I'm not sure if I've ever sworn quite so much during an episode of anime as I did this week. As Karasuno and Shiratorizawa go into the final set of their qualifying game, the stakes couldn't be higher: not only is this it in terms of chances for the third-years, but this set only runs to fifteen points – ten less than the norm. That means that whoever gets the lead in the beginning is more likely to win the whole thing, if only because there's less time to turn things around.
