Yushin and Haibuki's friction is starting to affect their game while Nobara tries to put it all aside and focus on her own. The arrival of a new, crazy-strict coach could be just what the girls need...if she doesn't discourage them off the team first.
We get a glimpse into the home life and insecurities of some of the other girls. Tomoyo, Haibuki's ex, has settled in and mellowed considerably since we first met her, but now it's the others' turn to spaz out and lose confidence. They all need to bond as a unit before they can expect to take on another team seriously.
