Shojo Fight, Volume 9

The team is headed for the local winter tournament, which decides whether they qualify for the big spring championships—but their new lineup forces Manabu and Shino to tackle serious questions. Realizing how difficult the road is ahead for her, Manabu resolves to give it her all—but she's soon visited by Takako Yui. She warns her about Seiji High player Maya Amemiya, a rival with an odd fixation on Neri, and it isn't long before Manabu declares war on this interloper!
