The Empty Three Seconds (空白の３秒間 Kuuhaku no 3 Byoukan?) is the sixteenth episode of the Area no Kishi anime. It aired on April 21, 2012.
Nana and Araki recognize Kakeru is playing like Suguru. While in that state, Kakeru bypasses Tsujido's defenses and passes the ball to Araki who is unable to reach the ball in time with his body. Kakeru soon returns to normal and has no recollection of what transpired after the collision. However, his penetration forces Tsujido to become more defensive, allowing Araki to score a goal. Enoshima scores a second goal through a series of passes and Kakeru scores the winning goal with the feint he had been developing.
