Roar is the 15th episode of the Nationals OVA and the 2nd of the Shitenhōji arc. It originally aired on June 22, 2007.
The opening song is "Kakaeta Kiseki" by Aozu and the ending is "Sankyuu!!" by Cap to Bin.
The Singles 3 match between Fuji and Shiraishi is played. Fuji's Triple Counters fail against Shiraishi's perfect "Bible" tennis, and everything seems to go downhill for Seigaku. As the match moves on, Fuji evolves the Triple Counters and also produces a new final counter called Hecatoncheires no Monban (Gate Keeper of Hecatonchires), which prevents the returned ball from going over the net. However, in the end, Shiraishi's cunning mind finds a way to hit the ball over the net, bringing the game to a tie break. Things go evenly until Fuji lobs the ball out of desperation. Despite all the effort of both players, the point is decided by a centimeter. It is noted in the following episode when Kawamura says he has never seen Fuji in such a state before.
