“This will be the last pass I ever receive…”

As the dark horse from Nagasaki, Hirado Middle School has long proven a thorn in the side of Nankatsu Middle School.

Having grown through their matches against Nankatsu and affected by the retirements of Jito and the other third-years, Hirado has changed tack from their strategy of feigning weakness to a more straightforward style, where they are always playing to their full strength.

With Sano at the core of this new approach, the question that remains is how their newest player (your own character) can combine with him and contribute to Hirado’s success…
