The story centers on Kimichika Haijima, who got into some serious trouble on his middle school volleyball team, and as a result transferred from Tokyo to Fukui prefecture, where he again met with his childhood friend, Yuni Kuroba. Yuni has overwhelming talent at volleyball but is weak to pressure, but together with Kimichika they become the ace combo of their team. But the two have a fight at the final prefecture tournament in middle school. Now in high school at Seiin High School, Kimichika and Yuni have severed their relationship, but both join the volleyball club. Along with the second-year and third-year students in the club, they work to make Seiin High School's volleyball club a rising star in Fukui prefecture.

Kabei (Kieli) launched the novel series in July 2013 with illustrations by Aiji Yamakawa (Chocolate Underground). The franchise also has a collection of short stories, and a manga adaptation by Yamakawa that launched in Shueisha's Cocohana magazine in its September 2018 issue.
