Second Exam Arc
Yamikumo enrolled into Setouchi Keijo Training School and took the exams. She passed the first exam and continued to the second exam. She first appeared approaching Sayaka, talking about her past career while saying that she won't forgive her for making all of the people who had rely on her disappointed. With full of hatred she witnessed Sayaka on the first test of the second exam, the penalty kick. On the second test of the second exam, she tried to trick Miho Hashimoto to believe that Nozomi Kaminashi, Sayaka and their comrades were cheating. She also tried to trick other examinees by spreading such rumour.
On the final test of the second exam, the mock race, for the first race, she got her turn in group 1 along with Nozomi, Sayaka, and 9 other examinees. She sent three examinees who have been tricked by her to gang up on Sayaka. When one of them was defeated, she appeared behind Sayaka and launched a sudden attack by using her butt. However Sayaka was able to hold it, she praised her just like back then in Judo. They continued the fight. After threatening her mental, Sayaka lost her confidence while Yamikumo eliminated her. Sayaka fell down, while Nozomi reached and attacked Yamikumo to sink her, but Nozomi was fell out of the Land as well.
Later, she got her turn in group 3 for the second race, the same again as Nozomi and Sayaka. She engaged in fight against Sayaka for the second time, and noticed that Sayaka has regained her confidence. She finally was defeated and learned about what actually happened on the day of the qualification final match. Without knowing that Hayashida supported Sayaka's true dream for becoming a Keijo player, she cried and realized that her grudge and attempts to revenge was for no reason. Sayaka remarked that their fight was great. Sometime after the end of exam, she accompanied Sayaka to visit Hayashida at the hospital. She apologized for her misunderstanding and stated that she would definitely pay attention to Sayaka for becoming a great Keijo player.

Anime & Manga Differences
- Yamikumo only plays a very small amount of role in the anime. She only appears as a random examinee, and simply knows that Sayaka Miyata is a former Judoka. In addition, it seems that Sayaka doesn't recognize who is she. The plot line where she shows hatred towards Sayaka is not explained as well.
