2 Days to Complete / 50 “Kizuna” Points
[Prerequisite: “The Girls’ Secret Plan”]
[late at night in Seirin’s room at the boardinghouse; someone knocks on the door]
Izuki: Hm? We’ve got a visitor, this late?
Koganei: Coming—! Who is it—? [opens the door]
Imayoshi: Good evenin’ to ya—!
Izuki: You’re Touou’s… What do you want?
Imayoshi: Haha, take it easy, now. There’s just a little something I wanna ask ya. Say, did our manager come pay you all a visit, by any chance?
Koganei: By “manager”, you mean…Momoi-chan, right? Why would she do that?
Imayoshi: Beats me. That’s why I came to ask. Ever since this mornin’, she’s been disappearing every time we take a breather from practice, and even during lunch… And it sure looks to me like she’s been spendin’ that time with your coach.
Tsuchida: With Coach?
Imayoshi: Yep. That’s why I came to ask if you all might happen to know something ‘bout it.
Kiyoshi: Riko did keep disappearing every now and again during lunch and our breaks. Have you heard anything from Momoi?
Imayoshi: Funny ya should ask… When I tried asking her, she went and told me, “It’s a secret for now!” I’d hate to think she was causing trouble for you folks, so I came over to check up on things, just in case.
Kiyoshi: I see… Mitobe, have you heard anything from Riko?
Kiyoshi: What about you, Izuki?
Izuki: No, she hasn’t told me anything.
Kiyoshi: Hm. Kagami? Kuroko?
Kagami: No idea—I mean, I don’t know.
Kuroko: …I saw Coach and Momoi-san talking and laughing together during practice, but I couldn’t catch whatever they were talking about. And neither one of them has told me anything, either.
Kiyoshi: Got it. I guess there’s one way to find out… Hyuuga.
Hyuuga: Yeah. I’ll go ask Coach about it.
[a few minutes later]
Kiyoshi: Welcome back. How’d it go?
Hyuuga: No dice. Maaan… Sorry.
Imayoshi: Gotcha… What were they up to, anyway?
Hyuuga: Well, you see…
Momoi: …so I’ve been thinking, why not just do both?
Riko: Oh, I see! That way, we wouldn’t have to worry about it.
Hyuuga: Yo, Coach, Momoi.
Riko: Huh? Hyuuga-kun…
Hyuuga: Oops, did I interrupt something?
Riko: Hyuuga-kun…did you hear what we were talking about?
Hyuuga: No? I just happened to be passing by, so I didn’t really hear anything.
Riko: …is that the truth?
Hyuuga: Hey, what’s with the third degree? Now I’m even more curious about—
Riko: I’m not telling.
Hyuuga: Shot down!! …okay, what about you, Momoi?
Momoi: I’m sorry!! It’s a secret!!
Hyuuga: Oh, well, you don’t have to apologize…
Riko: Hyuuga-kun, trying to probe into a maiden’s secrets could very well be classified as sexual harassment!!
Hyuuga: What? I didn’t even do anything!
Riko: Anyway, no boys allowed right now! Got it? Now hurry up and scram!!
Hyuuga: A-alright, geez! I’m leaving, see?!
Hyuuga: …that’s all I got. Pretty much a waste of time…
Imayoshi: I hear ya… Think it’s some kinda secret girls’ talk?
Hyuuga: It did kinda seem that way. Pretty hard for a guy to intrude, you know?
Kiyoshi: They’re the only girls here, so I guess they might want to hang out and talk about stuff. They’re not causing any trouble for either team, so why don’t we just wait and see what happens?
Imayoshi: Yeah. I’m kinda intrigued, but…let’s just watch and wait for now. Sorry for botherin’ you so late at night. Thank ya kindly!
Kiyoshi: Nah, the same goes for us. If something else happens, feel free to drop by.
Kagami: Hm? What’s up, Kuroko?
Kuroko: It’s nothing. I just have a bad feeling about this…
Kagami: A bad feeling?
Kuroko: I can only hope I’m reading too much into it…

見損なったぜ! / Misokonatta ze! / I Misjudged Them!
