I'll Win Even if it Kills Me (死んでも勝つっスけど, Shindemo Katsussu Kedo) is the twenty-second episode of the Kuroko no Basuke anime.


Shutoku wins all 3 practice matches against Seirin, but all the games were played without Kagami and the scores differ by less than ten points. Kagami learns his jumping power has dramatically improved. Midorima tells him this is only half the answer, and challenges him to a one-on-one match. Midorima wins by forcing Kagami to jump off his right foot, where he only has the ability to dunk. Kagami realises that he must improve his ball handling in his left hand and learn to win aerial battles in order to beat the Generation of Miracles. Kuroko comes up with the idea to master his drive in addition to passes. The rest of the team also train hard. When the camp finishes, before heading to the station, Seirin make a detour to watch the Inter-high quarterfinal match between Touou Academy and Kaijo. Kise is determined to defeat Aomine despite never having won against him in a one-on-one game.
