Murasakibara was about to put his hands on Kuroko but he pads him on the head because he’s only kidding about crushing him. Kuroko doesn’t like it when he touched his head. Kagami remembers Murasakibara when he walked by him at the Inter-High and he met another Generation of Miracle. Murasakibara didn’t play at Inter-High because the reason was that Aka-chin told hm not to. That Aka-chi is Akashi: the former captain of the Generation of Miracles. Murasakibara tells Himuro that they can’t play in unofficial games. As he’s about to leave, Kagami stopped him because he can’t just barge in and just leave. He wanted him to stay and play. Murasakibara randomly pulls Kagami’s eyebrow hair wondering why he has split two eyebrows. He doesn’t want to play basketball because it’s very tiring to him. Seirin 1st years consider Murasakibara a weird person. He may be weird but he’s still a Generation of Miracle. He possesses a great talent in one area but he’s very incompetent at everything else. When it comes to basketball, he’s unstoppable as a center. As Murasakibara and Himuro left, Kagami thinks Murasakibara is a little child. He has an idea to act like a kid in order to provoke him. He called him a coward and considers it very lame that he’s running away. As a result, Murasakibara stopped because he’s not running away. Yosen’s going to play some basketball against Seirin and Kagami’s strategy worked.
When the game was about to begin, Kagami’s still acting like a child calling Murasakibara stupid just to irritate him. They’re both acting like children but Kiyoshi tells Kagami enough is enough. He’ll be facing Murasakibara while Kagami face his brother Himuro. Murasakibara has no clue who Kiyoshi was because he don’t remember playing against him. He chose not to remember weak players. At the Seirin basketball gym, Coach Riko watching the players were practicing and running as they completed their previous training better they were before. They’re improving just a little but in time, they’ll be stronger physically and mentally. They’re been playing on their day off because basketball comes naturally to all the Seirin players. Riko’s thinking about the 1st year Seirin players and how they’re doing playing street basketball.
The game has begun when Seirin has the ball from a tip-off. Kuroko’s feeling angry from Murasakibara’s attitude. Furihata passes to Kuroko for a ignite pass to Kiyoshi. He did a slam dunk while Murasakibara’s watching. He wants to make him remember who he was through basketball. Murasakibara has already remembers Kiyoshi. He asked if basketball that fun for him but in a flashback of Teiko vs Shouei, Kiyoshi’s not having fun when he’s losing badly. He was thinking why Kiyoshi’s trying so hard that he knows he’s about to face defeat. He hate it when people waste their energy. He thinks passionate people who loves basketball are stifling and annoying. During the game, Aomine passes to Murasakibara and he wants to crush Kiyoshi. Right now he feels motivated but he rather not remember because it’s better that way. Yosen were going to establish their roles that Himuro will be offense and Murasakibara will be defense. That’s Murasakibara’s style. Since Himuro has the ball playing Kagami, he shoots the ball and scores. The crowd was speechless to see the most accurate shot from Himuro like he did in slow motion. The weather was started to rain but they continue to play. Kuroko want Fukuda to give him the ball as he passes to Kagami for a fast break. Kagami want Murasakibara to doing something but he didn’t want him to smother him because it’ll make him want to crush him. Kagami has a bad feeling that he could be bad news. Everyone noticed that the rain was beginning to pour down heavily. The game was resulted in a cancellation. At the Seirin basketball gym, Coach Riko tells the team to stop. She’s been watch them practice on their own. The players were exhaust and was sweating. Momoi has shown up outside of the gym and asked where Kuroko was. Hyuga replied that he’s not at the gym right now. Riko lends Momoi a towel because she’ll wet from the rain. At the street basketball festival, Himuro wants to settle the score later. He want to keep playing but the game was canceled because of the rain. It’s dangerous to play basketball in the rain while the entire court was slippery. Kagami wouldn’t want Kiyoshi to re-injure himself.
At least Himuro was happy to see Kagami again after all these years. He leaves him a gift that it’s a technique he doesn’t know. He goes for a jump while Kagami tries to block it but the ball went through his hand and scores the basket. It’s called the Mirage Shot. As they’re about to leave, Kiyoshi promises next time, Seirin and Yosen will play in their uniforms. Murasakibara doesn’t think Kiyoshi learned his lesson that he beat him badly last time. When Yosen leaves, Murasakibara pads Kuroko on the head but he told him to stop doing that. Kuroko asked him if he still find basketball boring but he’ll crush him if he keeps talking about basketball. He don’t know what it’s like to have fun. As he leaves, he’ll hear what Kuroko say at the Winter Cup.
