Kagami: It’s finally game time. I’m so sick of waiting! Practice or not, a game is a game! We can’t afford to lose.

[Kise approaches]

Kise: Looks like you’re raring to go, Kagamicchi.

Kagami: Yo, Kise! Same to you. You look like you’ve done quite the warm up.

Kise: Of course! I’m not going to keep losing to you over and over again!

Kagami: Sorry, but we’re gonna win this time, too, and end the training camp on a two-win streak.

Kise: We can’t have that. I’m gonna give it everything I’ve got right from the start!

Kasamatsu: This might be a practice game, but we’re going to come at you with our full strength.

Hyuuga: We plan to do the same. We aren’t going to hold back, right from the get-go.

Kasamatsu: This is shaping up to be a great game… Alright, we’re counting on you.

Hyuuga: The same goes for us. Let’s have a good game.

Riko: Alright, the entire training camp comes down to this moment! Give it your all, ‘til you’ve got nothing left to give! I’m confident that you’ve made some great strides during this training camp. Believe in everything you’ve done up ‘til now and battle it out with all your strength!

Kiyoshi: Yeah. We’ll show you that everything we’ve done, everything we’ve accomplished during practice, hasn’t been in vain.

Koganei: We did some super-hardcore practice, so our abilities should’ve leveled up to match!

Mitobe: ……!

Koganei: Oh! Mitobe’s ready to get started, too!

Izuki: Don’t let your concentration lapse until it’s all over. Our opponent is from the “Generation of Miracles”. Let down your guard for an instant, and the outcome of the game could be decided right then and there.

Kuroko: There is no denying that Kise-kun is strong. But with this team, I know we can win.

Kagami: Alright! Then let’s go duke it out!

Kuroko: Yes. Let’s go.

Riko: Everybody gather ‘round! I’m going to present the starting lineup. First up: Hyuuga-kun, Izuki-kun, Teppei, Kagami-kun…and Kuroko-kun. Let ‘em have it right from the start!

Kuroko: Yes!

Riko: That’s the starting lineup. Alright, let’s go show ‘em Seirin’s Run and Gun-style basketball!

Ootsubo: This game marks the conclusion of both our teams’ training camps.

Hyuuga: We’re grateful that we have the opportunity to get more experience on the court with such a strong school. But if we lose, our coach is going to give us an earful… We’re ready to go and give it everything we’ve got.

Ootsubo: Heh… I think this practice game will be quite useful indeed.

– –

Riko: Alright. This is the practice game that will close out the training camp. We’re up against Shuutoku! As an opponent, they leave nothing to be desired.

Kagami: That’s right. We’ll kick their asses and teach ‘em who’s on top!

Kuroko: But Shuutoku is not an opponent we can easily defeat. It appears Midorima-kun has a lot invested in this game…

Kagami: And that’s why we have to go kick his ass, stupid.

Izuki: The fact that we won the last practice game probably has them even more fired up, don’t you think? As one of the Kings, they can’t afford to lose to the same opponent twice in a row.

Koganei: Urgh… I hope they cut us some slack…

Kagami: How can you say that? That makes it all the more exciting…Sir.

Kuroko: I can feel my heart pounding in anticipation.

Koganei: I mean, that’s all well and good for you guys, but…

Kiyoshi: Haha, what reliable freshmen! We second years need to make sure we don’t get left in the dust.

Riko: Alright, this is the last hurrah of the training camp! Get out there and leave everything you’ve got on the court!

– –

Coach Nakatani: You all should have found things on which to improve during this training camp. Today, I want you to verify that you’ve made the appropriate adjustments.

Miyaji: Yeah, Seirin got us good last time. We’ve got a big debt to repay.

Kimura: It sucks that we lost, but thanks to that, we were able to find some problems to fix.

Takao: Well, for the time being, Shin-chan, we’re counting on you to put the pressure on Kagami.

Midorima: Hmph, same goes for you. Don’t let Kuroko do as he pleases.

Takao: You’re not the only one who doesn’t want to lose again. I’ll stop them, no matter what it takes.

Ootsubo: Listen up! This might be a practice game, but a king accepts only victory! What’s more, Seirin will be the opponent we face during the Winter Cup preliminaries! Treat today’s game like the real deal and tread carefully!

Miyaji & Kimura: Yeah!!

Midorima: That goes without saying…

Riko: Everybody gather ‘round! I’m going to present the starting lineup. First up: Hyuuga-kun, Izuki-kun, Teppei, Kagami-kun…and Kuroko-kun. Let ‘em have it right from the start!

Kagami: Hey, where’s that bastard Aomine?

Imayoshi: Don’t look so pissed! He’s on his way! …ain’t he?

Sakurai: Um, yes! I saw him changing a little while ago!

Imayoshi: Then there’s nothin’ to fret about.

[Aomine arrives]

Aomine: Huh? What, everybody’s here already?

Imayoshi: Ohh, look who’s here. Everyone at Seirin was gettin’ tired of waiting on ya.

Aomine: I got here before the game started, see? I ain’t late today.

Kagami: Took you long enough. I thought you must’ve run off somewhere with your tail between your legs.

Aomine: Hah! Same to you. I give you credit just for not runnin’ off.

Kuroko: It makes no difference that this is only a practice game. I’d like you to know that we mean business.

Aomine: That’s fine by me. Make sure you show me a good time, Tetsu.

