It's New Years Day. Daichi is on edge due to the incoming Spring Inter-high, but a day of spending time with his teammates and friends helps him calm down. The team has arrived in Tokyo for nationals. After getting some practice in at a local gymnasium, the team settles down at their lodging, where each member spends the last night ahead of the big day in his or her own ways. The day after, Karasuno reunites with Nekoma, Fukurōdani, and some other familiar faces at nationals.
