This post is getting a bit unwieldy to read and edit (at 30,000+ words), so I’m starting a new post here and picking up where I left off.
「黒子のバスケ：キセキの試合」PSP Game – 合宿編
“Kuroko no Basuke: Kiseki no Shiai” PSP Game
The Training Camp Arc
Riko: There’s no way that will work, and you know it. Our team is comprised solely of easily provoked hotheads, after all.
The events up until the training camp in the mountains are almost exactly the same as in the manga and anime, so I decided to start translating after the end of the Inter-High Touou game, at the beginning of the camp.
You will have multiple opportunities to complete most events, although some are only available once (at a specific time) or are required in order to advance the story. Each event will be listed with the maximum number of days it is available and the number of “kizuna” points that are gained by completing the event. Some events unlock a “panel”, which is a special play or technique that can be used during games (for example, “Seirin’s Run & Gun Style”). The title of each event will be listed in kanji/romaji/English to facilitate searches for a specific event.
As of yet, these events are all available during your first playthrough. (Choose to play both practice games with the team of your choice in order to play the route of the corresponding Generation of Miracles member. Not all characters [i.e., Murasakibara, etc.] are available during the first playthrough.)
Last but not least, it will be difficult for me to determine if I’ve covered every possible outcome, so please let me know if I’m missing an event or if there’s a particular one you would like to see translated. I will add more events to this post as I finish translating, so please check back here for updates!
合宿編 / Gasshuku-hen / The Training Camp Arc
Required Event / No Points
Riko: ‘Morning! Is everybody here? Summer vacation is almost over… So we’re going on a fun training camp in order to make some memories!
Koganei: But we already did the training camp at the beach… Aaah, so much for my summer vacation…
Izuki: It’ll be a nice change of pace from practicing here the whole time.
Koganei: Yeah, but at least we could hope to see some swimsuits when we went to the beach! There’s nothing like that in the mountains…
Riko: Did you say something?
Koganei: No, nothing at all!
Riko: Alright, before we depart, I need you to listen up. The objective of this training camp in the mountains is…! Simply put, we’re going to develop our team style. During the training camp at the beginning of the summer, we worked on enhancing your individual strengths. So this time around, we’re going to build on the work we did last time and develop our abilities as a team.
Teppei’s back now, so all of the possibilities and options are now in place. As a team, we’re going to decide what our style of basketball will be. We’re going to decide this once and for all during the trip…and then make the new Seirin basketball team a reality. That said, don’t misunderstand. Seirin will first and foremost function as a single team! We’re simply going to form a style with that as the basis.
Hyuuga: Develop our team style…
Koganei: Is that even something we can do…?
Kagami: Well, it’s all good, so long as I don’t spend the whole time off somewhere else, running by myself…
Kuroko: Kagami-kun, I hope you get the chance to touch a basketball at least once during the trip.
Kagami: Don’t jinx it! We’re gonna be gone for ten days this time!
Riko: Yep, it’s a long-term camp this time. Thanks to Papa’s connections, we reserved a great place to hold the training! I’m so excited…! Ufufu…
Hyuuga: Just look at her expression… She’s definitely got something up her sleeve.
Kiyoshi: Yeah… If we’re up in some secluded part of the mountains, she might make us all fight bears or something.
Hyuuga: Like hell we will!
Riko: Alright, everybody, grab your luggage! We’re heading out!
Kagami: Oh, this looks like a great place!
Kuroko: It’s peaceful, and the air is really refreshing.
Riko: Okay, once you’ve taken your luggage up to your rooms and changed clothes, let’s meet up again. We’ll start practicing right away!
Kagami: Seriously…? But where are we going to practice?
Riko: Ufu! I’ll explain later!
Kuroko: …this can’t be good.
[at the gym]
Hyuuga: Are you guys…alright…?
Furihata: I’m sorry… I already feel…like I can’t go on…
Fukuda: Even though practice…hasn’t even started yet…
Riko: What are you whining about? C’mon, we’re starting practice!
Hyuuga: Listen here…nobody told me that the gym where we’d be practicing was on top of a mountain!
Riko: Oh, really? Didn’t I say we were going to practice in the mountains?
Hyuuga: What’s worse, you made us sprint all the way to the top on some mountain trail that can’t even be called a road! We’re gonna collapse before practice even starts!
Riko: What’s that? You’re going to do it every day from now on, so there’s no use in complaining.
Hyuuga: No! I wanna cry!
Riko: Sheesh, quit complaining! This is just part of practice, so give it your best!
Kiyoshi: Oh, I get it… It’s a fartlek.
Koganei: A far…toilet?
Kiyoshi: Yeah, it’s a method of training that involves exercising on uneven terrain.
Hyuuga: I get it…
Kiyoshi: (Last time, we practiced on sand. As expected, she really thought this through.)
Hyuuga: So it’s like the last training camp, where we practiced on sand…
Izuki: I guess there’s a method to the madness.
Riko: Alright, you ready? Let’s start practice!

[at the gym]
Kagami: Damn… Man, he’s persistent!
Kagami: How ‘bout this?! … He’s not saying anything, but he’s guarding me so closely… It’s kind of creepy when you never say anything…
Kagami: Aah, man! Mitobe-senpai is so quiet that it’s starting to freak me out. This is way too difficult!
Riko: What’s up, Kagami? Giving up already?
Kagami: No, of course I ain’t giving up! I mean, no, I’m not. But when he’s guarding me so tightly, there’s not much I can do.
Riko: Of course he’s guarding you! We’re practicing man-to-man defense today.
Kagami: But if the defense is this tight, I can’t get an opening. Doesn’t that kind of defeat the purpose of practicing?
Koganei: Kagami does have a point… There’s no way someone would stick to him for such a long time during an actual game. So we don’t really need to do this, do we?
Riko: Naïve!! That kind of thinking is way too naïve, Koganei-kun!
Riko: Listen up. We have no idea what kind of strong opponents we’re going to face in the future. We have no idea what kind of plays they’ll use! So we need to prepare for situations that are normally unthinkable.
Koganei: I guess that’s true.
Riko: And you, Kagami-kun. No matter what the defense, at the end of the day, your opponents are still high school kids just like you! They’ll fall for feints, and if you attack suddenly, you can throw off their balance. We’re all playing the same game. No matter the opponent, there’s always a counter that can be made.
Kagami: Yeah, you’re right. Basically, the opponents are still human beings… Okay! Izuki-senpai, can you pass me the ball?
Izuki: Oh? You have a plan?
Kagami: I’ve gotta be faster than my opponent… I just have to break through! …sir!
Izuki: Easier said than done. Are you sure?
Kuroko: It should be alright. He can get things done when he puts his mind to it.
Kagami: How d’ya like that?!
Izuki: Oi, oi, Kagami managed to force his way past Mitobe!
Kuroko: That’s what’s amazing about Kagami. He can actually pull off incredible stuff like that.
Riko: After all that talk about feints and balance, he broke through the defense with sheer power. Well, the end result is the same, so let’s go with this!
