That's why I fucking love Teppei. He's my favorite character that's not a part of the GoM. You have to respect the dude after watching this episode. He was such a badass. Standing up for his team. I won't do any spoilers to people who still want to watch it and didn't have the chance to so I'll just add a tiny little thing. The ting I most respect him for was the part when he said: that's what I came back for.
I also really like Teppei cause I can connect with him. He reminds me of myself in many ways. For example I'm also recovering from an injury for the past month or two and I'm also playing as a center. It's unusable for a center to have a good passing sense. Some of my coaches even said that my game sense is better than the point guards on our team. However I can't play as a point guard. I'm some sort of a hidden card. I mean one time on the team I never get to dribble, cause lets face it as a center I shouldn't dribble that much. Both of our point guards had a foul trouble. So I replaced them as a point gaurd for a minute or two. I can't say I was good like them cause it's the complete opposite of my position, but I was decent. According to my coach. Well I ended up from talking about myself instead of Kuroko no basuke. Well that what happens when I can relate to a character.
