SynopsisEditWith Iwasawa gone, Yui suggests she take Iwasawa's place as the vocalist, but the other SSS members do not agree. Yuri suggests that the SSS illegally participate in the upcoming baseball tournament and any SSS team which does worse than the NPC students will receive a punishment worse than death. Hinata starts with recruiting Otonashi, followed by Yui, Shiina, and Noda after failing to get several other more athletic members that already had teams. With still four players needed, Yui gets three NPC girls, who are fans of Yui's, to join their team. During the first round of the tournament, the SSS teams beat their NPC counterparts, but soon each one falls to Angel's team made up of members of the school baseball team until only Hinata's team is left. As the game is nearing its end, Hinata recalls how he missed a fly ball in a similar baseball game in life, and Otonashi believes that Hinata will disappear if they win the game. Just as Hinata is about to catch a pop fly and win the game, however, Yui comes from behind and puts Hinata in a swatstika grapple hold, and Angel's team wins as a result.
Hinata: Otonashi, I really need you man.
Otonashi: You sure you're not gay?
Hinata: NO! I NEED YOU FOR THE TEAM!
Yuri : They'll win at this rate. Not bad, guys, and they're even playing fair. Have we ever let things go smoothly for poor little Angel? Serves her right! (giggles) (laughs maniacally)
Yusa : Yurippe, you sound like a villain. (Yuri is still laughing evilly.)
Otonashi: Bet he's already taken.
Hinata: Don't worry, he's waited for me. You see, we're like buzzum buddies! Hehe, it's kinda embarassing.
Matsushita IV: Uh, about that, I'm already in Takeyama's team.
Matsushita IV: I didn't have a reason to turn him down.
Hinata: Why'd you do it? I believed in you so much man!
Matsushita IV: Well he said he'd give me all the beef udon tickets he gets from now on. (background music slows down)
Yui: You need more teammates right? I'd be a big asset!
Hinata: An asset? *thinks outloud* No, wait, if a ball hit her dead in the face, the pitcher would get disqualified. You're a big hitter! Perfect! You're in!
Yui: You sure your brain didn't melt and ooze out of your nose? *jump-kicks Hinata in the head*
Hinata: OWW! You little.. I'm your upper classmen!
Yui: Excuse me, what I meant to ask was did your brain melt and slip out through your nose?
Hinata: *kicks Yui in the face* HELL NO!
Yui: Sir, that hurt...
Hinata: Quit complaining, I'm hurting too!
Otonashi: Hinata! Don't catch it Hinata. I-I DON'T WANT YOU TO DISAPPEAR!
