Yuni and Kimichika had become the ace combo of their team in middle school, but they had a fight at the final prefecture tournament. 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.
