Overview Edit

Kuroo and Yaku have a flashback to when they first joined the volleyball club. Their relationship started off very badly and they would often disagree on minor things, such as girl's hairstyles and favorite foods. One day during practice, they realized that they both had the same goal to dominate nationals. This helped them to put aside their differences and become teammates who trust each other. Back in present time, Kenma gives instructions and words of encouragement to his teammates, and they continue the match. Nekoma puts pressure on Nohebi and manages to catch up resulting in the tie of 22-22.
