Riko: I trust you guys are feeling pretty good about your fundamentals?
Kagami: Of course. We’re doing great!
Riko: Alright, then let’s continue with defensive practice.
Kagami: Yeah! Defense, offense, whatever—bring it on!
Hyuuga: Let’s start with some three-on-three, then. Izuki, Mitobe, and Tsuchida will be on offense. Koga, Kagami, and Kuroko—try to stop them with man-to-man defense.
Kagami: Man-to-man? Got it. Okay, I’ll guard Mitobe-senpai, so Koganei-senpai, you take Tsuchida-senpai…please.
Koganei: I don’t mind, but why is Kagami taking charge?
Kuroko: I think he made the right decision. Kagami-kun is a match for Mitobe-senpai in terms of height… And if I guard Izuki-senpai, who has the eagle eye, then it will be good individual practice for me. Since Koganei-senpai specializes in being an all-rounder, we’d like you to guard Tsuchida-senpai.
Koganei: I get the distinct feeling that I’m just getting stuck with the leftovers.
Hyuuga: You ready? Alright, let’s get started!
Kagami: Yeah! Bring it on!
Kagami: Sorry, but I can’t let you pass me that easily, Mitobe-senpai.
Kagami: Urgh! That’s Mitobe-senpai for ya! You’re a pretty tough opponent! …sir!
Hyuuga: Stop! Oi, Kagami!
Kagami: Hm? What’s up?
Hyuuga: Don’t back off in a situation like that! Guard him even tighter!
Kagami: Huh? But if I didn’t back off, I’d probably end up fouling him.
Hyuuga: What’re you planning to accomplish with such a fragile defense?! Don’t worry about it! Just think of this as a battle and give it your all!
Kagami: Okay! If that’s the way you want it, then I couldn’t ask for more! … Mitobe-senpai! I’ve got the captain’s permission, so I’m gonna go all out! …sir! Oryaa!
Kiyoshi: Hey, Hyuuga. Are you sure that’s okay?
Hyuuga: Yeah, it’s fine. I mean, say we’re in the last minutes of the fourth quarter. He needs to build up the strength that’s necessary to go man-to-man in a situation like that.
Kiyoshi: So the goal is for us to be able to stop the opposing team in their tracks…
Hyuuga: Got it in one.
Kiyoshi: Okay, then what would be our cue to try this play?
Hyuuga: If we decide to use it during a game, I’ll give you a signal.
Kiyoshi: Roger that. Guess I’d better get back to practice.
Hyuuga: Huh?! What?! What happened?!
Kuroko: Kagami-kun tried to stop Mitobe-senpai by force, and they collided.
Kagami: Ow, ow, ow… But the captain was the one who told me to give it my all…
Hyuuga: It’s fine to have fighting spirit, but there’s a limit to how far you should take it!

Kagami: Sweet! Food! I’m so hungry after practice!
Hyuuga: Doesn’t matter if it’s before or after practice—you’re always hungry.
Kagami: I can eat about four or five times as much after practice!
Hyuuga: What the heck is your stomach made of…?
Takao: Oh? Seirin’s having dinner now?
Kagami: What, you, too?
Takao: Seems like it… Well, we’re staying in the same boardinghouse, so it’s only natural that we’d eat at the same time.
Midorima: I have to see you at mealtimes, too? Good grief…
Kagami: Huh? If it bugs you that much, then you don’t have to eat.
Midorima: Don’t be stupid. I might not want to see you, but I’m still hungry.
Kagami: Then just shut up and eat already…
Takao: Alrighty! Man, I wonder what’s for dinner tonight!
Takao: Hm? What’s up?
Kagami: These are Seirin’s seats. Aren’t you guys supposed to sit over there?
Takao: Ehh? It doesn’t really matter, does it? The food’s the same no matter where you sit. Ahh! Wait, why don’t we shuffle our seats?
Kagami: Who made you the boss?
Takao: Don’t worry about it! It’ll be like a cultural exchange! We can swap info and stuff. It’ll be fun! C’mon! Kagami, you sit here!
Takao: Ootsubo-san…why don’t you sit here?
Hyuuga: Wait, where are we supposed to sit?
Izuki: We’re sitting together with Shuutoku…
Takao: C’mon! Come sit over here, please! I personally recommend this table!
Kuroko: …um…where should I sit?
Takao: Kuroko, you’re fine where you are.
Midorima: Oi, Takao! What do you think you’re doing?
Takao: Oh! I forgot all about Shin-chan! Okay, just sit in that open seat there!
