Cover of The Weight Of Determination
Rakuzan’s Uncrowned Kings manage to defeat their respective marks. Izuki is also powerless against Akashi. Murasakibara comments that it’s impossible for Seirin to win now—Kuroko has lost his lack of presence; even if it does return, the gap is too great-in points and in strength. A miracle will not happen, and even if it does, they won’t win simply because Akashi is too strong.

Cover of I’ll Definitely Stop This Shot
Akashi starts by crushing Seirin’s two hopes—Hyuuga is benched when he has four fouls, and Kagami is unable to stop Akashi. Nevertheless, Kuroko desperately states that he wants to win with everyone, and he reenters the game. Seeing Kuroko’s determination, Kagami also regains his fighting spirit and reenters the Zone. Kuroko succeeds in overwriting Mayuzumi, shocking everyone. Still, Akashi continues to “use” Mayuzumi to disrupt Kagami’s line of sight. All of Seirin’s players work together to attack Rakuzan; however, because they lack a strong shooter, they are unable to close the point gap. Nonetheless, Koganei’s efforts succeed in helping Hyuuga see through Mibuchi’s techniques, and he also reenters the game. Meanwhile, Mayuzumi notices that Akashi is acting strangely.

Cover of However Many Times
After being defeated by Kuroko and Kagami’s teamwork, Akashi’s flawed self breaks. This allows the real Akashi to return (both of his eyes are bright red once again). He acknowledges Kuroko’s efforts, but he insists that Rakuzan won’t lose. Proving his strength, Akashi helps his entire team enter the Zone. However, Kagami is able to open the second door to the Zone. There Kagami meets the gatekeeper-Kuroko-as well as the rest of the team. Because of this, Seirin is able to unite completely as one, and they close the point gap. This is the power of Kuroko’s basketball. In the last seconds, Kuroko gets the ball. Determined to stop him, Akashi jumps to block him. However, Kuroko states that he’s a shadow—Kagami is the light who will score. After Seirin wins the Winter Cup, Akashi tells Kuroko he’d like to play again. Overjoyed by his return, Kuroko tells him he’ll play as many times as he likes. In the final scene, a photo in Kuroko’s locker shows the Generation of Miracles, Momoi, and Kuroko are friends once again.
