Soon, after certain events, Hanamichi is left with two unwavering thoughts: “I hate basketball,” and “I desperately need a girlfriend.”

One day, a girl named Haruko Akagi approaches him without any knowledge of his troublemaking and asks him if he likes basketball.

Hanamichi immediately falls head over heels in love with her, blurting out a fervent affirmative.
