Buzzer Beat
Episode 2 Preview

On air 20th July 2009

Kamiya Naoki (Yamashita Tomohisa) and Shirakawa Riko (Kitagawa Keiko) shared a friendly conversation without even knowing each others names. It began at the park where Naoki went to practice his shoots, by chance meeting Riko who was practicing on her violin. Riko had just moved into the apartment next to the park, where she is rooming with her close friend Ebina Mai (Kanjiya Shihori).

One night, Naoki's girlfriend Nanami Natsuki (Aibu Saki) visits his home. As always, Naoki's mother, Kamiya Makiko (Maya Miki) and his sister Kamiya Yuri (Oomasa Aya) welcome her warmly. As they are enjoying their dinner, Natsuki's phone rings. The call is from Naoki's team-mate Yoyogi Ren (Kaneko Nobuaki).

At around the same time, Riko and Mai are invited by Naoki's JC ARCS coach Kawasaki Tomoya (Ito Hideaki) out for a drink. Kawasaki brings along the captain of the ARCS team Utsunomiya Toru (Nagai Masaru).

Mai, who knows that Kawasaki is interested in Riko, takes an interest in Utsunomiya the moment she sees him. However Riko says that according to Kawasaki, there are rumours floating around about Utsunomiya. When Mai learns of this...

Naoki and the ARCS get themselves ready for the next season. Before practice resumes the week after, Naoki, Hatano Shuji (Mizobata Junpei), Moriguchi Shuto (Aoki Munetaka) and the rest of the players visit a childrens' basketball class so that they can be filmed and the footage used for the new season's player introductions and such. They guide the elementary school children and Naoki turns out to be a big hit with the children.

Meanwhile, Kawasaki invites Riko out and for the first time, they meet, just the two of them...


Looking forward to that last bit!
