Ookiku Furikabutte - Ren Mihashi / Pitcher / No.1
Back then, he was treated as though he didn’t exist and felt like an invisible man. But on the mound you can’t start until the pitcher throws. While standing on the mound, you know that you truly matter.
If he gave up the mound, his essence would disappear.
Despite being bound by various contradictions and self doubt, and even while becoming a black sheep, Mihashi never let go of the mound during middle school. But he just said he’d give it up! If he still feels like he belongs here even if he gives up the mound, that’s great.
Well, it’s all just speculation, I guess.
