This episode really amazes me to see Momoi has the knowledge of basketball as a team manager. She was force to be reckoned with as the Teiko Middle School team manager with the Generation of Miracles. Now she’s a team manager of Touou Academy. I wish she and Kuroko would be together at the same school of Seirin but it was inevitable. She ends up going to Touou Academy but he still thinks about Kuroko everyday. I also possessed the knowledge of things I love to talk about. I may love basketball but I still have a lot to learn about basketball. I may be smart, but I don’t know everything due to my disability. My plan is to keep learning and learning everyday to overcome my disability. The more data you get, the more accurate the information you get.
