A New Start.
Sohoku returns to school from their training camp ready to spend a Saturday full of makeup lessons. Onoda realizes he has grown and tests his abilities by leaving a bit later, along with a little help from his anime watching habits. Onoda thinks back to the previous night when the captain tried to tell him about the upcoming Inter-High, but when the Captain gets cut off and pulled into another call Onoda begins to give up on his dream of going to the Inter-High. It isn't into their last makeup class, which is done by Mr. Pierre, that Onoda learns the full message the captain was trying to tell him. Onoda is given his team jersey and made the sixth member for the upcoming Inter-High. Afterwards Sohoku's team is given special training by the captain that will test all their abilities. Onoda worries he will slow everyone down and begins to drift away. With a little help from the Captain though, Onoda learns what it means to be part of a team and begins to succeed more than he thought was ever possible.
