If you like Slam Dunk you may want to check this show out since there are enough similarities and differences to make this show worth watching. Even if you hate Slam Dunk you may want to give this show a try since it has a simple but fun storyline, with likeable characters, and some catchy music. The story begins with Kazuhiko Aikawai an ace basketball player at only 5 ft. 8 inches. After leading his high school Tendoj high to the National championships Aikawai transfers to Mizuho high. He decides to go there because he has lost his ability to enjoy playing basketball since his previous school was focused on winning only.

On his first day at Mizuho high school Aikawai learns that Mizuho has a great basketball team; however it the girls basketball team. The girl's basketball team has gone to the regionals 6 times. While the boy's basketball team hasn't been active in a long time since the star point guard Fujiwara got into an altercation with the team's former coach.

Since Aikawai loves basketball he is determined to get the boys basketball to become active again; however, the only four players on the boy's basketball team tend to ignore him. This leads Aikawai to end up spending a lot of time playing with the girl's basketball team since the girl's basketball coach thinks he'll be useful in helping the girl's improve their game. Even though ace player Aikawai's practicing with the girl's basketball team he never acts egotistical while playing with them. He simply acts politely and has fun. Aikawai also never gives up on getting the boys basketball team to play again regardless of their attitudes towards him.
