1. Most likely Subaru's rival Ryuichi's cousin

2. Who knows as volume 11 didn't describe her skills in detail

3. It's going to depend on the pace and the number of episodes of season 2, but if going with the pace of season 1 with the same episode count I think there's a good chance we will see the 5th graders match as the "final battle" of season 2.

How can she be Subaru's rival unless she is self proclaimed one because she is outclass by Tomoka and isn't Subaru's rival a guy who is a all-rounder type which I forget the name.

There is a battle between the 5th grader coached by Aoi and 6th graders?

Subaru's rival's name is Ryuuichi, he had a young female cousin who played against Tomoka on a street game. The one playing against Tomoka in the picture is probably her, that's why I said she is Subaru's rival Ryuuichi's cousin.

And Ryuuichi is a forward, not an all-rounder type.

I didn't understand much the sentence

Is subaru the all rounder type and Ryuuchi is the power forward type/offensive player?

Hmm. Okay then. Houko says the girl in the pic is the cousin of Subaru's rival Ryuichi.

And Subaru is this series' version of Steve Nash while Ryuichi is this series' version of LeBron James.

So the Takenaka twins strike me as point forwards at the moment, but when I tried to write up a roster list, I saw that the only positions left on the bench are PG and PF. Mimi would be the reserve SF for Tomoka, Kagetsu the reserve C for Airi, and Masami the reserve SG for Hinata.

I still can't differentiate the twins yet since they're identical and have the same play style (or so I thought). Although, that fact can be useful for playing mind games on their opponents.

In the pictures, Tsubaki's hair is more dark-colored and she wears black socks, while Hiiragi's hair is more light-colored and she wears white socks. Not sure if it's just the way the pages were scanned or Tsubaki's hair really is dark-colored.

Can anyone help me out on this? My roster list is almost done, I only need confirmation for the bench PG and PF positions.

And I still feel pretty bad for Masami since there's no 3-point line.

As the latest novel has no official position for the Takenaka twins, you won't get any responses until the author says what they are going to play.

Also the girl on the left of the picture is Airi and yes she looks different to her anime counterpart.

EDIT: The picture is of the 6th graders at Subaru's birthday party. From L to R Airi, Saki, Tomoka, Hinata, Maho. And yes they don't quite look like their anime counterpart except Saki and Maho.

Here is a crazy theory I thought of while comparing SD and RKB.

Spoiler for Crazy Theory:


Remember that this is only speculation, and in due time the author might (or already have) release information which could confirm the validity of this theory.

That theory seems pretty interesting, except...

So my theory failed, huh? Oh well, but I thought it was interesting, though.

Say, how were the newly-formed team (the main five + the second unit) getting along? And how our poor little friend Natsuhi took the fact that her twin sisters were joining Subaru's harem basketball team?

EDIT: With the 10-man team already complete, Keishin can now compete in tournament play. So while waiting for a possibly inevitable Tournament Arc, I would like to know if anyone has (fan fic) ideas about what kind of teams Keishin would face? Because really, Suzuridani isn't the only elementary girls' team out there.

I have three suggestions for possible tournament opponents:

1. Team with strong inside game,
2. Tomoka's old grade school, bonus points if they got better after Tomoka left;
3. Team with strong, talented roster that rivals even Suzuridani.

1. How were the 5th graders recruited? Because I'm guessing Mimi through Subaru's father, Kagetsu through Hina, the twins through Natsuhi, and Masami through Saki. I wanted to confirm this.

2a. In the anime, Manaka Nobidome refers to Tomoka as the Keishin's team captain. So is it really confirmed that Tomoka really is the (de facto) team captain, despite Maho doing most of the recruitment of the other members of the main five (Saki, Airi, and Hinata)?

2b. In modern sport, it has become a fairly common practice to have more than one team captain, and thus they are called "co-captains". So does it make sense that Tomoka and Maho are the co-captains of Keishin?

Whoa, it's been a while, but I think this topic is pretty much dead in the water.

I think Vol.12 will be released in February. So what can we expect?

Vol. 12 just went on sale yesterday in Japan. Akibablog has some of the illustrations and if you follow the readers' impressions you can get some spoilers.

Spoiler:


So looks like the volume is pretty exciting and ends with a massive cliff hanger, can't wait to get my hands on it.

So unless it's a double-elimination tournament, then why does Keishin have to be matched with Suzuridani right in the first round? Most hero teams usually face their rival team in the Semifinals or the Finals.

Also, are there any other teams participating in the tournament?

It's actually surprising to see the rival team in the first round of the tournament. Rival teams in sports stories usually face the hero teams in at least the semi-final round (or quarterfinals if the hero team is such a massive underdog).
