Baseball was Eijun's first love. When Takashima-san scouted him for Seidou and he experienced for the first time the excitement of a strong battery, he thought life couldn't get any better - despite the bittersweet feeling of leaving his friends behind and not living up to his promise of taking all of them to Koshien. So he set off onto his next big adventure, stars in his eyes and excitement filling his body to the point where he just could not contain it.
What he did not realise was how naive it was of him to think that his dreams of forming the ultimate battery with Miyuki (and accessorily become Seidou's ace) would be. Of course, Eijun is a hard worker and so he works and works for it. He improves drastically but somehow it is never enough. He just cannot get what he is yearning for.
After the rain there is always sunshine, or so they say. But just how much rain does it take for the sun to finally give up? For Eijun, the match against Ichidai Sankou was the one-too-many cold shower that (almost) extinguished his sunshine.
How does he go on after that?
