Episode Summary

Due to Uozumi being fouled out, and Fukuda being a terrible defensive player, Sendoh was forced to carry Ryonan on his shoulders all by himself. Though for Shohoku, greater events have become more of a priority.

    Uozumi sat out for the rest of the game due to his impulsiveness to argue with the refs. Despite that, Ryonan still had their fighting spirit withini them, and Sendoh single handedly kept Ryonan competing. Sendoh was getting exhausted, and Fukuda was inserted to relieve some of the scoring load. The game went down to the wire as Ryonan was only down by 2. The ball was stolen, and Sendoh made a dunk to send it to overtime. However, greater things were occuring. As Sakuragi was practicing in the gym, Anzai entered as well. A few minutes later, Haruko received a call, whom reported that Anzai has collapsed. Akagi, Ayako, and Kogure, raced to the hospital, and found Sakuragi there in the verge of tears.

    I've seen a handful of these tragic moments in the middle of matches of a sports program. None of them were really well executed, and it felt more like another character was just killed off than inflicting emotion into you. This is much different. Just Anzai's character up to that point just made it seem unfair that out of all the people, it had to happen to him. Though I'll hold my assumptions on him for now, since it's still unclear the details of the situation. Never know, Sakuragi could have kicked his ass, though I highly doubt that. Regarding the game, most of the attention was swayed away because of the sudden news of Anzai, but it was still mildly entertaining, incorporating some of that basketball goodness I've been raving about of Slam Dunk all this time.moreless