If You Win the Second Practice Game

[in the gym]

Kawahara: …it’s all over.

Furihata: Which means…?

Koganei: We won—! Wooohooo!!

Fukuda: We…we did it—!! We won! Yeaaaaah!!

Hyuuga: Whew… We did it, huh…

Kiyoshi: Yeah, we did it! We won, fair and square. C’mon, would it kill you to look a little happier about it?

Hyuuga: I am happy about it! I’m just completely drained.

Tsuchida: Nice game! Good work! [claps Hyuuga on the back]

Hyuuga: Yeah! We showed ‘em who’s boss.

Mitobe: …… [claps Hyuuga on the back]

Hyuuga: Thanks, Mitobe.

Izuki: We did it, Hyuuga! Good work out there! [claps Hyuuga on the back]

Hyuuga: Same to you! Good job today!

Kuroko: Captain…

Hyuuga: Kuroko, great work! We couldn’t have done it without you!

Kuroko: We actually did it.

Hyuuga: What’re you spacing out for? What, are you worn out, too?

Kuroko: Oh, I’m very happy. …although I can’t say I’m not tired, as well.

Hyuuga: The game’s over. You can keel over whenever you feel like it. Oh, Kagami! Great game, huh?

Kagami: Yes, sir! It was just a practice game, but I had no intention of losing!

Hyuuga: I’m sure our opponents felt the same way. Yet we still won. This is a huge victory.

Riko: Great work, guys! You were really incredible out there! And I was able to get a perfect look at the results of the work you did during the training camp! I think I’ll do my best to prepare a wonderful dinner for you tonight!

Hyuuga: Why do we have to do a penalty game even though we won?!

Riko: What do you mean, “penalty game”?! …anyway, congratulations, everyone!

Kuroko: We did it, Kagami-kun.

Kagami: Yeah! We ain’t gonna lose! Whether it’s a practice game or the real deal!

Kuroko: Let’s use our style of basketball to continue winning from now on.

If You Lose the Second Practice Game

IMAG2161 IMAG2162

[in the gym]

Kawahara: …it’s over.

Furihata: We lost, huh…

Fukuda: Our senpai tried their hardest, but we still couldn’t win… Damn it, this is so frustrating!

Tsuchida: We may have lost, but we’re not leaving empty-handed. Whether it’s a practice or a game, no matter what the results, the effort you put in never goes to waste.

Mitobe: ……

Tsuchida: The pain of losing will become our motivation for next time. Let’s remember this feeling, no matter how much it hurts.

Koganei: You’re right. I mean, that’s what we’ve been doing all along. If we let our frustration spur us on, we might win the next one.

Hyuuga: What d’ya mean, “we might win”? We will win!

Izuki: Now we have another goal besides becoming number one in Japan. We can’t let this debt go unpaid!

Hyuuga: Right on. I can’t take any more of this losing crap.

Kagami: Dammit! …shit!

Hyuuga: Kagami, we’re gonna win the next one.

Kagami: Yes, sir…

Hyuuga: We lost this time, but this isn’t the end. We have to get even stronger.

Riko: (Losing here must have come as a real shock to them… Even though we aimed to improve during this training camp, and even though I was so confident they had gotten stronger… This has shown me that their abilities still have a ways to go. But we can’t stop moving forward.)

Kiyoshi: Riko, why do you look so down? It’s alright. We’ll get even stronger. …right?

Riko: Yep, of course! We’ll reflect on what went wrong today and train extra hard!

Kiyoshi: See? We don’t have any time to mope around before our next game!

Kuroko: …the results of this game are truly frustrating. But that is precisely why we will win next time, without fail.

Kagami & Kuroko Ending
[Based on a 1 – 1 (win + lose) record]

IMAG2165 IMAG2168

[late at night on the outdoor basketball court]

Kagami: So we lost, huh…

Kuroko: Yes.

Kagami: You don’t seem that torn up over it.

Kuroko: No, I’m actually very frustrated. But today’s game showed me exactly what I lack. I’ve come to terms with the fact that, in a lot of ways, it was only natural that we weren’t able to win. Unless we practice more and more and continue to build up experience…we won’t be able to win. And even if understanding that fact was all that came of our time here, I think this training camp served its purpose.

Kagami: You’re pretty chill, huh? I mean, I was still royally pissed off until just a minute ago.

Kuroko: Frankly, a calm, collected Kagami-kun would be disturbing, so I don’t see a problem with that.

Kagami: Wanna say that again?! Well, it’s true that there’s a lot we still lack. Endurance, muscle strength, explosive power… Even if we managed to increase any one of them individually, we lost when it came time to put ‘em all together. But that doesn’t mean we can’t get there.

Kuroko: Yes, so let’s do it. We just have to invest the effort. Before our next game, I will perfect my own style.

Kagami: “Your own style”? Sounds like you’ve already found somewhere to start.

Kuroko: Yes. I’ll do my best.

Kagami: I won’t let you leave me in the dust! Alright! I’ll aim to take it up another level, too. I’ve gotta get strong enough to fight on my own.

Kuroko: Then it’s a competition to see who can level up sooner. If you take your time, I’ll leave you behind, okay?

Kagami: Oh? Then let’s see you put your money where your mouth is, ‘cause I ain’t gonna lose!

[credits roll; epic fist bump at the end]
