Nekketsu Kōkō Dodgeball B, known in the English marketing as Super Dodge Ball (The Gift of Habana in TV airings) is a full hour television specials to celebrate the sixth year since the show was on production in 2006 and aired in early 2007.

The special is a parody of the 1987 arcade game, Super Dodge Ball, even sporting some of the music and sounds. The special features many interactive songs in karaoke style and many animation styles in cel-animation laserdisc format, commonly found in arcade games or DVD-port discs.

The episode, before beginning, features the animation appearance of Frankie Muniz talking about the show's progressive while showing five clips of the first five episodes of the show's first series, The AnimeLand.


A worldwide dodgeball championship is on the trail and so Hiro Sohma enters as the captain for the AnimeLand team. The team has to go up against the team Camp Kidney to see which camp will represent the United States. Now, since Camp Anime has won, they will be held with the world cup and will face against other regions: England, Iceland (Germany), Mexico, China, Africa, Saudi Arabia and Japan (the hardest).

Another sub-plot is that a man named Shado Gray decided to pull off the color from the background and to make Trixie his wife, even during the Junk Yard Grand Prix where Speed is entering the race this time. The plot reveals that Speed can play a bass guitar.

One sub-plot that wraparounds both of the plots is about the Snow Golem. As the golem is grocery shopping, the Fire Wolves are attacking it. The cub then tries to stay with the Golem again and things get alot more hazardous. The plot features no dialogue whatsoever.

The last sub-plot for the episode is that El Chavo, who is the Waterboy for the volleyball championships, wishes to go to the Fuji Mounta to wish for three jelly sandwiches and a cyber-bicycle, using the aid of overfeeding a sheep to help him, despite the rules of Japan stating that sheeps are not aloud to eat too much food, due to a folk tale.

After the dodgeball tournament, Sparky is challenged by Dan into a "fight-dance" competition. With the help of the TV airings of Japan's popular television program, Romance Karate, Sparky must learn how to kick butt with the power of funk. Also, when Hiro decided to take a vacation, an intruder made of ink attacks the AnimeLand in which Hiro decided to search in Japan, but after a fatal incident that makes Hiro looks like a murderer, he transforms into a Japanese biker in disguise to find the real culprit.
