Clash! Tiger and Hawk!! (
While taking a break from practice, Inazuma Japan receives letters from their friends and families from Japan. Everyone is happy, except for Toramaru. For some reason, he's been acting strangely after he received his letter, and lose focus in practice. He even lashes out at everyone during dinner. Endou decides to go talk to him, but to everyone's surprise, Tobitaka wants to go instead. How will he solve this problem? And why was Toramaru so agitated?
Firstly, after practicing, the Inazuma Japan members receive letters from their friends and family from their hometown. They received some letters from Midorikawa, and surprisingly a really long letter from Saginuma to which they just showed a funny expression when they read it. Also Tobitaka received a note and photo of his friends encouraging him to which he smiled. Finally, Toramaru received a letter but he looked pale when he read it. During the practice, he couldn't concentrate to which the other members suggested him to concentrate to which he answered with an angry reply and stormed off. At night, Endou decided to talk to him about his problem, surprisingly, Tobitaka said he'll talk to Toramaru instead. As a response to Toramaru's sudden change of attitude, Tabitaka challenges Toramaru to a dribbling contest: they will cross three times, and if Tobitaka is able to steal the ball from him even once, then Toramaru will have to apologize. That is exactly what happened, but before they go back inside for his apology, Tobitaka cooks a meal for him as a treat. Apparently, Toramaru was still worried about the letter he received and was surprised that Tobitaka came to talk to him, to which Toramaru stated that Tobitaka would not understand his situation though after some talking, Toramaru stated what the letter stated. His mother's sickness is worse than before and Toramaru is feeling guilty because he is far away from his mother. Tobitaka gave some advice and Toramaru smiled and wipes his tears, then goes inside to say sorry to the team. The next day, Toramaru learns a new hissatsu called RC Shoot, based on the toy car that his mother bought him.
- Toramaru's mother was shown that her sickness has gotten worse than before.
