Throwback to Haikyu!! Episode 1
As long as the game has not ended, either side may still win. If the score is extremely unbalanced, it will remain so if we give up. But if we continue fighting, there is a possibility it may change for the better.
If we continue, there is a chance to win.
If we give up, there is no chance at all.
If you win, you are a victor.
If you lose, but persevered till the end, you are also a victor, because you did not admit defeat.
In a fight, the battle is between you and the other person. But it is also a battle between you and yourself.
If you are weak but did not give up, you will have lost to the person, but won against yourself. If you are weak and gave up, you will have lost utterly, because you could not even defeat your own self.
