Desperate Situation (絶体絶命 Zettai Zetsumei?) is the twenty-third episode of the Area no Kishi anime. It aired on June 9, 2012.
Kota is subbed in to match Onimaru's speed and to provide another weapon on offense. However one slip up allows Onimaru to center the ball from the sides, and a rebound shot puts Yoin up 1:2. Yoin begins playing total defense, but the middle shots of Enoshima cause them problems. Kakeru appears to slip behind them, but Asuka is actually marking him. Asuka intercepts a pass intended for Kakeru and puts Yoin up 1:3. Kakeru begins to despair, but his heart is slowly beating faster. Could this truly be the sign of hope for Enoshima and a rally?
