“With that fiftieth victory on the line, let’s fulfill the promise we made back then.”
First Monologue: “Betting Everything on the Proof of Our Brotherhood”
What do you like? What is your special ability? I lived in America from the time I started elementary school. Without knowing the language, I was at a loss at first, but by showing off what I liked and what I was good at, and by letting other people see the real me, I soon made friends. And because I was good at what I did, they respected me. Something I could truly say I loved from the bottom of my heart…that was basketball. Through basketball, I met many different people: my friends, my teacher, and…my little brother. As long as I call myself his older brother, I can’t allow him to surpass me. I am betting everything on this, the proof of our brotherhood.
Second Monologue: “With Your New Partner”
Taiga, you seem to have found an interesting partner on your new team. But…you’re not the only one who has. After I returned to Japan, I met an interesting teammate at Yousen. I may have missed the Inter-High, but with each passing day, I look forward more and more to facing you at the Winter Cup. Come, Taiga. With that fiftieth victory on the line, let’s fulfill the promise we made back then.
