Anime Spotlight - Cheer Boys!!by Chih-Chieh Chang,
Break apart your limits and your common sense!
There is one sport in the world where you can be the main character by cheering for others--.
"Cheer Boys!!" is a cute story of college boys that have a bit of a special circumstance but devote their adolescence to cheerleading.
Disheartened with judo, Haruki Bando was invited by his childhood friend Kazuma Hashimoto to create "BREAKERS", an unprecedented boys' cheerleading team.
Those that came to join all were very characteristic in nature: argumentative Mizoguchi, voracious Ton, frivolous Kansai boys Gen and Ichiro, and Sho who has cheerleading experience.
A new challenge of boys who have a "desire to break apart" begins..!
