黒子テツヤ (小野賢章) & 火神大我 (小野友樹)
Kuroko Tetsuya (Ono Kenshou) & Kagami Taiga (Ono Yuuki)
Kagami: “You might not look it, but you’ve got one hell of a competitive streak, don’t you?”
[in the gym at Seirin; Kagami breathes hard as he drives to the basket and dunks the ball]
Kagami: Alright! One more time!
Kuroko: Nice shot, Kagami-kun.
Kagami: Wha—?! K-Kuroko?! Don’t sneak up on me like that! You nearly gave me a heart attack!
Kuroko: I did call to you several times.
Kagami: Seriously? I didn’t hear a thing. Geez, here I thought I’d gotten used to that feeling lately, but you’re as easy to miss as ever.
Kuroko: To be fair, you were completely absorbed in practicing, so it’s not that surprising.
Kagami: Yeah, I guess that’s true.
Kuroko: Anyway, you’re at school really early today, Kagami-kun. Morning practice doesn’t start for a while yet.
Kagami: Yeah, I just couldn’t sit still for some reason. What about you? You’re here pretty early yourself.
Kuroko: [laughs] I couldn’t sit still, either.
Kagami: [laughs] Alright then, let’s practice together!
Kuroko: Let’s go!
Kagami: [catching his breath] Wanna take a breather?
[they sit down for a break]
Kagami: Man, this really takes me back.
Kuroko: What do you mean?
Kagami: Remember the day we first met, when we played some one-on-one on the streetball court?
Kuroko: Of course.
Kagami: Honestly, I was a little freaked out when I found out how much you sucked.
Kuroko: I told you I never actually expected to win, didn’t I?
Kagami: That didn’t stop you from talking some major smack before we got started.
Kuroko: I knew you wouldn’t take me seriously if you knew how weak I was. I wanted to see you play, up close and personal.
Kagami: You might not look it, but you’ve got one hell of a competitive streak, don’t you?
Kuroko: [laughs] Thank you.
Kagami: That wasn’t a compliment!
Kuroko: Still, I’m glad you didn’t just brush me off.
Kagami: Well, I got to see your skills in action in the scrimmage we played the next day. I guess that game turned out to be the starting line for us as a team.
Kuroko: Yes. I knew I wanted to make the team at Seirin, defeat my former teammates from middle school, and become the best in Japan. But I couldn’t do it alone—I needed a light who could use my abilities as a shadow to their full extent. [laughs] Luckily for me, you showed up right on time, Kagami-kun.
Kagami: There’s got to be a more flattering way to phrase that!
Kuroko: Ah, that’s a good point. I’m truly grateful to have met you, and everyone at Seirin.
Kagami: [taken aback] Oh—yeah. The same goes for me. I decided I was gonna beat the Generation of Miracles and become the best in Japan, but I can honestly say there’s no way I could’ve made it this far by myself. I learned the hard way that it’s okay to ask for help when you hit a wall, and that basketball’s not a one-man game.
Kuroko: If we were struggling with something or feeling down, or whenever things got tough, our teammates always came to the rescue.
Kagami: Ain’t that the truth.
Kuroko: I love basketball even more now than I did when I started at Seirin. That’s why I’m so glad I was able to be a part of this team when we became the best in Japan.
Kagami: I know. I feel the same way. But you can’t possibly be ready to call it quits now, right, Kuroko?
Kuroko: Of course not. As long as we keep playing basketball, there will always be opportunities to take on strong teams. And we’re going to keep winning!
Kagami: [stands up] I bet every team we’ve faced is gonna get even stronger, so I can’t wait to play ‘em again! Wait a second… We beat Touou at the Winter Cup, but we lost to them at the Inter-High… That means we’re tied right now!
Kuroko: Not to mention that Aomine-kun has beat you handily in every one-on-one game you’ve played so far.
Kagami: Shut up! I’ll beat him one-on-one sooner or later!
Kuroko: In that case, we should get back to practicing.
Kagami: Yeah! Let’s play another point!
[gym door opens]
Kuroko: It looks like everyone’s here.
Kagami: Yikes, does that mean it’s already time for morning practice to start?
Kuroko: No, it’s still early. [laughs] I guess the whole team had the same idea we did.
Kagami: [laughs] That just means we can squeeze in some more practice time! Alright! Let’s get fired up, Kuroko!
