Elementary school soccer whiz Rakuichi Nagahama drew national attention a few years back with his IMPRESSIVE athletic skills. After disappearing to Italy for three years, Rakuichi reluctantly returns to the remote town where he grew up. The local high school soccer team cant wait to get their hands on the prodigy, despite the fact that he was obviously a FAILURE in Italy. But Rakuichis not sure hes ready to get back on the field. Sure, his best friend from elementary school (now a hot babe) cant wait to see him play againand his childhood rivals are eager to have another go against himand the entire school is counting on himbut how can Rakuichi live up to their expectations when hes sworn off the sport for good?
