Characters in Order of AppearanceEdit
Eiichiro asks Takuma to be his opponent for the practice match which Takuma accepts.
Two months left until the Kanagawa Junior Tennis Competition, Eiichiro continues to work hard during practices. Whenever they lose, one will have a penalty. While Eiichiro is doing his penalty (20 push ups), Coach Aoi approaches him and tells Eiichiro to enjoy having penalty. Coach Aoi gives suggestions but ends up telling Eiichiro to find his own way of enjoying penalties.
In the afternoon, Eiichiro and the others have a practice match but Eiichiro was not called. Coach Aoi tells Eiichiro that Eiichiro has to request Takuma to be his opponent. Eiichiro then approaches Takuma to ask something but Takuma also wants to ask something too. Takuma asks Eiichiro regarding Eiichiro's confession to Natsu. Before Takuma leaves the place, Eiichiro tries to convince Takuma to become his opponent in a tennis match. Takuma finally accepts Eiichiro's request as he, too, wants to play with him ... but with a (very) mad expression.
