After racing in Shibuya in front of a huge crowd and cameras, Kukizato is getting tons of attention from his classmates; including his old soccer teammate, Takekawa, who hasn’t spoken to him much since he lost his leg and stopped playing soccer. His mother finds out what’s being going on and Kukizato joins the school’s track and field team.
Kukizato is finding he enjoys being around people again despite the coldness of Takekawa. I can understand Takekawa not understanding how to talk to a friend after such an accident but it looks like Kukizato isn’t giving it much thought. He’s just enjoying having something to do other than sit around and regret losing his leg. 4 out of 5.
