Kaetan desu! (*≧▽≦)
When we last left off, Shiratorizawa was at match point and all seemed lost for Karasuno when good ol’ reliable Tsukishima returned to the court. While he was frustrated about leaving, he did trust that his teammates would buy some time until he returned and so, he sat calmly in the infirmary thinking of what he could do when he got back out onto the court. The bleeding was suppressed and the finger that was badly injured is now taped up and has been immobilized, although the pain has not faded.
Tsukishima return to the court and immediately starts setting up three man block attacks and he tells Kageyama that even though he is injured that he shouldn’t hold back. When Shirabu sets up a back attack for Ushijima, Tsukishima creates his first one touch situation since returning, but at the cost of pain surging through his injured hand. The ball bounces back to their side three times before Tsukishima and Kageyama enact a fake slider hit and Tanaka barely scores Karasuno the break point they so desperately needed.
The team is in high spirits but their physique is clearly beginning to crumble from all they’ve been through, especially Asahi, Daichi and Tanaka. Since both teams have used up all available time-outs Daichi tells the team that even though the Shiratorizawa players may seem bigger and stronger, Karasuno, their teamwork and determination with persistent attacking have gotten them this far and they shouldn’t allow anything to deter them.
Nishinoya was so cool here!!!! As expected of Karasuno’s libero! He did two spectacular consecutive saves to create an opening for Karasuno to score and Tsukishima shut out so many of Shirabu’s setups just from following the ball and using all of his concentration! The rotation is 100% in favor of a super attack on Karasuno’s side! What will they do?! OMG what will they do?!
See you next episode!
