Ryoma and Oishi (along with Atobe Kirihara and Niou) have a chance meeting. Oishi tells him: "The coach intends to make you an All-Japan Rep!" Echizen says "Sorry, but I'm an All-American Rep" and leaves. His eyes change to look like when he is in Ten'imuhou.
Oishi returns to the hotel and reports the situation to the other middle school members It's an overwhelming response that everyone "really wants to battle Echizen".
- Fuji: "For him there really is no such thing as borders between nations. Defeat the guy you want to defeat. That's always been his stance since even long ago."

- Duke: "It seems he really wants to take you on, Boss...heh"
- Byoudouin: "Hmph...Let's attain the world, Oni"
