Because of Yazawa’s death, Mitsuyoshi Anzai has transformed dramatically from the rigorous “White-haired Devil” to the “White-haired Buddha with a softer personality.” Sakuragi refers to him as “Oyaji” and has a habit of jiggling the fat in his chin and belly when he’s excited, which irritates the others, especially Mitsui, who thinks it’s rude. Anzai, on the other hand, appears to be unconcerned about this and has not disciplined Sakuragi for his actions. During the first Inter-High game against Miuradai High School, Anzai punished the four players (Mitsui, Miyagi, Sakuragi, and Rukawa) who were part of the fight against Mitsui’s gang by keeping them on the bench.
“I didn’t want to put senseless pressure on everyone or affect the morale ! Because no matter who the opponent is, the most important part is still our own selves.”Mitsuyoshi Anzai
“For an inadequate person… The path to reach a higher level… He must admit his poorness which is the first step.”Mitsuyoshi Anzai
“When you give up, that’s when the game ends.”Mitsuyoshi Anzai
“I wanted to watch you keep having this perfect game you were having… It’s like losing our team guide. It would have been just a little more, it’s a life time regret to take you out now.”Mitsuyoshi Anzai
“Until the very end, never lose hope. It’s when you give up that the match is over.”Mitsuyoshi Anzai
