Episode Summary

The Fool with the Worst Record, A Combination is Born
It seemed like a disaster for two trouble makers in Miyagi and Sakuragi to collide with each other, but it seems things have turned out much better than expected.

  • A new relationship, born?

    Two bombs exploding at the wrong time, both Miyagi and Sakuragi's tempers start colliding with each other. Thank goodness Shohoku has the police gorilla to calm things down, along with Ayako to paralyze Miyagi with her mere looks. After practice, Miyagi and Sakuragi somehow decide to hang out with each other, though not intentionally. When Sakuragi was teasing Miyagi about Ayako, he starts getting emotional, and tells him the reason why he's playing basketball, and what's constantly fueling his fire. Sakuragi then exchanges his life story, and how he's more pathetic than Miyagi. Surprisingly, the next day, the two troublemakers become friends in order to support each other in hopes of fulfilling each other's dreams. However, it seems like they'll be running into trouble, as Mitsui still holds a grudge, and a man named Tetsuo is out to aid him.

    I've seen a lot of episodes like this already, and honestly, they make me sick. This didn't. The newer and more updated animes try to add more effect and exaggerate these types of scenes, but they don't realize that they're losing that down to earth presence that is exactly what shapes up these classic and older animes. Only a dose of exaggeration would do, but not so much you overflow it with it. The first half of the episode was pretty entertaining that held my attention. I can never stop laughing at Sakuragi playing with Anzai's fat chin. The second half really did a great job of welding the relationship between Miyagi and Sakuragi. A lot of people find these types of scenes boring, but I just love great character development.moreless
