Just one ball builds bonds.
Tsukushi Tsukamoto is a boy with neither recommendation nor talent. But he has a passionate heart.
When he joins the Seiseki High School soccer club, which is distinguished in the western Tokyo area, his destiny starts turning around drastically.
The team is a gathering of quirky characters: Jin Kazama, who is a solitary soccer genius; Hisahito Mizuki is the captain of the team and a player far exceeding the level of high school ones; Atsushi Kimishita is the cool playmaker who plays as offensive midfielder just behind the striker; and Kiichi Ooshiba is a large forward, and cares only for scoring, lacking the commitment to his teammates —.
In harsh but gentle club activities, the boys start building invaluable ties.
The story depicts the sweaty efforts, miracles, and friendship of the Seiseki High School soccer team members who are entirely passionate and completely pure!!
