Let's Finish This is the forty-nineth chapter of the Kuroko no Basuke manga.


Seirin is unable to stop any of Aomine’s impossible shooting styles—the shots defy common sense. Midorima comments that in every sport, certain styles and plays are defined so that the sport can be played; therefore, it makes sense that what’s defined can also be countered. However, the trump card of the Generation of Miracles, Daiki Aomine, is limitless-an unstoppable scorer.

Nevertheless, Kagami refuses to give up. He jumps high once again to block Aomine. Aomine mockingly acknowledges that Kagami can jump high. But he instantly proves that it’s meaningless against him. Everyone is shocked as they watch Aomine shoot with his body almost parallel to the ground. After he scores, Kagami admits to himself that Aomine is too unpredictable; he can’t even match Aomine’s speed. Therefore, he tries to score by jumping higher. Aomine easily knocks the ball away. He tells Kagami jumping high isn’t enough; Kagami is too slow, so he’ll be taking the ball.

In the next play Kagami chases after Aomine, but when Aomine is about to shoot, Kagami accidentally fouls him. Unfazed, Aomine adds “insult to injury” by scoring by tossing the ball effortlessly from behind his back. Seirin is completely shocked and helpless. They can’t believe that Kagami isn’t able to do anything to counter Aomine although he was able to succeed against Kise and Midorima.

After scoring, Aomine tells Kuroko to “come out”. Kagami isn’t enough; he wants to see the true power of the new light and shadow.
