High school student Kimichika Haijima moves back to his hometown of Fukui after causing problems at Tokyo Junior High School’s volleyball club. There he is reunited with his childhood friend Yunii Kuroba, who has excellent physical abilities but cannot make use of them under pressure. Hajima, with his overwhelming passion and talent for volleyball, forms an ace duo with Kuroba.
The two enroll at Seiin High School, where they join the volleyball club. Awaiting them are the 163 cm hot-blooded captain Shinichirou Oda, the talented and sharp-tongued vice-captain Misao Aoki and his third-year pair, and second-year students, including Akito Kanno, who is always wearing long sleeves due to his allergy to sunlight.
The newborn team breaks its former shell of weakness and becomes Fukui’s rising star. This is a certain team’s journey to victory, with a series of fascinating rivals standing in their way. The synopsis is as written on my anime list.
