"I've noticed that, recently, instant soup packets, soy sauce packets and other little packets seem easier to open. That's really big to me. Somewhere out there are people working their hardest on even small details like that. It really impresses me."

The spring tournament preliminaries are about to begin, and Karasuno starts their first official game with the hopes of turning all their frustrations and losses into victories!
