set. Nevertheless, Romero manages to smash the ball over. Though his back was to the net, he succeeded in spinning right into the perfect spike, impressing the announcers, spectators, and Hinata. 

Hoshiumi then serves his second time, and Hinata uses the Jackal's last hit to drop the ball in front of Romero, keeping him out of attack position. However, Romero turns the motion of his receive into his approach, sending the ball straight to the setter and scoring right after. He then compliments Tobio Kageyama for the nice set, giving him a head pat. 

Hoshiumi serves for the third time in a row, and Kageyama sets the ball to Romero again. He dinks it, and Hinata receives. Adriah Tomas scores. When the game reaches its first technical time out, Romero approaches Kageyama, Hoshiumi, and Wakatoshi Ushijima, asking them if Hinata is "Ninja Shouyou." The three younger players look at him confusedly, and in shock Romero questions how they don't know him if they're Japanese, adding that his son wants to play beach volleyball because he watched Hinata play on TV. Kageyama then asks Romero if by "ninja," he means Hinata's last receive. Romero responds by asking if Kageyama noticed it too. He is then seen with his arm around Hoshiumi, laughing good-naturedly about Hinata's decoy tactics.[3]

Later on, it's Romero's turn to serve again, and it's received by Sakusa. Shūgo Meian scores. 

He is then seen attempting to block Tomas, though his attempt is unsuccessful. Tomas serves right after, and just like before, Romero receives and goes straight into his approach, spiking the ball to the other side. However, this time Kōtarō Bokuto digs it, and Miya scores with a dump. 

At set point, Romero jumps up to block Hinata, only for the latter to set the ball to Bokuto, winning the first set for the Black Jackals. 

Set 2Edit

A couple of points into the set, Romero spikes a ball right through two blockers, scoring a point for the Adlers.

After Hoshiumi digs Sakusa's wipe, Romero is there to hit Kageyama's one-handed set, scoring yet another point for the Adlers. He then double high-fives Kageyama, calling him an "animal."[4]

Romero is seen making his approach along with Ushijima, Hoshiumi, and Fukurō Hirugami, ready for the ball to come his way. Kageyama doesn't set though, letting the ball pass over the net, scoring a point. 

Romero tries to block Bokuto, though he is unsuccessful. The latter scores a point for the Jackals. 

After a set from Kageyama, Romero bounces the ball off of the blockers. Hirugami scores a point for the Adlers.

Set 3Edit

The announcers note that the addition of Romero has taken the Adler's serve defense to an even higher level.[5]

Miya serves, and Romero receives it. The pass is shaky, and Bokuto ends up scoring for the Jackals, 

Romero messes up receiving Miya's serve. Miya scores his second service ace in a row. 

Romero serves, though Sakusa receives it. Bokuto scores. 

Romero hits a block out, but Sakusa saves the ball. The Adlers end up scoring when Bokuto's spike goes out. 

Romero is part of a three-man block against Bokuto. Bokuto scores, however, after spinning around 180 degrees and hitting the ball over his own shoulder. 

Romero is again part of another three-man block against Bokuto. Bokuto tries for a wipe, but Romero and Hirugami both lower their arms. Bokuto's hit goes out of bounds and the Adlers score a point.
