  • Hotbloodedness!

    8.5
    Maki and Kiyota were on their way to the region of Aichi, to scout on the two team's who'll be heading into the national scene. Though Maki was in a bit of a shock when the star of Aichi was carried away on a stretcher by a freshman of the opposing team. It seems Moroboshi, star of Aichi, was injured by Hiroshi, the center. He flat out dominated the competition. Five minutes into the game, Moroboshi came back, and whil the run was fierce, it wasn't enough. Sakuragi tried intentionally bumping into him after the game when the teams were heading out, by was knocked down easily. Rukawa on the other hand, is conversing with Anzai about moving to America for basketball reasons.



    With Kainan and Shohoku moving onto the national scene, new excitement is always bound to rise, and this episode did a great job of making it hotblooded. First they hype up Moroboshi, but it was someone else who was the center of attention. His comments on looking down on people after dunking added substance to his character. Though they didn't completely ignore the star of Aichi, since after he came back, his team made a fierce run that. It did a good job of introducing these new top tier teams and players. The scenes with Rukawa's decision of going to America was unexpectedly great. Anzai went pretty soft and hard on Rukawa. Even though he's been quiet all this team, he chose the right time to be vocal.moreless
