Midorima reunites with Kise

Midorima makes his debut

Midorima starts to talk about "Man Proposes, God Disposes", meaning he always brings his lucky item everyday. Kise said to him he should talk to Kuroko instead and Midorima replies it's not necessary since Kuroko's blood type is A and his blood type is B; therefore, they don't get along. Takao complains because Midorima left him in a traffic jam, and it was embarrassing. Midorima's purpose is to see their match but he apologizes beforehand. Midorima said that Kise should give up his revenge already.

Seirin goes to the hospital to check Kuroko's condition due to his injury. The doctor says he's going to be all right so there's no need to worry. Seirin decides to eat somewhere nearby with a cheap price, but they all lack money. Riko notices a restaurant which offers a Steak Bomber. They all can't eat well due to the steak's size and mass. Luckily, Kagami has a glutton appetite and ate all the steaks, saving them from paying ¥10,000. When Kuroko leaves, he meets Kise outside, stating he wants to talk about something.
