Plot Summary: Kenji Hatano originally wanted to be a baseball superstar, but didn't like how one player's mistake can hurt the whole team. Upon being shown a Kyōtei (hydroboat) race by his principal and sees a special turn called a Monkey Turn, he decides to try it out. After capsizing due to a Monkey Turn gone wrong, Kenji decides to become a professional Kyōtei racer. Two years later, he graduates from the Yamato training school and promises his friend Sumi Ubukata that he'll become Japan's no. 1 Kyōtei racer within three years.
