Concept: an episode where the team goes to a planet of shapeshifters and an evil shapeshifter manages to get Keith alone, knock him out, and steal his identity. Shapeshifter goes back to the team and tries to bullshit their way through being Keith until they can steal a lion. Everyone lowkey thinks Keith’s acting weird but they figure he had a bad night or something so they decide to leave it alone for now. But then the team is getting ready for their mission and the shapeshifter tries to be all black paladin-y (because apparently the kid is the black paladin?? even though he’s wearing red?? what’s with this team’s color coding smh) and only gets as far as saying “alright team, here’s the plan-” before they hear the terrifying sound of four bayards powering up behind them.
I don’t want Bokuto’s setter to be anyone other than the person who understands him best. I don’t want Fukurodani to lose their heart.
I don’t want Kenma to be left behind by the one person he plays volleyball for. I don’t want Nekoma to huddle before a game and realize they’re waiting for a nerdy pep talk that isn’t coming.
I don’t want Seijoh to feel lost without their senpais’ antics. I don’t want Iwaizumi to constantly worry about Oikawa pushing himself too hard or injuring himself again or beating himself up over not being good enough. I don’t want Oikawa to try and toss to Iwaizumi because he’s in a pinch and realize too late that the toss was too low for his new team’s taller ace.
I don’t want Asahi to crumble without Noya to support him. I don’t want Kageyama to look for the bench during a game and suddenly realize he doesn’t have Suga to lean on, to compete with, to be guided by. I don’t want Ennoshita to feel like no matter how hard he tries he’ll never be as good a captain as Daichi. I don’t want Daichi, Suga, and Asahi to leave the team they believed in from the start, the team they poured their heart and sweat and souls and tears into, the team that is as great as it is because those three never gave up.
