Plot Summary: At a young age, Yutaka Hoshino (Peco) is a table tennis fanatic who protects Makoto Tsukimoto (Smile) from bullying kids. As the years pass, they are both members of Katase High's table tennis club. Peco is very passionate about the game and dreams of playing professionally in Europe, but smile only plays it as a way to pass the time and, despite his natural talent, allows Peco to beat him out of consideration for his feelings.
