Plot Edit

The East-West War Arc Edit

She went to Shimizu Keijo Stadium to participate in a yearly event held by Suruga and their rival, Setouchi Keijo Training School, known as the "East-West War" to prove which one is better between the two. On the day of the race, Suruga lost the first match, but they won the second match. Thus the outcome would depend on the third match. She entered the match along with her teammates, consisting of Tae Yokosugi, Hikari Muromachi, and Maya Sakashiro. While Setouchi's third group was represented by Rin Rokudo, Saya Kogatana, Hanabi Kawai, and Nozomi Kaminashi.

Before the match started, she told Maya that she didn't think their participation would be needed. While gazing upon Setouchi's students, she claimed to be Suruga's best, and stated that Setouchi would definitely lose. As the match started, Rin tried to attack Hikari, but Midori protected her by blocking Rin's attack. She told Hikari to keep focus.[1]

A short time later, Midori engaged in a fight with Rin. Hikari then performed her trick, blinding Hanabi and Rin, while both of them vanished. Hikari and Midori suddenly ambushed Hanabi and Rin from behind.[2] However, Hanabi and Rin immediately bounced back and countered them. Hanabi then managed to figure out that Hikari was just reflecting the sunlight to blind them. Despite this, by teaming up with Midori, they still managed to corner Setouchi.

As Rin decided to handle Hikari, Hanabi attacked Midori. Rin then managed to remove the oil on Hikari's chest, thus Hikari could no longer use her trick. Midori approached and told Hikari to stop playing around. Hikari and Midori then performed their collaboration technique, "Hipp Train". By inserting herself inside Midori's swimsuit, they claimed that they were no longer two separated players, since they have been fused.

Hikari and Midori began attacking Rin, and managed to corner her. They stated that their damage has increased. But soon, Hanabi came to help Rin, blocking Hikari and Midori. Despite this, Hanabi was barely able to hold them. However, Yokosugi was suddenly sent flying, bumping into Hikari and Midori. Surprised, Hikari got confused. But soon, Saya Kogatana introduced herself as the one who did it. Not impressed by Saya's introduction, Hikari splitted herself from Midori, asking Midori to handle Hanabi and Rin.

Hikari tried to get rid of Saya, but Hikari was defeated instead. Surprised, Midori showed her concern towards Hikari. However, as she was caught off guard, Hanabi and Rin assaulted her, defeating Midori.[3] Later, Yokosugi was also defeated. Maya continued the final match. However, Maya was ultimately defeated by Nozomi, thus Suruga lost the eleventh East-West War competition.[4] Later that night at the feast, Hikari and Midori approached Nozomi, congratulating her. Hikari then asked about Setouchi's training methods. But soon, Hanabi interrupted her, asking Hikari to introduce her to Suruga's male students. Midori stated that they couldn't do that. However, Mio Kusakai suddenly approached her, teasing Midori. Mio asked Midori to tell her name.[5]
