Re-Main Episode 7 Spoilers
In episode 6, Minato’s team changes their strategy, and instead of relying heavily on one person, they come up with a plan that allows them to attack in unpredictable ways. They aim to register their first official win at the July prefectures. Minato even buys a new phone just to record him playing so he can later study himself and make adjustments in his technique.
Later they have a sleepover in which they confess their secrets. While Shuugo talks about his parent’s divorce, Minato opens up about his fear of losing the memories that he made after his accident when his old memories return. He expresses his gratitude for working with such a great bunch of players who have helped him find his purpose in life.
But for some strange reason, Yoshiharu remains very quiet and zoned out the entire time. When he suddenly disappears, the team suspects that he is going to commit suicide. But when confronted, Yoshiharu explains that he was just sorry that he was letting the team down. Minato suddenly has a realization that Yoshiharu can shoot really well if he is a bit more aggressive and shouts while throwing.
When they test his theory, it turns out that Yoshiharu is naturally gifted and can shoot really well. In episode 8, Minato’s water polo team will come up with a much-improved strategy to outsmart their opponents. With the upcoming matches, they will work on their stamina since they won’t get time to rest and relax after their game.
