To Win!
It's Over!!

It's Do or Die!! is the one hundred and sixty-seventh chapter of the Kuroko no Basuke manga.


Seeing Kiyoshi, Coach Araki thinks that she knew Riko was up to something. Himuro also thinks that Murasakibara broke Kiyoshi mentally and physically, but he isn’t called the “Iron Heart” for nothing. Murasakibara irritably asks Kiyoshi how many times does he have to break him—Kiyoshi is too tough. Kiyoshi replies that that is his strength.

Kiyoshi then turns to his teammates. Hyuuga states that Kiyoshi kept them waiting for a long time. Kiyoshi answers that the game isn’t over; they are just in a little “pinch”.

Off court, Kasamatsu states that this the moment of truth. Seirin can’t let Yosen score anymore, and they have to close the gap. Kise, Aomine, and the crowd watches as it begins.

Murasakibara and Himuro repeat their previously play, but surprising both of them, Kiyoshi faces Himuro. Himuro states that only Kagami can stop him even if Kiyoshi does possess the Right of Postponement. Kiyoshi replies that Himuro is strong since he managed to even fool his own teammates with his fake—however, he knew he would lose to Himuro; that is why he chose to lose. Kiyoshi displays to an astounded Himuro that his decision even allows shorter players to stop the Mirage Shot as Hyuuga knocks the ball out of its path. Getting the ball, Kuroko passes to Izuki. Izuki passes to Kagami who shoots, but he misses. Kiyoshi grabs the rebound and passes to Hyuuga who scores a three pointer. Seirin ecstatically celebrates while Yosen is stunned. With 20 seconds left in the game, the score is 72-71—Seirin is finally one point behind. Stunned, Momoi states that Seirin will win if they make this shot. Watching Murasakibara, Aomine replies if they can. On the court, purple sparks are coming out of Murasakibara’s eyes.
