 Overview Edit

Finally after five days at their respective training camps, the oddball combination have reunited. Kageyama asks Hinata what he has been doing the past five days and he replies saying he was the ball boy which surprises him. They start passing a ball back and forth while talking about their experiences, Kageyama talks about Hoshiumi and how he could play better and jump higher than Hinata. The other Karasuno members start arriving for practice and Kageyama tells Hinata that he needs to jump even higher from now on. They start practicing and Yachi explains how they have been focusing on serves while they were away. Kageyama goes to do a serve and is shock to see Hinata get in a perfect position to receive the ball only to be knocked back, but his teammates can tell that he has improved a lot during the camp. After practice, Hinata goes up to Kageyama and ask what he meant by "jumping even higher". Until now, Hinata has been jumping without really thinking and Kageyama tells him to work on a technique to jump higher.
