“A mother is the truest friend we have,when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us;when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
— Oikawa has a sense and doesn’t lack effort but when you compare him to the mass of talent named Kageyama, that’s two years younger than him, Oikawa is an efficient player but not a genius. I can say with confidence that, at this moment in time, the one who is a better setter… is Oikawa.
It’s not like he doesn’t make mistakes, and he’s quick to let taunts get to him, but… He’s the second-strongest after Azumane, and most importantly, his ability to perform when he’s cornered doesn’t deteriorate. That mental strength… Those are unmistakably… The qualities of an ace.
