With Iyona's great plays, Nanno Grade School won the semi-final
match and made it into the finals of the prefecture volleyball
championship tournament. After the game, Honmaru went up to Iyona
and said that they will win the championship for sure. But Iyona
said that they couldn't. She pointed to the other semi-final match
where the Kusuda triplet sisters (each 203cm tall even though they
are grade schoolers) of Higashino Grade School were playing. Then
Honmaru remembered what had happened last year. The Kusuda sisters'
powerful spikes kept injuring the Nanno players. They ran out of
players, and Marue came to fill Rui's place. But Higashino won.
[Marue = Honmaru in his girl form
When the Kusuda sisters spotted Iyona looking at them, they showed
off their new secret weapon, "the Kusuda triple attack". All three
sisters jumped up together, swirled around, and one of them hit the
powerful spike. Iyona said that the attack was too fast and that
she couldn't see the ball at all.
Iyona was training for the final match by herself. Honmaru and Taru
were hiding and watching Iyona. Then Honmaru couldn't stand
watching it any more and ran up to her. He told her to call him
"coach". Then Iyona smiled [the most beautiful smile on TV now.
Honmaru, Taru, and Iyona went to the gym to train. Honmaru asked
Taru to give him something to make him move fast. Taru gave Honmaru
some "hayashi-rice". Honmaru ate it and started hitting quick
spikes to Iyona. The spiked was so fast and hard that it knocked
Iyona down, but Honmaru kept spiking at Iyona. Iyona was down and
couldn't get up. Honmaru yelled and said that he will keep spiking
the ball at her. Then Rui came and said that she was a member of
the volleyball team too. But when Honmaru fired some spikes at Rui,
Rui ran off saying that it hurt too much.
Then Iyona got up for more. Iyona was getting closer to the ball as
she was getting used to the speed. Rui was sitting and watching on
the side. Taru gave some "hormone-ga" to Rui, so she would be able
to keep up with the training. [The "hormone-ga" turns a boy into a
girl, and a girl into a boy.
After Rui drank it, she got mad at Taru, because she remembered
that it had caused a lot of trouble before. Then Rui thought more
about the hormone-ga, and realized that Marue was Honmaru.
Honmaru was still practicing with Iyona. Then Taru used a metal
spring to hit the ball. The ball knocked Iyona down because of the
power. Then they took a rest. Iyona wanted to feel like the spring
so that she can hit a powerful spike. So Taru took out his
"kimochi". [The "kimochi" was something that makes you feel just
like something else, when you rub the mochi to it and eat it. After
eating the kimochi, Iyona's body coiled like a spring when she went
to hit her spike. Her spike was so hard that it dented the gym
Honmaru and Iyona continued the training.
The day of the prefecture finals came. The Kusuda sisters used
their secret weapon. Iyona saw the ball and went to receive the
ball. But the ball hit Iyona in the body. Then Iyona said that she
knew what the attack was. But the Kusuda sisters said that Iyona
could not break their attack.
The Kusuda sisters kept attacking and scoring points. Iyona knew
that she had to receive the ball, otherwise her teammates would get
injured. But the Nanno team ran out of players again. Honmaru said
that he would use the hormone-ga. Then Honmaru realized that
everyone knew about Taru's magic now. So he couldn't turn himself
into Marue. Everyone would figure it out, and they would get mad at
him for everything Marue had done in the past. Then Honmaru saw
Iyona crying. Honmaru drank the hormone-ga, and Marue went to the
The match continued. Iyona began to receive the Kusuda attack. Then
Iyona used her "special spring attack", to blast the ball by the
Kusuda sisters. Nanno won the match 15-13.