1 Day to Complete / 10 “Kizuna” Points
[Prerequisite: “The Difference in Strength Is Too Great”]
[in Seirin’s room at the boardinghouse; morning]
Kawahara: Ahh… Ow, ow, ow. I think I might’ve pulled a muscle.
Fukuda: Urgh… I’m beyond exhausted…
Kawahara: Well, after all the practice we did, it’s no surprise that our bodies need more time than usual to recover.
Furihata: Speaking of practice, where are Kuroko and Kagami?
Fukuda: Kuroko’s probably in the bathroom, right? He’s always got a crazy case of bedhead in the morning.
Kawahara: And it looks like Kagami’s…still asleep.
Fukuda: Yeah, he seemed pretty worn out yesterday.
Furihata: Gotcha… ………hey, there’s something I need to ask you guys. Do you have a sec?
[later, in a hallway in the boardinghouse; Kagami runs down the hallway]
Kagami: Crap! I completely overslept! I way overslept! I’ve gotta get down to breakfast now, or…
Furihata: Oh, Kagami. So you’re awake.
Kagami: Yeah. I guess the exhaustion finally caught up with me. And we were practicing our asses off until late last night with you guys.
Furihata: Um, yeah. About that, Kagami.
Furihata: We don’t need you to practice with us anymore.
Kagami: What?! What’s that supposed to mean?
Furihata: There’s just no disputing the fact that you two are a cut above the rest of us.
Kawahara: Even all three of us together can’t hold a candle to you, Kagami. So practicing with us doesn’t do you any good, right? It’s just a waste of your time.
Kagami: You bastards… Are you serious about this?
Fukuda: That’s the way we feel… All three of us. There’s no point in us practicing with you guys.
Kagami: …oh, is that right? Shit! Have it your way, then!! [runs off]
[in the dining hall]
Kagami: (Dammit. What is their problem, anyway?! I thought they wanted to get stronger!!)
Kuroko: Why are you in such a bad mood, Kagami-kun?
Kagami: What the—?! How many times do I have to tell you not to surprise me like that?!
Kuroko: But I was here first… Anyway, did something happen?
Kagami: Not really. Just that Furihata and the others came and told me that they don’t wanna practice with us anymore. They said it’s a waste of time.
Kuroko: …I really don’t think that’s the case, though.
Kagami: Don’t ask me! They’re the ones who said it. Maybe they lost their motivation ‘cause they couldn’t beat us, no matter how hard they tried?
Kuroko: …are you sure about that? I don’t think that’s the kind of people they are…
Kagami: I mean, even I thought they were guys with more backbone than that. But still…dammit, I guess I misjudged them.
Kagami: Argh! That’s enough! It’s just pissing me off, so we’re done talking about them!

激しい散歩 / Hageshii Sanpo / The Grueling Walk
2 Days to Complete / 80 “Kizuna” Points
[Prerequisite: “I Brought Him Along…”]
[Seirin’s room at the boardinghouse; early morning]
Kagami: [sleepy] Huh? What is it…? Let me sleep a little longer… ………zzzzz zzzz…
Nigou: Woof woof!
Kagami: Urgh… What’s the matter…? It’s not time to get up yet!
Koganei: [yawns] …it’s time for his walk. Kagami, can you take this one?
Kagami: What?! Why do I have to do it?!
Koganei: We’ve all been taking turns. Take one for the team. I’m gonna go back to sleep…
Kagami: Dammit! Nigou, you bastard… It’s way too early for this!
Kagami: Sheesh… Alright, let’s go for a walk, then.
[on the outdoor basketball court]
Kagami: Maaan, I’m so sleepy… I bet I could fall asleep right here. …nah, if I slept out here in the sun, I’d probably get fried to a crisp.
Nigou: Woof woof!
Kagami: I’m getting hot just looking at you wearing all that fur. Don’t keel over from the heat, got it?
Kagami: Oh? Somebody left a basketball out here. Since I’m already up early and all, I might as well shoot a few hoops to wake up. Here goes! [takes a shot, which bounces off the rim] Crap, I missed.
