This "invisible power" which sounds like a pseudo-unity term for the lack of the team's friendship probably. And is Manabe burying his Rio team? The Rio team was not as clever but they weren't a bunch of weaklings either. Granted the middles were the worst and Miyashita fell too short of a genius that he so wanted her to be at that young age.
What makes this team any different?