Takao: Alright, let’s dig in!
[at the GoM + Kagami table]
Kuroko: This is delicious.
Midorima: …how did this happen…?
Kagami: Don’t look at me. Your guy was the one who barged in and messed things up.
Kuroko: But isn’t this kind of fun? We don’t normally get to eat together.
Midorima: This couldn’t be any less fun. …but that aside, Kagami, your appetite is as amazing as ever. What on earth is that mountain of rice?
Kagami: Huh? It’s annoying to have to keep getting up for seconds.
Midorima: Ugh…what a glutton… I feel sick just looking at your bowl.
Kagami: Shove it!
Takao: How’s it going? You guys having fun?
Kuroko: You certainly look like you’re enjoying yourself.
Takao: Yeah, well, when I look over at your table…nah, it’s nothing. More importantly, Kuroko, are you gonna eat that heaping serving of rice, too?
Kuroko: I’m going to eat twice that much.
Takao: Wow, you’ve got a surprisingly big appetite.
Kuroko: No, that’s not it… That’s our quota during training camp… But honestly, there’s no way I can finish it. Kagami-kun always looks forward to mealtimes, but for me, they’re even tougher than practice.
Takao: Uh, seems like you’ve got it rough…
Midorima: …I don’t care how hungry you are! What’s the deal with that ridiculous appetite?! How many servings have you had?!
Kagami (chewing): Huh?! Shut up! I’m hungry, damn it!
Midorima: And you’re making a mess! Your manners are awful!! Why do I have to sit next to you…?! Kuroko, you’re no better! As an athlete, aren’t you embarrassed that you eat so little?!
Kuroko: No one is forcing you to sit with us.
Takao: Aren’t you glad you get to sit at such a lively table? I’ll be looking forward to mealtimes every day from now on~!
Midorima: Takao…don’t expect me to forget that this is all your fault.
Takao: Yeah, yeah. We’re supposed to bend the rules and relax a little during training camp, you know.
Midorima: That’s…news to me.
Takao: C’mon, now, it’s bad manners to make so much noise at the dinner table.
Midorima: Takao…you’d best be prepared to face the consequences.

Kiyoshi: It feels great to exercise first thing in the morning! Alright, I can’t wait for breakfast!
Kuroko: All that’s waiting for me is a serving of rice that I won’t possibly be able to finish. Honestly, it’s depressing.
Kiyoshi: With that kind of attitude, you won’t even be able to swallow your food. So long as you eat with a smile, even a quiet guy like you should be able to really pack it in!
Kuroko: Kiyoshi-senpai, you say some really crazy things sometimes.
Kiyoshi: Hm? There’re a lot of people gathered over there.
Kuroko: Are they the guys from Shuutoku?
Kiyoshi: No…I don’t think so. I feel like I’ve seen them somewhere before, though. A famous school, maybe?
[Kise runs up]
Kuroko: Kise-kun…? What are you doing here?
Kise: I was right! It was Seirin! I knew I’d seen that uniform before! You guys here for a training camp, too?! We’re starting ours today!
Kuroko: Kaijou is holding its training camp here, as well?
Kise: Yeah! Maybe we’ll get to hang out at night or something!
Kagami: Kise?! Why the heck are you here?!
Kise: Oh, Kagamicchi! Looks like we’re gonna be staying in the same boardinghouse. What a coincidence!
Kagami: Is this really just a coincidence?! What’s going on?!
Kasamatsu: So I see Seirin’s holding a training camp here, too.
Hyuuga: It’s not just us. Shuutoku’s here, too.
Kasamatsu: What the—?! Are you doing some kind of joint training camp?
Hyuuga: Nah, it’s purely coincidental…
Hayakawa: Oooh! Since Sei(ri)n’s (h)ere, maybe we’ll get to (pr)actice (to)gether!
Hayakawa: Like I (sa)id, maybe we’ll get to (pr)actice (to)gether!
Moriyama: Don’t worry about him. Since we’re staying at the same boardinghouse, I wonder if they’re going to make us do joint practices or something.
Hyuuga: I wonder. If your coach would like to, I’m sure it’d be okay with ours.
Riko: Hyuuga-kun, about that, it seems like there was a mix-up with the gym reservations.
Hyuuga: A mix-up? What happened?
Riko: Kaijou’s going to be using the same gym we are.
Hyuuga: Eeeh? So we’ll be holding joint practices by default?!
Riko: Hehehe! Being able to practice with Kaijou—it’s better than I could have dreamed! I’ve gotta go coordinate our practice schedules!
