Last Pass (ラストパス Rasuto Pasu?) is the fourth episode of the Area no Kishi anime. It aired on January 28, 2012.
Kakeru is unable to recall what happened when he kicked the ball, leading Nana to suspect Suguru's heart is the cause. At the hospital, Suguru's sport counselor, Mine Ayaka, knowing that Nana secretly overheard about the reansplant, tasks Nana to observe Kakeru for any Suguru-like behavior from Kakeru. That night, Kakeru learns that the masked stranger is Nana and the heart transplant he received from Suguru. Distraught and confused, Kakeru runs back to the house and into his late brother's room. He finds and reads through Suguru's dairy, detailing his brother's frustration with the forwards in Japan's national team and how he desires Kakeru to fill that position.
The next day, Kakeru tells Nana he will enroll in Enoshima High where Ryuichi Araki, a midfielder with skills equal to Suguru, is located.