Kagami has received a message from Coach Riko to come to the school right away. Riko tells everyone that they’ll be there soon. Hyuga was wondering what’s going on. Momoi was wearing a t-shirt with a teddy bear on it. The boys were distracted by her beauty but Riko wants them to run lap outside the rain. Kuroko, Kagami, Fukuda, Furihita and Kiyoshi were on a train going back to their school. Kagami thinks it’s a threatening greeting between Seirin and Yosen. Kuroko like Murasakibara but they don’t get along as a team. He doesn’t like basketball. He may not like it but he’s really good at it. He can do it even though he doesn’t care. Despite his lack of interest, he became a powerful center to the team. It doesn’t matter if he likes it as long as he’s very talented. He hates players who like the game but they’re bad at basketball. Kuroko said that you can’t win just because you love the game. But you can work hard because you do. When you win, you’re happy from the bottom of your heart. That’s why he likes basketball and Seirin because everyone loves basketball. When they arrived at the gym, Momoi was running toward Kuroko and hugged him. The guys were feeling jealous wishing Kuroko to die.
Kuroko asked Momoi what happened and she said that Aomine hates her that he didn’t participate in the semi-final or final of the Inter-High because of his elbow injure. Riko understand the reason Aomine didn’t participate was because of the quarterfinals against Kaijo and Kise. Kuroko thinks if the five members of the Generation of Miracles have a weakness, it’s their abundance talent. The reason was because the Generation of Miracles possesses strength far greater than any high school basketball players. Because their bodies weren’t fully developed, their bodies can’t keep up with their talent. They must restrict the use of their own power. If they don’t they’ll end up hurting themselves. Momoi thinks Aomine was reckless when he face against Kise. She asked the coach to not let him play. Aomine was very angry but the coach has forced him off the starting lineup just halfway through the games. He was angry at Momoi but she doesn’t want him to play recklessly again. He doesn’t want her to worry about him. He said something regretfully to her saying that he doesn’t want to show her ugly face again. She throws magazines at his face for being a jerk. That’s the reason why Aomine hates her. Kagami asked if she likes Kuroko even though Aomine doesn’t like her. She does like Kuroko but there’s not the problem. It’s very different from how she like Kuroko. She’s worried about him and she can’t just leave him alone. She was crying and everyone tells Kagami that he made her cry. Kuroko lectures him about girls that he lacks delicacy. Kuroko pads Momoi on the head to cheer her up. He said that Aomine doesn’t hate her and she’s just worried about him. He’s sure that he’s looking for her. Momoi went to Kuroko and was hugged by him as she was crying. Hyuga lectures Kagami on that’s how he do it by cheering up a girl. He tells him to shut up because he get it already.
During the night, Kuroko and Momoi were going to look for Aomine. Moments before, Riko understands why Aomine didn’t play in the Inter-High and asked Momoi why the other two didn’t play. It seems that Murasakibara only listens to Akashi because he doesn’t want to play against him. For Akashi, he’s not interested in the championship not because he doesn’t want to win that his victory was assured. After when Rakuzan beat Touou Academy, he was asked if he couldn’t have beaten them more easily if he had played. He said one thing in reply: It wouldn’t have been interesting. The Generation of Miracles is full of powerful beasts. Kuroko and Momoi were walking together with the dog Tetsuya 2 but Kuroko was carrying a basketball. He was training for a new technique as he spinning the ball with one finger. He was training for a new technique. They both went to a basketball court because Kuroko wants to show her his new technique. He didn’t master it yet but he can use it to make up with Aomine. He wants to use it the next time he plays against Aomine. When Momoi was at her defensive stance, Kuroko went through her using a new technique called Vanishing Drive. After when he performed his new technique, he asked Momoi if he could walk with her all the way but she’ll be okay by herself. She thanked him and leaves as she runs through the street. She wants to play basketball with him with everybody else next time. He’s looking forward to it.
This episode’s hilarious seeing Kagami act like a child just to provoke Murasakibara because he acts like a child. Sometimes it’s funny to a little childish just to have fun and be silly. I acted like a child every day but I still act a like an adult. I rather just be a kid to keep my youth alive. The episode has love moments between Kuroko and Momoi that I was beginning to feel jealous that Kuroko has a girlfriend but I’m happy for him at the same time. I didn’t think it’s smooth that Kagami just made her cry and he was lectured by everyone including Kuroko. Kuroko cheered her up by padding her on the head and he said a positive thing that Aomine doesn’t hate her. She appreciate it and she was comfort by Kuroko. That’s how you cheer up a woman. Kuroko really does have a girlfriend and he’s the man. Kagami, you have a lot to learn about ladies. I also learned that no matter how strong you are, you can still get injure and it will affect the team’s offense and defense. They’re going to have to play without their strong player. Just like sports, players can get injure easily if they’re not careful. I’m believe that I’m strong but I have too many scars and I realize that I need to be careful.