Kuroko: …looks like we’ll be practicing with Kise-kun and his team.
Kagami: Kise will be with us during practice, and when we get back to the boardinghouse, I’ll have to put up with Midorima, too…
Kuroko: With all of us here, this should be quite fun.
Kagami: What is the deal with this training camp?

Riko: Alright, we’re starting our joint practice with Kaijou. This should be really beneficial for us.
Hyuuga: It’s really intriguing to see how another team practices.
Riko: Let’s go show them what we can do.
Kuroko: Kagami-kun, why are you making that scary face?
Kagami: Oh, I didn’t mean to, but even though this is just practice, I still get really pumped up when I see guys from another team.
Kuroko: But you’ll intimidate them if you keep making that face.
Kise: Hey there, Kagamicchi. How’s it going?
Kagami: What, did you come to spy on us?
Kise: We’re practicing in the same gym, so you can hardly call it “spying”… Since we’re holding joint practices, I thought I’d go ahead and introduce our team members.
Riko: That’s a great idea! We haven’t had a chance to formally introduce ourselves, after all, so let’s take this opportunity. Everybody, gather round!
Kise: ‘Kay, I’ll introduce our regulars. This guy is our captain, Kasamatsu-senpai.
Kasamatsu: I’m the point guard, Kasamatsu Yukio. Nice to meet you.
Hyuuga: We look forward to working with you.
Kise: The guy over there who’s the second-most handsome after me is Moriyama-senpai, a third year.
Moriyama: Quit fishing for compliments! Ah, hello. I’m Moriyama Yoshitaka. By the way— Seirin’s coach, if you happen to have any cute female friends, would you mind introducing me?
Kasamatsu: What an idiot! Cut it out, Moriyama!
Riko: Haha…ha… What a lovely person.
Hyuuga: Crap! Coach, you’re laughing, but your eyes are dead serious.
Kise: …can I keep going? Over there we have…
Hayakawa: I’m a second yea(r), Hawakawa Mitsuhi(ro)!! I look forward to (wor)king with you!!
Kagami: …what’d he say?
Hayakawa: Like I sai(d), I’m Hayakawa! I look forward to (wor)king with you!!
Kagami: …look forward to…“king”?
Kasamatsu: He has trouble with his r’s, and he’s difficult to understand, but please bear with it.
Kise: This plain-looking guy is Kobori-senpai. He’s the most normal, straightforward person on our team.
Kobori: That was kind of a weird introduction, but I look forward to working with you.
Moriyama: Then the most straightforward one would have to be Kise…
Hayakawa: Are you tryin’ to say that we a(re)n’t?!
Kise: Eh?! No, not at all!
Hayakawa: Then what did you mean?!
Kuroko: Kise-kun…it looks like you get quite well with everyone from Kaijou.
Kise: “Get along”? More like I’m just getting picked on by my senpai…
Hayakawa: Don’t say stuff that makes the (r)est of us look bad, Kise!
Kasamatsu: Hey, just drop it. …well, our team’s full of interesting characters, but let’s try our best to work together during this training camp.
Kise: Wait a sec, why are you wrapping it up, Kasamatsu-senpai?! I still haven’t introduced myself!
Kasamatsu: Your introduction? Do you even need one?
Kise: Of course! Right, Kurokocchi?
Kuroko: …alright, if you must.
Kise: What’s that supposed to mean?!
Kasamatsu: Go ahead, then.
Kise: I’m a first year, Kise Ryouta! I look forward to working with you!
Kasamatsu: He’s a member of the “Generation of Miracles”, and he’s also pretty famous as a model. With one look at someone’s movements, he can mimic them and make them his own… That’s how he earned his title as the copy specialist.
Kagami: …jeez. That copycat act gave me a little trouble last time.
Kise: I’ll give you more than just a little trouble this time!
Kagami: Ha! Bring it on!
Kasamatsu: That’s our team. Let’s get along.
Riko: We look forward to working with you! Alright, now it’s our turn…
Hyuuga: …okay, that’s everybody.
Kise: Formally introducing ourselves like this… It really gets my blood pumping!
Kasamatsu: ‘Cause now you’re personally acquainted with the guys on whom you’ll be getting revenge. We might get the chance to play a practice match… And if we do, we won’t lose, Seirin.
Hyuuga: Same goes for us.
Kagami: Yeah, we’ll win for sure!
Kuroko: We won’t lose.
Kasamatsu: Looks like you guys are ready to go. Let’s have a productive practice!
Hyuuga: Yes. We’re counting on you!
