Background

Plot

Tokyo Expedition Arc

Washio is mostly seen playing in the practice games during the training camp and can at one time be seen calling out Bokuto when the ace claimed that he hadn't been afraid when Tsukishima tried to block him. After the games, he is seen mingling with others during the barbecue. When Yachi accidentally ate a piece of charred meat, Washio and other players offered her tea and water but she was so terrified by their presence that she was not able to accept their help.

Spring High Preliminary Arc

After Bokuto is brought out of his state, the team plays like usual and they eventually win the match.
