Meanwhile, Central makes its move, beginning a full-scale purge of anyone daring to resist them!

Soma has a lot of positive energy which most of us wish we can have that kind of strong mentality in us - the determination to do what is believe to be right and the ‘never give up’ attitude even facing a stronger and more powerful opponent. Despite the winner is already decided before the competition, Soma’s level of confidence that he has for himself and his courage to strive until the end are remarkably impressive. It seems there are a lot of positive attitude we should learn from Soma which we can apply into our lives.