Kagami: Got a problem, do ya? You sure look like you’ve got somethin’ to say! I only missed just now ‘cause my body’s not fully awake yet! [dribbles the ball] Here, just watch. Orya! [takes a shot and makes a basket] Sweet! Didja see that, Nigou? Shots like that’re a piece of cake, even if I’m still half asleep!
Kagami: What, you’re still not satisfied? Yeah, I get it! A dunk, huh? You wanna see me dunk the ball, do ya?! Well, bring it on! Uwooooooah! [drives down the court and dunks the ball] How d’ya like that?! I ain’t done yet! [dunks the ball] Hell yeah! Nobody can stop me now! [dunks the ball] Take this! [dunks the ball]
[back in the room]
Koganei: Geez, just how far did Kagami take Nigou on his walk?
Kuroko: Do you think he could have gotten lost in the mountains…?
Koganei: What should we do?! Should we call the police?!
Nigou: Woof woof!
Kuroko: Oh, look! It’s Nigou.
Koganei: [sighs] …so you finally made it back, huh?
[Kagami enters the room]
Kagami: Haaa… Haaa…
Koganei: You took forever! We were worried about you!
Kagami: Wa…water… Somebody give me some water…
Koganei: Whoa, what happened?! What on earth did you do on that walk…?
Kuroko: It looks like Nigou enjoyed his walk with Kagami-kun.
Nigou: Woof woof!
Kuroko: Kagami-kun, you’ll have to take him on another walk sometime.

ヤジに惑わせるな / Yaji ni Madowaseru na / Don’t Fall for the Taunts
1 Day to Complete / No “Kizuna” Points
[in the main gym]
Kasamatsu: Run it again!
Aomine: Ohh, they’re really workin’ up a sweat. Let’s get a closer look…
Kise: (Aominecchi…?! What’s he doing here?) [dribbles the ball; shoots and makes a basket]
Aomine: Ooh, nice shot! I knew ya could do it, Kise.
Kise: (I bet he came over here knowing full well that we’re in the middle of practice… Alright, whatever. I’ll just have to ignore him for now.)
Aomine: Kise—! You’re doing shooting practice, ain’t ya? Show me something fancy!
Kise: (Just ignore him!!)
Hayakawa: Kise! Look sha(r)p! [passes to Kise]
Kise: Nn…! [takes a shot and makes a basket]
Aomine: Wow, two in a row! Look at you! Your form was a little shaky, though.
Kise: (What on earth is his problem?! Did he come here just to mess with me?!) [takes a shot and misses]
Kise: I-I’m sorry!! (Dammit. I could’ve made that…! This is all Aominecchi’s fault!)
Aomine: Hey, now, what’s wrong? That shot ain’t worthy of the “Generation of Miracles”, y’know.
Kise: ………!! (No, I can’t get riled up! That’s exactly what he wants! Ignore him! Just ignore him!) Send me another pass, please! [runs down the court]
Aomine: Don’t rush it! Your timing’s off!
Kise: ………!! [takes a shot and misses]
Aomine: Oh, man. See? Told ya so.
[Kise runs up to Aomine]
Aomine: You what?
Kise: I can’t believe you!! You keep distracting me!!
Aomine: The problem is that you’re letting yourself get distracted by some silly taunts in the first place. What if this was a game?
Kise: That’s a completely different story, and you know it! What are you doing here, anyway, Aominecchi?!
Kasamatsu: Hey, Kise! Quit screwing around!!
Kise: Kasamatsu-senpai…! B-but Aominecchi was—
Kasamatsu: We’re at a boardinghouse, so it’s hardly unusual to see guys from other schools pass by. You need to concentrate! We’re in the middle of practice!
Kise: Mnn… Of course… I apologize. …geeez!! Now even Kasamatsu-senpai’s mad at me, and it’s all your fault, Aominecchi!
Kise: …wait, he’s gone?!
Kasamatsu: If you’re looking for Aomine, I think he left while we were talking.
Kise: That was fast! Ugh… He comes in here, stirs up a bunch of trouble, and then heads for the hills. He’s the worst…
Kasamatsu: C’mon, time to get back to practice. Try to stay focused this time.
Kise: Y-yes… Roger that. Urgh… Could this day get any worse…?
