Manji tells the team that he wants to step down from his regular spot. He believes that with his current skills, he will not be able to help Kirisaki. The team respects his decision and replaces him with Kabashima. Manji’s brother Senichi is worried for him and promises to give him his full support.
After the meeting, Shu goes home where he sees his sister Sae waiting for him. She tells Shu that she wants to watch him shoot at the regional tournament. Shu points out that she has a piano lesson on that day and suggests her not miss it for the match.
